    As a retail buyer I reccomend:
    1. make a line sheet
    2. make samples
    3. show them at big shows such as magic as well as small alternative shows like pool (pool has lines like 7th letter and obey)
    4. try to get into a show room in the california mart (new mart if possible or the cooper)
    5. start mailing out free samples to people and mail to celebs to promote if you wanna make big bucks
    6. go to stores you are interested in and stores you're not even that interested in as long as it looks like they might carry your lable and ask to speak with the buyer and shmooz

    A line sheet is basically a printed page or pages
    with photos and descriptions of your goods.
    Like a catalog but usually not professionally printed.
