We've got some exciting news to share this week!
Earlier in the week, I got a message inviting me to have a space inside the P20 Land and Cattle Interiors and More in our hometown. For several months, I've watched P20 open up in one location and then move to their current store. I've told Jeff before, that if there was a store in town that I might be interested in working with, it would be P20. I actually met De Ann when we had a space in Mineola a few years ago and remember having a fun conversation with her. She's ordered a few tees and I've stopped in to grab a few gifts and a cute metal chandelier for my camper. As always, when I got the message this week, I first debated with myself if this is something I can take on, it would be another set of inventory to keep up with, do I have time, yada, yada, yada. I went by and looked at the space Wednesday while I was in town and by Friday afternoon, I had my little space set up. When I got there, they had cleared even more room for me, so I'll actually be expanding a little more in the coming weeks, but this happened suddenly and we will make improvements as we go along. Two different customers came in and bought 2 shirts before I finished setting up, so that was exciting!
I've heard the P20 customers love Piggy things and I just happen to have two different pig shirts that I'll be taking up there in a few days! As always, I love to hear the things that you want to see and have. Your ideas help inspire us to create new things for you. (Please keep in mind that I stay clear of copywrited, licensed, or trademarked designs, to the best of my knowledge.)
If you've not shopped in P20 yet, it really is the cutest little store! From furniture and decor to sheet sets, burlap door hangers, Little Bit Loopy crochet by our friend Shone, hot sauce, seasoning mixes, purses, jewelry, and so much more. Catch my Live Facebook announcement and get a little glimpse around the store.
It's hard to believe, but I remember shopping for school clothes in this very building and now I have clothes for sale there. Never dreamed I would be making clothing, when I was growing up! If anyone remembers the name of that store from the 80's, please let me know. It's located on the corner of Davis St (west side of the courthouse square) and Hwy 154, also know as West Tyler St downtown.
You can find P20 on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with store hours, special sales, and events happening downtown.
Now, to settle the rumors that were flying right after I made the announcement about P20 - we still have our space at Kickin' K Cattle Co in Quitman, Texas, with no plans to leave there (I actually have a contract there.) This was an opportunity that was presented to us this week, and 2020 being what it is, well I decided to embrace the opportunity that was extended to me. P20 is in our hometown and I pass through Gilmer almost every day, so stocking it will be convenient and our Gilmer friends and family have been so good to us showing up at all our events over the past few years. We only have one event left on the calendar - the Gilmer Yulefest on December 5th (I'll have my camper on the square that day!) With no other pop up events or shows on the radar for foreseeable future, we felt this was a good move to have some things available for you to conveniently shop downtown. Gilmer and Quitman are about 40 minutes apart and I live between the two towns, but they both attract different clientele. With two spaces, this gives our friends more convenient options to shop locally. If you are not local or prefer to stay home and shop online - that will always remain an option as well. You can shop our website at www.gypsyfarmgirl.shop (newest tees are always available here before etsy) or our etsy shop gypsyfarmgirl.etsy.com. You can also "tap to shop" some of our items in our Facebook and Instagram pictures, if you see the little shopping bag icon in the bottom of the picture. Don't forget the Tee of the Week deal is back on our website or if we have the shirt in either boutique space, you can show them the image from our social media with the current special and they will honor it.
The pictures below are from our Kickin' K booth in Quitman. As you can see, right now, it has way more inventory there, but we will be adding more to P20 soon. We make all our own shirts, so it does take some time to get everything made and ready for the booths.
So that's the new and exciting news happening around here. As always, we thank you for being a part of this journey with us! I couldn't do it without all of you! Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season ahead.
