It is with a heavy, yet elated, heart that we announce that we will be closing the Pierogi Picnic Etsy shop on July 31st.
I founded Pierogi Picnic in the fall of 2008 with the hopes of changing the face of eco-friendly fashion. And I believe that I was able to do just that! Made in small batches using recycled cottons, Pierogi Picnic was the first clothing collection of its kind that offered fun-loving, affordable and sustainable designs. I’m pretty darn proud of how far the line has come, but now it’s time for bigger and better things!
Since Pierogi Picnic’s launch so much has changed in the green goods industry, fashion and Etsy – and for the better! A lot has shifted in my personal life too. A flourishing career in the animal welfare field, a bouncing baby boy, a new design aesthetic, and more, have led me to make the decision to shutter the Pierogi Picnic brand as it currently stands. Change is a good thing and it’s time to move on to the next big thing!
So what does this mean for all you Pierogi Picnic fans? Well, prepare to get excited because there’s some pretty nifty things up ahead! I’m in the process of developing a brand new line of products in collaboration with my talented husband, artist David Paul Downs. Think bright, joyful, and of course, eco-friendly. That’s all I can reveal for now – it’s a mega secret at the moment! Tune in mid-summer for an official announcement about our new endeavor.
In the meantime, there’s a ton of super cool one-of-a-kind handmade goodies I’m looking to re-home from the Pierogi Picnic Etsy shop at a deep discount. To give you, my faithful followers, a head start on scooping up all my close-outs, I’ve created a coupon code that will knock 50% off the current price on anything and everything in my shop. Just type in “solongfarewell2015″ in the coupon field upon checkout and the discount will come off your final total. We’ll open up the sale to the general public on June 1st – so get in on the fun while the gettin’s good! Just think – this may be the last time you can score handmade and eco-friendly clothes at such a great price!
We are so excited to be entering into this new chapter of our lives as a family and can’t wait to share details with you this coming season. Until then show us some love and scoop up some handmade goodies while you can!
