My Small Claim to Fame

I was going through my bookshelf today and I came across the bridal magazine that I was actually published in a few years ago.  It was an article that talked about reconstructing a wedding.  I was quoted about what to do with your bridal gown after the wedding.  Which of course is appropriate, because after all I do have a bridal consignment shop. When I opened in 2009 I was the only bridal consignment shop in the area.  So in my own mind, I consider myself a pioneer for the bridal consignment business in WNY. I have always shopped at consignment stores, so I thought why not combine that with my wedding coordination business. I love saving money and while getting something awesome.  In my case small business really means small business. My daughter and occasionally my husband are the only “employees.  I never dreamed that I would have had or even be interested in having a business. It was great to look at that article again, and get that little thrill of pride seeing my business and name in an actual bridal magazine. I usually can remember how far I have come,(and let’s face it how far I have to go),but a tangible reminder is nice too.  So when I have those days that I wonder is this really going to work,  I will remember my small claim to fame. 🙂
