Where I Have Been....Where I Am Going and a Sale!

Over the past few months, you may have noticed that the pace of new vintage dresses coming to Couture Allure has slowed down considerably and that my posts on this blog have become erratic.  There's a reason for that.

Winter.  I can't do winter any more.  You'll recall my road trips down south in January 2012 and 2013.  In addition to shopping for vintage all along the way, my husband and I were also scouting for a new place to live during the winter months.  And we've found it in delightful Dunedin, FL.  We've both worked for years and years to get to this point and our dream is finally coming true.

In 2012, we made the decision to start working toward selling our home here in Massachusetts.  It took us a year of hard labor making repairs and improvements, decluttering and staging the house to put it on the market.  All that work at home has pulled me away from the business at times.  We had a goal of getting the house on the market by April 1, 2013.  We missed that goal by 9 days. 

But we were very, very lucky as all our hard work paid off.  The house sold in 5 days to a lovely family that is the perfect fit for it.  In the past month, we've found a temporary home here in MA for the summer, we've been packing up and getting rid of things we no longer need.  We're having a big estate sale this weekend to sell off most of our furniture and we're moving out of our house next week.

Does that stop me from finding fabulous new vintage for you?  NO!  But in the past month, all that new vintage has been piling up as I have no time to go to the office.  There's too much to do at home! 

This coming week, not only do we have to move out of our house, I also have to move my business closer to our new home.  What that means for you is there will be no new vintage hitting the site for the next week or two, but starting June 1st I should be back up and running with loads of new beauties for you.  It also means a SALE!  The less I have to move, the easier that move will be.  Starting right now through Saturday May 18, take 20% off your entire order at Couture Allure.  Simply enter coupon code "move" at checkout and the discount will automatically be applied.  The discount does not apply to previous orders or shipping costs.  All orders will ship on Monday, May 20.
