    Sourcing Your Inventory from Local Creators

    Sourcing Your Inventory from Local Creators

    I get asked all the time, where do you get all of the stuff for your store? Most of it we create by repurposing, some of it is from local creators and there are a few things that are wholesale. My favorite though is partnering with local creators and offering them a place to sell their products. Listen this week as Emily talks about the amazing benefits of supporting other creators and how it keeps her store filled with unique handcrafted items.

    Will Your Passion Always Sell?

    Will Your Passion Always Sell?

    Nope. Your passion will not always sell. Just being real with you. That is why it is so important to find a balance between what you love to create and what your customer loves to buy. It is not always black and white and will change over time. While it is important to cater to your customers, never compromise who you are. It is easy to question your decisions when a customer comes in and says, “Well I wish you had more farmhouse.” Maybe farmhouse isn’t your style, don’t change your entire store or booth because of that one customer. Find the balance. Check out this week's episode where Emily talks about the balance between your passion and your customers' willingness to buy that passion.

    Is It Time to Pivot Your Business?

    Is It Time to Pivot Your Business?

    Emily is so excited to be joined by Rachel and Hilary again this week to talk about how they pivoted their podcast. There are so many factors involved and change is scary. Rachel and Hilary prayed and really thought through this transition and kept the big picture at the center. Staying true to yourself can be hard in business especially when there is always an opinion or doubt lurking around the corner.

Best Ever

I love listening to this podcast during my morning walks! Every episode is very informative and fun. I really appreciate the way Emily explains the business perspective and lessons learned behind the creativity. These are lessons that anyone could benefit from even if you aren’t in the furniture industry.
