A Sad Day at Bettyjoy Towers

The Bettyjoy online boutique is closing its doors after two and half years.  It was a very difficult decision to make, but I was struggling to spend enough time on the site, as I work full-time in another job, and felt I was neglecting it a bit and not giving it the attention it deserved.  I'm also in the process of a career transition, which will mean I have even less time to spend on the site.  Add the credit crunch into the mix and it makes it even less of an option to keep the store going. I've met some wonderful people thru having the store, both suppliers, customers and PR people and (if any of you are reading this blog) I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind support of the store over the last two and a half years.  The store will close at the beginning of April so get your hands on the lovely produce while you can!  The Bettyjoy blog will remain open so keep visiting!

I'm sorry to hear that. I just starting out and trying for this handmade business. It's sad to see someone invest some years, but finally to call it quit. I wish you joy with your career ahead of you.

Firstly, I didn't realise there were many great posts already! I was looking through what I have missed out and I reached this post. I am sorry to hear the news. I totally understand that it can be very difficult especially when you are in the middle of career change. With online shop, you have always the choice of re-opening? You never know. :D
Knowing your dedication and wonderful posts on your blog, I know that you have made the right decision and I wish you all the best for your career!
