second hand

My fabulous aquisitions

I have to admit, i thought about the concept of Yourshop because I felt the need of a platform like this in my life. So we can basically say that it is a complete an utter selfish project….And therefore you can consider me as one of the most loyal costumers of the Yourshop-shops! ūüôā

This is why I thought about putting together all the different treasures i got though Yourshop this last year.

I love this amazing set of 3 prints handmade by POPUP STUDIO.
And the best thing? They came WITH the frames! (because knowing myself, it would get me months to find the perfect frames!)

I fell in love with this little owl made by Celsi-Créations as soon as i saw it on Yourshop. And since that they, this little fellow has been guarding our keys in our entrance.

Here is this wonderful Home Trainer i got a while back from Gomez, although i have to admit i am (still) not using it as much as I’d love to… (but i promise i will!) Well…at least i don’t have to have a bad conscious about the amount of money i spent on it ūüėČ

This beauty was to give away for free by Leen. And more than a simple bag, i got to know the wonderful person Leen is by having a little chat & coffee with her.

Actually, I love the encounters i have made¬†so far through Yourshop. One of the goals of the platform was ‘community building’. I love the fact that some of the people i have met through the project have become¬†baby-playdate-buddies or boardgame-allies!

Packed Vide dressing!

IMG_20141103_150916Yesterday’s Vide Dressing was… PACKED! Stands, clothes, shoes and bags eveywhere!

And for me it meant¬†combining business with pleasure ūüôā I gave out some flyers & business cards,¬†had some interesting chats & encounters. But it also meant 2 hours of baby & husband free shopping (!!) ¬† AND¬†new dresses and bags!

I call it my “ethical shopping”:

  • I can quench my¬†thirst for new (yet cheap) clothes
  • i can give some pocketmoney to the lovely ladies for making the effort of coming to the maket and offering me their clothes
  • and we all recycle!

–>¬†a total win/win/win situation for me, the ladies¬†and the planet!¬†ūüôā

Also, with the help of the adorable Sonia, I also made a little test for a new feature soon available on Yourshop -> Business cards!

Sonia had a stand at the Vide Dressing. And when some people got tired of looking around, she offered them her business card, saying¬†that they can see more from her clothes¬†on Yourshop.lu… and on this business card was¬†the¬†direct link to her shop: www.3sonianej.yourshop.lu.

Sonia’s 60 cards were all gone in less than 45 minutes! She said that the feeback was very positive and would love to have more on her next market! YAY!

Meanwhile if you are on Yourshop and would like to have some businesscards for your next market, don’t hesitate to het in touch so we can get this done for you too!
