Some boutique stores Jeans West, Just Jeans, http://www.jayjays.com.au/, CottonOn to name the main ones.
When buying at these boutique stores there are just a tonne of accessories at the counter you can look at while they put the sale through and I could really see your product being one of them.
I think an online presence would be awesome too. Like most of the world, more and more Australians are buying online.
All things to keep in mind. As I said if you're interested going down that path I'm happy to offer tips etc or even help out. I have experience in eCommerce and have contacts with capital who might be interested in something like this.
Fingers crossed all goes well for you with winter over there!
Happy to help out further you can email me too if you want.

No problem at all. If it goes well over in the US and Europe that is a good sign that it will sell in Australia. While we have our unique fashion trends we are still largely influenced by the US. For example, jeans and boots are very popular in winter here too.
It really depends what branding and reputation you want to give your product when it comes to what store you would sell to. For example you could hit up the big department stores which would get lots of buyers but I think the price would be lower. Alternatively you could focus on boutique stores where the market is more targeted and prices could be higher.
The major department stores in Australia are Kmart, Target, Big W, Myer, David Jones. The last two are a little more 'upmarket'.

i've been on a little break away from my hometown and purposefully didn't bring my laptop with me (giving my information addiction a little break for once). I'm currently studying mechanical engineering and product creation and design is the exact area i want to look into once i'm done.
I'm currently looking to get some kind of side income from adsense, affiliate marketing and reselling (drop shipping) other peoples products. Once I have some considerable success online and the experience I am looking to get into product creation (informational and physical). My strengths would naturally be in these areas, however, I'm trying to gain a strong understand of internet marketing, SEO and keyword/niche selection type of stuff.
Hit me up if you ever want to chat about product ideas and muse creation stuff. It's nice to speak to likeminded people in the same boat.
Perhaps we could work on a muse together ourselves someday.

So as plan b I tried to post parties as I got them, but my connections were to weak and the viewers declined. And I basically decided it was a flawed idea, or I did not execute it boldly/confidently enough (I had brought friends on and had a sort of lack of leadership+I was a bit nervous about the whole thing). Overall though, an excellent experience, I learned how to create a website, about ads, about leading people (at its peak I had 5 friends helping out), I also learned when to cut an idea.
So next for me is I will be participating in the shopify challenge and I aim to either produce one of my inventions or do a wholesale deal....the details are here- http://fourhourworkweek.com/vBulleti...ead.php?t=7323 . Thanks for reading and if you have any advice or comments let me know.
05-22-2011 04:43 AMbsiegeWell I will write a bit about my self just to give everyone of where I'm at and where I want to go. I am a mechanical engineering student, and have always wanted to turn my inventions into businesses. Some are large scale, and others are small scale. So I plan on starting with the small low cost ideas and working my way up as I gain more capital.
My first business was a complete failure, but I learned a lot and lost very little. It was www.collegepartyconnection.com . It's goal was to act as a site that posted frat parties so everyone could see and not just those people in the frats facebook group. It began to gain momentum at my university, but then all the frats suddenly quit bc the head of all frats decided that it was exposing them to the police too much. My full goal was to make it into a site that would host parties at clubs and also draw revenue from ads.

05-03-2011 05:54 PMLifestyleDesignDear BSiege,
I apologize sincerely for not getting this message sooner. I don't spend much time on the computer, and less on the forum.
I can recommend Cal's books without hesitation. There are three, and I believe one is specifically geared towards study techniques. If you're strapped for cash, that's the one to go for.
They helped me in my school and personal life significantly. It really shaped me up, and the second I stopped adhering to it and got lazy the negative effect was apparent. Easily worth the 9 bucks or so it costs on Amazon!
