What's New with Perky Paper?

Back in February I signed a tiny little lease for a potting table inside GinGilli's Vintage Home in Geyserville, CA.  I've always been wondering if I could make a little business selling my handmade cards and this seemed like a great opportunity to try it!  The past few months that's what I've been working on - neglecting my blog and occasionally my household responsibilities! ;)  My creative mind quickly bypassed the card idea and went to all sorts of things: painting little items with chalk paint, finding & reselling small collectibles, sewing items to sell, etc.  My cards seem to be a consistently selling item, so I really need to focus back on that.  "Do one thing and do it well" comes to mind.

My other very consistent seller are my photo booth props.  Mustaches, glasses, top hats, and ties made of paper and mounted on sticks.  Simple but so fun! Saturday I was at the shop and a lady was there showing the shop keeper her phone. "There's Perky Paper right now!" the shop keeper said.  The lady then told me how she had purchased a top hat & tie from my space and used them in a photo shoot.  She said it was really fun and the pictures turned out great!  I was so glad to know that my little props were used to capture someone's fun personality!
