Eye Candy and An Awesome Gal

Good morning friends.  I am so excited to introduce my guest today.  I met Meghan last year at a festival when I was drawn into the cutest little shop I had ever seen, the Go Girl Shoppe.   Seriously, this girl knows what I like! You may recognize the name because I have featured her products here and here.  Today I wanted for you to actually get to know her a little.  She is so sweet and fun to talk to.
Meet Meghan!
(me) When and how did you get started?
(Meghan) Anthony and I have been running and operating the go girl shoppe for about 2.5 years now.  It’s actually a funny story!  I always wanted to own my own business, however I was working a corporate job and didn’t have all the time to commit to it and  it was when the economy started to become real rocky.  I couldn’t sleep one night and all I could think about was how cool it would be to have a store inside a little camper.  I thought I was crazy because of the lack of sleep.  I had never seen it done and everyone was doing food trucks in well… Old bread trucks. I was also concerned about what my parents would say!!  I jokingly told my boyfriend (now husband) and he laughed but didn’t think I was serious.  Well… Guess what!!!  I was serious.  The go girl shoppe was born!!  I thought the name go girl was fitting because we are always on the go and people are always yelling out to me “you go girl”!!
(me)How do you decide what products to sell, do you make any of them yourself?

(Meghan)  It is very hard sometimes to decide what to put in the shop.  You never know if people are going to like something or want to buy it.  To be honest I try to choose items that I think I would want to buy or want.  Why try to sell something to someone if you yourself aren’t passionate about it!  The majority of the items I own myself unless of course it is a one of a kind item!!

gogirlshoppejewelry(me) What is your favorite part of the business?

(Meghan) I love seeing people’s reactions to the shop.  I love greeting everyone and talking to them.  I have met some of the nicest people while doing this.  

gogirlshoppeclothes(me) How many hours a week goes into the business?

(Meghan) I spend a lot of hours working on the shop.  A lot of people don’t know how much work really goes into this.  I myself thought being self-employed meant lots of vacations but I eat sleep and breathe go girl.  It is not for the weak but I love it all!!
 gogirlshoppejewelry2(me) What are your favorite interests/hobbies?

(Meghan) I love going to flea markets!  There is something about finding that item out there for a great bargain.  You never know what you will find.  It’s always like a treasure hunt and you need to be the first person there to get it!!


(me) What is the funniest thing that has happened to you during a festival?

(Meghan) A woman thought we were part of the junk gypsy!  I laughed and took it as a compliment.  I love those girls but I got a long way to go!!!

Meghan’s business is based out of East North Carolina so make sure you look for her at festivals!  You can also find her goodies on her facebook page and her website, the GO GIRL SHOPPE.
(This was NOT a sponsored post, I did not get paid or compensated for this.  I just adore Meghan and her shoppe!)
