For my July 2018 Blog Post I wanted to share what has been happening with Kitty Katrina since my last post in December, 2017 - yikes, it's been a while!
Viva Las Vegas!
After many years of careful thought and planning, our team decided that moving Kitty Katrina to Las Vegas, Nevada would be the best for our small business.
Part of the reason we decided to make this move is because Las Vegas is a key area to be located in Nevada for people who are involved in fashion and costuming, which we are :)
However, the move was not easy and required lots of planning. It took at least three years of looking for a new, great space / location, not to mention, putting our business on "hold" for over two months while we moved all of our equipment and supplies to our new spot.
Putting our business on hold for this time meant we were not receiving orders nor producing new items and when you're not working / producing for nearly 2 months - this can be painful for any business in many ways.
Our team chose to view this as "growing pains" because we knew this difficult move was necessary in order to further grow Kitty Katrina in an area that would support our business.
Getting Started Again
Once we re-opened KittyKatrina.com in May, 2018, it was almost like starting our business all over again! We needed to build-up views / sales again but also start to get involved in our new community of Las Vegas.
This process is slow and will take several more months to accomplish, but in the end, we are excited to explore all of the wonderful possibilities and opportunities in our new home and meet new creators in our area!
We also used this new beginning as an opportunity to freshen-up our online Shop and create new collections, which we are excited to introduce later this month. We have a whole NEW collection of festival hair accessories and headpieces that we will release, so stay tuned!
Also, July 15th will be Kitty Katrina's 5th Birthday and we are celebrating in these EXTRA awesome ways...
