It's been a long time coming, but I finally opened a bow shop! None of this would have been possible, of course, without my business partner, Becky. Ever since I found out I was having a girl I started making bows. Bows, bows, bows. For the last 2 years I have spent hours upon hours in our loft making bows for Clara, friends, family members. People would tell me I should sell them, and I would get soooooo close to doing so, then back out for some reason or another.
Fast forward to middle of November when my friend Becky invited our family over for dinner. Somehow the bow shop topic came up, and she told me she also had been planning on opening a bow shop before the holidays. We had literally been planning the same shop. Becky had done the parts I hadn't got to (ie: website, shop name, shipping, margins, etc.) and I had been working on what she hadn't done (ie: photography, making the bows, supplies, etc.). It was a partnership from my dreams!
We hustled and got our shop open on Cyber Monday. We have been open for 2 weeks as of today and it has been so fun. A lot of work, but so fun. It is such a rewarding feeling finally getting some of these designs and styles out after working on them for so long.
If you are needing some bows for your girls, head on over to www.modernpiggy.com. I've been blown away by the support we've received. I have the best family and friends!
