We opened the store on October 12th, 2014. Three months after taking over the space, and five months after moving to Amarillo. The night before opening, my family stayed late to help me finish steaming, finger spacing, tagging, and cleaning. I would be lying if I said opening your own business and actually running it is a one person show. It’s not. It does take a village (and if you are in that village, you already know how thankful I am for you). Hitting a two year milestone at the store is such a joy for me. Believe me, there are moments when you don’t think you’re going to make it, and moments when you think you could open 5 more stores. These two years have been a roller coaster, but I wouldn’t change a thing. One day I will post about the challenges of running a small business, and also the joys. That day will have to wait because right now it is time to celebrate.
Saturday we will be celebrating the stores birthday, and it will most definitely involve champagne and cupcakes. I hope you and your friends can make it in!
Thank you. Thank you to all of our great customers that shop at the store. It is because of your support that I get to do what I love to do. Thank you for trusting me to dress you. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. Thank you, thank you. I am so excited for everything that our next year to come has in store for us.
See you Saturday!
