It’s been an interesting period in the store. We’ve seen all sorts of people come and go – many walk into the space and spend time looking, touching, trying; some stop by for a chat , directions or advice; others are on a mission – they are after a certain something for a a special event. But everyone appears to relish the experience. Some recent comments include: “There is nothing like this in Sydney!”; “I have to buy something just to say that I was here.”; “Next time I come, I am bringing all my friends.” Geesh, we love you guys!
While we’re chuffed that our humble store is such a sensory experience for our customers, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes. There is the frequent re-merchandising (don’t want things to look stale); inventory lists (need to know how much we have of everything); buying, importing and travel (the latter is a real pain, I can tell you!); marketing (need to get out there); e-newsletters updates (that reminds me, I haven’t done that in a while); website housekeeping for this blog and webstore and our mini sites on hardtofind and downthatlittlelane; daily/weekly social media updates via facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram and such. This does not include designing our in house fashion accessories (also a real pain!) and liaising with our manufacturers in The Phillipines, Bejing and India. But do you know what? I am not complaining. I love it. My customers love it. And as long as that remains the case – long live MISS MOSS. Keep trudging up the stairs to our store and enjoy the experience. Following are some recent photos (taken on my phone, apologies for the quality) of some chuffed customers and in-situ shots. Have a great day.
