Sophie began Seasons Green 7 years ago and as she says, it all began by accident. Moving to a different part of the country and leaving her old business behind meant that she seized the opportunity to create a new business from her love of the coast and country.
You can listen to it right here on my website or head over to Spotify or iTunes.
Sophie turned the lock down into an opportunity by creating her online shop. She had already started with setting it up but never quite had the time to focus on it. So, with time on her hands when her bricks and mortar shop closed for the pandemic she decided it was time to finally get it done and get it out into the world.
The business has grown and developed steadily over the 7 years. Sophie says the business journey has felt comfortable and natural, which has meant it has been very rewarding. We can all learn a lot from her attitude to business growth.
Early on Sophie was given the advice to buy only the things that she thought people would buy. But Sophie chose to ignore this and buy things she loved and would buy herself. This has definitely paid off and given her the uniqueness she was striving for.
One other important thing about Seasons Green, it is not only an independent shop but it also sells 100s of products from British designers and makers. This way of supporting other small business is so important for us all.
I love how Sophie describes the area she lives in, it sounds like a beautiful place to visit and I really must go.
This is such an inspiring interview, Sophie has shared so much about her business journey and her product range sounds amazing. I am sure you will love it as much as I do.
Sophie is on my shopping directory, you can find the Seasons Green shop page here.
I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I loved creating it. Be great if you could do any or all of these: share it, follow it, subscribe to it, rate it or whatever else you can do to get this podcast out into the world. Everything helps to fly the shop independent flag.
Until next time, thanks for listening to The Shop Independent Show.
