Wow, I’m so late writing my blog this month. I’ve been so busy I just haven’t had any time. But the busy is a good thing. So much good news to share and I wish I had more time to write.
First of all, what has happened since Laura came on board is nothing short of amazing. Sales are up eight times now and I’m hoping that November continues the trend. Sales are certainly not where they need to be but the fact that they are rising at such a good rate is very important for us. She has such creativity and a “heart” for what we do, that I’m so proud to have her as part of our team.
Our Facebook has been growing, thanks to Laura’s input. Also, our Newsletter is now functioning so look for our monthly updates and specials. If haven’t joined our mailing list, please do. You might be missing out on some suprises
Four more styles of men’s and teen boys are almost here. The Charlie and Michael Dip Down jeans and the Alex and Jacob Dip Downs should be available by the end of November. I think there are lots of you waiting for these sizes. Also, we just sent in our Youth patterns to the factory. They will begin the process now of preparing the samples for us. Once we get their samples we will test them on the two models we have been using. If they are good, then production can begin. Production will take about 3 weeks. Shipping may add another 4 weeks, but we may air ship a few of each size to get them in here sooner…not sure. The cost of air shipping is very, very expensive.
Well, I guess that sums up the last month or so of progress. I’m so excited the direction that we’re heading. I’m glad to see sales increasing and to see how happy our customers are with their new jeans. Our plans are to finish the first round of all the jeans, our second project will be to remake the woman’s jeans and thirdly, we will start making our jeans in black denim. I want to complete khaki and navy and possibly another denim color by the end of next year. We’ll just have to see how it plays out.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving holiday. I can’t believe it’s just around the corner. Thank you all for the support I have been getting and the pictures you have been sending. It’s so helpful for us to see how our jeans are looking on our customers.
