GIVEAWAY: Ji Ji Kiki Boutique10:03 PM
Also, recieved a special package in the mail from Ji Ji Kiki, and I just adore the 'Petit Lapin' necklace sent to me as a birthday present!
More pics of this outfit and day, maybe in the next post!
Emma, who runs Ji Ji Kiki, has agreed to answer a few questions about her business and herself too.
Let's start with an introduction to what Ji Ji Kiki is?
Ji Ji Kiki is an online boutique with a vintage, kitsch and kawaii touch. We sell jewellery, accessories and clothing from a selection of independent designers from around the world.
Emma, now tell me a bit about yourself and what inspires you.
I've always wanted to run my own business and whilst at uni I sold vintage jewellery and accessories on eBay. I loved it and did quite well from it (it kept me in gig tickets!) so when I left uni I decided to carry on.
I did a couple of temp jobs when I left uni, but as the business started getting busier I decided to take the plunge, setting up a website and running Ji Ji Kiki full time-luckily its paid off. It can be a lot of hard work and sometimes when I'm packaging orders or making jewellery at 2 o'clock in the morning I wonder if I'm mad but then I think of my friends having to sit in rush hour traffic everyday...which makes me feel better ;)
Where do you want to see Ji Ji Kiki Boutique in 5 years' time?
I'd love to keep building and expanding the number of indie designers we stock, to be the place to go if you want something quirky and unique. We've only been stocking clothes for the last couple of months, so that is definitely something we'll be expanding too.
I love getting our customers involved in the site and getting their feedback on our Facebook page and through emails. I think the interaction between online shops and customers is so important as you don't have the face-to-face interaction you would with a bricks and mortar shop.
