Younique, a makeup company that aspires to Uplift, Empower, and Validate women through cosmetics that are naturally-based and as good for you as they are lovely to use.
I signed up, hoping to make $50-$100 a month. One month in I've got a growing team, and am making more money than I used to make at my part time job.
This has meant a few changes, both online and off. My Instagram account, still full of photos of my knitting and my kids, is also now sharing some space with makeup. I've set up a biz page on Facebook for my new business, and I'm spending more time there than I have been here on the blog.
And I'm closing up shop.
But I kept the shop open, hoping to make a bit of extra money to cover shipping costs for charity hats, and maybe even pay a bill here and there. Instead, having an Etsy shop has consistently stressed me out, and been more of a frustration than a good thing.
So the shop is closing on May 15. If you want to purchase anything from me, this is the time to do it. The shop will NOT re-open, ever again.
If you're looking for handmade items in the future, I will gladly point you to some of my favorites, and might even do a gift guide of sorts featuring these shops as the holidays get closer. As for me, my knitting will once again focus solely on charity, and I couldn't be happier.
Between now and May 15, all items in my shop are on sale, and the prices reflect that. There's no coupons needed, everything has been marked down at least 10%, but in most cases much more.
To those of you who are here because of the shop, thanks so much for your past support! I can't wait to share more about my Younique journey in the coming days, weeks, and months, and I hope you will be as supportive of that.
