It's funny that I have read your post today about it being difficult running an online store and working. I had an online store as of today. I have shut it down today for the same reason you have stated. I started it when I was a stay at home mom for something else to do besides being a stay at home mom. This summer I started working at our shop 3 days a week and have gone up to 4 days and some time next year I will up to 5 days. I was finding it very difficult to keep my store stocked, be a mom of 3 and home maker and working 4 days a week. Because of this I decided to close it and sell my items on etsy. This way I wont feel pressured to have stock all the time. I am posting my closure tomorrow on my blog. I think doing what you want to do could work. It can't hurt to try and see how it goes. Good Luck!

Hi Bristol,

I think it sounds like a great idea. Especially if it means more balance in your life. I agree with Lisa above ~ it certainly can't hurt to try and see if it works better for you!

Good luck with what you decide to do!!!

Hi Bristol,having owned a retail vintage boutique store now for 9 plus years open 7days a week ,my dream has been to do 4 or 5 seasonal fleas.I have found over the years that everytime there is a holiday sales are way up!Valentines
easter,maybe 4th of July/summer,fall, halloween and christmas?
My motto "I'll try anything once".
Best of luck


I think that's a wonderful idea. It gives you time to enjoy your family, work and do what you enjoy. It's also great for your really gives them something to look forward to.
