I have said it before...
It is important to me to buy local and from people like me.
I want to buy from someone who struggles to fit everything into their day because they love what they do.
I want to buy from someone who has a passion and specialty.
This is important when I shop for my business.
I am a full time teacher. During the school year, I do the best I can to keep up with Whimsical Perspective but school it my top priority. I think I am doing pretty well at managing both but I have to know when I need help.
I need help. :)
During the school year, I simply can't find or make everything I need to supply my space at Carter's Cottage, Na-Da, and the Flea Market. I don't have the time. I tried to get as much done as I could this summer but I will never be completely prepared.
I sat down and thought about how I could figure this out. Ordering from a catalog was out of the question. So I thought about the things I love.
Then I remembered a gift I had gotten for my birthday last year.
The warmest and cutest mittens I had ever owned. The gift giver informed me that she bought them from a neighbor. I didn't think much about it but I wore those mittens EVERYDAY last winter. They are perfect!
So I took a shot in the dark and called the maker of the mittens. I told her what I do and my dilemma. I asked her if she would consider making a bunch of mittens just for me.
She agreed and now I am in business! I am so excited to be bringing these mittens to The Na-Da farms event and to Carter's Cottage.
First, I need to decide which pair I am going to keep. :)
