Its our 1st Birthday! What a year! We still pinch ourselves that we are actually doing this.💕
We made the rather impulsive decision during lockdown last June to go for it after we both mentioned we’d always wanted our own shop. Our Education business was quiet as schools were closed and we thought – why not?
Two weeks later on 18th June we launched CSB after frantically building the website, setting up Instagram and facebook socials, opening a bank account and buying clothes from wholesalers. Two weeks of no sleep, lots of excitement, youtube video tutorials and endless phone calls and emails, we did it. Fast forward one year later and here we are. We are loving it. Our socials are growing, our orders keep increasing and our customer feedback is lovely.
We’re not going to lie, it’s hard work, especially as our other business is busy again now but we love a challenge. We are learning every day. We have met, and continue to meet, some lovely people and the support from other women on social media has been overwhelming.
Our family and friends have been amazing – from giving us feedback to modelling the clothes, ordering from us to just putting up with the endless posting on social media (and heads being buried in phones until late at night).
Massive thanks to everyone for all your support. We could not have done this without you all. We are so grateful.
Here’s to the next few years! 🥂
