At the start of these blogs, I said I would discuss several topics and be truthful on how it is, to run a small business. It’s not always easy but the majority of the time it’s extremely rewarding, especially when people send you pics of your products in their homes. I am far from being an experienced business woman, I have learnt as I’ve gone along. I don’t know everything, but I know what works for me, and I’m happy with that. We try and make the business unique to ourselves and I think that is what makes us grow. We can all wake up in the morning and think ‘I wonder what today will bring’, there’s so many ‘if’s and buts, and maybes’, but that’s ok. We work with what we have. We are happy to change things don’t work out just right, you can’t get things right all of the time. We are more than happy to support businesses that support us, but not work against us. We work with positivity, and others that like to be unique in their own right. Only recently, someone has been asking others about ‘my fees’, what I charge…… and saying “my customers have told me…..”, what extremely odd behaviour, I never discuss business with people as that wouldn’t be professional now would it. We are happy to chat with people, but not about how I run my business behind the scenes, they don’t need to know that and people certainly wouldn’t be asking me about ‘fees’, I’m a shop, not an agency, what an odd thing to be enquiring about! The obsession with my business and products, is unhealthy and not normal behaviour, why would someone try to replicate someone’s business 🤷♀️.
It’s been lovely to see our customers coming back to the shop, even welcoming new customers, you all look so well, I guess we was lucky with the weather during lockdown 😁.
So, we are looking at introducing online events where small businesses will be able to join us to sell items to go with a certain theme, more details to follow. ‘Fiver Friday’ is coming back within the next few weeks and ‘Giveaways’ will be introduced for all ‘Top Fans’ on our Facebook page (I don’t award people a ‘top fan’ badge, Facebook do that), so pop on over to the page, let’s chat 😁
