We started with a different name in 2016. We were known as "Special Events Resale" until early summer. We didn't think the name quite fit what we were hoping to do as a business so we decided a complete rebranding of our business was needed. We changed the name to FancyFlip Events and had a new look and logo designed and started to make big plans for the new business. We did a total of 12 wedding resales in that first year. Our focus was on our home state of Ohio, but we also did 2 sales in Ft Wayne, IN. Since our relaunch we have streamlined the ticket sales for buyers and added a website to make reserving a booth for sellers much easier. We also expanded our social media reach into Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and Pinterest, in addition to our Facebook page.
As we enter 2017 we are hitting the road and plan to host 22 events in 9 cities. FancyFlip is the "go-to" resource for brides from the moment they are engaged, through the wedding planning, all the way until they sell all the great items they used at their wedding. However, the goal for us is to not only help engaged and newlywed couples, but to benefit the cities we are in as well. Community is a big deal for both of us and we hope to enrich every community we go to by also promoting their local commerce. Lots of brides travel to attend several of our sales before their wedding. Each city we go to has so much to see and do that we hope our shoppers take advantage of their visit to the area. Stay tuned to see what new offers develop over the next year!
On a personal note - Leah and I don't make New Year's resolutions. Instead we assign each year a motto. This year our motto is a quote from the great inspirational speaker, Jim Rohn. "Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don't wish things were easier, wish you were better." Each time we hit those pot holes in life, and in business, we will look to this phrase and get inspired. FancyFlip is not just something we do on the side, or a prject we work on from time to time. It is our full-time jobs and our future. We will work hard all year to be a major resource to help with weddings in many ways.
Today's crystal ball is tomorrow's mirror. We wish you all a happy, healthy, and successful New Year! Make 2017 your best!
