I have always hoped that I would be able to say those words one day and here I am – sooo happy!
Anyway, I thought it was about time to write something to introduce my little store to you all.
The website has been up and running since May 2018 and the bricks and mortar store has been open for business since 21 July. I only took possession of the shop on 9 July (it was originally meant to be 1 April – I think the joke was on me!) and there was a lot of work to do to get it ready for opening – huge thanks are owed to Mr She Walks in Beauty, the various take-aways in the area and some very special friends for helping me out both in the preparation and for running the shop for me when I haven’t been able to be there. It has been a huge and very steep learning curve for me as this is my first foray into running my own business, but I absolutely love it and wouldn’t change it for the world! Yes it is hard work, the hours are long, but its such a great feeling to be my own boss with the added bonus of being able to take the She Walks in Beauty pooch to work with me. The absolute best thing though is seeing how much our customers love our shoes and their positive reaction to the shop – it is wonderful and I am so grateful to you all.
I am fortunate and very proud to be the exclusive stockist in the area for some fabulous brands which are very high quality – I know you won’t be disappointed when you see them. Autumn/Winter stock is now arriving and we have some stunning styles that are already selling fast. I have various styles available, from casual flats through to our own-brand classic pointed toe court shoe.
I am planning a little official launch party on Thursday 13 September and would love to see you there for a glass or two of prosecco to help celebrate in this little corner of Leigh-on-Sea. Here’s a little peek of what is coming …
