We had a huge week last week at the "Odd Vintage Wares" pop up market in Collingwood and also at the Vintage Shed.
It was lovely to meet some of our blog friends and catch up with some fellow stallholders. As you can see from the photos there was a lot of dedicated, talented stallholders there who spent a huge amount time making sure everything was fabulous- and it sure was. A huge thank- you to Kat for doing an amazing job at organising everything and supplying us all with endless amounts of Lollies!!
On a totally different note, we wanted to let our readers know that at this time we have decided to hang up our Vintage Girl hats.
We have had an amazing two years in partnership, chasing all over the countryside and the world even in pursuit of that perfect find. There has been lots of fun, laughter,wine, tears even....
My life is about to get a whole lot busier in a very different way as my family and I will soon welcome baby number 3, and although our partnership is coming to an end we will both always be Vintage Girls at heart.
I plan to keep blogging over at VINTAGE.HOME.LIFE about- well everything and anything really. Bec and I although not partners in business anymore will still share some space at the Vintage Shed and I will be still selling a small selection of vintage curio- when I can fit it in the busy schedule I have coming up very soon!
So that's about all from me for now, I will leave it to Bec to fill you in on her plans for the future. I will look back on this little blog as a great collection of memories from a wonderful time and friendship which I am sure will continue for a lifetime,
Dear Vintage Girl blog friends,
A quick note to add to Simone's words above, which pretty much sum up how I also feel. It has been wonderful having a partner in crime the past two years and we have had some amazing adventures together and watched our little business blossom. Unfortunately, things do change and with both my boys off at school now, I need to work full time hours and really try and make a decent go at this vintage caper.
Although I truly do love what I do, no doubt about that, money DOES make the world go around and whilst our partnership worked as a hobby while we both had little ones at home, I need to either take it to the next level or walk away and go back to 9-5 work...so I am giving myself 6 months to see what I can achieve, and I am pulling out all stops to ensure it works! (I really don't want to go back to REAL work)
I am extremeley grateful that Simone and I will still share some space at the shed and most importantly can remain friends. I am not sure what I would do if I couldn't text her at least twice a day about something. We have formed a true friendship and I do believe it will continue on regardless of our business endevours.
At this time I have decided not to blog. I am a facebook addict and have set up a page there for my business which will be updated daily. I will also be focussing a little more on my ebay store and online selling, as well as the stall space at The Vintage Shed. My new business is "Little Flea".
