In honor of Nelson Mandela, it seems appropriate that today’s Wise Words belong to him.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
“Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”
“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”
Take these quotes with you and live better. Be strong, push through, and you will be rewarded. Thank you Nelson Mandela. May you rest in paradise, as you continue to inspire.
I hope that you support your local and favorite small businesses year-round, but today is designated as Small Business Saturday to encourage everyone to shop small for the holidays! This particular Small Business Saturday marks an important milestone in my own business endeavor. As I’ve mentioned before, I am a designer and I own a vintage shop, The Brass Giraffe. Well, as of today, The Brass Giraffe will no longer only be known for vintage! I welcome the launch of The Brass Giraffe Studio, a place to find handcrafted, one-of-a-kind, high-quality accessories!
It is something that has been in the works for awhile, but after a burst of recent inspiration I decided to take the leap! I always saw the future of The Brass Giraffe as a full online boutique and today I took one step closer to that goal. Currently, the studio is only carrying our house line, Gilly Lynn, which I design and handcraft exclusively. Eventually I hope to expand this section to include other independent designers and artisans. Go for your dreams.
Bohemian Diamond Clutch: by our house label Gilly Lynn. Find it here.
So while you’re shopping small this holiday season, stop by our website The Brass Giraffe for vintage and be sure to visit the Studio for handcrafted designs!
