I am so close to launch now, I have ALL the feelings about it. Getting all the stock delivered really gave me this sense of an idea actually coming to fruition. I’ve often day dreamed in the past of business ideas, a bakery, dog groomers, consignment store but this was the one that really stuck with me and that I could see myself doing long term.
I am getting huge mileage out of the deliveries arriving, my boys are ripping open the boxes with great enthusiasm. It’s like online shopping on a grand scale. My husband gives me this look when he sees me wearing new things, of course he knows it’s from the shop but I don’t tell him exactly how many pieces I’m keeping for myself. Margins and all!
In other exciting news I managed to secure an Italian handbag supplier that I am very happy with. I hadn’t initially set out to stock handbags in this price range, but I couldn’t resist once I saw what they had to offer. All 100% leather and made in Italy. I’m undecided as to which one (ahem) to keep for myself.
