We are off to a good start, and because we didn't start doing this til March of last year I have no numbers to compare it to, but we seems to be following along the same lines as last year.
I have successfully gotten in the applications for Air Force and Army for trademark licensing. We have received acceptance from the Air Force have heard nothing from the Army and the repeated emails to the US Navy address I was given have not gotten any response at all. I am trying, but apparently with the budget cuts there are not enough people available to go through the paperwork.
We are continuing to add product to the web site, both new items and items being transferred over from Etsy. It is extremely slow going, I am trying to update the photos as we do the transfer so that is taking longer then I originally thought it would.
We also have a clearance section of items that I need to move out so that I can create some new and fresh items for sale. I also have craft fairs to start getting ready for and would like to add some things that customers have asked that I carry, but room is really tight right now with us moving and all the boxes starting to pile up.
We have introduced crocheted baby items to the web site, it has turned out to be more portable then the sewing I was doing, so gives me a opportunity to sit in front of the TV for a little while at night and get something new for the shop done at the same time.
Well spring is right around the corner so hoping things warm up in your corner and we get some much needed warm weather.
See you next month with our first quarter donation and some new items in the works :)
