Epiphany in the Bathtub…

Posted in business-a-go-go, Main at 12:03 am by carrie

Do you ever soak in a bath and then *bam* you get an idea that you think is brilliant… although, I’m not sure HOW brilliant this is, I’m just thinking out loud.

So, I need some input…

I miss my store & I miss my customers. Duh.

Why not have an open house/trunk sale/tea party one weekend in October, November or December in La Crescenta, CA? Or sooner? :)

I need a venue. I’ll need tons of help. I need more vendors and I need a pack mule to help me move merchandise from this coast to the other.

Just a thought.

Is it any good? :)

    Hey – the La Crescenta Woman’s Club is an inexpensive venue. They have a huge room (with stage), lots of folding tables, fireplace, kitchen, bathrooms and parking. And there’s also the Legion Hall across the street from the Woman’s Club. And of course you can always use my place. Just a thought…

    how about a trunk show in the fabulous town of Cary? theres a market for it, lots of new customers, and no need for a pack mule.

    just a thought. your own backyard is a great untapped resource!

    I’ll be your pack mule and your personal assistant “) Just let me know when it will be! Sounds like a lot of fun and a great way to re-connect with all those people in one fell swoop.

    Hey Carrie! It was great meeting you too last night! It’s so cool to think about how much alike we are, and then to radomly meet ~ or maybe not randomly! :-)

    I love your idea… I agree with Allison to have one in Cary. There are also shows here & there (one is at Cary Academy in December) that sells new things. I went to your web site – very cute things. Email me sometime, so we can chat!
