A quick post

OMG I turned 30!

It was a pretty spectacular event. But I don't want to get into that right now. I just wanted to update on my progress with the shop.

As you may (or may not) know I work in retail management. My job is surprisingly very demanding, and I pretty much put in about 45-50 hours a week. On top of that, I try to stay up and get this Etsy thing a-going. Basically, I work very hard all the time and I am pretty tired very often.

I'm currently working on re-pricing some things in my shop and working out on some financial spreadsheets to get everything tidied up.

I'm also trying to get partnered with Jeremy to get some new pics taken and that is almost impossible because both our schedules are pretty inconvenient and when we do find time together, we spend it watching episodes of Soprano's and just relaxing from working all day. BAD BUSINESS PARTNERS!

SO, as I always do, I made a list of things I need to do/improve on.

Blogs - I need to update more often and start reading other people's blog as well. I have a blog loving account and I need to use it

Twitter - need to connect with more vintage shoppers and other vintage sellers and build a community. Help out others, while helping myself. I am a very generous person and unfortunately not very competitive. I like to help!

Revamp product descriptions for older products - I made a template for my research and my product descriptions that I used for my new products that I need to use for my older ones. Update descriptions.

Take new pics - I was very happy with my new round of pics and very so-so about the first round. I want to redo some shots

Finish up etsy shop spreadsheet -done!

New pricing - I wanted to make things a little more affordable for my customer base and less for my own pocket. Again, there is my nice-ness talking

Make a new avatar - the one I have for the shop was really thrown up there last minute.

TREASURIES- I enjoy making them and I need to do them more often

Advertising and marketing - as a former marketing major, I really should put to use the very few things I learned. HA!

I am still so 100% behind this thing and I know I can make something of it. It is just the "having energy" part that is so damn difficult!

Well wish me luck!

Jeremy and I love animals. This is my room mates kitty cat, Quinn.
