Title: Canned Food Storage - for selling
Post by: Billie D on April 21, 2018, 09:45:00 AM
Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, I searched the forum and couldn't find anything.

I'm toying with the idea of building and selling can rotation systems (small shelf style, and large upright) and storage bins for potato/opinions, etc (the type I remember our grandmas having).

The thought being, it's always good to have a little side hustle, it'd be a way to play in the garage and make a little side money.  We have several "Junk in then Trunk" style sales in the area, and Craigslist.

Has anyone tried, and had nay luck doing something like this? I'm a sucker for any kind of storage/organization type stores, and love the idea of maybe getting someone new into putting up some food.

Thoughts?

sounds like a good idea if you have a really super design and they are reasonably priced... depending on where you live, this type of item would possibly appeal to more than just homesteading/prepper types, too.

Yes. Build several samples, prototypes.
Find you a place that will carry them, or sell for you.

Or, build them kit style, so you can ship them.

That link is to some that I made a few years back in the old house.  it might give you some ideas for yours if you do not have plans already.  I always thought that making singles of the front loading version to mount in a shelving unit would sell, but never took it any where.

Any way some food for thought.

Thanks DDJ!  That looks great :)
I'm gonna play around with design ideas this weekend.
