In June of 2011, my little dream of owning a boutique became reality and I opened Carter’s Cottage. Over the years, many friendships were formed, creativity could be found in every corner, and unique finds adorned the shop temporarily until they found their forever home with you. Many of you frequently commented how often the look of Carter’s Cottage changed and we agree! There was always something new to see and it took a lap or two, or three thru the store to still not see it all! You always found something new you treasured and supported my little dream. For that, I am eternally grateful.
A new season is upon me, a season of change. Change is sometimes sad & scary, sometimes exciting and fun, but in either case always necessary for what’s next in life. With this change I am so very sad to announce I will be closing Carter’s Cottage this June.
Many of you over the years expressed how you found joy, peace, comfort, encouragement in my little shop…somehow just knowing the shop was open, you knew there would be some little something that would brighten your day, and when you needed peace you could find solace in the midst of life’s chaos. You have shared your joys and your sadness and I am honored with your trust and friendship. What I feel is so very important for you to understand is, You have been my joy all along. You have given me so much happiness sharing your life. You have given me a reason to be proud of who I am and what I have created. So please remember Carter’s Cottage with joy and smiles. And please understand, this is my choice to close, so I can grow a new dream in a new direction.
Please don’t hesitate to pop in and see the new items that are still trickling in. There are several pieces that will make their way to the shop in the next few weeks. Some painted, some not, all worth a look! If you haven’t found us on Facebook or Instagram, now is the perfect time as our Store Closing Sale and all future announcements will be made on social media. With this closure, we are no longer accepting checks, nor honoring our old return/exchange policy. Effective today, all sales are final and gift certificates are no longer available.
This has been an incredible dream of mine that you help make a reality. I am truly blessed!
With much love,
Christie & Charlie
