Why this business was started
There was a need in the marketplace for high quality layering pieces without a high price tag. The owners developed relationships in Italy with fabric suppliers and manufacturers in the US and have a small but dedicated clientele. With almost no advertising and little social media, we have developed a very loyal customer base in both wholesale and retail sectors. There is significant room for growth.
The reason of selling this business
or the past two years the partners have been focused on family obligations and other ventures and have not had time to focus on growth. Despite this, the business has done well with sales remaining consistent thanks to repeat business. The partners can no longer dedicate the time needed to run, much less grow, the business but are committed to working with the buyer for a smooth, successful transition.

What work have you put into the store?
We have customized the store with product colors that show each image/color, created tabs on certain pages that give it a more customized feel and added many apps that improve the customer experience.
