You heard correctly, I've started a new business. The Ikat Elephant Boutique held it's first sale this week, and I'm so excited for what's to come.
This is what I like to call my "fun" business. I decided to go this route after getting notice in February that one of the contracts I've had for the past 3 years would be no more. I've often purchased from Facebook auctions and decided I'd like to curate my own collection of goods and put them out there. Here are the top 3 reasons I like to shop this way:
1. It's incredibly easy, items show up in your newsfeed and you can decide it you want to buy. Comment with sold and PayPal invoice is sent to you, then item gets shipped to you. So easy, and fits perfectly into my busy life.
2. A chance to get my hands on unique "boutique" items that the national chains don't carry.
3. All these unique "boutique" items offered at a fair price, almost always lower than retail!
Right now, sales will be on Wednesday nights at 8 pm CST and I will be featuring an array of apparel, accessories and gift items. Many items will also be monogrammable.
The business is set up and I'm getting some great things in, but now I have to build up my fans. So, would you join me, please? Just head over to my Facebook page here and like the page (and share it with all of your friends). Then stay tuned for lots of great goods!
Oh, and I'd love to hear of things you'd like to see The Ikat Elephant feature, just leave a comment or tell me on the page :)
