The Store



I am up to my eyeballs in Garage Sale. We are participating in a community wide Garage Sale this Saturday and it has taken over my life, LOL. Going through my "old stuff" has brought back a lot of memories of my store, since I still have quite a bit of product....
Did I ever tell you all about my past?
My children's business? Well some of you knew me then, but for those that didn't, for seven short years, I had a children's business and along with that for a brief time I also had a brick and mortar location.
The "Store" was sooooo much fun but widely stressful!!! It is a lot to bite off, but the good times far out weighed the bad.
I had a blast planning special events, merchandising, going to market, coming up with fun new ideas to promote my little shop. If any of you ever get the urge. Talk to me first! I can live through you. I am very happy that chapter of my life has closed but it is fun to look back too.
I thought I'd share some photos, this is the store. The photos speak much better then I do.
I also designed children's clothing ( sold at this store and many others), we can go there another day!

You are so talented, Jennifer! What a fun store. BTW, I usually don't take the time to comment, but I wanted you to know I check your site almost daily and practically live by your style advice.

How fun! I bet in some ways you miss it. Although I know it must have been hard work.

I worked in retail for a couple of different stores...going to Market was by far my favorite part. We always went to Dallas Market...I was like a kid in a candy store! That seems like a lifetime ago!

Jennifer-I never saw pictures of your store. I'm glad you posted them. Obviously, it was darling. I wish I could have walked in/been blown in there myself. (little Wyoming humor for you) I'm glad you look back on it fondly.

The store was so cute! I've always wanted to open a little boutique, but don't think I could handle all the stress. Just thinking about it raises my blood pressure! Ha!
