I love the start of a new month.
Anything seems possible. It’s a fresh start, to reach ambitious targets and meet new customers and welcome back lovely regulars.
It’s always exciting and especially now that I have stock arriving each and every month.
While I take a moment to stop typing and find some wood to touch, I’m thinking that my lovely suppliers are finally getting into the groove … my groove, as to how I’d like my shoes delivered. That is, basically when I want them to be delivered! 😊
This week, I’ve had new arrivals from Naturalizer (twice!), Rollie and a delivery of Django & Juliette shoes is due today. They’re all scheduled for arrival this month and it’s fantastic that they have, indeed, arrived … and early in the month, too.
There have been mountains of towering cartons lining the hallways at the back of the shop and quite a bit of squealing with delight as I unpack gorgeous shoe after gorgeous shoe.
Another big milestone for February is that I’ll be offering Afterpay soon!
I started having more and more requests from customers and so I’ve made the leap (I wanted to make sure it would be economically viable) and soon I’ll be able to offer this new payment platform to my online customers.
Because of the Point of Sale software that I use, and some compatibility issues, I won’t be able to offer it in-store for a little while, but they’re working on it.
So, I’ve already had a great start to February and looking forward to seeing what is ahead.
Until next time

Ps. Ahh, the irony. I had an unexpected delivery yesterday afternoon of shoes that were not due until March and April. Maybe not everyone is in the groove just yet…
