This post is a lot different than most of my posts and is the hardest one I have ever had to write. Seven years ago, I took a giant leap of faith and opened a boutique in my home, which moved into my current location just 20 months later. Who opens a business at 50 I was asked and was even called crazy by some, but God guided me and I trusted in Him, EVERY, SINGLE step of the way.
I am sure you all know I didn’t open Lizzy’s to get rich. I felt a calling to help women look and feel their best and have met some amazing people along the way. We have laughed together and we have cried together and many have become my friends. The passion and dedication that has gone into running my business cannot be put into words, but unfortunately the demands of owning my business was great, especially with mine and Andy’s health. We have also missed out on so many other things such as time spent with family and grandchildren and our love of traveling.
So after many months of discussion, it is with a VERY heavy heart, I have made the extremely hard decision to end this chapter and will be closing my downtown Sycamore location. I will still operate with the help of family my online business, and will move the Nora Fleming to D&D Jeweler’s and also plan on having some of my local items that Sweet Earth used to carry at 35:35 Makers Collective. Trunk shows and pop ups are also already being scheduled at two Sycamore merchants.
I am not really sure what July 1st will bring nor how Fiona and Dallas will feel not going to the boutique, One thing is for sure, we have been honored to serve you and will MISS each and every one of you!
