Going through some of their other lovely stuff has also reinforced my need to get sewing again and build up some skills so that I can go back and buy some of their lovely silks, for example, to make clothes.
As it is, I have some wonderful cottons to work with for bags and for table linens. Enough, in fact, that I'm looking around as we speak for some basic accounting tools in order to take the next step toward starting a little product line for sale on Etsy.
I know myself well enough to know that I need to start keeping books from the get-go, even if the whole thing fizzles. Otherwise, I may wind up in a mess of receipts and papers and no clue what is going on.
I also need to figure out a few other "business-y" things - like tax stuff. Groan. Anyone with any resources to share, I will be immensely grateful.
I am now exhausted, though, and probably need to stop with the thinky stuff for now before I get thoroughly confused and frustrated.
