Wow. 2018 and our first full year as Adventurista Boutique was one for the books. Here are a few of the highlights:
We traveled to SE Asia for 2.5 months to work with artisans to produce ethically made products.We sold out of our Adventurista clutch, which is handmade in Bali, Indonesia the very first week. Now we are producing and carrying them in multiple colors. In 2019, we will be working on creating even more purses and bags in both Indonesia and India.
We started the process of designing our very own exclusive Adventurista clothing line, which we will be continuing to work on and bringing to life in 2019.
We focused on carrying ethically produced items, and we will continue to search for and produce high quality items that fairly support the people who made them and are ethically made. In 2018, we even visited one of the small workshops we are working with in Cambodia, which produces incredible clothes made from recycled remnant fabrics.
We launched our website in April. Then in the fall, we made it even better with additions like our blog. Each week, we’ll now be sharing different inspirations, style tips, travel stories, etc. This is one my favorite additions to our website, and we cannot wait to share even more in 2019.
We started using CommentSold for our Facebook group and our live shows to make shopping Adventurista on social media easier than ever!
We started the development of building an app that will completely change how you shop with us. If you are in our Facebook group, you might have heard us talk about this. We recently wrapped up the development of the app, and we will be introducing it to you all next week!
We took our mobile boutique to 15 markets from August to December! Eric and I were on the road every single weekend for five months! I absolutely love bringing our mobile boutique around the U.S. We have even more markets planned for 2019, and we hope to share our updated schedule in January, once our plans are finalized.
Thank you so much for being part of Adventurista. I appreciate each of you! We look forward to bringing you amazing styles, personal styling, inspiration, and serving you in 2019. Cheers to living boldly and adventurously in 2019!
