An end to a decade, and a new one begins...
Chloe Boutique had a pretty successful year in 2009.
I had the honor of designing jewelry for two weddings...one of which is a close friend's daughter. Not only did I make the Bride's jewelry, but also her Bridesmaids earrings, the Bride's Mother's necklace, and the Brides Mother-in-Law's necklace and earrings! The wedding was gorgeous, and took place in Gulf Shores, Alabama last August.
Chloe Boutique has been on Etsy for just over two years, and had 451 sales at the end of 2009.
ArtFire is still in it's Beta stage, but Chloe Boutique finished the year with 11 sales. We're hoping that ArtFire really takes off, and that we have more sales there! ArtFire promises to be a great selling venue for handmade items!
Chloe Boutique has extended its line to include a Louisiana-Fleur de Lis section. Wow! This line has been HOT! I've sold over 30 Fleur de Lis inspired necklaces and earrings!!!
Chloe Boutique displayed jewelry in the Teacher's Lounge at Woodlawn Elementary School in September. The teachers loved the jewelry!!! As a "thank you", I donated $75 from my proceeds to the school.
In early December, Chloe Boutique was at the First Annual Downtown Christmas Market in Monroe. We had a great turn out despite the cold weather, and numerous events going on that same day!
We were featured in several blogs, Etsy Treasuries and even a local publication in 2009. Some of the blogs include Handmade Louisiana, Stitches n Cotton, Crafts By Chris, and Beaded Tail. I was featured in Panache Magazine, a local magazine in Monroe, LA in December!
And, last but certainly not least, Chloe Boutique was being sold in a local shop, The Gingerbread House in West Monroe, LA!!! They've requested to carry some of my Fleur de Lis pieces during 2010!!! I hope that it really takes off for me :)
Happy New Year, and may you all be blessed with love and joy!!
