shannon hopkins is an amazing woman - a dynamo who is always making things happen. she helped us rethink how to relaunch proost last year and facilitates the NET. as well as catalysing other peoples ideas and new business she has launched one of her own and expect it to fly!
it's called sweet notions and here is what shannon says about it in an e-mail...
You might know that I have launched a new initiative with a friend whereby we collect accessories and resale them through boutique events around the world. We did a pilot in the spring in America and found we were onto something. So we are publicly launching in both the US and UK in the autumn. This initiative is considered a social enterprise because we are trying to create multiple kinds of capital: economic, environmental, social and spiritual. I am excited about this venture and would love for you to go check out the website.
We really do need help to make this a success... We are still looking for women who will partner with us by clearing out their closets and giving us their accessories they no longer wear, and asking their friends to do the same. If you are interested there is a flier you can download from the website. We are also looking to book more boutique events for the fall calendar. Why don't you think about hosting an event in your home, office or church?
so gather your unwanted accessories, get your friends to, and host an event. and all the profits go here
