I have some sad news news about the Indie Fixx Shop….I have decided to close up shop.This is not a decision that I have made lightly, but one I have agonized over. Opening a boutique has been a dream of mine ever since I was a little girl. Other girls played house and school while I played shop. As I got older, I decided that one day I would open my own shop. This goal only strengthened as I started my own jewelry line (tiltingswiftly.com), and later Indie Fixx the blog, as did my interest in helping to promote other indie artists. My goal was to open an online boutique and later a brick and mortar shop. With the opening of the Indie Fixx Shop in 2007, I was finally able to bring my plan to fruition.
Right out of the gate, the Shop was successful and I have been very, very busy ever since the opening. That’s the problem, the Shop was too successful. Running a online shop is a very labor intensive endeavor and other aspects of my life had begun to suffer as a result. Over the holiday break, I did some soul searching and decided that I needed to prioritize my personal and professional life to reclaim some of my time. I sat down and made pro vs. con lists and really looked at how I was spending my time. Unfortunately, the shop came up as the big time hog. A difficult decision had to be made, so I decided to close the shop.
The official last day of the Indie Fixx Shop will be March 15th and I am having a Going Out of Business Sale until then, or at least until my goods sell out. Starting today, everything is on sale from 10% – 50% off and no coupon code is necessary. Plus, every order will receive a free Chocolate Bon Bon Soap, while supplies last.
Visit the Shop and take this opportunity to shop one last time for yourself & your family & friends. Stock up for those upcoming birthdays, hostess gifts, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and all those future gift-giving situations.
Finally, thank you to all my artists, designers and customers for believing in and supporting the shop. I love you all.
