The sunnier weather certainly brought people out today...I can't wait for it to be a bit warmer though, so that I can open up both of the French doors and arrange furniture and other bits and bobs outside.
In between customers I whipped-up a couple more cushions, as they are fast becoming one of my best sellers...
I have another crinoline lady cushion half completed too, which will be a project for next week.
I am wondering if I should be closed an extra day to give me more of a chance to buy vintage stock and to sew/design new items. I like to be very selective about what goes into the shop, which does of course take time - Its very difficult running the business single handed...perhaps Wednesdays would be a good day, as the end of the week is proving to be the time to be open. This is a very steep learning curve for me and its all trial and error at the moment! Decisions...decisions!
Another snippet of news is that I was photographed in the shop today for the Shepton Mallet Journal, which should be in next weeks edition all about the regeneration of the town. Hopefully that will mean more locals will come and find me...and perhaps treat themselves to something nostalgic!
Hope you're enjoying your weekend,
