Grand Opening-Vintage Retreauxgirl on Etsy!

VintageRetreauxgirl's New Avatar!! Ain't she sweet!!?

Earlier this week I decided to open a new Etsy shop after thinking about it for weeks...........So once my mind was made up I needed to come up with a name. I really wanted to keep the "brand" Retreauxgirl going forward and i tried several names and even asked people to help me out on Facebook and this blog.

The majority of friends and family liked "Retreaux A Go Go" alot, and I really liked it too, it was fun!  I was all prepared to go with that name and then when I went to Etsy,  to register it I realized that your shop name is a user name, which means it is written as all one word, so Retreaux A Go Go would look like retreauxagogo, and I did'nt like the way it looked. I even tried some caps  RetreauxAGoGo. So I went with my second choice.............

VintageRetreauxgirl says it all. It is an extention of my repurposed jewelry and it speaks to the vintage world. My wise sister Angie suggested this name because of the Google Search Engine and IMO, which is important when people are searching randomly on the internet and not just on Etsy.  If you search the word "Retreauxgirl" it's all me!! and I love that!!  If you search "retreaux" its some band from Louisiana.

So I registered the name, set up my shop appearance, shipping guidelines, pay pal, shop policies......etc, which took all day and then I began posting, and posting and posting and I am still posting.  Posting apparel is much different than jewelry and it will take a little longer until I get the hang of it........................

Thank you for checking in and keep checking back,
