What we've been up to

We have had so many exciting things happening lately I thought I would fill you in on all the little thingsJ
First, our website is growing like CRAZY and we couldn’t be happier! I have been working on it 24/7 and I’m so happy to know  all the late nights and early mornings are paying offJ If you haven’t checked it out lately click here. We are literally adding new inventory daily at this point.

Second, our wholesale line {Sophie Jane} has taken off very well also. It is now being sold in about 5 stores and we are working on a few more at the moment. You can also show {Sophie Jane} here in our Etsy shop. Our goal with this line is to have It in as many stores as possible and still be able to make everything ourselves. I will always prefer to be small and well made over mass produced and cheaply put together.

Third,  we have kind of moved out of our retail location. I say kind of because our store was connected (by double doors) to our neighbors store Creative Touch. The lovely owner of Creative Touch- Vicki heard about my wholesale line and how well it was going and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, She would take over our store and sell our items for us and continue to sell our handmade goodies in the future. This meant more time to travel and promote our website and wholesale line. So, I said yesJ At this exact second our store looks empty. Come 8am tomorrow morning Vicki and her amazing staff will open those double doors connecting our shops and make one big amazing gift and floral shop! I cannot wait to get in there and help them! It is so cool to have so many people wanting to help you accomplish your dreams. I truly could not be more blessed.

Fourth, I am now the Kentucky wholesale rep for Lenny & Eva. A jewelry line I absolutely love! If you haven’t checked it out on our website click here. You will be addicted! (I know all my customers are).

Fifth, you will being seeing HorseFeathers in quite a few magazine ads over the next few months! Our favorite is a full page ad in Dirt Road Daughters. You have got to check it out!

We are so excited for what the future holds. It is such a good feeling to know you took and chance and did something out of the ordinary and now it just keeps growing and growing.
Peace & love~

We are growing like CrAzY!

As many of you already know from watching us on Facebook, we have been swamped with online orders lately and our new line of jewelry Sophie Jane has really taken off and is already being sold in several stores in the south. With that being said, we have more exciting news! On August 1st HorseFeathers will be merging with Creative Touch (our neighbor).
 You will be able to purchase most of the same items we have in our current store and will also still be able to place custom orders for jewelry and furniture painting as usual. The doors between our two stores will now be open and we will have one entrance (how convenient, one huge store with tons of awesome stuff! ).

Creative Touch offers a wide variety of gifts, accessories & home decor as well as floral design.  We are thrilled that you will be able to purchase all our wonderful items you come to love and we can’t wait to get out on the road a bit more and get ourselves into more and more stores across the US!  
We super  happy with how much success our website has achieved in such a short time and it just keeps growing! We plan on focusing a ton more on the site and adding lots of fabulous new products such as, dresses, more personalized jewelry as well as handbags and clutches.
HorseFeathers Gifts will still have the same phone number so please feel free to call or e-mail us if you have any questions on anything or need help with a giftJ
The new store hours will be Monday – Friday 8:30-5:00 and Saturday 8:30- 1:00

You will also be able to shop a wide variety of our furniture, up-cycled items and jewelry at ArtiFacts in Clarksville, TN around the 15th of AugustJ

Be sure and checkout our website often as we are adding new inventory daily!!!
