Site Improvements!

Kept you waiting, huh?
Hello world. Long time no type.
It's October of 2021 and I can honestly say that I'm lucky that I still have Anon Patch Store up and running.

It's been a while since I've written a post on the store blog, mostly because I feel like not many people read or care, but a lot has happened in my life and I feel like a bit of venting is in order.
First off, it's been 3 years and a few months since I first opened Anon Patch Store, and despite a rocky road of ups and downs, I'm well on my way to becoming an established brand. Not exactly a household name, but my competitors haven't pushed me out of business yet. I like to thank my customers for that at least. Without them, I wouldn't have the means to keep the store running, so thank you.
In my previous posts, I've described my adventures and my ideas, plans that don't always pan out, and other things of that nature. This business requires a lot of time and money up-front, and so I haven't been able to bring a lot lately in terms of inventory. For that, I apologize. However, I do plan on saving up more of my personal funds to keep APS well-stocked, and moving forward will be embracing a culture of live and let-go to fund stuff people actually want.
It started off as a way to get products I liked out into the open, and it will still work that way, but I will be prioritizing things that customers want as well. For every design I think is cute or funny, I will be pushing out one that the community should (theoretically) enjoy.
I will also be redirecting more of my money and time into renovating the digital storefront, with updated logos as time goes by, better product photos, and hopefully a brand new site. Small improvements like this will make shopping easier on the eye and easier overall. Changes like this should help customers understand that APS is not stagnating, and is always looking to improve both in givings and in style.
Finally, as we move into 2022, a lot of things have changed. COVID-19 hit, and everyone suffered. Things changed, including me, but it was a time of transformation, some good some bad. Moving forward, however, APS will continue to be at the forefront of my mind. Prices will move up and down, inventory will sell out and restock, and some things may never come back. It's the name of the game, but hopefully we can continue to do what we've done best: provide interesting designs for as cheap as possible for the community that asks for it.
A deep thank you from the bottom of my heart for those who have stayed with APS over the years. We've got some big moves to make before 2022, so I hope you continue to stick with us for another year to come.
See you next drop,
-PatchcraftAnon
