Well, I suppose I will start with the bad news since that is what I received first.
O.A.K, the shop on Newbury Street that wanted to offer my booties, hit a set back. The owner of the shop site, canceled the lease. Apparently, it was not finalized and he decided to do something different with the location. She is completely bummed and is looking for a new location but now expects the opening to be delayed until spring.
On the happy side, earlier in the week I found this on-line shop called Wadee. It is an amazing little site with some fabulous gift buckets all filled with hand-made goodies. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I read the about Wadee page and the big news page. I came to find she and I had a ton in common. We share a name, home town, and profession. Both started on-line businesses selling hand-made baby and toddler items. I emailed Kristina the of Wadee asking her if she might be interested in offering a few of my booties on her site. I wasn't all that surprised when I hadn't heard form her for a few days and decided I may not hear from her at all.
Well, to my surprise she called me this morning. Long story short, I am meeting her next week and she is buying 10 pair of booties to start and putting them in her gift buckets :)
I am also thrilled to get to talk to her and hear her ideas and advice on this business.
So even though today was a bit disappointing it also had a positive spin. These buckets are fantastic. I am so thrilled to have my booties offered in them :)
