I just don't get it...

I went to this great talk today on local area know, business stuff. Any way apparently you've got to have online presence these days, website (check), Blog (check), Facebook (check) and you absolutely must Twitter!
Being the NON-early-adopter that I am, I've resisted social networking sites for years. Recently I caved and joined Facebook. Strictly for business reasons...but now I really enjoy using it for personal stuff like sharing photos of Emma with faraway family and friends etc...
"But that's where I draw the line..." I told my sister" won't catch me tweeting!"
So when
Debra Templar, Retail Guru extraordinaire says you must Tweet, well then I may have to re-think my position.

So I've been trying to work it out, doing research...but I just don't get it!
Help me out here guys! Am I missing something? So far this is the most informative thing I've come up with, and it sort of re-enforces my position. And it's funny...

HUGE SALE starts tommorow...

I've just spent 2 whole days marking down stock and re-arranging the shop. Have got lots of good stuff to clear. I'm in de-cluttering mode!
Massive markdowns, 30-60% off end of season Summer and Winter clothing, baby wear, accessories, books and lots of odds and ends that have no friends to co-ordinate with.

This one is really worth telling your friends about!
I've organised all the clothing into sizes to make it easier to find what you're after. Get into the store or checkout some limited items online to nab a bargain.

On till the end of February or till we sell out.

Re-Opening Soon...What I did on my holidays...

Yes, it's almost back to school time...I hope everyone has enjoyed their Summer Holidays. I know I have. I can't wait to catch up with everybody and hear what you've been up to...Our story so far...

Emma has started crawling and is really keeping me on my toes. Needless to say, chasing her around the house seems to have become my full time job! Hard to get a good shot of her these days as she's moving at the speed of light!

I've started a new blog called MADE OF CLOTH, it's about what I get up to in my sewing room when I'm not making stuff for My Poppet. Am really enjoying it, I hope you like it too.

Have gathered a few great fleamarket finds, they'll be uploaded in the next few days so keep an eye out for those.

The usual Christmas stuff- looks like it will be Christmas all year round at my place, because I haven't had time to take the decorations down yet!

The store Re-opens on Wednesday the 27th, the day after Australia Day. I'll need to make way for the new winter clothing ranges arriving soon. So, the red marker will be out reducing prices on quite a lot of clothing...more about that tomorrow...
