I missed the boat, while on the boat!

I can really kick myself. One of my girlfriends left me a message about flip flops going on sale at Old Navy for a dollar! Only I was gonna be on the anniversary cruise with hubby.. So i think to myself no biggie, I'll just catch it when I get back.. Now I'm not as insane as that last comment seems. Though I didn't expect to find much left after the sale, I had no idea the sale was only for one day! I'm screaming right now. This blog partially serves as a documentary, so hopefully I can look back a year from now and be reminded NOT to miss the $1 flip flop sale at Old Navy. You'd better believe that I'm already staking my claim on any flip flop in the store within a 50mile radius of me, (including online) lol... at season's end....

So most are probably wondering what the big deal is with wanting so many flip flops rt? Well, I plan to embellished them with bows, ribbions and of course sparkles :). I've done a few trial pair for the Posh Babies.. (Lauren, Tay, and Jeanie).

Now that summer is officially here, I'm determined to host a Posh Party. I just got the bright idea today to have a FLIP FLOP party before months end. So I'm setting my sights on 2weeks from tomorrow. I bought about 50 pair of flip flops from Old Navy today, and will make each pair unique.. "no two pair the same" I'm hoping that will help them sell.. I'm gonna host the party at la Masion de Williams.. :) and offer all flip-flops at a 50% discount! Crazy right... Well if my marketing strategy works, I'll make enough money to cover my expenses, build a catelog, put samples out, and hopefully build a client base.

I looked into wholesale flip flops, but most of them require minums and only come one size to a case.. Remember i'm a "small" business owner for now, so its imperative that i control cost. I hadn't found a quality style either other than cararis.. (hope i spelled that right). Only thing is they've discountinued the toddler flops with the band around the ankle.. So the search continues.. Until then OLD NAVY it is!

Other stuff I did this week...

First "bottle cap" bow design (its pictured attached to a braided headband)

First neck tie embellished onsie

First zebra design posh sparkles

I really feel like I've had a productive week... Now I just gotta start getting those flip flops cranked out :)

O..BTW Dorcas is heaven sent.. she's really helping to get me organized...
