But since she doesn't, and I don't, I am starting a new venture. When I first started making boutique baby clothes, it was honestly because I wanted my daughter to have those things, but I couldn't afford it! And, I still go out to boutiques and wonder WHO CAN?? But from all of my trial and error, and market research (only based on what sells and what doesn't) I have decided to continue doing the things that I love doing, but also try to branch out and head another direction.
This is an idea that I have been toying around with for quite sometime, but only in the last couple months have I become serious about it. I have decided to branch out into the world of tuxedo onesies.
I know, I know... you are thinking, but really, how exciting can black and white be? Well, I do believe that it can be very exciting, but I also believe that there is alot more to tuxedos than black and white... I mean, ask all of the people that got married in the 70's! And, as we all know... fashion history ALWAYS repeats itself! And when I first listed the tuxedo onesie a couple of years ago on Etsy, the only competition that I had was in the form of the appliqued ties, and the screen printed ones. Neither of which really tickled my fancy. But oh how times are a changin'!
I have toyed with the ideas of doing vests, or even those appliqued ties on onesies that YES, I have made fun of in the past, but since I sell on Etsy and I look around to see that those areas are pretty well covered. There are lots of sellers out there that have amazing shops. Check out Sara Sweet and Small and that is only one example. Some things are a little similar, but when it comes down to details, we are offering different products for the same occasions.
So, I have a shop name... and it's unoriginal. It's even kind of boring, but it tells ya what it is... and I will tell you what it is after my Etsy GRAND OPENING!! I am currently taking all of the chances that I get to list the 100+ items I plan on carrying, and in the meantime keeping up with this blog! And, this website... and... um... well, there is lots to keep up with. And if you know me personally, you should know how scatter brained I can be at times!
So, there ya go, that's what I got. That is what I have been working on lately. Hopefully I will be able to continue to keep going full steam ahead!
