Your Impossible Dream Here
Your Own Pop-Up Store
"Dreams really do come true... I rented the Studio for to do my own art and run classes. The location and lighting are great. It's a place to meet new and accomplished artists... a real creative hub in Florence." --Lisa Riley
Now is the time to realize your dream at the Impossible Dream Studio. You can rent the building to run as your own store at low-cost and low-risk. Have you looked into commercial rental prices? Holy Cow! Who can afford to invest that kind of money in a new venture when you're just starting out?
The Impossible Dream Studio is available for rent on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
What Kind of Businesses Make Great Pop-Ups?
Retail and Services businesses are best. Some examples are below:
Teach a class
Music, art, crafts, how to speak "Pirate", watch repair, etc...
HUGE NEED RIGHT NOW:
CHILDREN'S PROGRAMMING!!!! ARTS, CRAFTS, SUMMER CAMPS... THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO FILL A CRITICAL NEED IN FLORENCE...
Retail store or boutique
Do you design clothes or jewelry?
Sell prepackaged, cottage industry foods (in accordance with State of Texas rules)
Test the market for your baked goods, pickles, herbal teas, cakes, etc...
Rehearsal and Performance space
your garage rock band needs a place to rock out, dance group, etc...
Halloween decorations, Christmas ornaments, etc...
Art gallery (solo or group show)
Non-profit or charity work
What about a Café?
Sorry, currently the building does not have the infrastructure to support Williamson Co. kitchen permit. But that doesn't mean you can't sell pre-packaged foods, such as those outlined in the Texas Cottage Industry Law.
Ready to take your Bible study group to the Next level?
Have you and your small fellowship ever wished you could open your own church, however, you are too small to afford to rent or buy your own building? What are you waiting for? Rent the Impossible Dream Studio every Sunday (or other day / evening) for once per week gatherings.
The Dream is in your Grasp
For $35 each Sunday, you can have a space to meet, pray, meditate, and even use the patio for an after service pot-luck. If you only have 7 people, and each donates $5, you can have 1000 square feet, plus a patio. What a low risk way to start your church. You don't have to be set up as a 501c3 non-profit.
This is your moment to step out of the past and create what you want.
All faiths and beliefs welcome... so long as they are lawful in the state of Texas.
Pop Up Churches are an American Tradition
Why is it so Affordable?
I was lucky enough to finally achieve my impossible dream of opening my own art studio. Artists and entrepreneurs have to struggle to get started, especially when it comes to retail space. The costs are prohibitive. I want to help others try out their dreams in a low-risk environment.
Also, the building doesn't have telephone or internet service. In addition there's no central heat and air. I pass all of these savings on to you... call it an analogue dividend!
