I don’t know that I’d depart from my engineering path to open a ‘craft store.’ This isn’t exactly the best time to start a small business. Etsy reaches hundreds of thousands of people. There is no overhead (or if there is its relatively low) and you can shop there 24/7. Convenience is big for me so the internet is usually my go-to first stop. Would I go to a wedding craft shop in my area? Maybe. I’m not going to lie and say, “yes, absolutely!” I do think there is a lot of money to be made in the wedding business, I just don’t know if a shop like that is necessarily where to find it :-/

That being said, my best girl friend in college quit school during her senior year and moved to California to start working in the wedding industry. No experience, no credentials. She now makes a TON of money designing million dollar weddings. Sometimes it really does pay off to follow your dreams.

ETA: To answer your question – I think the wedding world needs an inexpensive place to rent lounge furniture! And I’m saying this in all seriousness. The cutesy, craft things you can find anywhere or make yourself. Its the practical things that break the bank!
