Looking for a business partner for unique shop concept (ROMFORD)

Fed up with the rat race? Feeling stressed out and worthless?

Are you dedicated, hardworking and have time/ money to invest?

Volunteers also welcome to apply who have some time on their hands.

Looking for an ambitious trustworthy business partner(s) to help set up a coffee/ tea shop concept combined with a self help gift shop. Not just any teas and coffees: I can make nice fresh herbal teas for instance that relax and heal the mind and body.

The gift shop closed two recently due to high rents/ low footfall in the small shopping hall where it was based.

The gift shop ran for 4 years selling healing crystals, gemstones, new age items like sage, angel tarot cards

Also sold baby/ wedding gifts, pet gifts’, unusual hand crafted gifts and knick-knacks.

It started life as a Christian Catholic shop selling rosaries, prayer cards, baptism Christening gifts and a wide range of unique greeting cards from religious spiritual to unique specialist independent cards covering all occasions.

I am waiting for a shop to become available on the cheaper end of the High Street in Romford- have already spoken with Landlord agents. Other areas nearby considered too.

Ideally someone who wants to run a retail shop business and hopefully expand and open others in other areas too.
You will get a share in the retail shop in return for investment and time. To be discussed in detail later and we would have a written agreement thats fair for both of us.

Please reply for further details.
I have around £30K gross value of stock thats in storage, ready to go.
You would be someone who wants to run the business full time with me helping part-time. Other part-time staff will also be needed in busy times.
You would have some money to invest but more importantly, be dedicated and believe in this concept and willing to work full time.
I have dozens and dozens of regular customers who would form the basis from which to expand. 6 months after the shop closed, I am getting calls each week from people wanting crystals or gemstones or jewellery or devotional cards or to a lesser extent, spiritual Christian religious cards and figures.
You would expect to take a wage pretty much straight away given that this is not a new shop but a delayed relocation of an existing business.
Due to financial commitments I can only work part-time in the shop as I have a full-time job.

We only live once, let's make the most of it and help others too.

Heres more info:
I may do a crowdfunder appeal if appropriate too. I believe this concept based around "self-help" in all its guises would take off. Most people are inherently lonely, stressed or depressed. I want to create a place that can help and connect. People need to find meaning and connection in life. We are too materialistic these days obsessed with sexy gadgets, celebrity and political correctness and moved away from our inner spiritual self. We are being brainwashed by the Establishment and Globalist Corporations who are interested in more profits for less pay and keeping the status quo. Everything is made of energy so if someone gets solace or a placebo effect from crystals or gemstones or indeed rosaries and crucifix: its a good thing, not a bad thing.
Age or background not important- 18 or 38 or 68 is fine, shop suits women, men too.
I am also looking for someone who wants to help out occasionally or regularly each week to start, maybe a job in the near future as trade picks up. Would suit a retired person or someone younger with a couple of spare hours here and there. Volunteers welcome too with the chance to shine and help take the shop forward and hopefully then get fully paid later on once trade improves. Expenses would be provided off course.

I am going through an expensive separation too so things are not easy. I sell lots of angels but a real life angel would be great too! Expenses, refreshments etc would be covered for the right person.
I am a 40's year old male who got fed up with the rat race and who's looking to expand the shop once things pick up. I feel passionately about this project. I also do writing and film projects as a script writer and film-maker. I am non-pc and like to break the boundaries of comedy, sci-fi, romcoms, thrillers etc. Who knows? Hollywood next?
Join me on an amazing experience.
Time waits for no-one but there is so much magic and beauty that is waiting to be harnessed.
