I just wanted to pop in to say hello!
Honestly, this month has been so amazing.
|Amazing, I say!|
Married! I mean, how long does it take to sink in?
And then, yesterday happened, and I think, can one person really be this lucky? (But really?)
Last night, my biz partner and I met with a vintage shop owner (who I love and adore and have collaborated with in the past) in Minneapolis. She knows that my dream is to one day open a shop - she has been a huge support to me and very "rah! rah! you can do it - I believe in you" about it all.
It turns out that her store is expanding (doubling, actually) and she saved a place in her store for Tandem Vintage. I felt so honored and surprised and grateful when I heard this.
We are going to rent 1/2 of her old shop (connected to the new shop) and be open when she is open - two weekends a month.
This is it. I get a space - I get a key - and I get a place to hang my hat(s).
We were walking through the space last night and I just burst out crying because I was so happy.
My guts are just screaming: this is right. I have no doubts. No apprehension. No fear. I am excited, happy, inspired, and so motivated to begin this new adventure.
Best part is, we get to keep our brand and we get to decide what we want the space to look like. It's a blank slate! I am already daydreaming about new racks, displays, and a sign...And I get to clear out our little one-bedroom - we will have breathing room! :)
I just wanted to share my good news with you, friends. It's happening!
Wishing you all an amazing weekend - cuddle up and enjoy this amazing fall! Love to you....
