Hastypearl Goes RETAIL !!
Want to hear a fun story?
A kind of like…she got discovered by a MGM movie maker
sitting at a soda fountain kind of story?
Well, ok, maybe not that BIG of a story, but it was fun none the less.
I live outside of San Antonio, Texas,
the seventh largest city in America.
Surrounding it, are lots of wonderful small towns,
established on their own, early in the development of Texas.
We live near one called, Boerne.
Boerne is thriving, growing, and always shows up
on the top of best small towns to live in lists.
I recently stopped into a great newish store called,
to talk to them about the Amy Howard paints that they carry.
(Ill post about that soon…could be exciting!)
I met the owner, Beth Webster Wright.
Uhhh…did I say, vivacious, talented, gifted?
She’s a stick of dynamite!
She noticed one of my handmade Hastypearl Vintage Buttons Pins
that I was wearing and asked about it.
I told her that I made it and that I was a mixed media artist.
A match was made in heaven 😉
She said that she supported Boerne Artists and asked
if I would want to sell in her shop?
YES, I would !
Before I knew it, I was following her over to one of the most beautiful buffets
that she has for sale in her amazing showroom
and she said that I could set up there if I liked.
She left for a wonderful vacation the next day
and without discussing ANY NUTS AND BOLTS, Hastypearl was IN!
I came back the next Monday,
meeting Lisa, one of the VOM family and got my space set up.
I ran with it, pinching myself every few minutes.
Vintage On Main, is a sprawling building, full of lovely spaces,
filled by local women, all with a wonderful eye and entrepreneurial spirit…
and I can’t wait to meet them all!
I thought that you might like seeing what my
little space looked like when I got finished.
Its wonderful to be encouraged and so happily received.
Every time that I go to the shop,
I meet someone new and its been a delight.
I guess I like to stay OPEN to saying YES
to the opportunities that come my way.
Some times, I can be a little…Hasty that way,
but boy, has it ever lead to some Wonderful experiences!
So, now that you are updated on all things RETAIL,
I will let you know how things go along the way.
“Pinching oneself “can be a lots of fun, right?
Whether you are more of a planner
or go through life “jumping out of airplanes” style…
Life can really be grand!
Readers, thanks so much for stopping by…
