Norah first came to SBDC in October 2021. She had a dream of opening a second hand and consignment shop in the tourist town of Twain Harte. Her goal was to get the business set up right to help her grow and sustain it over time.
Norah and our business advisor, Rhonda Lowe went through all of the steps of start-up from creating a business plan, determining start-up costs, site selection, marketing, budgets and projections. Rhonda also spent time helping Norah understand the intricacies of running a consignment shop. Norah worked hard on getting all of her action steps done, while working at another job.
Norah secured her location in January 2022 and opened for business on March 11, 2022. Her shop is adorable and filled with the most amazing variety of items. There is definitely something for everyone!
