Some photos from the past few weeks. Sarah, my sister-in-law, and I have been working hard to put on a little vintage pop up shop. This past weekend, we had our first sale. Leading up to the sale, we tore out cabinetry from inside her garage, painted the interior all in white, hung rods for clothes hangers, dug up all of our thrifted, vintage clothes fit for sale, made price tags, flyers, signs, steam cleaned everything, took photos in the freezing cold, and created a facebook and etsy site. It was quite the production, but it was fun, and our first shop was very successful. We had probably 60 people stop by, and we made almost 70% of our overhead. We plan to open again on March 14 from 9 to 3, so if you’re in the area, please stop on by.
We named the shop Vivienne et Cecil, using Grandma Vivienne’s and Grandma Joanie’s middle name.
When I’m not working on the shop, I’m snuggling with the girls and traipsing all over this city, finding little adventures. On Friday, I have my Human Anatomy and Physiology course, and this week is my first exam. Combined with church, running, and A Simple Year course, my life is decidedly a little less simple and a little more busy, which means that I’m failing February’s mission of owning my busyness and prioritizing few, rather than many. Oh well, it could be worse, and I am having fun. One of these days I’ll give ya’ll an update on my minimalism adventures in the past four months.
