Have you ever thrown an event, party, etc & the moment before you press send you have this thought:
What if no one comes?
You may remember that I was planning on hosting a celebration during Down Syndrome Awareness Day back in March. We had a little snafu with scheduling with the venue & I took the easy way out and cancelled instead of rescheduling.
I chickened out.
Granted, there was certainly an extra level of vulnerability baked into that specific event being so close to my heart, but that’s the truth of it.
I got scared that no one would come.
The day of the event I had so many local Austin folks saying they couldn’t find the link to the details & they were excited to show up.
I definitely spiraled in my mind feeling bad about the way it ended up & how I handled it.
But not this time.
I have a really big business announcement to make & I want to celebrate it with YOU - because I couldn't have done it without this community’s continued support.
When I’ve shared the news with my family & a few close friends, the general reaction has been:
I’ve been working on this for almost a year & I’m really proud of this next step for Purse & Clutch.
Local Austin friends - I’m asking you to come celebrate with me.
I’ve invited some of my favorite Austin brands to join us so you can shop other values-based brands while you enjoy a delicious beverage.
The first 10 to arrive will get a super fun swag bag that may or may not include a 50% off coupon for any item, including the new Mexico restocks that just arrived. (Spoiler alert - it does!)
For those not local to Austin, I’ll be making the big announcement online on Sunday evening - so be sure to tune in on Instagram.
