Well, I think you’ve all heard enough about my, “what will bridget&lucy the biz be next” posts. I would link them here but I’m afraid to look at how many there actually are ;). Mom and I have closed the bridget&lucy store and our Etsy shop. I feel like whenever we wanted to sew or be creative we would think “we still have to figure out what we’re doing with our biz” and then that would stop us – or at least me. We both came to the conclusion that the bridget&lucy ride was AMAZING, but it was also OK if it didn’t continue.
Life is moving forward and there are adventures happening! Bill and I opened Lock it and Leave It Storage and it has been an experience! We have learned a TON and now work in the same office – so far so good ;). The biggest thing I have learned so far – if you are nice to people who want storage they will be blown away and be your best customers. Why are there so many crabby storage facility owners? Luckily for our customers – Bill and I are not crabby! (most of the time). Check your listings for Storage Wars Sioux Falls – I’m sure the network will be knocking on our door when they figure out I’ve unlocked the universal secret to being a good storage facility owner – being nice. Kidding – I’m pretty sure “being nice” doesn’t sell reality TV – but it should!
Next big adventure – I’m now a Matilda Jane Clothing trunk keeper (super cute and fancy word for – saleswoman! ;)). I have LOVED this brand forever and have dressed my children in their clothing for just as long. About a month after officially deciding to close bridget&lucy, the opportunity to join the company presented itself. Talk about divine timing – lucky me! If you love the clothes too and are dying to have a party – I know a girl ;). And to finalize – a gratuitous picture of my children in the clothing I’m now selling – shameless plug or passionate businesswoman move? You decide!
