Most of you know I've been dabbling a little bit with tutu outfits and tutu's. I've had pretty good success with selling to friends/family/word of mouth from friends, etc... I recently sold an outfit to a friend from high school who happens to be an Arbonne (I have linked Amy's Arbonne page in case any of you want to check it out) consultant. So what does Arbonne have to do with me making tutu's?? Ever year Amy has a Holiday Open House to showcase her Arbonne product to customers she already has, and to people in the community who want to find out about the product as well. She rents out a local place to host the even and this year she also has consultants with Cookie Lee, Gold Canyon, Longaberger & Tastefully Simple. That's where I come in... She asked if I would be interested in joining the Open House to get my name and product out there. Also because they don't really have anything there that is geared towards babies/toddlers/kids. Amy said a majority of the people are there doing their Christmas shopping and she really thought I would be a hit. I'm SOOO excited to take on this new adventure and hopefully get my name out there!
I've created business cards, a website (a blog for now) and have been making hair bows for the event every chance I get. I've decided I'm not going to make up a bunch of outfits to sell at the event because its too hard to guess the sizes/styles people will want but, I will have plenty of outfits on display for people to see them in person. I also plan to bring a portfolio of all the outfits I've made for people to get an idea on themes and color schemes that I've done. I'm hoping by making up a bunch of hair bows those will sell at the event. I'm making quite a few Christmas bows which hopefully will be a hit since the event is December 5th and still plenty of time for Christmas. I want to take this opportunity to thank Amy for including me in this event!! I'm really hoping its a success for me, to get my feet off the ground and continue to do something I love!
I decided to name the business 'TuTu Cute by Molly'. What do you all think of it? I linked my blog as well so you can check it out and tell me what you think! I created a PayPal button so people can securely check out and purchase the items without worrying about their personal information going any further! Thank you all for the sweet comments on the outfits and for continuing to read my blog :) Here are the 2 newest outfits I made last week... a Christmas themed outfit for a baby shower gift and the outfit I made for Amy's goddaughter to be a Princess!
