Farewell October, Hello November

Farewell, October!

 

October was a whirlwind of a month. I felt like I was going, going, going all month long. Business wise, I had two pop ups. Hearts and Hearts Vintage was one of 5 vintage vendors  at Tako’s Treasures for 3 weeks and the second was a weekend  pop up at Red Velvet.

I was successful at both, but I’m taking a pop-up break. For November, I’ll be focusing on growing my brand, sourcing and organizing inventory and hopefully filling my shop up to the brim with new items!

 

I went to Nashville earlier in the month. Sadly, I didn’t do any exploring of the city. It was a one day shopping trip. Pin-Up Girl Clothing (PUG)  was hosting  a yard sale! PUG dresses usually retail for $100-$350, but at their infamous yard sales nothing is more than $60. Of course I made that 4 hour trip up the highway to shop, shop, shop! I’ve heard the legends of these yard sales and knew that it was going to be worth it. They hosted a contest to get early entry and as someone who HATES LINES I wanted it more than anything. The contest required reposting images once a day on either Facebook or Instagram. 3 people from each social media site would be given 10 minutes early entry to shop with a friend. I entered of both and I won…BOTH! None of my friends accompanied me on the trip so I asked two girls who are customers at the boutique I work at and they were thrilled. We all had great hauls and I’m sure my dresses will make a cameo on the blog some day soon.

The rest of the month was spent working and being way more social than I’m used to. Everyone and their mom was born in October so I had a few birthday parties and  dinners to attend. I had a good October, but my body was over it and I came down with the flu the last week of the month and missed all Halloween activities. I’m still not 100%, but I’m finally feeling better.

Somebody remind me to get a flu shot in September next year!

The Crybaby Club (shoutout to Memphis’ own Natalie, the creator)  is having a sale on their pins all week long. $5 for these awesome enamel pins. Including my favorite and most worn, the Memphis Heart enamel pin.

 

 

 

Not a sale, but Funlola’s Workshop (another Memphis shop) had a shop update with lots of new items added to her shop. My favorite are the succulent necklaces!  Have a visit to her shop and follow her on Instagram for behind the scene looks on how she creates her pieces. Each one is amazing and painstakingly detailed.
