Saturday and a shop day, my 3rd to last shift at The Courtyard Studio. But also the first day that I had the keys to my new shop, so today Anne and I started the the transfer of materials, stock etc.
So the first aspect was to add some marketing and advertising in the window. I have closed the vertical blinds so any development inside will not be seen until Wednesday September 1st and opening at 10 am. I must admit I am glad that I have got the keys earlier so I can start the set up earlier than as possible when The Courtyard Studio started in 2nd November 2019.
The two photos above show how much my awareness of marketing has moved on from 2019. I have been a shopkeeper since November 2019 and as I commented in yesterday’s post I have learnt a great deal.
I am very lucky that Anne was helping today and wanted something to do. She redid the stock updating for my reserve prints and cards. I bought these new boxes from ‘Burts Bits’ and now my card stock are stored away.
The shop has started to take some form of order….more on Monday …<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-6190-651500620e36e' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=6190&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-6190-651500620e36e' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-6190-651500620e36e' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
