We're Halfway There

First of all, I've been down for two days with a staph infection - again! The doctor has no idea why I'm getting them or how we can prevent it. The good news is, I don't have to feel bad for missing work and can still get things accomplished propped up in my bed while I rest. One of the perks of having your own business.

When Mom and I started this venture, my mother was determined that we would start out with a 100 item inventory on Etsy. After the first day of photographing and listing, she saw that this would be no easy task! It's time consuming. We do a ton of research on every piece. I photograph and upload and publish. I told her I though we would be doing good if we could get 10 new things a week added and aim to get to 100.

Today I added item number 52:

So friends, this puts us halfway to the 100 goal. I'm feeling pretty happy right now. We opened our Wonderland and Company Etsy Shop shop on September 7. So we are less than a month in. We have had 8 shop sales so far - one being on the first day we were open. We are very content with this for right now. Because our furniture is selling locally too! And, we are offering our services as vintage item locator's and have had success with this already as well! 

Folks, life is good right now. 

This weekend I'm looking forward to starting on re-purposing and re-finishing some of our larger furniture. I can't wait to share before and after pictures with you. And we are having a girls trip to Canton Trade Days. That's always something to look forward to. 

So, we're halfway there to one of our goals. We still have a lot more to accomplish, but we're feeling really blessed with where we are at! 

If you want to see more of our inventory, stop by and browse at the shop or head on over to the Facebook Page and 'like us.' We would love to have you.
