I've no clue if this is even the best spot to post this or even where to start..

So there's a tiny lil shop in the next town from me that sells soda-based drinks - start with a monster say, add some strawberry puree, creamer, etc.. and its  a $5/44oz delicious concoction... 

A lot of the drinks are based on energy drinks or sodas that are canned - I figure if I can get on the owner's radar a lil, I could maybe get the empty cans from him, with some sorta mutually beneficial deal, at the least I could pay him a lil for the cans he saves for me, at the most maybe he could sell some of my builds on consignment and when I get into the farmer's markets / craft market stuff I can advertise for him. 

Should be win/win ... 

I've talked to the owner a few times, he thinks the lil guitars are cool and he's friendly, but trying to actually get a hold of him to talk seriously about this stuff has been difficult - he's not always at the soda shop, he doesn't always respond to face book, I don't have a direct number or email for him ... etc.. 

Best I can come down to is building a few sample units and leaving them at his shop for him with my biz card... Anyone have any other ideas? Thoughts? experience?

I was thinking of approaching the few smoke shops in the area about selling instruments on consignment maybe - all the smoke shops around are lil mom-and-pop type deals, there's possibly a few convenience stores/gas stations I might be able to get product into.. not sure what's best there though, trusting to sell when I'm not there and all.. 

All this kinda applies to other arts/crafts I guess... Just right now my life has been all canjo all the time

Looks like you have your plan In order!! I say pray about it and go for it!!

I barely have two dimes to rub together at the moment, even working full time at the day job... 

So dunno much for praying about seems the message is I need to move on from what I been doing one way or the other.
