Kingstown, St. Vincent (One News SVG)- After almost four years of operation, The Prop Shop is now a registered business in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The Prop Shop which began operating in August 2016 is the business of Registered Nurse Nashida White and her daughter Jael James who was only nine years old at the time.
White says it all began when she did props for her son’s birthday and her friend’s bridal shower. The Prop Shop owner said after she did those “people started to ask me to do it for them”.
She says since August 2016 “we have been home based with deliveries in and around Kingstown. We do birthday parties, weddings and all events including business events”.
White says she is happy to share the business with her daughter, “I feel good, very good that I give her a sense of independence, gaining her own money and learning from a young age about running a business”.
The Prop Shop owner says she is also happy about registering her business “I feel a sense of pride knowing that I invested years into it and people already know about the Prop Shop, I am also happy about the benefits that come with registering with the Commerce and Intellectual Property Office- CIPO”.
White says there are other Prop Shops in St.Vincent and the Grenadines but “The Prop Shop is not in collaboration or in affiliation with any other Prop Shops”.
She says her business has extended its services and The Prop Shop now offers birthday suits and event rentals.
