Today was a beautiful day! Being at the markets regularly again was kind of a scary thing to commit to, but I am so happy that we jumped back into the swing of things. Being able to communicate, interact and spread happiness among people is something I love to do, and this allows me to do so on a continuous basis!
It is also the time of year that is perfect in regards to temperatures and weather. In regards to timing to get back into a rhythm, I couldn’t ask for a better timeframe. It will allow me to acclimate back into the hotter months without suffering by beginning again in May!
I recently committed myself to 5+ markets a month! Every first, second and fourth Sunday, we will be attending the Arbor Park Pop Up Market from 11AM-5PM at 17700 San Pedro Avenue. Every second Saturday I have committed to the Garden Ridge Market from 9AM-3PM at 19185 FM 2252 in Garden Ridge. Then we also have the Schertz Market every third Saturday from 9AM-3PM at 816 Main Street in Schertz. We are looking to squeeze in a few more if our time line allows, and we are eager to see all our regulars be out and about again.
On top of attending markets, we are also finding a new balance between cooking, shipping, packaging, and planning. This in stride with family life is epically succeeding and everyone is learning to work around each other! Between virtual learning for kiddos, virtual work for my husband, and virtual meetings with new possible clients or me, we are accomplishing dreams and making them reality faster than we ever anticipated.
We are also thinking about adding flash sales, new discounts/promos, and even a surprise flavor every now and then. We aim to keep ourselves busy with new projects so that our customer base stays intrigued and ever present. The creativity that is involved with this business and these ideas is one that keeps me on my toes and constantly aware of new trends within our community.
As we move forward and progress continuously makes itself known to us, we can’t help but feel humbled in knowing that we have succeeded only because our customer base trusts us and communicates with us on an enormous level. We understand that we are able to carry on because you allow us to. We remember that it isn’t only us that work towards the success of Lone Star Pure, but our customers do also! So, thank you! You all are absolutely amazing!
