Hello! My name is Skye and I live with my Mum. This is not a sob story, but my Dad passed away when I was 13, so now that I am older I would love to be able to help my Mum out with some finances since my Dad’s job provided the main household income. So, I am requesting £1,000 to purchase one or two 25kg bales of vintage clothes from Vintage Wholesale UK.
With these bales, depending on exactly how many items of clothing are in them, I will sell them on at individual prices from a boutique, which I am confident will be successful! In the attached photo are the wooden clothing hangers, which I will hang the vintage clothes on and take photos of them to sell. The boutique will be mainly online and will be managed via Instagram and Facebook. I also believe that running a small business of my own for a while will be great experience that I can put on my CV for later life!
I would be running this boutique alongside studying A levels, so a little extra money would help fund my student finances too; and if it is triumphant (which I’m sure it will be!) It would be a great little business to get me through university without having a lot of money worries.
I have mentioned this idea to my Mum and my friends, and they have all been supportive, which only made me want to go through with it even more! I know this is only a small idea, but I am genuinely excited to see how it will turn out – and I know that I will enjoy doing it!
By donating, you will be helping me, a young person, to focus on my aspirations and become more independent, as well as enriching my lifestyle.
Finally, if you would like, you will be able to see what this money will enable me to do via Instagram! My handle is @s.kyeparker and if/when I start my boutique I will make a business account for it, which you will be able to follow and watch it’s progress. The only thing I have left to think about is a name for my boutique!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my request, I really appreciate it. Here is my paypal link, I hope you consider me!
