It has been too long, I need to find time to write about the experience, and take notes, as I so easily forget things.
fictitious name, new accounts, revisions on the website, facebook, twitter and pinterest, new car stickers by real graphic, visiting and getting to know other local businesses, joining meet ups and mixers, as well as getting familiar with what thrift stores, local Facebook groups and Craigslist’s ads have to offer, and keeping up the re-styling or up-cycling of old furnishings, learning new techniques such as free motion and mosaics, and improving the appearance of the workspace, while searching for retail space and parters to share the space with.
And despite a few setbacks
like getting the signage up (it’s up now) on time, it’s been doing pretty good, as those who do waltz into the space discover something different, exciting and fun, so they come back to check out any new artisans.
I have still to get any new design clients, other than a few free consultations (part of marketing strategy offer), but in all I must say I’m loving it here, it has been a great find, friendly people, I have a garden bed and hanging tomatoes for the first time in my life, and I get to visit with my son who lives in Truckee at least twice a month; so stoked.
