As military families we know the need to be economical! Not only is money an issue many times but keeping things, just to keep them is rarley an option with a family PCS occuring every two to five years. Consignment shops are a great option for both of these areas! I'm pleased to introduce Leah Abbey, an Army Spouse who owns a maternity consignment shop near Fort Lee, Virginia:
Your Name: Leah Abbey
Your Company Name: The 10th Month
Quick description of your business: Sell, buy and take consignments on Maternity Clothing
What is the best way to reach you?: Email, firstname.lastname@example.org
What Branch of Service did your spouse serve in: US Army
What did you most enjoy about the military lifestyle and why? I loved the travel, we would not have seen much of the world if we were not in the Military.
What lesson as a military-spouse have you gained that has helped you in the business-world? You never say good-bye. You will meet the same wonderful people over and over.
What do you most enjoy about your line of work now? Contact with other women.
How does your company support the military family? We give 10% off to all Military and Dependants and offer to put Military Maternity clothing on display for consignment.
If you could send a message of encouragement to all of our military spouses what would you tell them? That is so difficult because we are each in a different situation. In short, "We love you as much as we do your spouses"
Any last thoughts to share? "Be bold and mighty things will happen."
