2 years and I am still here…

may 15, 2011 – marked the two years for my company… I have made many new friends along the way as well as re-connected with some old ones too. thx to facebook…My business has grown onto a new locatin on the web – vandm.com plus, I have expanded into vintage markets in chicago…Just this weekend I was at the popular randolph street market. I had some amazing neighbors and met some interesting people…did I mention it was in chicago? well, being born and raised here – I should have listened to the little voice inside of me that said – “go with the inside booth – everyone no matter what has to go to the bathroom” of course being the virgin at this sort of show, I took the suggestion of someone else and went with an outdoor booth…I was told more foot traffic. did I mention it was in chicago? so, go to the location, set up, chat with the neighbors and ready to sell…what happens – it rains…it rains for the majority of the show – 3 sales. okay, there is another day…well, we have les then a hour of selling time, since we had to breakdown, due to hazardous weather conditions. So, for a virgin – I was pretty experienced in knowing what chicago could have instore for the outdoor vendors…

Lesson to be learned….listen to yourself. hard lesson to learn…it will not happen again.

  1. Tracy….don’t tell me you were at the Randolph Street Market in May….I was there too! I’m so bummed that I didn’t see you! It has been too long since I’ve had a laugh with you! Be well my friend and Happy vintage-ing!
