A change of plan!

If you happened to read my recent post Flower power then you'll be aware I'm all set to become a florist! Well there's been a slight change of plan, after realising how much work and knowledge of the subject floristry entails we have now decided it might be best to open the shop my husband is leasing as wait for it.......A fancy dress shop!

I know, couldn't be further away from a shop full of flowers but it's a lot less pressure and depending on how well the shop does we can look into the florist idea at a later date once we are all set up. The shop has a massive upstairs which would be ideal for us to move the fancy dress to and we can use the downstairs as a home ware/florists.

So has anybody any ideas on names for the shop?? I'm wracking my brains for something not too tacky and original, let me know if you come up with anything!

  4. Well that is definitely a change, not sure of a name though, but you could also offer Party Bags etc!! I do have to say it makes me think of Mr Ben, so Mr Ben's Emporium - which kind of covers everything.

  5. Now that sounds a much better idea and a lot more fun. Perhaps get a dictionary and start brainstorming, or post the question on twitter. I'm sure you'd get a good response.

  12. That sounds exciting! Good luck on your new venture. We're at the very early stage of a new venture as well. Not sure if its going to come to anything yet but its an exciting time.
    Have got an award for you over at mine, just noticed you've had one before so hope you don't mind another one. Don't be offended by the title!

  13. Sounds fun. If your name is Nancy, you could open "Fancy Nancy". Otherwise, I like "Fancy That?" as a suggestion. Or how about "Up to the Nines"?
