I think it's about time to post something that doesn't involve a picture of my preggo belly! In one of my last posts I mentioned that I'm creating a business. 'Tis true.
For several years now I've had a thought in the back of my mind that I wanted to start a resale shop. Mostly those thoughts revolved around kids clothes, toys, books and such. Well, then one morning I woke up at like 3 am and could NOT get back to sleep. My mind was just going like crazy about a curriculum shop.
Here I am a home school mama. A mama who's noticed that if you want to buy or sell curriculum almost all of the transactions are done online.
I'm also the kind that wants to look through books, to be able to touch and feel them...browse a bit before knowing if it's something I'd want to buy. I believe that I'm not alone on this one. :)
So, I've decided that I'm going to open a used curriculum store (and possibly a kids clothing section). To start off with it's going to exist in the basement of our house, with the goal of having a building to move to in late spring of next year.
I've put a lot of prayer into this and I believe that this is the way I'm being led, or at least something I'm being given permission to pursue. It's something that my kids and I can do together and eventually they will be old enough to take it over completely (if they are interested). Also, it's something that my husband is very on board with.
It's been pretty amazing how much progress has happened in just the last couple of months towards this! I'm hosting a party for the ladies from our church next Friday to talk with them about this new venture, get the word out and hopefully some of them will have some helpful feedback for me.
How about you? What do you think?
