Go to www.etsy.com and list your shop and the products. Try taking up a kiosk in a nearby mall - that nay be expensive and you may be late to get a space for the coming holiday season.

Etsy is good. Check the website and you will understand why.

Hope this helps.

Try the local "Mirrors" in North York and similar areas where there is quite a concentration of whites .

Whites appreiciate good stuff and spend to keep themselves / their houses beautiful.

Desi's always try to make a deal and reduce their expenses to the bare minimum.

So it is wise of the poster to advise you to concentrate on Whites / Gora's.
During Christmas, wreaths are found only in white people's home. I have hardly seen any wreaths in the desi homes that I have visited, even though majority were christians.

peace

Few marketing tips for you :
1. Fliers
You must create nice fliers with pictures of wreath decorated on door etc. send it along local free newspapers.
Also use tear away fliers on local shops, grocery stores.
You can also go door to door to place your cards/fliers.
2. Ebay
3. Cost competitiveness - study the market and cost of wreaths, keep the cost competitive or give some deals.
4. Look for shops which sell wreaths and talk to them to place your pieces on the shop. you can go to decoration/light stores even dollar stores.
5. Attend events such as sunday market, local fair or go to community places etc in various localities.
6. Always attach your contact and website / FB page address on the price tag when you sell wreath.

Have good holiday season !
