 > 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.

 > 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:
 > http://www.hobbyengineering.com/Specials.html
 > If you need help choosing, try my gift guide:
 > http://www.hobbyengineering.com/DeptXG.html
 > 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.
 > Sincerely,
 > -- Al Margolis, founder www.HobbyEngineering.com www.theIMIMstore.com
 > A supply store for people who want to build robots, electronic
 > gadgets, kinetic art or anything else that moves, beeps or flashes.
