I hate to start the week off with bad news, but here it goes: KaVatee is going out of business.
These two local designers (Katie and Valerie) developed a great concept, produced some amazing merchandise, and got some impressive coverage… to include being on The Today Show, in many international blogs and even a featured vendor in Macy’s. But in order to continue business and take it to the next level, they’d need to take a financial risk neither designer was willing to make.
Valerie and Katie sent out a heartfelt email to all their clients and supporters thanking them, and also left the door open for future opportunities: “We very well could introduce a new brand or concept in the future,” the email said.
So, this isn’t completely a Debbie Downer blog post. There’s a silver lining in all of this. There will be a HUGE sale of all their remaining inventory! Go to Kavatee.com to take advantage of all the deep discounts. Remember, the holidays will be here before you know it!
Happy shopping – and best of luck on your future endeavors, Val and Katie! I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear from you.
Thanks to my intern Sara Elliott for helping put this blog post together!
