I am a picky shopper. I need a service that can find what I’m looking for. I know what I want. It’s just that I can’t seem to find it and I run out of patience in my searching.
If someone created a business to find what I’m searching for, I’d be willing to pay for this service. If the service was good, I`d be a repeat customer and become a great marketing agent.
What kind of things am I looking for?
Let’s start at the bottom … underwear. I have particular preferences in color, fabric, and style. I also like my undergarments to match. And yes, I’d like everything to fit. I know I’m not the only woman facing this frustration. Sure Rants A Lot, Rant #27 raises a similar issue.
Sometimes I’m looking for items that are already produced by a major manufacturer – I just can’t find the particular item I’m looking for at any of the locations where I’m searching.
On other occasions, I have something in mind that I haven’t actually seen – I want a skirt like this, only in a different fabric, and with the zipper on the side, not in the back. My requests might even require the services of a tailor, a clothing designer, or a custom shoe maker.
But I don’t want to do the shopping or other arrangements. I want to pay someone else to take care of the details for me and get me what I want.
This concept could eventually expand to offer wardrobe planning and consultation services. Or … it could go a different direction and specialize in finding other types of items that people are searching for.
Is anyone up for the challenge of pursuing this business opportunity?
