> I've got too much inventory and not enough cash ... please help
> solve my problem.
> This Saturday I am opening the new warehouse to customers for the
> first time ever. I mainly need to sell educational and hobby kits
> for kids. Come see the biggest selection of educational science
> kits, robot kits, plastic and wood model kits you have ever seen in
> one place. Everything on display will be on sale with many items
> below my cost. Unlike simple toys that completely fade from memory
> after a few weeks, these kits teach your kids science and
> engineering information and skills that last a lifetime. The
> selection includes products from the web site and lots of other
> things too! You will have a lot of fun looking and see deals too
> hard to pass by.
> I will also have odds and ends of my regular electronic and robot
> products but the sale is primarily for kids products. No kids? Grab
> something for a niece, nephew or neighbor or to scavenge for your
> next project. Please tell your friends!
> When: Saturday, January 10, 2008 from 10:00am until 3pm.
> Where: 282 Harbor Way, Unit D, South San Francisco, CA 94080
> What you will find on sale:
> - OWI and Tamiya robot kits
> - Erector, Fischertechnik, KNEX, Bridge Street Girder & Panel, and
> Superstructs building sets

> - Plastic and Wood Model Kits
> - Bachman and Lionel train sets
> - R/C Cars, Helicopters and Planes
> - Odds & Ends
> Please note: This is really a warehouse. Its not a great
> environment for young kids or dress-up clothes. The warehouse often
> feels colder than outdoors, dress warm! There is plenty of street
> parking ... the building parking lot is reserved for other tenants.
> I don't have my own signage, just walk in the garage door at the
> front of the building near the "282" sign. If you get lost or need
> other help on Saturday call 650-588-4646. I will be working with
> little or no help, so things may get hectic during the middle of
> the day. If time allows I'll be glad to help with products from my
> regular inventory or give you the grand tour.
> Can't make it to the warehouse this Saturday? I have lots of on-
> line specials too:
> If you need help choosing, try my gift guide:
> Don't forget to browse the rest of the site for thousands of other
> gift and project items at my normal great prices.
> Would you like to be able to shop in person at Hobby Engineering on
> a regular basis? I want to help! But I need your help -- please
> shop at this sale and then keep coming back for your project
> supplies. I need to get Hobby Engineering Internet fully healthy
> again before reopening the store -- my first attempt at retail just
> about killed me. I know a lot more about retail now, but I'm still
> dumb enough to give it another try. One thing I've learned is that
> while every successful retail store needs a web site, successful
> web sites don't need retail stores. Hobby Engineering will be a
> purely on-line store while the retail business will have a
> different name, different (but overlapping) product mix and
> different policies. Curious? Take a peek:
> If you like our products and services, please tell a friend or post
> a link on your web site. Please let me know if you have any
> comments or suggestions regarding our newsletter, web site, product
> line or service.

> A supply store for people who want to build robots, electronic
> gadgets, kinetic art or anything else that moves, beeps or flashes.
