What a week! When starting Literary Emporium I never thought I would be completely rushed off my feet with orders but this week has been mental!

I’ve hit a major order milestone on my Not on The Street shop and I’m so very grateful to all my customers for giving me such a positive start to my craft business.

Not on the High Street warned all sellers of a large increase in orders in the run up to Christmas. They weren’t lying! This is orders from last weekend. The Post Office loved me on Monday!

I’m still working full time at the moment so my evenings have mainly consisted making, packaging, and everything else that comes with running a business. It’s no exaggeration when I say I haven’t had a free minute spare during the day.

Luckily I was able to put the man to work and he’s been amazing with helping me with everything from setting up a stamping production line.... making me lovely food.

I've only got four days left of employment and then I’m on my own! So despite having no time to sit down at the moment, I’m so pleased that it’s going as well as it is. So thank you to all those literature geeks out there who have bought items from my shop – I’m very grateful :)
