Launching my Kickstarter campaign
I was really scared about launching my Kickstarter campaign, but it has been incredible. Thank you to everyone who has supported my dream so far – my haberdashery will definitely be opening!
I thought I’d share a quick post about my Kickstarter today as there are 7 days left to pledge to help me open up my dream bricks-and-mortar haberdashery shop at my studio. Currently, 141 people have made a pledge to support it and it’s 844% funded – how amazing is that?! I was honestly so nervous about launching my Kickstarter campaign because I had absolutely no idea what to expect. My initial target was £500 (to be able to buy shelving for the shop) and I planned to add another goal of £500 for wheelchair ramps and some signage. The first target was smashed in 41 minutes!
Kickstarter launch video
When I launched my campaign, I shared this video on YouTube to share a bit more about it. You can see the space and I talk you through what my plans for the shop are. Since filming, I’ve been decorating a bit more (and had a few days off) so I’m planning to do another video soon! With the extra funds already pledged, I’m planning to purchase a till system that works with my website, some new blinds and window vinyls. It’s looking bright and colourful already! Once I’ve received the money from Kickstarter, I’ll be working hard to open towards the end of October (exact date TBC).
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has pledged, shared and liked my campaign. I’ve been speaking to lots of local people recently and it’s lovely to know that people are excited. YAY! It ends at 17:59 on 10th September 2021.
If you have any questions, please do get in touch. Everything in the shop will be available online too, so if you’re not able to visit in person then I’ve still got you covered!
