Glitterbomb is closing

Posted on 05 Aug 08:34 , 0 comments

Well, I've been thinking about this for a while and I think it's time to start closing down the main store. There are a few reasons for this decision;

  • I get super sad when I see people ripping off my designs (thanks Claire's), it's hard not to be emotionally invested in a business you've run for 5 years and even harder to accept there's nothing you can do (realistically)
  • I don't make a lot of money from the business; considering the time I spend and the stress it can bring, after I've paid tax it just doesn't seem worth it sometimes
  • The main reason is probably the fact that I no longer have time to effectively run a business and produce new items. Glitterbomb is a one-woman operation (with occasional help from my husband!) and I have a full-time job and am in the process of buying a house which will need a lot of renovation.

It's been a great 5 years, this might not be forever, and I'll be keeping the Etsy store open for a while after our main one has closed to sell off excess stock.
