Expansion Potential:

Expansion potential is great I have been doing children parties and adult parties but there is much scope for more e.g. Hen parties, baby showers etc. I don't use the cafe in the evenings as I have my daughter to look after but evening openings would be good especially in summer and Sundays opening would be a very good potential earner.

Competition / Market:

There is no competition for a pottery painting business it has been very busy in the last 2 years the nearest one being in Falmouth and on rainy days in St Ives there is not much else to do with children.
