Independents’ Day

Monday, July 4th, 2011

I have lost count of how many times I have been asked “why don’t you have a brick and mortar shop?“. My answer is one and very simple, I don’t have the money. I would love to have a shop full of colourful fabrics with a great range of haberdashery items and many notions and things in pretty jars and boxes.

The dream is still there and in the meantime I am working towards it. I know that just like me there are lots of independent retailers that are doing the same, and there are many other that their dream has come true but the reality is though because we have to compete with the big corporations.

Big chains are not evil, I buy from them too. But I think there is still room for indie retailers and is only us that can make it possible.

So for today, I will invite you to at least buy one thing from an independent retailer and make today a very happy Independents’ Day.

Enjoy shopping :)
