I originally started having flash sales on certain nights of the week, and it quickly grew to having trunk shows all around town. That’s when the thought of holiday shows started to be come intriguing. My mom and I went to a few and scoped them out, got a game plan together, applied, and the rest is history. With the shows came lots of stuff. I had to buy my own trailer. This was my first big girl purchase!! I had to buy lots of things almost as if I was opening a store, but a store that would be setting up and taking down a lot. Also, with the shows comes a whole lot of merchandise. Once I got married and had a house of my own, I now used my old bedroom at my parents’ as well as every extra corner of our house I could.
As my business continued to grow, our house continued to close in on us. About a year ago I had my inventory in the Shine Shop in Livingston. I absolutely loved my time there, and the customers seemed to like it as well. Once I found out we were expecting Madi Walker, I knew I had to once again expand my business. I originally thought I would just rent a building, and it would be more like a warehouse so to speak. But then I really got to thinking about the pop-up shop concept. I really put a lot of thought in to it before I announced anything about it, but it just felt right. I think so far people like the concept that basically each time we open we have just about all new things. This way with it being a small town, customers don’t see themselves all around town. Also, people are learning that when we are open if you see something you like, you better grab it because it more than likely will not be there the next time you stop in.
