This Little Shoppe of Mine

I opened my little shoppe 21/2 years ago.  It was somewhat on a whim, a dream and my fantasy that people loved vintage, they just didn't know it yet.



My business plan was in my head with a few notes written on scattered scrap paper. 

Through tremendous hard work, trial and error and support from friends, family and customers, I kept going.

Some days are better than others. I love both for different reasons. On slow days I manage to accomplish paperwork, rearrange and hopefully restyle.  On crazy days I am thankful for the purchases and the visits.

If you think for a second that I only work in the shoppe, you're not too smart.  When I work in the shop, it's the reward for the work I did behind the scenes.

Painting at midnight, driving to source product, ordering when needed, the computer work, the paperwork...it rarely ends.

I don't want it to end!

I am beyond thankful. I'm thankful for this opportunity and I'm thankful for the results.  I'm thankful for the people the shoppe has brought into my life.

I enjoy each step of the process.  Ok, not the paperwork!  
As I look for ways to improve myself and the shoppe, I know I want to keep my dream going.

This past weekend was ah-mazing!  The energy in the shoppe was festive and shoppers were merry.  It was the reward for the craziness that made it possible.  Black Friday & Small Business Saturday



I know it's a long post, but it's been a long month of restyling, planning and decision making.

Thanks for reading and thank you for your continued support of Vintage Restyled.  It makes a difference in the lives of many.  And it is most appreciated!

Cheers to a Merry Season!
