I would like to know what everyone does to get their products to shops and boutiques. What techniques do you have? Any tips?

There is one thing that we always recommend when approaching retailers and shops. You should always have a line sheet or catalog of your products. Without this you will be going empty handed and making the shops work harder. The line sheet should have all the important information about your products including prices, delivery, materials etc. Here are some great resources for anyone interested in learning more about line sheets and catalogs for their products.

Find a shop that's fairly new and mostly empty. Those are the kinds of people who started with one small shop and sell one product but have more room then they need. They will likely setup your product on display for a commission. Big stores charge a fee to get your product on the shelves. Walmart buy's wholesale from factories and won't likely let you sell your product. Would be nice if they did have swap meets in their parking lots, but then no one would be able to get into the store.
