Well what a month October has been for us at the Boutique. History is important in business, you look at sales for October last year and make stock solutions and choices based around that. Well this year we were tracking along and then in the last two weeks we were much busier than I expected.
To this end we had to do a top up order of 60+ breast forms to carry us through again.... and to be sure 99% of our ladies leave with their new forms when they come in.
Helen and I have had an awesome month at the shop, we love coming to work, we have fun working together and we love looking after our special ladies. Helen and I worked together in my Simone Perele days many years ago.. she is a very talented lingerie fitter and her skills have found her a natural home here at Spirit of Life. We work very well together. Being a cosetier takes a lot of skill and training. When I started out many, many years ago every fitting I did was checked by a superior to ensure it was right for quite some time. I learned fast and I guess that is why our reputation as skilled fitters is now known far and wide. So many women either don't get a professional fitting or else get a poor professional fitting. Either way they end up in an uncomfortable bra. Sadly we see this every day at work. But they always leave with a smile on their face.
You know, it is true... There is life and lingerie after breast surgery. And the looks of delight on the faces of our customers after we have fitted them, shows us they feel great about themselves again.
And that is what Spirit of Life is all about... helping you to look and feel your old self again.
Helen and I thank you for your continuing support of Spirit of Life and always look forward to seeing you in the Boutique. We shall both be having a short break between XMAS and the New Year but will be back refreshed to take care of you in 2020.
2020! Cannot believe that. This year marks 15 years since I purchased the store from its owners. I was managing Spirit of Life before that for a couple of years. The time has gone so fast. I have been meaning to drop in and chat with Julie Gallagher in her studio again.. probably won't happen until January. I shall let you know.
Once again, thank you for your patronage.. looking forward to seeing you soon in the Boutique.
