One year older & wiser.

My favorite sign of Ridgewood Shop’s signs (that I’ve seen so far!)

1 June 2016 was my first day of business ownership. The past year has been a whirl-wind. I still wonder what exactly it is I have gotten myself into, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

It has been a year of learning, meeting new people and growing for the better.

One of the things this last year has taught me is that you have to know when to ask for help. No one person can do everything. Especially not all the time. Eventually you will hit a wall and not be able to do a single thing. Luckily for me, I have an amazing family and group of friends. I wouldn’t have made it through the last year if it wasn’t for them.

Best of all they encourage me to try new things (more about that to come)!

I want to say THANK YOU to all of the amazing people that have helped over the last year. Everyone from the wanderers that come in for a quick look before a movie to some of my/the store’s most loyal customers to Kevin (my super-amazing mailman) to Sharon (who still answers all my various questions a year later) to my close friends and family. Especially to Sarah, Aunt Christy & Daddy for being willing to step in when I have to step out. All of y’all have kept me sane.

It really does take a village.

Time Flies!

I honestly have no idea how it has already been 8 months. That is 2/3 of a year!

This has been an amazing journey. I am looking forward to the future and working to adapt both the store and myself to what it holds.

One thing coming together is making Reinvented Vintage a more community oriented space! We are starting to offer a new style of class, what I am calling “Make-And-Take.” These are classes that bring together local artists and community members. The artists lead a class in a afternoon (or morning!) of fun, laughter and learning.

March 4th 2-4pm with Audrey of Ridgewood Shop!

Besides bringing in guest artists, I am also working towards having a majority AR Made products (the non-vintage kind that is!).

Some as far away as Fayetteville, with a lot closer to home! Some of our AR made:

Come see me (and all of these great products) at the shop Tues-Sat 11-6! ;D

Hope to see you soon!
