I'm in the middle of getting my Fall 2008 line ready to launch and I'm once again getting the jitters. I'm greatful b/c as a small biz I have the ability to take my time (well kind of) to finalize designs...which is the most harrowing process to me. I go back and forth and change and hate and love until I produce something I want to see on shelves. This season will be all about subtle-bold (yep, made that up) colors for Hammocks & High Tea and unique prints. Thankfully it's time to expand, another thing I can do in increments...phew...so you will see more home goods, more paper goods, new drawer paper and scents, and a custom area for stationery (sneak peek above).
*MOB = my own business
** I read an interview with a store owner recently that put my thoughts about my goods into perspective. When asked if she would be carrying any new lines she said something like ' in order to be in my store the line has to be special and offer something unique, that's the only thing that will make a consumer spend right now".
Off to make something special...oh the pressure :)
