Im starting a new series where I introduce you to some of the amazing, talented customers of Gift Shop Brooklyn.
Meet Angela. She was my first next neighbor, my first friend (ever!), and the very first customer of gift shop brooklyn! I’ll never forget the feeling that Saturday morning when I woke up to my first sale. She was so casual about it, she said ‘I’ve been looking for a bag that is neutral but different’ (it was pink tie dye). I love this picture of Angela; we used to make up dances all day long in our sequin costumes. Now making up dances is what she does for a living!
To get you in the mood…

It has been such an interesting year. It was Gift Shop Brooklyn’s most successful year (because you guys are SO awesome!! Thank you!!) but the success lead to burn out, and instead of hiring help or figuring out how to fix it, I closed my shop for the majority of the summer. It was almost definitely a mistake; but a mistake I have learned from. Even though I feel like I am still recovering from burnout, I am planning new things for 2015! Taking steps to avoid making the same mistakes, and to keep Gift Shop Brooklyn exciting for you and me! Thank you so much for being along for the ride, and for your constant support of American Made!! Here’s to a fantastic 2015! (and please feel free to let me know if there’s any items you would like to see offered this year!). xo
Here is a really great article on burnout I came across, Im sure I’m not the only one who can relate.
