I Need your Help

5/12/2015 Estreitta 0 Comments

I am not sure if you are aware that I started a Vintage resale business in October 2013 called Starlite Vintiqs. We have two locations one in Hurst, Texas and the most recent addition in Arlington, Texas both are inside local antique malls.  It's been a fun and rewarding experience and Erik and I have met so many interesting people and have made several great friends along the way.

On Sunday, I entered the Wells Fargo Works Project contest for Starlite Vintiqs.  Monday my entry was accepted. If I win my company will receive $25K and an industry mentor to help me grow and expand my business.  I wrote an essay of 600 Words about my business and what I would do with the money if I receive it, then was asked to upload a Picture that best displays my business. 

Here is an excerpt of the essay:

It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to be a reseller of antique and vintage items. I have had a deep appreciation and love for those things since I was a little girl. On the weekends, my parents would cart me and my little brother around to flea markets and antique malls all over Texas. Mesmerized by the menagerie of antiques I saw, my love for historical items came alive.  
With my husband’s help in June 2013, we decided to open a vintage resale business named Starlite Vintiqs. My first booth opened in October 2013 inside a local antique mall in Hurst, Texas. My primary mission is to provide unique, vintage items from the 40’s – 60’s at an affordable cost. I believe everyone, regardless of financial status, who has an appreciation for antiques should have the opportunity to purchase them.

You can read the full essay about Starlite Vintiqs on the Wells Fargo View Entries Site at http://j.mp/WFWSV7244 

One of the main elements of the contest is also getting people to Vote for my Entry.  Your Vote will add points to my overall score once the Judges have reviewed and scored my entry.  If you could take a moment and vote for me,  I would greatly appreciate it! You can access the site by clicking this link: http://j.mp/WFWSV7244 

I would also like to note that a person may vote once per Entry per day through 07/19/15, so if you can vote daily that would be AWESOME!  Also If you want to pass this message along to others please do. 

I am really excited about this opportunity and would be immensely grateful for your help.
