The last three years have been awesome for this little business of mine. Still, every January as I look back on the previous year I try to think of things that I can do to improve upon it even more.
2011 was by far the best. I am still thrilled at the success of Junkin' Around the Christmas Tree. It was amazing! As soon as it was over, I started counting down to this year's event. I can't wait. November is far away, but I am already deep in the planning and creating.
Therefore, I have decided to focus all of my attention on my business at home, my etsy shop, and selling through local retailers. So, starting in 2012, I will not be vending at any junk/craft shows. I have withdrawn my registration for Junk Bonanza and will not be attending that or any other shows. This is not only due to the shift in my business focus, but also due to a much needed shift in my overall focus. My family needs to be number one! My boys are getting bigger and busier! In the past year, they have been involved in baseball, soccer, wrestling, basketball, church, etc, etc....the list goes on.
In addition, my etsy shop will be getting a much needed makeover and inventory boost. I will be working on this behind the scenes and plan to will rollout a new improved shop in early March. Look for it...I will be keeping you updated as well.
Finally, my next sale, Signs of Spring, will be held on Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24. Times will be announced later. I have been working on this since before Christmas and can't wait for this event!
Mark your calendars!
