Coming up in 2015…

15 Jan

After a cosy Christmas I’m back into the New Year with lots of plans to put into action!

After much debate, time spent gathering and refining design ideas, conducting market research and many, many lists, my New E-commerce Website will start being built next month! I wanted to wait until I was sure of my product and brand before going down this route and I’m glad that I did, as I now have a really clear idea of how it’s going to work and am ready to go!

There will be updates along the way, but if you follow me on Pintrest or Instagram I’ll be posting some early previews of how it’s all going to look! If you’re interested in me letting you know as soon as it’s launched, just fill in your email address on the current Holding Page and you’ll be notified the minute it goes live.

In the meantime my first Fair of the year has been booked in and I’ll be at the St Gemma’s Hospice Vintage Fair on 7th & 8th March. It’s the first of the year and bound to be full of the joys of spring, so do come and say hi.

Changing the focus of a blog..

So, I started this blog when I started my vintage advertising art business, The Deco Press.  I’ve posted (fairly) regularly for a few months now. Had you noticed my posts have been pretty random in theme?

Well this is fine, but I’ve felt that I hadn’t quite found the purpose of my blog.

I knew I wanted to highlight the gorgeousness that is Art Deco and the beauty of vintage advertising but how to make this a long-running, interesting story I hadn’t quite worked out!

By just getting on and writing I felt that purpose would eventually come to me…and now it has..

I’m around 7 months in from launching The Deco Press and it’s been an exciting and challenging time. I started out with nothing more than the grain of an idea and have grown from there.

Partly for my benefit (as I’m not good at documenting milestones and achievements) and, I hope, for yours, I’m going to go back to the very start and show exactly what I’ve done and the steps I’ve taken to get this far…hopefully I won’t catch up with myself!

Next post: Why did I want to start up a business in the first place?
