Our SHELF.SPACE concept lets budding entreprenurs, emerging designers or online boutiques set up a retail store with low cost and low risk.
Our concept allows you to have a retail space without the day to day hassle of running a retail store.
SHELF.SPACE concept fosters creative entrepreneurship by cultivating idea sharing among our partners.
The SHELF.SPACE entrepreneurs can rent space on a monthly basis. They then outfit a rack or shelf with their latest designs and biographical information about their line. By not catering to a particular niche, SHELF.SPACE is able to fully embrace the community's diverse style and creativity. The result is a kaleidoscopic shopping experience.
