I know this is wayyyyyyy late... well maybe by a week, but it's been a little crazy lately.  Not a bad crazy just a busy crazy.  With the shop up and running now, things have been in few swing, and there has been no turning back.

We were at the "Works" in Raleigh, NC last Wednesday for the 4th.  The BF and I woke up at 5 am and headed out early.  We weren't really sure what to expect, so we wanted to make sure that we were one of the first people there to set up.

When we arrived the first thing that popped in my head was New York City.  We were surrounded by enormous buildings, and we were to be set up right in the middle of it all.  The sun was shining and we were ready for the people to come.  This was the first year that Raleigh was having the fireworks at this location, so no one knew what the turn out was going to be.

It didn't take long for the people to arrive.  It was a steady crowd all day.  We were loving it although it was HOT.  We were lucky to have power this time, so we had the fans running full blast.  Everything was going great UNTIL the down pour came.  I was a nervous wreck the entire time.  Everyone was running for cover and seeking shelter.  Although we were ok because we do have a "indoor"shop, I was so scared that the water was going to bust my awning.  Thank heavens my dad and the BF was there, as they were having to continuously drain the water from the sides.  I'm glad it decided to not rain all day and the sun came back out.

Around 4:30 is when it started to get busy.  In fact it got so busy there were times where I got a little over whelmed.  I looked over and not only was I helping people, but I could see that to my right my dad was helping people and to my left there was the BF helping a group.  It was great.  I had the two best men in my life right there next to me, on this wonderful journey of mine!  As it started to get dark, the crowd only kept coming.  There were was shoulder to shoulder traffic, and we were right in the middle of it all.  I was loving every moment.

The fireworks started up, and I really did feel like I was living the American dream.  The shop looked so pretty all lit up at night and with the fireworks in the back ground, it was awesome seeing my dream becoming a reality.  I met so many great people that day!  Thank you all who came.

Stay tuned for our next journey!

Well it was another wonderful day with the shop.  We were at the Person County Personality festival today, enjoying the sunshine, people, and some great music.  It was a hot one, but we were lovin the people that came out to visit.  It is always so nice to be able to listen to some live music while we are up and running.  There were some men that were playing some really good blue grass music, and I don't think we were the only one's enjoying it.  

Overall it was a great Saturday!  How has your weekend been so far!?!

Happy Wednesday!  Ahhh yes the middle of the week.  Now if we can all just make it to Friday, and then we will be free and ready for another great weekend!
Sorry I am writing so late.  It has been quite the busy week!  I had such a blast last weekend at the Flea.  Being at the Raleigh Flea market makes me feel like I am at home.  I get to meet so many different wonderful people.  The Go Girl Shoppe definitely feels the love when we are out there, not to mention the weather was wonderful.  You know what this means!?!  MORE VENDORS!   There were many great vendors out there as well, with the most interesting arrange of items.  You never really know what you will find when you are out there.
It was great to see so many new faces, and to make my days even better there were a few people that came to see the shop that saw on facebook that we would be out there.  I love it!  Keep on following us, we love our friends.

This coming Saturday we will be at the Personaility Festival in Roxboro NC.  Not only will you get to visit The Go Girl Shoppe but there will be a lot of activities, and other vendors there as well.
 Visit for more information.

Well hello again!  I am back in one piece.  I had the greatest time in the lovely town of Charleston South Carolina.  With the help of the boyfriend prying my fingers away from the shop, I was able to take a short vacation, which I was totally needing!  My best friend moved down there a couple of years ago.  A dreamer herself, she decided she wanted to get away, so she pack her bags, and headed towards the beach (however in a different state).  The visit was way over due, and I am so happy I got to see her.  Even better she just bought her first house, which was the cutest.

We did a lot of sight seeing, and saw so many cute shops.  I just love the vibe some of the stores exudes.  Charleston is very much so a historic town, that has the college town vibe.  It's kind of strange.  It gives off this old town money mixed with people who are eclectic, and artsy.  Totally me if I must say.  I wish I could have stayed longer, however the shop must go on.

Keep a look out.  We are planning on some new adventures out in June.  Get excited get excited.  We are working on some new items, that are going to be fun.  Be on the look out for us.

Amazing!  What a Saturday at the Hillsborough Hog Day.  I could not have asked for a nicer day.  The weather was great, the people I met were the greatest... everything about it was just wonderful!

The boyfriend and I woke up at 3 AM... yes, you read this correctly - 3 AM!  We wanted to make sure that we were able to get the Go Girl in her spot.  Little did we know that we would be the first people there and we were ok with that.  We were ready!

We were able to set the girl up and anxiously waited for the people to arrive.  We really didn't know what the turn out was going to be like, however we were just excited to be there.  I had the cowgirl boots and chick apron on, the love and support from my friends and family, and I was ready to start the day.  

The blue grass music was playing, the barbecue winners were announced, and the gates were opened for the people to come in to the venue.  

I had a blast meeting so many people who loved and enjoyed all the things in the shop - things that I love myself.  I received nothing but great positive feedback about the shoppe.  The best part of my day was when these adorable girls asked if I was hiring.  It's customers like that who reassure me I am on the right track of bringing my customers a unique shopping experience.

I have had two fabulous shows in May.  Over the next few weeks I will be re-grouping and taking a little down time with the boyfriend on a little vaca.  Also, I will be going on a little adventure hunting for more fun and exciting things to bring back to the Go Girl Shoppe.  Stay tuned and visit back with me for future updates on what the go girl is up to and where she will be next.
