Big changes ahead for me in the new year – I’ve decided to leave my teaching career behind and start up my own small business – Ukiyo Store.
Ukiyo Store is a collection of carefully curated fashion, home-wares, artefacts and more from across the globe….
The emphasis is on ‘slow’ fashion, ethical and artisan brands (where possible) for men and women. This also applies to many of the homewares, jewellery and accessories that will be in-Store too. As such, many items stocked will be one-offs or short run – so once they are gone that’s it!
Ukiyo means floating world, living in the moment; detached from the bothers of life – and I think it is rather apt for this next stage of my life. And, as you can probably tell, the store will definitely have a Japanese aesthetic to it too… For those of you love Japanese wares you will find both vintage, modern and Japanese influenced goods in store too.
I’m currently developing an on-line store and I have just started a Ukiyo Store Facebook Page too so please get behind me and share the links. I’m also lucky to have a wonderful upstairs room that is going to be dedicated to workshops, tastings, gallery exhibitions and other fun events and you will be able to find out about these by the social media links, web-page or by coming in to the store and registering your interest.
I think Iced Vovo will probably be taking a back seat next year but I promise to have all kinds of posts and tidbits on my blog page via Ukiyo Store so be sure to follow or subscribe.
I want to take this moment to thank you all for supporting Iced Vovo and I hope the festive season is kind to you all.
Please spread the word and be sure to pop in. You’ll find Ukiyo Store at 1/221 Liverpool Street, Hobart, Tasmania. The Store will be up and running from the 1st February 2017.
