I've never been one for roller coaster rides. In fact I only ever went on one once and that was enough! I literally thought I was going to die that day with my heart beating so fast and hard I thought it was going to burst out of my chest. Yep, that was the first and VERY LAST time I had gone on one some thirty years ago and swore I would never go on one again.
Yet here I find myself on one again for the last 5 months since opening my store!
I liken it to a roller coaster as there are sooo many ups and downs it's just exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. Except this time I don't want to get off.
I am so happy and grateful that I have the opportunity doing what I love and working in my own shop that I will take the good the bad and the ugly all in the name of following my passion no matter what the outcome.
It's definitely been a learning experience and I still have a lot to learn .. about my customers and the business. I've had really good feedback so far. I've learnt through time that the childrens' vintage toy section was probably not a good idea so will be replacing that with something else like womens' clothing. One can only try different ideas till I get it right.
I love my new bright pink banners... if that doesn't flag people down I don't know what will.
I know it's been a while since posting and I will try to post more often about the journey and what I'm up to.
So take care and until next time,
