  1. I am really wanting to get a shop going but am not that sure what to make so I am asking for everyone's opinions. I am planning on making it speciality with a focus on certain items. I am also wondering where players want the shop. I have a free residence and can go pretty much anywhere.

    Enchants, potions, fireworks, stone (and stone goods), wood, crops, armor/weapons, or something else people come up with.

  2. Fireworks would be unique because there are very few shops that sell them.
  3. A blue shop - oh I get it a Quartz shop :D
  4. redstone
  5. Redstone/Enchants
  6. Quick little bump
  7. SMP1 doesn't have any fireworks shops. ;)
  8. From what I've seen, firework shops don't do well at all. It would be good as sort of a side thing, but I don't think that should be the main focus. I think enchanted book shops do really well though and nether item shops.

  9. Actually, i had a customized firework shop on smp3. It did so well, i burned out xD

    Anyway, what shop you open (if you're looking to be unique) depends largely on what smp you're going to be on. Diff smp's demand diff things because the players all adapt a certain community =P

  10. I am thinking about smp2 right now. Do you still have your firework shop? I would like to take a look at it and see an example of how you laid it out.
  11. Nope, I shut it down long ago. It basically held a hallway and a room that branched off. The hallway had a step-by-step what-to-write-in-a-book-and-quill and then led to another hallway that had a step-by-step what effects/colors/special effects you could order, how many of each, and etc etc all the details with pricing. At the end of the hallway was a checklist and a hopper for the book and quill to be thrown in. The room branching off the end was an example room to show what certain effects like Burst and Twinkle looked/sounded like.
  12. What were your prices like?
  13. A firework never went over 300r individually, even if someone ordered the most expensive prices (cheap xD).
    I offered discounts if they provided materials for the fireworks, but I also set it so there was a base fee so I'd make money even if they provided all materials (50r per firework, plus extra if the height was more than 1).

  14. Are you two talking about redstone the item or redstone creations? Both seem like a good idea but I figured I would ask.
