And now I’m flying!
Two years ago I took a leap with my friend Kristie Herlong (now owner of Dorcey’s). We naively set up at the Springfield Antiques Show and Flea Market in July, a traditionally slow month. Kristie and I had NO idea what we were doing, but embraced the adventure and figured it out. We were thrilled with our sales and decided to launched Flown The Coop. I had no idea that a little experiment with junking would turn into a passion and sustainable business venture. Making it up along the way and carving out our individual niches, Kristie and I have both “built our wings.”
These little wings have flown some distance since then.
Last month I shared a space at the Dallas Market Center, Vintage Home section with my good friends and mentors Brian and Meloney Russell of the Seed Box Designs. Needless to say, I am in awe of where Flown The Coop has taken me.
It helps to have talented friends in the business! Congrats to The Seed Box Designs for winning Best of Vintage Home!!!
A flight home
This month I will return to the Springfield Antique Show and Flea Market. Two years ago I would have never guessed that I would travel such a distance to shop the flea. I am still excited about the journey and the unpredictable flight pattern. I’m so glad that I took the leap, Flew the Coop and continue to build my wings!
If you have a dream, take the leap! You’ll figure out how to build your wings on the way down! If you are a leaper, what is your experience? I’m sure there are kindred spirits who could benefit from sharing your experiences.
