September 2012 
The Olympics and Paralympics have just drawn to a close, so now we can take a breath and revisit reality. The time has been uplifting to the nation and we can all share in the sense of pride that has abounded these wonderful Games. The wonder, the awe, the sacrifice, the heartache, the humility…. clearly apparent in all participants…let’s hope the feel good factor remains in these challenging times! 
I opened my boutique 3 months ago and am very pleased to have taken the plunge. Its success to me is not measured by the shrieking of the cash register, but by the comments of the clientele. They have been positive and I feel I have struck the right chord with all those who cross the threshold. 
The challenge is not to stand still but to keep moving forward. The ‘Dejanira’ line of reworked retro clothing has been highly successful. It offers that uniqueness that I aspire to and am pleased that customers feel the same. I shall endeavour to expand what is available. 
The website of ‘Bohemian Finds’ is no longer an online business, as you will know. This decision was a tough one, but I moved it to the ASOS Market Place as this was more manageable with the boutique. ASOS is updated monthly, but there is always more in the shop…. so pay a visit if you can. 
Love it or hate it...the grunge look is here to stay 
Bohemian Finds has also moved to become part of the local community project ‘Discover Northampton’. This project sees artwork and photographs displayed in town businesses throughout the town centre creating an Artist Trail. Steve Addo’s work is on show in our Market Walk boutique. As a follow up to this there is BID Businesses Exhibition and Fashion Show on October 1st at Royal & Derngate Theatre. 
 
Similarly there is a VIP DAY which we are supporting, on Thurs 20th September. This sees us join up with 4 local businesses offering photo portraiture, colour analysis session, Head and shoulder massage, corset fitting, hair and make up demonstration and a range of clothes to view from us at Bohemian Finds. There is a prize draw too! It is £5 per head with all profits going to Cynthia Spencer Hospice. 
 
I am pleased that Bohemian Finds is able to support these local enterprises and help raise its profile in very challenging times.
