It’s with absolute excitement that I can officially announce that I am curating an online boutique. Yes, my very own store! Something I’ve wanted to do for so long and it feels really good. This store of mine isn’t a regular online store though, I will be doing this through the Great.ly channel. Now if you haven’t heard about Great.ly then that’s pretty normal because today approximately 50 chosen bloggers and influencers are announcing the launch of their curated boutiques. It really is the beginning of something ground breaking. Read on and I’ll tell you how it works.
Great.ly is a gorgeous new marketplace where Tastemakers (bloggers like me), connect Makers with shoppers. It really couldn’t be simpler. So if you know and love the style of a particular blogger or influencer, you can tap into that style via their boutique. Once you’re there, you’ll find things that they love and that you’re sure to love too.
I’ve already curated a selection of beautiful homewares, accessories, gifts and art in my boutique. None of it is mass produced, all of it with good design in mind and of course items that I adore and would happily own myself. I will continually be updating my store with fresh new product as I discover new emerging talent.
Enough about it, how about you check it out for yourself, pop over to my brand spanking new Armoire, Pegs & Casserole store!
So… what did you think?
One more thing before I go. If you’re a maker this could be an opportunity for you to get noticed and to get your product and talent out there internationally. All makers need to do is apply to set up a studio and continue to make beautiful things while store curators sell it for you. It’s a brilliant concept. If you are a maker and are ready to take on the world, I urge you to apply to have a studio today.
I do hope that you join me in my excitement and I would love any help you can give me in spreading the word about my boutique.
