First day...

Today was the opening day of my shop! I still don't have a lot of stock as most of it is arriving during the coming week, even so i think it looks ok so far!

Yesterday, with the help of my amazing mum, dad and boyfriend, i managed to get the shop fitted out and all fo the lighting in place. This morning I was up and out of the house at 7.30 as I had all of the stock to put out before Botany Bay opened at 10am - it has certainly been a hectic few days.

The day got off to a slow start but at 1pm I had a sudden flurry of customers - i could have jumped up and down!

I also had a visit from Sarah Whittle to deliver some of her embroidered lovelies.
Here are a few piccies of how it looks at the moment - hopefully it will be a lot fuller very soon!

On the top shelf are some beautiful earrings from Philippa at The Cats Whiskers...

I love these original canvases by Kim Onyskiw...

And these too (also by Kim Onyskiw )

I love my cake stand full of yummy gift bags....

These beautifulbag charms are from Ooops A Daisy

And these are some of the pin cushions from Sarah Whittle.
I am aiming to profile each of my suppliers on here over the next few weeks... i just need to get a little more orgsanised!
I need to go and sleep now as i have anotyher busy day ahead of me.
Finally i must thank everyone for all of the supporting messages - they have kept me going!
