Vintage Shop Staying Open Online
What a crazy time we all find ourselves in at the moment. I understand that it is also a scary time, and none of us know how long this situation will last for. As a small business it would be very easy for me to give into to the anxiety and feeling of panic, but I feel now is the time to try and stay positive and active. With this in mind both my website vintage shop and my Etsy shop will remain open. Currently both UK and overseas postal services are still operational, it may just take a little longer to receive your parcel and none will be signed for. As long as I can still post out I will remain open.
Part of me wonders if decorative antiques and vintage home ware will be on anybody’s mind, but that said in the coming weeks it may be that you need some home comforts, nostalgic finds or interior and garden pieces to lift your spirits. As this is my full time business I know I need to continue to work in it.
Keep active and positive
One of the most important things is to try and keep active and positive and I will doing this by sorting through my collection of sourced antique and vintage pieces. Getting my pieces ready, photographed and uploaded for sale will keep me grounded during this time and hopefully give you some pieces that can bring you a bit of joy.
I will also be also spending a bit of time in the kitchen as I find baking helps me focus and cake is always a welcome boost. If you feel like baking take a look at my recipe section, where you will find a range of cakes and sweet treat bakes.
I will also be in the garden, fingers crossed the sun comes out, I love creating a garden with a rustic vintage vibe, so I will be spending time tidying and creating a relaxing space so I can get some fresh air and be physically active. If you need any inspiration on how to include vintage finds into your outdoor space take a look at My Rustic Garden blog post.
All the events I was due to sell at have been cancelled or postponed. Hopefully those later in the year will be able to go ahead. You can check the status of events by linking to my events page.
The most important thing is to wish everyone well, help each other were we can, keep positive and keep safe.
