As I am writing this, Aaliyah’s “Try Again” lyrics are playing through my head:
It’s been a long time
We shouldn’t have left you
Without a dope beat to step to…
Well, it’s Timbaland rapping, but you get the picture. I’ve neglected this blog. I feel pretty rotten about it, but things got busy, crazy, and now slow. I can refocus again. Let’s see, I need to catch you up!
1. Rare Bird Boutique is no longer featured in Cherry Tree Creative or Little Liberty’s in downtown Taylor, Texas. Just wrapped things up there this Spring.
2.Instagram sales picked up on my other account at @rarebirdforsale for a while, but eerily, they are slow now.
3. I hosted my 2nd Vintage Market at my home in April. Bad idea to host the day before a holiday, but nonetheless, it was fun! My friend Kristin of After While Crocodile Vintage vended with me again and we also had a mini garage sale.
4. I took everything off Etsy at the beginning of the year and now I am slowly adding items back on. Free shipping in June, folks!
5. Did I mention that I went back to work last September as well? No more sabbatical. I am back to my marketing gig, part-time for a former employer.
So as you can see, things are slow and in a rebuilding process. I had branched out in so many ways with Rare Bird Boutique, that the blog had suffered. In these times, I can come back, regroup and write when inspired. Times like these make you reflect and wonder why things are slow. It could be that I need to reconnect with an audience again therefore, it’s “Back to the Basics”.
Hope you’ll stick around to enjoy the blog and more! I look forward to this down time to reintroduce myself, the blog, my shop and lifestyle to the reader.
Don’t forget! I am hosting a $10 Rare Bird Boutique Shop Credit Giveaway until 6/24. Details in this post.
