An opportunity to take things another step further.
The first year running a retail business is a killer. The hours, the work behind the scenes, the uncertainty. the jugggling act with finances.
But the rewards totally outway the stresses. I'm very happy. I love my little shop. I love showcasing lovely designers and crafts people. Love it to bits!

Oh and I make things too. Because making is what it's all about when you think about it. I am continually inspired to create and everything that follows is just a BONUS!
