Return to the Kiosk - Day One

November 1, 2011 - Set up the kiosk last night with the help of my dear friend Melissa (thank you ♥) and opened up today.  I have SO much inventory this time that it was really a challenge to make it presentable without looking junky.  First thing this morning I spent a couple of hours arranging and re-arranging my products.  I think it looks pretty good.

Oh, I should mention that I interviewed a potential new part-time employee during that time too.  Just another one of the many hats I wear as a sole proprietor.  By noon I was pleased with the display and was officially ready for business.

It didn't take long for me to get back into my concierge-annex role (a self-appointed title).  An hour after the mall opened, I had already given directions to 3 shoppers.  For some reason people always stop by my kiosk to ask questions.  This was also a common occurrence while I was there back in the Summer.  Anyway, thank goodness I had my trusty mall directory handy.  In the 2 months since I've been gone, I've forgotten where many of the stores are myself.  I'm sure it won't take long to get back up to speed though.  The shoppers will see to that. 

Later that day...  my first sale of the day was an Eye Glam © eyeglass case that I crafted from African Print fabric covered with beautiful masks.  It sparked a conversation between the purchaser and myself about our respective trips to Africa.  It was a pleasure talking with her, and it reminded me that sometimes a perfect stranger can make your day.  It's good to be back. :-)

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities to increase awareness of the disease, and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.  The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Organization is celebrating 25 years of educating and empowering the public about the disease, and the global leader of the breast cancer movement, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, has invested more than $1.9 billion since its inception in 1982 in its efforts to end breast cancer.

Like all too many of us, I have had family members and friends diagnosed with the disease, and I pray that a cure will soon be found.  In support of this cause, SKCreations, LLC has created Lil' Somethin' Somethin' Bags and Clutch Wallets crafted from fabric designed with the Breast Cancer Awareness signature pink ribbon.  They are now available on our website.  A portion of the proceeds from sales of these items will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization.
