Moving premises is like moving house.
You get excited, nervous, cold feet, it's going to be great ! Oh my God, what I am doing? And than it's done, and nothing has changed. You find the things you are use to and it all fall into place.
I felt a bit, rather a lot, like that when I decided that the store and my designs should be under my watchful eyes and be in the same studio as me. For some reason, it was exciting and than very scary as if I haven't done this before (only 25 years).
This week after my trip to overseas and back , fitting in a 40th anniversary with 3 days off, I am back in control. I got up for my first appointment with brides and it was like old times - the make-up went on, coffee and downstairs to find beautiful, fresh very receptive young ladies waiting for me!
I don't know what I was expecting! These are the same young, fabulous people that have made my life a designing life with excitement - friendships, late nights, award days and night.
I ran around frantic for about one hour, going to everyone , "I won't be long nearly finished". No one seemed disturbed except me!
Thinking back today, Monday morning after the week-end, these cool and collected young ladies made me feel like I could laugh and cry when it was over. i
If anyone thought that things had changed, it was ME. The brides had the same attitude and mission - to find a dress of their dreams.
"We know you Pina", that seemed to come up in all conversation.
I have made a decision though, I want to be in a consultation for two hours. One hour seems to be long enough to get to know each other, but the magic begins after that.
So girls, now that the other brides have seen the worse and thought nothing of it, please make two hour appointments, and we are on our way.
The month of June is also stock time, and I will be running a limited stock take sale, of course by appointment . If it's in stock, it's for sale. That includes new gowns etc. So first in, best deal.
make a time by email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and pick up a cash and carry price (Mind you cash means , cards, bank transfer etc). The deals are going to be amazing and you will be involved in pricing the gowns!
Thank you Saturday girls for giving me such comfort in my own home!
I love you, I had a great day.
