ptp on instagram

Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 9.49.19 PMIt’s officially Friday! You know what that means, right? It means that I have gone a week without discussing my new store, so today I am going to hit you with another post! Ok, so maybe you didn’t know what that meant. 

Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 9.50.04 PMI’ve already begun to promote Potomac Trading Post, Ltd. on my personal Instagram account. With over 400 followers, about 30 of them were nice enough to add PTP to their accounts, too. Then one day earlier this week, I had logged onto Instagram and to my surprise I had gained over 40 followers within a span of a few hours. My initial reaction was that my account had been spammed or hacked. Then I noticed that I was tagged in someone’s photo. It turns out that a local IG account heard about my store, and began promoting it on their page!

Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 9.52.01 PMI was so happy and felt so honoured to have this great support from my city and its residents. Saskatoon is growing more and more artsy every year. I feel that if I’m going to be starting up a store like Potomac Trading Post, Ltd., with its antique, handmade, collectible, and wearable items, this is the city to do it in. It is the largest in our province, and yet it is still a small city by most standards. I hope that the store will become a big fish in a little pond. That way, when it’s about to burst out of its surroundings, I can take it to the lake or the ocean and expand it there. In the meantime, baby steps.

Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 9.49.40 PMThese are some of the photos that can be found on the Instagram account for the store. Please add PTP if you would like to support a small business, and have yet another line of communication to the girl behind it all. Me.

well that is we stayed in a cabin in our national park. for me though, that’s roughing it. ;-)

favorite fridays.

plant shopping.

while my husband and i did not turn this shopping trip into a fashion show (like elsie and emma from a beautiful mess did), we loved shopping for plants this year!

because we went just before mother’s day, we made it our goal to not only buy some indoor and outdoor plants for ourselves, but to purchase gifts for our mother, mother-in-law, and baba. 

DSCN5756_2first we visited rona…which did not have anything that we liked.

DSCN5761 DSCN5767 DSCN5764 DSCN5771so we hopped back into our vehicle and went to our much nicer and locally-owned greenhouse. it was a success!

DSCN5772 DSCN5773_2 DSCN5779 DSCN5786 DSCN5783_2 DSCN5791i would like to make plant shopping a new spring tradition of ours.

DSCN5775tell me, do you also look forward to this each year?

p.s. we will be going away this weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. here’s to love, laughter, and sunshine!
