September 15th marked a 5 year anniversary for A Milli Little Things and owner, Saleemah Smith, shared her personal journey on social media. "Wow! I can't believe it. I remember nervously hitting the "Live" button on my Shopify account and paying more for the shipping cost than the actual order on my first sale because I simply didn't know how to ship. I've learned so much on this journey, and still daily. I started with one product and now I'm up to 84 with more than 200 varieties. I couldn't imagine that." She thanked everyone who supports her with reposts, purchases, visits, advice or spreading the word. None of it goes unnoticed! You're invited to celebrate her 5 year business anniversary and first year in her Merchantville storefront on Saturday October 3rd featuring super deals, wine, and food to go.
