Letting Go

Letting Go

Selling vintage and antiques is a business I had a difficult time stepping into because 1) the market is very competitive, and 2) the practice of letting go can be challenging.

Honestly, my inventory all along has been pieces I've collected over many years. It wasn't until I officially combined homes with my partner that I was forced to face the reality of this vintage shop I had been building (i.e. hoarding) for so long (and the seemingly bleak future ahead within my world of event production). I wrestled over names, purpose, and personality for my business. It was all I was thinking about for months. I had analysis paralysis. After overcoming so many internal obstacles, I finally pulled myself together. It was time to let go. I have learned to allow the brand to become a vehicle for expression of my own personality, rather than searching for a rulebook on how others make it happen. Each piece becomes a muse. It's all a process of letting go, over and over and over again.
