Woo Hoo - we are looking Goooood!

Diva is coming along great. I now have a dozen bikinis listed for sale as well as 4 pairs of shoes, hair pieces (with more being added shortly) and jewellery.

It is really exciting to have watched the site grow and see word getting out about the store. The Diva Consignments concept is unique to Australia and I know it will expand as more girls realise it is there for them to use. Like any new business, however, it will take a little time to expand and reach maximum capacity. What that capacity is I dont know just yet - I suppose it will be governed by how much storage space I have available for all the stock - lol.

Thanks so much to all the girls that have already sent items to put up for sale. I have had a few inquiries already, but will expect more interest once the Holiday season is over and I also get a chance to advertise more at upcoming shows in 2009.

On another note, I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Happy and Safe Christmas and a successful start to 2009! May all your wishes come true.

Open For Business

Diva is finally open for business and looking forward to providing a great service for the female competitor market.

Already we have bikinis, shoes and jewellery listed with a few more items to be added in a day or so. Word is slowly spreading and we are getting inquiries and confirmations of listings all the time.

Remember, like any second hand / pre-loved store, it will only be as good as the products that are sold. So girls, do a spring (summer) clean out of all your old comp gear and send it through. What you might think is old or unsuitable might very well be another girls dream bikini. With the economy struggling as it is, many will be looking for a cheaper option to help them reach their onstage goals without the stress of financial issues that we know all too well can be associated with competing.

DIVA Consignments definitely wasn't developed as a money making venture for us but as a much needed and long overdue service for female competitors. We are looking forward to watching DIVA grow and become yet another useful resource within the competing community!
