Great news!

I am almost tempted not to write this post at all--I don't want any bad news to follow! LOL.

First, let me say that last week I made my first sale online!! It was to a woman in Ireland, so I even got to get a bit of experience shipping internationally. Admittedly, I may have made MAYBE $3 on the sale after costs and shipping, so I was able to adjust prices a bit to get everything in order. SO exciting!

Secondly, a friend of mine who I know through my day job (I am assistant manager at a discount store--SO glamorous ;) ) came into my job a few days ago and asked me how everything was going. I let her know about my business venture through Etsy and she was immediately interested. I gave her my Etsy shop address and she later contacted me, saying she knew the owner of a consignment shop on the main street close to my job. She let me know she would show the woman my shop address and see if she was interested in letting me consign some items in her shop. She liked what she saw apparently, so now I am waiting on an email from her letting me know when I will be able to meet up with her to discuss business.

Maybe this was a good decision on my part. Do I want to get rich from this? No. However, I would like to make enough where I know I can go on a vacation at least once per year and not have to worry about bills all while doing something I truly love. I didn't always have a love for makeup--it just kind of found me.

Here's to beautiful beginnings, folks. :)
