...which you could wear any season, love the scoop back.
I've been perusing big cartel while having my breakfast. There are heaps of great boutiques but it's not the easiest site to search. Any tips or tricks? I'd love to see big cartel do something similar to etsy, with a market place home page that changes regularly, I think it would be much more appealing as both a buyer and a seller. And then us bloggers could do 'big cartel favourites' posts too.
Oh if only I had my homeware store still. I would be perusing these fab internet markets every day, in search of beautiful handmade and vintage stock. Perhaps one day I'll open another one somewhere in the world. There are so many cute shops for lease in Amsterdam these days, no doubt because of the current economic climate. I often fancy myself setting up shop again in one of them. Although I adore shopping virtually, nothing beats a bricks & mortar shop, there is something so special about walking into one that just captures your imagination, like walking into a little world where you can buy and take home the things you fall in love with. I think now is the time you can negotiate a great lease deal and set up your dream shop. Some of my fondest memories are those of first setting up my shop - having very little capital and finding cheap second hand shelving, filling old indian cabinets with handmade treasures, lugging a ridiculously heavy old iron claw foot bath into the storefront and filling it with handmade soaps. So much fun.
