That’s right… we are finally back open after weeks of been closed due to covid 19. During that time i missed my shop so much and it gave me time to reminisce on the journey from opening until now and what a journey it’s been!
For as long as I can remember I wanted my own business. I spent years working in retail, but never ever felt fulfilled or truly happy working for somebody else’s company and eventually I would get bored, burn out and move on. Anybody who knows me well will know that I’m a bit of a daydreamer 🤭 I would spend hours trying to think of business idea. I would imagine myself running it, managing my own time and loving every second of it, only I didn’t know what IT was.
The curiosity shop was actually born quite off the cuff. It was definitely a “let’s give this a go and see what happens” moment. It’s been extremely hard work since that moment, but years of dreaming and grafting here we are today. I’ve finally found something that I’m passionate about. Something I thought would be a bit of a side hustle, has now turned into my full time job. At the start I had to quit workinv in the markets whicg i loved to keep up with demand.
I eat, sleep and breathe this business. I pour my heart and soul into it. I’m proud to say that I hand pick every single item with the most love and care possible; I am a perfectionist, and I hope this is reflected in my shop
I absolutely LOVE the curiosity shop but most of all i love all my customers! Because without them and the support they give through likes, comments, orders, feedback and just generally being the loveliest customers in the world, the curiosity shop wouldn’t be where it is today.
The year ahead is looking even more exciting than the last few and I’m absolutely buzzing for it 😃 Bring it on!
Thank you so much if you took the time to read this. I guess the moral of the story is to never give up on your dreams and to work at them until they become a reality.
Cheers to you 🥂🥰💖 xxx
