Dreams come true! 
I cannot believe it is 2 months since I wrote the first edition of this blog. So much has happened and everything is moving at 1000 mph! We went ‘live’ on June 13th and e-mails were sent around the world to all our friends to get them to peek at the site. Peak it did too with nearly 4000 pages viewed, that is a record to date! 
Just prior to going live I made a couple of journeys down to London to some haunts around Camden, Whitechapel and Notting Hill. I wanted to cruise the markets for a little bit of sanity and check the pricing…don’t want to get that wrong! I now have reassurance that my pricing is right. Still couldn’t resist a couple of bargains…who can? The trip may have been one of reconnaissance, but might as well grab some booty while you can!!

Writing all the product descriptions was tough, but I wanted accuracy, as I don’t want anything to be misrepresented. Niece, Alicia, was an angel…always on hand to assist. If you are reading this then you know where we are and I hope you like what you see….as it’s turned out I am reasonably satisfied.

Following the launch of the site, we had a viewing of the collection at a local venue. This was a successful sortie into an unknown arena of marketing…many local residents attending, passing on their thoughts and grabbing the odd item or two!! 
Now that it is all done I must now hold my breath for a few months and see how it begins to pan out…hate this bit, I want to buy, buy, buy! Time for the marketing people to do their bit…don’t worry though I am the boss and I will sneak out and stick some new stuff on when they are not looking!!! 
Just noticed it is Independence Day or was that a film….anyway we had a hit from Pennsylvania today…nice to know what ours sisters across the waters do on their day off!! Nothing changes!
