Business Description

Premium American Internet store selling gifts & art for 20 years!

This online entrepreneurial opportunity will provide the buyer with a valuable domain name 2000gifts.com, an instant income and a full inventory of popular Leanin' Tree™ brand greeting cards and gifts, Maija mini-posters, as well as any other merchandise. All feature beautiful and original artwork by outstanding independent artists from around the country and world.

The business is ideal for someone with webmaster skills wishing to supplement their income with a simple yet profitable business and tax advantages. This is also an opportunity to start your first or new online business and learn all aspects of handling the inventory, shipping the merchandise, and receiving payments from Internet customers.

Order processing is handled by PayPal: including item selection, charging credit/debit cards, printing invoices, packing slips and shipping labels. PayPal holds the resulting revenue or transfers it to your bank.

Understanding the art and familiarity with the world of artists are also helpful. You can also use the retail inventory and fixtures as a supplement to your art gallery, gift store, or framing shop.

2000 GIFTS - is a premium American store selling Leanin' Tree posters and greeting cards for 20 years! Clicks on Google AdSense ads on the web pages provide additional income.

Since 1999 the owner had a brick-and-mortar gift store/art gallery in the largest city mall in Anchorage, the Dimond Center, called 2000 Gifts & Arts. Pictures of this store are available here: www.2000gifts.com/Leanin-Tree--business-for-sale.html

From 2006 the store started conversion to online sales, and from 2008 all sales, mostly of posters and greeting cards, became online only.

In the past years the owner was involved in other business and occupations in the construction industry, publishing and legal works, and keeping and updating the website. Having to hold all of the responsibilities, packing and shipping merchandise became an unnecessary burden.

The owner has no intention to stay in retail business, however, the website itself has continued to be popular. This website can live much longer and make a fortune in the hands of a new owner, who can pick up the business with purchasing the remaining assets and domain name, and redevelop the website, adding new functions as the customers' wish list, friends' list, and having friends buy gifts for their friends for any occasion. Structure of this new business could include drop-shipments from the manufacturers or other retail stores, as well as buying the inventory on demand after the order was placed.

The buyer has an opportunity to watch and learn how this business is functioning today. This is very simple, without any need to contact the seller first. To do so, please open the website, www.2000gifts.com, and order something online, like a few $2.25 greeting cards or something else. All stages of ordering and receiving the item will be checking out in their usual everyday format. It is similar to how people buy products on Amazon.com or elsewhere.

The asking price is just $7,500. Payment: bank transfer, cash, cashiers check, and CAN BE PAID BY CREDIT CARD. At this page you can see photos of display racks and the former brick-and-mortar store, 2000 Gifts & Arts - http://www.2000gifts.com/Leanin-Tree--business-for-sale.html
