$40 for a T-shirt? Give me three of 'em!

I was at a concert last night and an epiphany came upon me as I was waiting to buy horribly overpriced merchandise for my stepsister. I want to use this epiphany to further my job responsibilities. I just don't know how to go about it!

The company I work for is multi-faceted and one of our divisions handles promotional products. Since we primarily work with healthcare, the promotional products are limited to pens and the occassional travel mug that hospitals need for events. (Also, I'm not involved in the promo department, but I'm in the interesting position of being able to if it turns out I have a knack for it.)
So as I was waiting to buy $40 T-shirts for my 16-year-old stepsister and her friend, I realized "I'm in the wrong business." I want to try to integrate selling concert merchandise into our business. I just don't know what resources are available for this - who hires merch people? The record label? The venue?
If anyone has any ideas about this, or experience, I could really use a good jumping off point!
Thank you in advance!
