I received some new products today, which I had ordered weeks ago ! Because I wasn't home when the DHL Express courier knocked on my door the first time. And because I didn't realize that the products were ready to be picked up already. I really love some of the new products, and then there are others of which I think: why the fuck did I order them ?! Just as with normal shopping, you can end up with unnecessary products when buying for a shop as well. And in the end your are not able to get rid of them, because your customers don't want them either. I have some of those products in my shop right now. Products that simply won't be sold, because nobody wants them. I'm usually someone who prefers to play safe. If I see products that I like, I ask my customers and followers first, how they like them, and if the feedback is good, I will order the products. I have many different suppliers, and finding good quality products at a reasonable price is really hard, do you know that ? All earrings, that are above 10€ are of really good quality. All earrings below have ok quality. I would never buy anything that's completely shit, but since I want to offer many different designs and price ranges, I can't avoid ordering products with lower quality as well. In the end I just want my girls to be happy with their purchases. But remember, my products are fashion products, it's no real handcrafted jewelry, so of course the quality will never be as good as real designer products. Otherwise it wouldn't be that cheap either. Nowadays people always want cheap cheap cheap, and good quality. Which is an expectation too hard to keep for small shop owners like me. I don't sell 10000 pieces a day, so that I still make profit by selling them at a very low price. This is my job, and it's a lot of work, so it also has to pay off for me as well, otherwise I couldn't pay my phone bills to upload Instagram photos for Floralpunk.
All in all I can't complain. Floralpunk is being received well, and I can't wait to expand my shop with clothes and other accessories ! I don't want to sell earrings forever you know. Because at some point, I'm sure, people will want more and more new arrivals. With sourcing beautiful, affordable jewelry only, that demand will be hard to keep. I'm going to stock the Frends headphones next, and the Quay sunglasses in April. I will also stock some clothes from young Vietnamese designers. Believe me, you will love those. Good quality pieces, at an affordable price. Can't wait to share those with you ! But step by step. First things first. A small new arrival update tomorrow ! If you want these products, you better be quick, because I don't have a lot of them.
