I visited a friend’s house the other day to catch up and talk about our business plans. She has started selling fruits and vegetables in this little corner of a commercial building. She mentioned wanting to get a decent stall. I was really interested in partnering with her when she brought it up, so I decided to give her a visit.
We have laid both our plans, agreed on most parts, and compromised on the others. Because I have an unused stockroom, we agreed that we’ll use it as the storage space for our business. In turn, I get to keep the crates and boxes of our products.
I initially found my stockroom messy when I saw boxes and crates piling up. Thankfully, my husband has carpentry skills so he decided to make a bench out of the crates. It was such perfect timing because we were about to join our first ever Weekend Market. I can’t believe we were able to convert what we refer to as ‘mess’ into something really, really useful.
