My aim is to expand my business from online retail to a shop unit within the next 4 months. allowing my business to grow.

by Harriet Cooke in Armagh, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

I completed a degree in Fashion design in 2008. Since then I have worked in the retail setting 1 day a week. I always toyed with the idea of having my own shop but never really had the guts to quit a full time job with good benefits to do so. 

Whilst on maternity leave I started to think about starting my own little online business to help and top up my maternity pay. This involved sourcing beautiful items of jewellery which i photographed and sold on instagram and facebook. 

This little venture has began to grow and I started to wonder would i be able to quit my full time job and continue doing wht I love full time. 

This means expanding my business and stocking more of what i currently stock and also expanding into womenswear fashion. 

The money raised (hopefully) through crowdfunding will help me to bring an empty retail unit to life, by buying flooring, paint, a shop sign and clothing racks and other items of furniture that may be required to finish off the look of the shop. This is before I start looking at paying for stock to sell, at the moment this is a work in progress. 

I hope over the next 4 months to make a big dream into a reality and hope that taking the risk will be worthwhile.
