Remember October Rains? The brand I was going to start. Well my samples are ready, but god knows why I haven't been feeling motivated enough to started marketing it as yet. It's very easy to come up with ideas, buy the cloth and get a tailor to make it for you. But the setting up a business, working on the website, marketing your product, not so easy. Especially, if you barely have anybody helping you.
Just dealing with the creative aspect and letting somebody else sell your product seems so much easier. Infact, I had been thinking about taking my samples to various boutiques and asking them if they were interested in selling my designs. I guess I didn't believe in myself enough to go out there and convince people to do that.
Today I went to Azaad Bazaar for the third time.After a while, the lady at the store casually asked us what sort of things would we like to see at the store. I really like how they want to take that extra effort to make sure all of us find exactly the things we're looking for. So I started telling her the sort of bags I wanted to see, which somehow lead to me giving her a few ideas on what she could possibly do. She seemed to like them and told me it would be so much better if I just execute them myself. She'll be happy to display them in her store with a small percentage for herself, of course. My Reaction? A grin that spread so wide, it almost couldn't spread anymore (*rolls her eyes*).
I love their store so much. It's not like there's much for me to buy, they're really nice people, so you always feel welcome. Plus, they always give us free stuff. Me and freebies, we go a looong way. The first time we went there, they gave us awesome kaju-katri, second time we got 5-stars AND key chains and today I had my first cup of black tea(which I totally loved btw). And now they're willing to sell my stuff if they really like it! I absofuckinglutely love them!
P.S. I'm going to mail some of the stuff now and show them the rest tomorrow. Wish me luck! :)
