Looking Back on 2019 – The Year of GROWTH

Oh man you guys. What an incredible year this has been. As I write this post, it’s Salem Style’s 8th Birthday! Who would have thought that 8 years later, I would be sitting here typing away to you all with the fullest hear imaginable. In January of 2019, I chose the word “growth”. Whatever action I took, or decision I had to make, I kept saying in my head “will this help me grow?” Turn out, yes, yes it did.

Thank you. Thank you all for this awesome year. I am totally blown away by the amount of support from everyone.

2019 was the BEST YEAR Salem Style has ever had. All thanks to you, the #salemstylesquad 

I’m already so excited for 2020!

The Shop has Officially Launched!

Salem Style first opened a shop on Etsy in December 2011. Almost seven years later, September 2018 is the latest milestone. Now you can buy cozy accessories directly from salemstylestudio.com under shop.

This has been a dream that is becoming a reality. This new chapter of the shop is just beginning.

It’s incredibly exciting to be sharing this with all of you. At Salem Style, we’re all about keeping you warm and cozy in a great hat and scarf.

Turning Three :: A Look Back on 2014

I often think that it was incredibly silly to start a business right in-between Christmas and New Years. The shopping season is basically finished and the first sale opportunity was slim.  Now that we are three, (yes “we”, because Salem Style is another being), I think this was the best time to start. Having a business anniversary and the turn of the year at the same time is incredibly fitting, not to mention the accounting matches up to the calendar year perfectly. But more importantly, this is the time where people reflect on the past year, and set goals for the new year to come.

This past year has been fantastic. It started off shaky. Really shaky. The 2013 holiday season did not being what I thought it would in the shop, and the blog was basically non-existent. I was stuck in a 7 day a week job at a car dealership that I absolutely hated.  It only took until February to turn it all around. I started a new job in Boston (which I LOVE!) and I earned back the time to focus on Salem Style.

I am not going to go on and on and on, but one thing that has been amazing this past year is you. The interactions on social media and constant support and ideas have been wonderful.

This holiday season has set many new records for Salem Style, and I am overwhelmed and overjoyed. It has given me the confidence to continue and know that I can not only reach goals that I set, I can surpass them. Time to set some goals.

Cheers to leaving a great year behind and discovering a new year ahead.

Thanks for making me feel like a #GIRLBOSS
