Oh my gosh!!!
It’s been two months since I’ve updated my website. These two months have been insanely busy for me. I can’t believe it. Really! Two months have passed since I’ve been able to sit down and breath and bring everything together.
But! Now is a moment for reflection…decompression. It’s time to sit down and make sense of what has transpired since June when I last updated you guys on what’s going on and where we are headed.
August was so Crazy for me. I mean “CRAZY,” but in a good way. As you guys know, I’ve opened my store at Chatuchak — the weekend market. Chatuchak, also known as JJ Market, is the biggest weekend market in Thailand. Everyone who visits Thailand makes Chatuchak a must see destination. The crafts, wares and products on display there are incredible. When I roam the aisles at JJ, I’m amazed by the wealth of talent and skill on display from the artisans, craftsmen and women especially the local folks from around Thailand. The products on display come from all destinations in our proud Nation. From Chiangmai in the north to Udon and the borders of Cambodia and Laos to the people of the South, we have a tremendous amount of talent in Thailand. I feel humbled and privileged to have become a part of the artistic scene of my beloved country.
Our shop is located in Section 21 Soi 1 in JJ Market. We have a full line of clothing, jewelry and accessories available for you, our customer. We hope that you will stop by and see us. We would love to see all of you. So…if you guys are interested, pls, stop by and see us.
Be prepared, though, to stay a while. I know that when I come to JJ, I can spend hours just roaming around and taking in all of the amazing art on display. You can find everything there from beautifully hand crafted furnishing to bargain deals on clothing, shoes and everything imaginable.
If you plan on stopping by, feel free to message me on LINE. My user name is WanderlusterDreams.
I’m not at the shop every week because I have other venues where I set up shop on different weekends. Even so, we’ll be open at JJ. If you want to meet me to discuss special custom orders, make sure you LINE me. We’ll set up the details and plan for an engagement. We want to make sure that you, the customer, are always happy with us.
Last month, I was rewarded with the wonderful opportunity to be a part of the “Thailand Industry Expo 2014” Fashion Show.
It was such a great experience and I felt honored to be welcomed as part of the show. The week leading up to it, I found myself so busy that I was running around like a rabbit. Back and forth between my studio, Chatuchak and the event venue. Oh, and yes, I was at Bangkok Farmers Market as well. Sometimes, I wish that I had a twin. I wish I had 10 hands to help me keep up with all of the activities.
From this experience, I realized that I need a partner. Someone willing to help me grow and help me make this happen. Most importantly, though, someone whom I can trust and who believes in what we are doing. I admit. I am a novice in this world. Business isn’t truly my forte but I’m learning. Learning to market. Learning to network. Learning all of the minutiae of building and growing a business from the ground up. I’ve learned much but I’ve much yet to learn. One important lesson that I’ve learned is that I can’t go it alone. No one can go it entirely alone. Alone is not a recipe for success in the business world. I’m fortunate so far to have been met some great people out here as I’m learning from my mistakes and failures on my way to future successes.
Back to my fashion show and about my contributions. Our theme for the Fashion Show was “fancy and colorful animals.” My partner, Eaw, and I came up with the idea of a Princess Peacock theme. We discussed the designs for dresses and jewelry. I designed and crafted the jewelry. Eaw designed and created the Princess Peacock dress.
The result was so beautiful and we so loved our model . She has such a beautiful face that suited our dress, jewelry and theme perfectly. She was a perfect fit and we were so proud of what we had created and the whole crew and the whole group love our JJSERIES fashion show. This was a magnificent experience and something to build on for the future. We’ve actually got in our mind to put on another Fashion Show in the future. Hopefully, we can do it at JJ Market.
