Day 22: What I Love About My Job
Being the owner of a shop means that I get to constantly flex my creative muscles, choosing lines that speak to me, finding the right fits and styles and brands with fascinating backgrounds and stories. I love carrying the most comfortable jeans in the world, Yoga Jeans, which will make you a believe if you ever put your butt in them. I love coming to work each day not knowing who I will meet or what opportunities will present themselves. I love taking a space and, bit by bit, making it my own. I love being able to employ a wonderful gal to work with me at the shop & I love being a part of our downtown. If you've been reading my blog a little while, you probably know that I grew up in this city and I really do love raising my daughter in this community. Having a shop in the middle of downtown Peterborough means a connection to the city that's tight knit and supportive. What I love about my job is the freedom to make changes, to express myself an to make Tango a place for women to come and feel at home, comfortable in their bodies & just to have a good time. I love decorating for the holidays and hosting events. It's not an easy thing to run a retail shop. It's a lot of hard work and long hours, but it's rewarding and fulfilling to know I've carved out a spot for myself, and can support my family in this way.
Thank you to everyone who has visiting my little piece of downtown. I hope you'll come say hi if you ever make it to Peterborough!
PS. To my local loves, come out to the Fashion Night for Health -- part of this year's Festival of Trees action! We'll be rockin' out at The Venue 6-10pm. See ya!
