It's time for the next stage of Terra Vintage!
Hello. I'm super excited to bring you not one but two pieces of good news in today's blog! The first part is that I’m delighted to report that this has been my best year in business to date. It's been a fab summer in the shop, and you are supporting my business so much online. I love bringing you live shopping sales and engaging with you in real-time. It is so wonderful to be able to chat with customers all over the world, much further than where I am based.
The second piece of good news is that I am going to have lots more time to grow my business online as I am closing my pop-up shop in Portrush. Me and my first little shop have come to the end of the road. I have made this decision in order to focus on my online sales, which are growing and growing. I opened my shop as soon as I went full-time with Terra Vintage, so I’m super excited to see what I can achieve with such an abundance of hours! Of course, you will still be able to find me and my rails of gems at markets in real life because I still want to catch up with those of you locally in person.
It has been an amazing year of learning and growing, making new friends and of course, meeting lots of you in real life. I have found so much joy in welcoming you to my little shop, having the chats, watching you try on Terra Vintage and find items that make you feel fabulous. I am so proud of how far Terra Vintage has come.
The future is bright. I’m beyond excited to bring you even more online vintage collections and content as we all continue with the search for fabulous days in our lives. That’s what it is all about, isn’t it? Waking up every day, putting on something that makes you feel like your best self and ready to take on the day with confidence. For me, it is not only how epic the clothes are and how they fit you etc. So much of feeling fabulous comes from knowing that you are contributing to something positive too. That you are wearing something that would have otherwise ended up in landfill. That your purchase didn’t contribute to keeping the current fast fashion industry afloat. That your choices can make an impact and contribute to the change, you want to see and be in the world.
Of course, I also love to bring you content on the inner work towards fabulous days. I’m a big mindset girl, and without implementing certain practices like exercise, journaling, meditation, affirmations and nourishing my body with good food, the struggle as a business owner and a human would be real at times. I’m passionate about sharing how much these things have helped me so they can help you too.
One thing that has remained solid from the very beginning when I started my Instagram account for Terra Vintage almost three years ago is my self-belief. My belief in what I am building is unshakable. There have been many a breakdown when, believe me, it has been tested. But self-belief is always there at my core. That self-belief, hard work and your support are the reason I am here today, able to tell you I’m having my best year yet and taking my business fully online once again! My Vintage, my reworked vintage, and I will be here for you!
I LOVE what I do. I love curating vintage collections and creating content, and I cannot wait to have more time to bring you even more!!
My Pop-up Shop in one of my favourite places on earth, Portrush, will remain open until mid-September. So make sure you come and visit me in real life before we close!
Thank you so much for your continued love, support and encouragement.
Lots of love,
