I continue to do business update posts and how we are moving forward with things, because I want to inspire and encourage others (especially stay at home mums) who have been dreaming up little dreams for themselves. I want to show that with time and patience you can weave your way. If you do have a little business or something you're weaving your way with or dreaming of it, please consider answering the question at the end of this post. I'd love to hear about your stories and dreams.
Most of you know by now that a lot of hours have gone into getting ready for My Vintage Childhood for the weekend market scene. Despite the cancellation of our first market this past weekend due to torrential rain, there is still other news to share.
Now that we are fully market ready, I have extra time up my sleeve again which means time for other plans, projects and study. First up will be the re-dedication of time back into our store tab for Facebook. A reasonable start has already been made, but it all came to a halt when market preparations took over. It's a good thing that things halted where they did because postage rates have changed in Australia which would have meant a lot of ground work on this matter to adjust things.
I realise completely that I'm doing things possibly back to front (in some peoples eyes) ie. market ready, shop display in place etc. But I work on things happening organically and when they're just meant to happen and fall into place. I just continue to have faith that it will all comes together that others will enjoy what I have to offer (when stock goes online on in our decked out store with cart and checkout) because I've taken the time and not rushed it.
On the home organisational front, it looks like I'm back on the move and I am moving back to the office. The office already is the home for all my vintage stock garments, but me and my trusty sewing machine, a few tid bits and storage solutions are moving back in there. This will be great to give me one central location for processing stock (clothing and small items ie. toys etc). The freed up space in the garage will now allow the Big V freedom to reorganise himself and woodwork tools and so forth. Furthermore we will have additional space for items we are processing, restoring and storing like vintage rocking horses, cradles and much more.
In other news I have an update on my shop display and things are going well, my display is getting attention and sales have been made. I'm really thrilled and pleased and I'll soon be working on adding another string to this bow of which I'm in planning and research stage at present. I look forward to giving you all updates on that in the near future.
I have plenty more I'm keen to share but what I really want to know is, if you have a little at home business or would like to create a little something for yourself? Where are you at in the whole process, are you starting out, still in dreaming phase, been pottering away for a while now? Please share as I'm keen to hear other people's experiences, perhaps we can create a little community to support and encourage one another to just keep moving forward no matter the setbacks.
