what have i done

oh i think i'm going to throw up...but here i am telling all of you that i've done it...i'm going to do a second hand store here out in the middle of nowhere...i've been thinking about it for months, no, years...but it's actually going to become a reality starting next month. i'm paying rent and i'm going to start building up my merchandise during the winter months so that next summer, if i'm still alive after my panic attacks, i will be able to have a store where you can buy second hand treasures of furniture and trinkets, and where i will also be sewing up pillows and table runners, aprons and handbags...seriously, i'm scared out of my mind, but if i don't try, i'll never know if it would of worked or not.

p.s. would you happen to sell goats at this store??

V and Co. said...

hahaha! ah no on the goats

Lisa said...

That's so fantastic! I'm thrilled for you. Wish I lived near you so I could come buy everything!

You should do an Etsy site too for the store. It would be a great way for all of us to buy your shippable stuff, and for you to get more people in the bricks & mortar store!

Congratulations!

So this second hand store, are you going to fix things up and sell them? Like what you do in your house? Or would you sell some of your stuff in your house? Cause if you do I'm so driving down to your store!!!

SLO Rober said...

HOLY- EXCITING- COW BATMAN! Now the hardest thing is going to be deciding whether to sell it or keep it for yourself! Thoughts of success are being sent your way!
p.s. how is school going so far for the kids?

OH Good.
Now it won't be so strange when I stop by to meet you. A store isn't as scary as showing up at your door.
How cool.
I have always thought it would be cool to have a boutique with family or something.
Way to go. Can you stock it all by yourself?
So will you just be open in the summer? we need details.
My friend's mom does that in idaho falls, the mini bazaar, just open certain times of the year, they have done it for 20 something years. It could be great!!!!

Jenny said...

Nicole said...
