I have been thinking about what it would take to open a craft shop / cafe. It's amazing how much you can think about on an hour commute to work.
Floor Plan - how much space is needed, and for what?
Inventory - would I have to offer products for sale? would that be the primary source of income?
Cafe - menus, staffing, health codes, insurance
Craft Area - layout per space, rental fees, annual memberships (why couldn't I offer annual sign ups, just like a gym??)
Entertainment - music? chick flicks? special events?
Overnights - even weekend events - how about renovating a bed and breakfast??
