YOU CAN’T GET THIS ONLINE
Happy New Year and Welcome to our First Blog post of the year. We have so many exciting things to share with you! We are doing some renovating and re-decorating to bring you an even better shopping experience that ever before and we will be closed on Sundays and Mondays in January to allow us to make those changes with minimal impact on our customers.
Our 2017 Mantra is “YOU CAN’T GET THIS ONLINE”. We will give you that listening ear, the hug you need, that hot coffee on a cold day and the ability to touch, feel and try on our beautiful things.
Our new Farmhouse table is designed to give you the best personal service ever. The area is still under construction, but we couldn’t wait to tell you about our plans for that room.
Come in, grab a cup of coffee or tea and a treat and sit down with us at our table to tell us how you are doing and how we can make your experience at The White Butterfly a better one. We will be having small events in that room such as book signings, small painting classes and so much more.
We see so many products that we would love to have in the shop, but space sometimes limits that, so we have put together some amazing resources to bring you additional products that we don’t have room for on our shelves. We have expanded our selection of personalized products and can’t wait to share those resources with you. Sit down with one of our expert stylists and we can help you find just about anything your heart desires.
While we continue to expand our selections of our current wonderful lines we are also very excited to bring you new and wonderful products. Among the many new things coming in are, brand new Home decor, a new amazing fragrance line, new styles of our very popular Mermaid Sequin Pillows and funny and functional socks, just to mention a few. We are completely thrilled with our new picks and can’t wait to share them with you.
We just got back from the Accessories Show in New York City which was amazing despite the snow. The Brighton Spring release is AMAZING!!!! Stop in to get a sneak peek in the Brighton Spring catalog of just a few of the new things coming in. we are completely convinced that all the gorgeous Butterfly products in the line were made especially for us!!!
I am thrilled to be going to the Brighton factory in California next week to get a look at new and upcoming products and to learn about the latest style trends and I can’t wait to share everything I learn there with you.
Small businesses are facing new challenges every day and we are so grateful for your support. We all have an impact on what our neighborhoods are going to look like in the future. As we watch even the big stores like Macy’s, The Limited and Sears, just to name a few closing their retail stores, we are reminded that it is even more important to shop local if we want to keep the brick and mortar retailers around. I try very hard to shop in person even in the Big Box stores. Our neighbors work in those stores and if I only shop online, they won’t have a job and that will have a huge impact on their spending ability, on the housing values and so many different things. So, while I admit that I am tempted to order online, if it is a product that I can get in a local store, even a Big Box store, I make it my mission to go to the store itself because I want my Mall to have a Macy’s store in it. I want a neighborhood Bed, Bath and Beyond, a Target etc. I will miss The Limited in the Mall. Even the major chains will close their stores if most of their income is coming from on line sales and then there will be no stores to walk around in where we can touch the products in person and chat with the salespeople.
It is even more critical to shop small because we don’t have a big company backing us up. We depend on each and every sale to keep our doors open. That is why we are striving to make your experience at The White Butterfly the absolute best it can be in person. We are committed to showing you that you can’t get this experience online. So, please stop in and hang up your coat while you enjoy our complimentary coffee bar and chat with us. So many of our customers have become our dear friends and we can’t wait to share all of the exciting changes we have in store for you this year!
Hoping that 2017 is an amazing year for each and every one of you!!!
