Why this business was started
We started this business based on our love for fashion. It took us years to find and test out the right suppliers to obtain the best materials for affordable pricing. This has set us apart from local stores and other online websites. All our pieces are unique and different then the typical store inventory you can find. All our first time customers are return customers based on the fact that they can't find unique pieces online at affordable pricing and we always get such positive feedback (as seen on our Instagram review tab). We have over 20,000 Instagram followers which grew rapidly due to the love our followers had for our content.
The reason of selling this business
When I started this business I was at a different place in my personal life and had the time to shop around to find unique pieces, have photoshoots, edit the pictures and run the website professionally. Now I have 2 babies and I'm not able to even handle my shipments coming in and get them up on the website in a timely manner. Since December 2018, the arrival of baby #2, I haven't been able to spend the time that I would like on this business. It has been a very hard decision for me to let this go and I'm very torn about doing this. This business needs love and attention and has been growing great but it would strive with a little bit of marketing and time invested into it.

How to grow this business
