W Gathering & W店

W gathering invite一出,聽説24小時已滿額,但陸陸續續不斷有讀者説收不到回覆,今早親自查看,發現負責的人並不是由第一個登記處理,而是由星期一收到的電郵開始,追問爲何,「系統故障」。幾經斡旋,17日和18日來郵的朋友今天會收到通知,現在每場比原定多了30多人,可能會迫,希望大家不要介意,最好自己帶樽水。
我跟自己説,既然交給別人做,就要放手,如今搞出大頭佛,想想如何補救是考驗,也爲下一次如何delegate分工和跟進QC作了警惕,到底也是得著。

拖了三年的事,終於在明天上踏出第三步。Winifredshop.com於2011年2月底正式開過一次,當時只賣兩樣東西,就是新書《天空之鏡》和因新書而做的Winifred x Jas M.B.的crossover手袋,賣書成績不錯,在郵寄包裝上出了點問題、但很快更正,(現有6個新書套好靚仔,如果你手上《天空之鏡》的書套皺了或因潮濕而走了樣,明天請來取新書套)。手袋則未放上網已賣得八八九九,但陰差陽錯,網店的技術存在著很多問題,所以同一時間有三個人買了同一個最後的手袋,而因此展開了往後四次的pre-order。我覺得人算往往不如天算的漂亮美妙。

因為網店和博客的技術拍檔幫忙很有限,而我自己的時間亦很緊張, 2011年基本上是沒無法relaunch這個online shop。開店的宗旨很簡單,就是環保地分發我的東西,無論是我create的、design的,或我pre-own的和喜歡的;我有豐盛的物質生活,但一個人其實一瓢飲一簞食,吃得幾多,穿得幾多,所謂一條草一滴露水,(天生天養,一切都是自己帶來);一個人用去地球太多資源是不平衡的,而且打理它們弄去很多地方、精力和時間。從前有相熟的二手衫上門來收,但這些小妹妹十年八年後都做了歸家娘或別人的媽媽,我亦跟其他二手店的人的頻率(vibration)差得太遠,扯不上;從前也有放eBay,但eBay已變成一個因假貨太多,央及池魚,一上載名牌就會被人釘,非常麻煩,被迫放棄。

終於在今年遇上合拍的幫手,我要在這裏多謝Steve Mok這位90後,我們還未見過面,但他一手替我起店和解決問題,十分感激,幫我踏出這一步,但我仲未上載貨品,但一定會在8月結束前開始運作,請耐心等候。

穿過一次用來出鏡或或出席公眾場合的衣服,送人不是問題,但送誰?家人也用不著,只穿一次就扔丟太過浪費。然後因爲可以跟設計師直接訂衣服,比店裡便宜,又沒有機會試上身,所以大手筆,一箱箱的訂,總有合身的吧,那麼其餘不合身又如何呢?很多時只憑模特兒的照片或線圖下決定,所以即使衣服回來了很漂亮,但跟照片或線圖所引發的想像有出入或尺碼不合,所以網店是分brand new和pre-own,而pre-own又分未穿過、只穿過一穿、或穿多過一次的。

很多跟隨我多的讀者,念念不忘十多年前在灣仔搬屋前的clearance sale,那亦成為了《時裝時刻》的其中一個章節,當時不只賣衣服,時裝雜誌更是免費任取任攜,你能拿多少就是你的,很有一點遊戲節目的況味,甚至茶几、圓凳,也是50、100塊的交易,昂貴的art-book,也是廿元就讓人抬走。今次在網上可以慢慢賣,不用心急。但基於W gathering星期六舉行,詳細情況我一直未有時間公佈,因為一直在拍product shots,手都痺了,除了衣服之外,還有書本、DVD、USB、護腰練習板、essential oils、化妝品、香水、美容科技產品……不能告訴你有多少,因為還未盤點,很多東西還未mark價,blog 的照片只是冰山一角,但一切順其自然和隨緣吧,如果你有時間看到,想來就來吧,我12pm至5:30pm都在,也許能談上一兩句呢!

  • 謝謝你的點名讚賞,對我實是鼓舞,另外雖然我有90後的魄力,實際我已是一個80後了

  • Jerome

    Winifred I must say I was disappointed at the reply I got from your staff. I applied minuntes after you posted about the gathering and didn’t hear back until yesterday when I chased. It’s not professional but glad you told truth behind what went wrong. I will still drop by your shop tomorrow to see what goodies are available. I’m also happy to help you organise gatherings next time. Cheers.

  • Connie Li

  • No. Never heard of and never write for都市日報? Did you see my articles there?

  • The gratitude is mutual, thanks for sharing that saturday afternoon with me!

  • The oils are coming soon, Stay tuned!

  • Leo ( now Dawn) got them for the wrong price $20 x 4 instead of $130! He said he would share with you! These 4 DVDs have the best Fred+Ginger dance sequence. I bought these french version when Hollywood still hasn’t print the official DVD. After Hollywood version came out , I have 2 sets! Only need to keep one. Enjoy!

  • Yes, online shop coming soon. Stay tuned
