As the deadline for the next Girlboss Foundation grant approaches (June 30th!), we check in with our last recipient, Bekah Bolen, who is using the funds to build a mobile boutique for her cards and many more items. Here’s what Bekah had to say about the progress on her shop for Cat Call Collective:
Bekah here—just checking in with some updates! The Cat Call Tiny Shop is making progress! We’ve started on the build out, but we’ve had a few delays as we’ve been carefully watching the budget and waiting for the right time to buy certain components when they’re at their most budget-friendly. Happy to say we just got our 4 commercial glass doors this week after much waiting and price haggling on Craigslist, ha! They are now at a repair shop to be custom framed- the grand total cost will be around $1200 for these 4 together (retail they are about $1200 a piece!!). Here’s a pic below, before repairs:
And here’s an image of us securing in the base framing for our structure to the metal trailer base:
We also secured salvage marble for FREE to do all the counter tops for the shop!! Super excited about that. I put together some inspiration/ mood board content for the shop build out that I’ll be sharing on the blog soon, but here’s a sneak peek:
And below are a handful of the items we’ve already got on order for the shop!
