I want to talk about a small business idea that I have considered opening – an arts and crafts cafe. I will rent a property in a popular yet serene area with enough space for a coffee bar, tables inside and outside, and a workshop in the back. It will be an ingenious environment for people to come and spend time with their friends or on their own to make something over a cup of coffee.
Nowadays, people are into crafting, and there has been a surge in craft classes in local communities and on social media. So, from this space, I got the idea of this cafe that would be dedicated to arts and crafts. The creative space of the workshop area will also allow pets and classes will be held regularly. These features will be advertised and will be available for those paying a small fee. Materials will be made available for people to knit, crochet or draw. I will encourage people to donate craft items on a sharing basis. For instance, if you bring something to share, you can take something in return. It will encourage people to meet fellow makers and make new connections in the community.
If possible, I would like to start this business in the next five years, starting with a small plot and then possibly expanding into a larger space if the revenues allow. My next move will be to build a learning centre next to the workshop so that people can also learn other skills and expand their horizons. I do not yet have the time, money, or resources to start this business, as reasonably, a lot would be needed to rent and renovate a space. I am still pondering the ‘ideal’ property to do this in, which will probably be an old vintage English village.
