Yesterday I mentioned that I was in the process of setting up a secondhand store and a few people asked me for some clarification and details.

So instead of writing the same response out several times, I thought that I would detail it here.

One of my long term goals in life is to open a vintage and secondhand store.

My ultimate ideal would to be to have a brick and mortar store, but the real estate in this area is insanity, so to start it will be online only.

Last year my kids and I were joking around with store names and through that process I came up with the name I wanted to call it.

In a way of manifesting and to place hold it I bought the domain and made corresponding email addresses, and social media handles with it as well.

Over the last few months I have been planning it out further, collecting and organizing inventory, planning the website, and researching the logistics of worldwide shipping.

It is a process and I don’t have a lot of spare time right at this moment to dedicate to figuring it all out which is why it is taking me a while.

I might hire my teen as an employee to help because she is pretty techie, wants a job, and needs to build her resume. So that will be helpful.

My hope is to have things fall in place this summer.

Last week, a small sailboat in distress was rescued by a massive 18th-century sailing ship. “This moment was very strange, and we wondered if we were dreaming. Where were we? What time period was it?” That would be surreal.
