Have you been wondering why it's been so quiet around here lately? I've been getting emails from lots of readers asking why it's been so quiet and why I haven't been able to keep up with the 52 Lists Project the last 3 weeks. My apologies for that, and don't worry, it will be back soon :) I've just been working very very hard at something pretty huge over the last few months and we are getting down to crunch time in the next few weeks as we prep for the big launch. Do you want to know what my team and I have been working away on? It's time for the big reveal!
I'm so excited to announce that I am launching a new online retail site at the end of July! Over the last few months, I've gone from working by myself to partnering with a business partner and hiring on an amazing staff. This has been a huge team effort and I have been so grateful for each and every contribution from our staff and friends. Time for a shout out :)
ON OUR TEAM
Jenette, our partner and operations manager.
Allie, our copywriter.
Margaret, our editorial photographer.
Tram, Aneta, & Emilee, our in studio interns.
Elanor & Asia, our blogger and design interns.
On my end, I've been juggling a few different positions besides being the founder and co-owner. I've been heading up all the buying (We have over 700 products ready to go for launch!), all the design for the site, all the product photography, handling all the social media planning, and a few other bits and pieces. It's been a whirlwind and possibly the most exciting and crazy season of my life :)
A LITTLE ABOUT WHAT YOU'LL FIND ON THE SITE
THE MEANING BEHIND IT ALL
With every purchase that is made, 7% of all proceeds will be donated to various worthy Non Profits. We have chosen 5 different categories of Social Causes, within which, various Non Profits will be featured on a rotating basis. You'll be able to shop by product type, by designer, and by social cause! I'll explain more about this special part of our site in another post next week :)
I hope you are just as excited as my staff and I are about the new site! Get ready to find some beautiful treasures, support handmade designers, and give back to great causes all at the same time! Let's do good and do great together! Please sign up for our mailing list to get some inside scoops, updates, and maybe some discount codes and gifts too!
