For months I have been stressing out what about I'm going to do. While the life long dream of owning and operating a coffee shop still seems light years beyond my reach I think there is another goal that is within my reach.
I have joked a lot about how I could literally open up my own consignment shop with all the kid stuff we have and go through. Well.., I think its about time I stop joking and pursue this.
On a whim this morning I googled "opening a store" and found out some incredible news that I thought wasn't an option. Since I was planning on opening a small little shop I didn't think I could qualify for a loan but it turns out I can and do! I am super elated!!
Now I know the Hubs has heard me say all these things I want to pursue and has never really seen me do them - much thanks to the lack of time and dedication I can give it - so I was waiting for him to toss that towel in but he didn't. Phew!! Although I'm sure I'm not out of that hot water - maybe when the doors open he wont be tempted to say it.
But the kids are older and this time I am even more driven. So here is to pursuing the dream - consignment shop owner status - here I come!! I am gunning for you!!
Have you ever ventured into the consignment shop business? Any helpful pointers? Tips? Things to stay away from?
