January sure was a long month, and now, I have a feeling, February is going to fly by. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, about myself, about Seaglass and about being a business owner. As the months and years go by and complacency starts to set in, you can’t help but wonder…”what’s next?” In 2019 we had a big addition to the Market, it was spur of the moment and we jumped in, and, I am thrilled to say, we have no regrets. 2020 had another big change for us as we did a 180 and turned our space into a sweet little coffee shop, once again, no regrets! Life is good right?!?! WELLLLLLLLL, I have had on my mind for over a year that I (me, Kelli Benton, not the owner of Seaglass) would love to have a Blog, a real one, not one that pertains to our Market, one that talks to “my people.” One that speaks to middle aged women about being, well, middle aged. Menopause, gray hair, marriage, empty nesting, grandchildren, shopping your age (and your weight), living, laughing and loving. You know, ALL. THE. THINGS.

I am a big fan of Podcasts, and they all tend to be about growing your business, putting yourself out there, what to do and what NOT to do. I love learning from strong, female, entrepreneurs and then sharing what I have learned with other small business owners. I have a ton of ideas of what I want this Blog to become, I may have to readjust and reset more than once to get it flowing the way I want, and the one thing I have learned is, THAT’S OK! I’m looking forward to growing and facing my fears and finding my way. I hope you’ll be good with joining me on this journey.

I need to find a name for my new endeavor, as it’s not Seaglass that I’ll be writing about, although I am sure every now and then it will find it’s way in there, as it’s a big part of my life currently! Two suggestions were “Kelli’s Chaos” and “Coffee & Chaos,” what are the chances two different people associate me with chaos?!!

As I refocus and move forward in planning a new format I am kinda excited to hear your thoughts, and maybe some suggestions as to what you’d like to hear about and, since I’d like it to be interactive, what you’d like to talk about.

I think I’ll be posting once a week, probably on Monday, as I feel it will be a fun way to start the week…but who knows, I might change my mind on that too!

Kelli : )

My name is Kelli, I live in Leland, NC and I own Seaglass Salvage Market, a once a month indoor/outdoor Meet the Maker Market. On the third weekend of each month you will find artists, artisans and entrepreneurs selling handmade, homemade, resale and retail items out of our two warehouses. We also have food trucks each day of Market, as well as outdoor vendors and outdoor seating (weather permitting). We are open, rain or shine, the **3rd Weekend** of every month! Friday, Saturday and Sun 9:00-3:00 and can be found at 1987 Andrew Jackson Hwy in Leland, NC. Once a month, every month, all year round!
