where to start? most of you have noticed or seen that i have moved from the alley cat to a new store location. i have been with julie at the alley cat vintage mercantile for a long time! years! i love her and her treasure of a store. multiple things led me to move and get my own place, being self employed and working from home has been great. i was able to have a retail booth space in town while doing photography, design, & print at home.
this worked for a little while but honestly it's been a little crazy. our house completely got taken over with product, an online store and my dining room table became an office. for someone who doesn't like mess or clutter it became a little much to handle.
i had a booth space in November at christmas magic and it was so great to have a client/customer interaction. i put a lot of thought and time into my designs and the process of printing all of my own stock. i am very attached to all of my work, it is apart of who i am and i wouldn't do it if i didn't love it. that goes with photography and design as well.
i now have a place sell my products with hopes of expanding by this summer, a place to meet my clients and i have a small wall for studio space. i won't be doing props. i will still be shooting outdoor and natural light photography but hopes of doing a very simple series of portraits.
this store space will hopefully simplify my life. before i was running around delivering orders all day and working extremely long hours at home. we are now adjusting to me being away from home again and having to work a store but i truly believe this was the best move for our family.
the girls will be with me on occasion and other days i will use the time at the store to get work done. thank you for those who have stopped in and said hello. i will be having a grand opening after the first of the year so stay tuned! i encourage you to get out and explore our downtown. it's a gem and there are some really great shops down here.
