I do want to give a big thank you to the ladies that put together FYN. So much work, time and love goes into it, so thank you for letting me be apart of it this fall! In no way was my total lack of success because of the actually boutique! I just didn't have things that people wanted. Bummer.
At first I was saddened, but I'm trying to have a better attitude. I'm learning that trying to sell anything but a basic t-shirt to women in Yakima is kind of stupid. Yakima isn't Seattle and fashion choices are going to be quite different in a small town. It's either that or I have a terrible taste in clothing and I've been making hideous things. If that's the case, please...someone...tell me so I can stop!
I at least had to try and see if selling clothing at a home boutique would work for me. It failed in some areas and was a success in others. I'm at least glad I tried because now I can focus on selling things on Etsy. I'm learning that there is a strong learning curve in what I've been trying to do. I'm glad it's just a hobby and that I'll still love sewing even if nothing I ever make sells.
Some of you have asked when I'll post things on Etsy. Now that FYN is over I'll post things after Thanksgiving...hopefully sooner. Also, for any ladies that did attend FYN and weren't sure what the women's clothes looked like on, I thought I'd post a few grainy, iphone photos up. Sorry they are all silly self-portraits.
