RUN DON'T WALK #acainthebay #bestvintageunderoneroof #gypsyhunter

Yesterday concluded an 8 day journey on the road and of course I did a lot of thinking while pushing through the southwestern deserts and Texan hill country. A lot of my experience has only cemented what many of us already know- it is not easy to maneuver as a woman amongst men, let alone solo. We need to always think farther ahead and protect ourselves in a world full of sharks. I hope for these nuggets to be encouraging, commiserating, and possibly empowering. I believe that women are powerful and that we should champion each other especially in fields where men do most of the shotcalling. It's tough out there for a #girlboss! Here's just a little of what I've learned along the way.
1. There will be times when your womanhood is objectified in a professional setting. Stand up for yourself and commandeer the respect back, no matter how much money stands to be lost.
2. Most days, 98% of the people I deal with in work are men from all over the world- many of whom are the kings of their castle. This means EGOs are huge and often unbridled. Do not get caught up in a man's ego. Remember- insecurity screams while power whispers.
3. Do not shit where you eat.
4. Build up a strong support network of true and loyal girlfriends and even an older female mentor.
5. Don't allow yourself to become overly emotional or play into mindfuck games others play. Be sharp, don't ever play the victim and let your work do the talking for you.
6. Accept the fact that other women will not like you.
7. Accept the fact that some men will not like you hanging in the boys club.
8. Walk the hell away from anyone who does not respect you... Many places in this world are still extremely misogynistic but it does not mean that because it's culturally tolerable that you should tolerate it.
9. Make your own money. Don't get swept up in a man's display of wealth- you are capable of holding your own.
10. Never hesitate to speak your mind, firmly but always gracefully.
11. You, as a woman, are equally capable to swing for the fences and make huge deals as anyone!

Go get em ladies!

Happy Friday, yall! Here's a little sneak peek of what's coming to the shop soon! The story behind these bad boys is that a trading post that opened in 1916 will be closing it's doors in February for it's 100 years in operation- and these all came up from the basement as deadstock from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. They were all made in the trading post over the decades and they've all got unique variances. I've never had the privilege of cherry picking through such a large pile of NOS (there were tens of thousands of pieces!) I took away tons and I'll be putting them up for sale soon! Stay tuned! Or email me for dibs! πŸ˜‰ #deadstock #tradingpost #gypsyhunter

Every day the sun comes up is a day to start new! Been a while since I've felt the jitters of doing something completely unfamiliar but everyday behind the wheel has taught me a couple things. Here's what I've put under my hat thus far:
1. Keep your head down and work like you mean it.
2. People who kick up dust and take time out of their day to throw mud are only taking time away from their own work.
3. Be transparent about your business, but don't show your ass.
4. Your work bench should know you better than anyone.
5. If something or someone doesn't feel right, get the hell away.
6. It's not a favor if money is on the table.
7. Try not to take shit personally- there are a lot of scared people out there who can't help but go on the defense when they feel threatened.
8. Implement boundaries. Take time to live as a person and not as a persona.
9. Work smarter, not harder- a little grease on the wheels never hurts. Pay your vendors well and everyone eats well.
10. Be flexible and take your damn ego out of the picture- a lot of people hold on for dear life to a way that no longer works.
11. The only rules I sign up for are my own.
12. If you get a pot of gold by being unscrupulous, you'll have to maintain that pot of gold in the same manner.
13. You don't have to act like a man to play in a man's game, but you do have to think ahead.
14. Don't write a check that your ass can't cash.
15. All money ain't good money.
16. People hate when someone does well because they are insecure. Do good work and be secure. Partner with other secure people.
17. Visualize and focus on the big picture.
18. Bottle up every little bit of inspiration, there will be times when you're tapped and need those reserves.
19. Believe, with every fiber of your being, that you will get everything you want. And then get to work.
20. Live well, eat well, buy well, pay well, be well.
And with that, I'm signin off for a bit. There's some silver to make and some roads to be traveled and some sunsets to catch ✌🏼 #gypsyhunter #sayonara
