Making the decision to turn a hobby into a business can be difficult. Knowing when you have reached a level of experience that ensures you are providing a product that will not disappoint consumers can take a lot of internal struggle, as most people are their own harshest critics. The internal struggle could take a long time to settle.
Or, you could run into Tammy Saunders of Tammy’s Cool Things and let her make the decision for you.
Saying you have had a conversation with Tammy is like saying you have had a chat with a tornado. Though she is a hippie at heart, she is a force of nature in energy.
I knew Tammy from her store but the first time she saw any of my pieces was at a benefit auction in 2010. She immediately wanted to know why my jewelry was not in her store.
She took the guesswork out of whether I was ready to sell or not. I loved Tammy’s shop and if she wanted Tide Together in her inventory; I would deliver.
Here we are headed into 2015 and I am still making deliveries. Tammy’s Cool Things has been providing Tide Together to the world longer than any other venue.
It also remains one of my personal shopping vices.
And now that Tammy’s Cool Things has found a cool home in Trappe, MD with plenty of space – it is also the spot for some of my favorite events.
New items from Tide Together will be in stock by this weekend. Stop by and let your inner hippie come out and play!
