Small Business Shout-out #2
This second shout-out goes to another amazing young woman I train with and is such a lovely person that I think deserves so much recognition not only for her amazing new business but for every inch of hard work and effort she puts into everything she does! Please go support her!
- Introduce yourself and your business.
Hi! My name is Gina and I’m a dance student at Addict Dance Academy! Before Covid, I worked three jobs in order to come to ADA and to have enough money to save. Unfortunately, Covid meant that two of those three jobs came to a close. Panicking and stressed, I knew I had to find another way of bringing in income… I had always wanted to start my own business, but doing what? I research different options for around a month during lockdown then finally found something that I was interested in.
After a couple of weeks of gathering materials and playing around, I started my Instagram @gees_gifts on 26th of October 2020. I then went on to get my very first order on 5th November and it’s been growing ever since!!!
- What do you sell and at what price point?
Currently, I sell personalised initial key rings and number key rings! Each key ring is priced very reasonably at just £5! The initials can also be made into decorations for a Christmas tree (at Christmas time)!! One for each member of the family perhaps?
I’m intending on branching out to other products, but that’s a secret for now! My postage is £1.99 per order not per keyring or ornament so it’s always better to order all together.
- What’s your biggest achievement so far?
So far, I found myself most excited about trying new combinations! Flowers with gold, silver or rose gold flakes, glitter with flakes and just plain glitter!! I also had a mini celebration when I hit 100 followers in just over two weeks!
- What’s your aim/goal with your business?
The goal is to keep expanding and making people’s keys and trees prettier. Ideally I would love to hit 200 followers by the end of the (2020) year, and 50 orders! If you’re going to dream, may as well dream big!
- How can people find you and buy from you?
My handles if you have an questions or want to place an order are:

I’m always online to discuss different designs, offer my advise of pick combos for your orders, and of course to make sure you get what you’re looking for!
As always, thank you for reading and please go check out Gina’s business and show some love!
