For some reason this post should have been published three days ago but it is still sitting here so you might get this one twice and you shall get two very close together..oh well....
OK so that is a very long title and the two don't really have anything to do with each other really, so I shall explain.... For those of you who questioned our sanity at taking on another bricks and mortar, actually wood and shingle shop, I hate to tell you you were right! Well sort of kind of, we are actually giving up the physical shop of Lilly and Billy which was our vintage kids shop as we are finding it too hard to run up and down the stairs a hundred times a day, well actually it is only me that has a problem with that, Laura manages quite well in her heels!
Not wanting to be away from Lilly Cottage we found we were spreading ourselves a little too thin and nothing creative was forth coming...we are too tired. Sooo...we are moving our new extended kids range back into and outside of Lilly Cottage and boy is that a big job! It is good however as we are clearing up and sorting out as we go and getting rid of lots of bits and pieces.
As all our wonderful things won't fit back in Lilly Cottage we will be selling lots of goodies, vintage and handmade in our eBay shop Lilly Cottage Old Petrie Town or our new seller name lillyhootandhoney which will also be our store name when we have 10 feedbacks.
These are some of the pictures from Lilly and Billy and these are all the sort of the things we will have on eBay and etsy (lindalillycottage) which is very exciting and doesn't have any stairs..or a leaking roof.
So what has the good ship Lollishop got to do with all this? Well not a lot directly accept we will have more time to be creative and then sell our wares on the brand new web site that is a Frou Frou friendly marketplace. See the cute little button on the side bar and click on it to be taken there and find out all about it. Basically it is a web site for a group of artists to display and promote their artful creations in a place that is full of pretty without the huge fees and with a whole heap of like minded people! Woohoo! so excited as I have applied and been accepted to sell on this website which plans to open and be fully operational by the end of the year, so lots of creating to do and lots of shopping with other sellers I feel!!!
I have a lot of new 'fairy tale' ideas running around in my head at the moment, i just have to find my work table as we had a re-arrange of furniture at Lilly Cottage and I did some swaps from my 'studio' and once I find where I put everything it will be great. Today is such a cold and blustery day though that is a chocolate and coffee kind of day with a good magazine so I think I will start tidying again tomorrow.
Have a wonderful day TTFN KN Linda Lilly Cottage.
