Retrogirl Confessional is a blog about small business, surviving convention vending solo, and food….because food.

I own a music and geek store in Williamsburg, Virginia and I vend at 24-25 science fiction, horror, and comic conventions each year. I have a helper that runs the store for me when I’m at cons, but otherwise, I run the convention booths and the day to day of the business solo. Do you see those dark circles under my eyes? Yep–that’s why.


I started this blog because I love Pinterest for getting tips to help me get things done better/easier, and things that are just more fun! I’m hoping that I can pass along some things that I’ve learned as a female business owner that will help out the next pinner. Let’s face it–Pinterest is an awesome way to kill a few hours in what seems like fifteen minutes!
