Happy New Year… and all that jazz!
The silly season took hold of us in November and December so our blog and social media took a back seat while we focused our energies on the feet inside the store! To top it off we decided to refurb one of our three main rooms… you must pop in and see the clean and fresh new space!
2015 was another fab year for us. Thank you for being part of our growth, without your support we would not be where we are today. I have just finished writing my business plan for 2016…in doing so I looked back and reflected on the year gone by…. Here are my 5 fave successes of 2015…
1// In 2015 I wrote a business tips series on the blog sharing tips and suggestions for creative business owners… you can check them out here!
2// Some brilliant new suppliers joined our family, Glass gardens, Brigitte Laurent, iSpy and Phlo studio are my faves! Jinger Jack handbags became our best selling Christmas gift and Antjies salts, scrubs and soaps make the shop smell amazing!
3// Therubyorchard.co.za was born in 2015 and a little online shop launched for you far away folk!
4// We built a house, this was a huge distraction from work and the shop for a month or two… building is seriously not for the faint hearted! I gave you a look through my key hole, shared my decor buys and home study space and put together the Ruby Look Book to inspire you to ‘Get The Ruby Look‘.
5// Yard 41 was born… Our unique development of beautiful retail spaces, offices, restaurant and garden centre started to creep into the skyline of Howick during 2015. Watch this space… only a few months to go and we’ll be opening the doors to some beautiful new places and spaces!
Here’s to 2016… Join our next Chapter… it’s going to be unbelievable!
