a new direction but a fun one!

About two years ago, as most of you know, the physical doors of Park Street Market closed as I had finished my Masters Degree and my mother-in-law was about to have her first grand baby that was six hours away - long story short...life happened. I couldn't fathom closing it completely and never having anything else to do with it. I opened up an online boutique, but didn't dedicate a whole lot of time to it because I was trying to figure out a new direction. I was doing quite a bit of custom home decor ordering, doing a little bit of invitation ordering, but ultimately not keeping up with the website. I've kind of been in limbo on what direction to take next.

Fast forward four months ago when my mom and I began talking about vinyl design and purchased my first vinyl machine. It took me a while to get my creative juices flowing again and I now absolutely love it! I decided maybe I had finally found a new direction for my little home based business :)

It's been fun coming up with new ideas and business has picked up through Facebook and word of mouth. I am getting all the details worked out on what I'll be offering as far as colors, etc and plan to update my website finally!

I will still offer other personalized items as needed such as personalized stamps, etc. and I am still doing some custom decor ordering for people wanting to remodel their house or just need a home makeover. I still love that aspect, but refocusing :)

Now I have a challenge for you! I am throwing around the idea of renaming Park Street Market since I am no longer on Park Street and am doing more personalized items. If you have a great idea for a new name and I use your idea or part of your idea I'll send a free personalized tumbler your way :) A win win for both of us!
