Today was incredible. Incredibly hectic! Woke up at 4.45am to volunteer for the MS Melbourne Cycle. That's my good karma for the year. That wasn't the highlight of my day though. Today was the official day of ressurection of Wolfendale Vintage! I got a stall at Cocoa Jacksons studios which is a really cool space! the building is beautiful. I didn't manage to take a photo of the sign at the front of the building, but it was written in the best 50s style font; big, chunky and wide serifs, all western style. To top it off it was painted in the beautiful copper paint.
Anways, I get to the warehouse and there was this beautiful giant timber box yelling at me to set up shop on him (ahah). My statement piece was the copper pipe clothes rack that Matt and I made the night before. We made a trip to Bunnings to see what we could find to make a functional display for my clothes. Things that I considered included: ladders, steel pipes, aluminum pipes, PVC pipes, wooden dowels.. etc etc. Procrastination had led me to not getting a clothes rack from a normal store before 6 in the evening; before everything shut. I guess it was a blessing in disguise but that copper piping cost me A SHIT LOAD OF MONEY :(. Oh well, I'll consider it as an investment.
I had a great time running my first store. It was a lot less sitting around doing nothing than I expected. People were friendly and talked to me, Sam came around and did like half of my sales. (Sam, I might need to hire you as my sales rep aha)
The last week has been super busy, but it doesn't end here! Not yet, I forsee another insane week ahead! Now... I better head to bed because I feel my body isn't too happy with me for that 4 hours of sleep in anticipation of a full day..
