What an extremely busy few weeks we have had. Well it’s been months but certainly the past 2 weeks have been crazy busy.
First was my rash decision to just let the world know of my intentions to open an online store on Instagram. I originally had intended to open the Martinis and Slippers online store early October, I needed my packaging printing done and was terribly let down and consequently delayed by 2 weeks, which just threw all my plans out the window. I was hoping to have a stall at a local market last week but yeah…those 2 weeks really stuffed me. I could have still done the market but with 2 days to prep…I’m crazy but not that crazy!!!!
So while the packaging was being printed I was working on a bunch of brooches, some of which were royally screwed up. I fixed them/still fixing them but they just weren’t perfect enough for me to sell.
I was also putting together the artwork for new brooches and coming up with new concepts. Some ideas hit me at the strangest times. School pick up was one of those times and I all I had in my handbag to write on was an invoice & a pen that works when it wants to. That idea is awesome (and is still sitting in my handbag) and I hope to produce it someday soon.
Then the big one…THE MARTINIS AND SLIPPERS ONLINE STORE. We spent countless hours working on the photography for the brooches, coming up with names for each of the brooches, writing the blurbs for each brooch, working out the costs, researching postage, getting insurance and then we weren’t happy with the online store we had so we made some changes and finally here we are. What a huge difference it has made and I really hope that you love the brooches as much as I do.
So to celebrate the opening on my new Martinis and Slippers online store, we are offering 10% off all purchases until midnight Saturday 31st October (Melbourne, Australia time). To get the benefit of the discount please use the OCTOBERSALE code at the checkout.
At this stage my store is only open to Australia residents but we are working on opening it to all international purchases – stay tuned for news on this.
