latest shop plans

I'm going to keep the whole shop, and have it as the country's largest independent only jewellery shop. Going to offer a space to indie jewellery people around leeds for £5 and they have to work 2 hours a week. should be able to get in 10 people, which covers the rent, and should make 20 hours of manpower so i don't have to work all the time.

I think this could be something amazing, like an independent Goldsmiths or something. Hopefully I can have some sale or return stuff from online people as well (taking commission) I'd keep my half of the shop with stationery, toys, cards and stuff, and a bit of jewellery, so it's kind of like a one stop gift shop.

What do you think?

email from tiff

"Hi Chloe,

Hope you are ok. I do also hope that life at The Yard is good for you."

would be better if i wasn't having to sell your stock and work 6 days a week, but whatever.

"Thank you again for the help with it all."

like i had a choice

"If the bills are now paid and your over heads are covered do you want me to arrange for a driver to come and take my stuff away."


"James was awfully disappointed to lose so much stock but he also understood that this was the only and best way to cover the expenses."

maybe he should have come and worked those three days a week for the month's notice you had to give - oh hang on, he couldn't cause i just found out he's been doing community service for glassing someone in the face

"I lost account of how much I owed Michelle as I seemed to have financial burdens all over the place and did not know where to start."

well, michelle didn't know either, so she just took a load of furniture and mannequins, and all the money i made

"I am still sorry it may seem as if I just ran away but I have tried to handle this as graciously as I can, bearing in mind my health did not allow me to do anything like what I wanted to acheive. I just broke down. And I felt embarrassed that I was not in control."


"I now have an accountant and have to account for everything I do, where my stock has gone and how I have paid my rent to The Yard etc. This is good, as I can see on paper where I have gone wrong and how I can make things right for the future. So would Michelle mind sending me a breakdown of what got sold and for how much. A lot of people have already contacted me to say they are pleased with their wares etc, so that is positive both for myself and The Yard. And I do hope that by selling via The Yard, although it made a lot of work for you, it did spread the Brand more so than if I sold it from home, online."

oh and sorry? you want to know how much you've made, and where it's gone? well michelle has had it all, except what i've used to pay staff. oh yeah and also the other people in the shop have been taking your stock without me knowing, so i haven't got any idea where that is

"Also if you could let me know if any of the Mannequins sold. I do know what is in the shop etc."

is that a threat?

"Chloe you must take funds from the sales to cover your hard work, I am hoping you have already done that."

don't you worry love, i fucking have

"I cannot thank you enough. I do not know what I would have done without you. And I do miss you."

you'd have had the bailiffs round. i don't miss you.

"Please let me know what would be easiest for both you and Shell. I can arrange a Collection for next week?"

easiest? never seeing you again, so just fuck off


shop decisions

I'm selling the furniture, mannequins and all tiffany's stuff to pay off her debt with michelle. I'll be keeping commission. I feel good about this decision

So does anyone need a mannequin? I'm doing everything half price.

all the mannequins and the rest of her stuff is in this album here - http://s41.photobucket.com/albums/e277/pesky33/selling/Butterfly%20attic/

just let me know if you want anything. I just want to make some money back on my rent


so i agreed to go into this shop with tiff. we both have contracts with michelle, so we weren't going into business together. in fact every time tiff told anyone we were business partners, i corrected her. I told her i wanted to keep my own brand, shop name, etc.

two weeks ago i moved in. she bought us breakfast, she was excited. she's done nothing but plug the shop since. before i moved in she asked me to make sure it was what i wanted, and i promised to stay for 3 months. we both decided to trial it for 3 months

two weeks later, the day after a head injury when i'm concussed, and looking after ian for ten days, she tells me she wants out. she's got shingles, and me being hit on the head is apparently the last straw.

now, i can stay where i am, but it's double the rent, and i'd have to work 6 days, exactly the reason for shop share. i loved the shop, and now i hate it. i feel betrayed, hurt and emotional. maybe it's because i'm concussed. i feel like an idiot. she's ignoring everyone trying to ring her, and except for a post on facebook saying she has shingles, to which everyone is being very understanding, she's gone silent.

i haven't been nasty. not as nasty as i feel, because it's raw and i don't want it to get nasty. but i'm pissed off. she's in debt, which is why she wanted a shop share. she knew i had this week when i had to look after ian because as soon as i said i'd move in i told her about it. why couldn't she wait?

things just look so bleak. i feel winded, disappointed, like a failure. for fuck's sake

Ian and me

Haw haw!!!!!

haw haw!

you know that picture of angelina jolie in a t-shirt with the Eye-dia logo? well, crystal has decided she likes it so much, she's put in on her business cards. OH HOW I LOLLED

If you want to see her website, it's up and running now as well. AND BOY IS IT COVERED IN FLASHING GLITTER - it's like a best/worst website, even though she actually likes it


Fave quote - "It is as big as seen in the picture"

OH YES WHILE I AM HERE i have a new website under construction - if you want to have a look it is here - http://lbc.fancypantscreative.com/ - I'm liking the clean-ness of it already, everything is really well laid out, while retaining a bit of pesky charm. Any comments before it's finally published will be gratefully received though.
