I Launched My Store! – shopsayonara.com

If you have been following me for a few months you have probably heard me talk about my online store. I have been setting it up since September 2017. It has taken a little longer than expected to get everything to a point where I feel happy to open the store. Last weekend I decided to launch the store. So far, I have received really good feedback and have processed a load of orders already. This is the first chance I have had to write a detailed post, explaining the meaning behind the brand.

Why Sayonara?

At the time of setting up the store and starting to think about my brand, I had recently left a job that I was really unhappy in and the future was completely unknown. Sayonara is all about having the courage to push yourself forward into the unknown and taking risks. Ultimately, If I had never left my job, I wouldn’t have opened the store, I wouldn’t have found the job I am in now and I would have continued to feel miserable.

Change can be really scary but you can end up in such a better place than you were before. If there is something you want to achieve or a change you want to make, take the risk. Life is short, you won’t always have time and there will never be a good moment to do it, you have to jump in. I want my brand to inspire people to take that first step and help them along the way.

Having studied business at College and University, being able to launch this store has been one of my goals for quite some time. Most of all, it was just to prove to myself that I could do it. I have really enjoyed the process so far. If you are looking to do something similar and need some help, feel free to reach out to me.



What products do I have?

I currently have available: Mugs, Notebooks, Trinket Dishes, Iphone X Cases & S8 Cases. There are limited quantities, if you like something, order it now. I will try to restock items that sell out but this may not be possible with some lines. I have a vision for where I would like the brand to go in future and already have products that will be available soon!

As I didn’t write this post in time for the launch, I have created a new discount code. I have received such lovely support on this whole journey, so would like to give a little something back to you. If you place an order and want to be featured on Sayonara social media, please send me a picture: hayley.martin@shopsayonara.com

    Just ordered a couple of items today and cannot wait to receive them! I was going to order more but I don’t know what phone I will be getting yet and thought I would wait until more items are added! Congratulations Hayley – the products look amazing and cannot wait to use my notebook for storing blog and Instagram ideas! xxx
