Bye Bye Boutique? February 20, 2015 22:14

Wow! I can not believe that we are approaching the end of February! The last 2 months have been unbelievable as I have met the most amazing people and am touched by the excitement and love you all have poured into Haven Living. A heart felt THANK YOU is just not enough! 

Since opening the doors on December 1, the success of the shop has caught me completely off guard in the best way possible! I am still trying to figure out the learning curve that comes with being a shop owner, and have found myself really trying to hone in, on what Haven Living is all about and the direction I want to take the shop. Upon opening the store, my goal was to fill the space with pockets of "lifestyle" items and take the time to see where people gravitated. I am still new to Port Alberni, and am still finding my balance among the community. I can't believe the support from local boutique owners, and am truly in awe of how well these businesses are doing here. There are some pretty fabulous boutiques here in Port Alberni, and the truth is, honestly, at this point I just can't execute the clothing section as well as the established boutiques already are.

Now that I have had the opportunity to reflect on the growth of the shop, I have decided to shift towards more accessories, jewelry and growth in the the children's boutique and the body collections. My goal has always been to carry unique Canadian made items, gift ware and continue to expand the Haven Living Skin Care Collections, so that Haven Living continues to be unique and fresh! 

That being said, there are some pretty AMAZING things happening at the shop in the coming months! As some of you may have noticed, the website is getting a slight overhaul. It was time to make changes and adapt to carrying many of the products I have in store, ONLINE! With so many emails and requests for items seen on instagram and facebook, I felt it was time to appeal to the online followers, so beginning March 1 you will all have the opportunity to be a bigger part of Haven Living whether you live locally or a far!

Beginning Saturday February 21 until Saturday March 7, ALL clothing in the boutique is up to 50% off, and remaining stock will be pulled off the shelves in preparation for all the good things to come! Get it before they're gone! 

Thank you so much to each of you for your continued support, whether it's been online, in store or at one of our amazing retailers. I can't wait to see Haven Living begin to take shape and grow to accommodate so many amazing Canadian artisans, local and a far, I am so excited about what's to come, and I know that you will be too!
