The other day I was feeling a little depressed .
and posted on face book that I was going to “give up”.
Why was I feeling this way ?
Well… I had been approached
by several Bricks and Mortar / on-line shops to stock my babies.
The latest being from a Swedish Retailer.
Big excitement !
But after much pondering re wholesale it ended up my pieces
would be to expensive at Retail , as my margin would be my time
and between you and me I don’t always charge for all of it.
Another cost to factor in was the
postal /shipping /courier costs totally outrageous!
Similar rugs over seas could be made and brought into Australia
cheaper than I could make and send out of Australia ..
didn’t realize how many people actually read my Face book posts
and was taken aback by all the words of encouragement.
So I took time out to think ..
I thunk and thunk till the bell rang and then I thought…
I’m not a registered business
I’m not doing it to make a fortune (ain’t that the truth!)
and last but not least
the reason for doing it in the first place … Joy!
( who knows I may just consider stepping outside my square
and push the boundaries a bit further in the new year.)
But until then …..
