OMG, we have so much to accomplish at one time it’s almost overwhelming. No one could ever believe what is going on at Downs Designs. On the surface, it appears not much is happening, but behind the scenes our office is buzzing with work.
Here’s a summary of what has happened since January through April, 2011:
At the same time our first shipment was delivered early in the year, the first samples of the children and youth sizes arrived as well. We were excited to see them. They looked great, but we still had no idea how they would fit. But we were so busy unloading our first shipment, getting adult fittings and preparing the website store to open, that the youth size samples were put on the back burner.
Now that our first order had arrived, the news media started to take notice. Michael Cardamone, my marketing agent, had put out a press release. Then our local newspaper, The News Herald, called and wanted to do a story about Downs Designs. I was thrilled, of course, but so disappointed about our men’s jeans.
