End of an era.

So, I started writing this post on the last day that we had our shop open, but the day quickly got away from us and now we're already a week into January! All of December was pretty much a blur with birthdays, Christmas, our busiest month at the shop ever, as well as dealing with closing it up and preparing for the big move out of the store. Then came New Years eve, and here we are at January 7th! We have spent the last week relaxing, catching up on much needed sleep, spending time with friends and family and are getting pretty antsy to get back to work! We apologize for the lack of posts over here for the past few weeks, but we just couldn't find time, but not to worry-this new year is going to be really great, we can feel it in our bones. We have a lot of really exciting things in store and we will be filling you in in the weeks to come! Until then, here are a couple of shots from the last day or two at the shop, and the blurb I attempted to write but got sidetracked with everything else that was going on.

We definitely drank a few bottles of champagne that last day...
And just like that it was done.

Ugh. Today is finally here. We've been excited but also dreading this day for months now. Today is the day that we close the doors to our shop for good. We have been completely blown away by your support over the past three years, and especially this past month, we shattered all of our records and it's finally felt the way that we wanted it to feel in here for three years. It's so sad and I'm fighting tears just writing this post. So much has changed since we first got the keys to this place. We walked in completely overwhelmed and naive, in 50's dresses and positive attitudes. Sadly over the last year especially things have taken a hard turn, mostly in our personal lives, but we are getting through it and are holding our heads high as we walk out these doors for the last time.

Thank you. For reading our blog, for spending your hard earned money at our shop, and ultimately for believing in us! We have truly had the best time living out one of our dreams owning a shop! Now it's on to bigger and better things!
Not to worry, this is not the last this city has seen of us!

  1. What a courageous act to close up and go a different way. Thanks for sharing your journey.

  2. Aw. I must admit I felt pretty heart broken when I heard you guys were closing your shop but I just know you will create something beautiful in what ever you do!

    Hoping everything is okay with you girls and all the best in 2015 :)

  3. When one door closes, another one opens. All the best for you girls in 2015 :)


  4. Wishing you guys all the best for 2015 - can't wait to see what you get up to! x

  5. I can totally imagine how emotional this must have been. I second Tara that it's a really courageous act. I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for you, though, because I'm sure it will be really amazing.

  6. Hey ladies, must have been a big day for you to close the shop. Love your blog and hope to see more of your loveliness in 2015 and beyond. Cheers.
