Sooooo, its a little late, but we recently officially turned 7 in May and celebrated with a big ole party a few weeks ago in June (there were many tacos, you should have been there!!).
When much retail has moved out of Libertyville and replaced by restaurants, we look back in awe and immense gratitude that we are still here.
We are thriving.
When we opened in 2010, we knew we did not want to be like other stores.
We are growing.
And its all thanks to you.
Especially big box stores.
We wanted a very special space with products that reflected a certain individual and a certain lifestyle. Although our assortment has changed quite a bit through the years, that ethos has not.
Products that are thoughtful, well made and useful while still being gorgeous.
Services that are individualized to each person, couple or family we work with.
A space that is relaxing, welcoming, inspiring and enjoyable to shop in.
Look, we know we are not for everyone, and that's perfectly ok! We actually designed it that way!
However, the ones that do get us- thank you! You are our heart, you keep us inspired and alive in more ways than one. Thank you for believing in us and developing a legitimately meaningful relationship. Thank you for walking in that one, random day, and thank you 100x over for coming back over and over.
Thank you for telling your friends about us.
Thank you for giving us positive feed back when you were happy and *constructive* criticism when things could be improved.
Most of all, thank you for letting us into your homes and lives, we truly care about you and are grateful to be a small part of your life.
To everyone else who has yet to come in... There is room in the Eclectic family and we can't wait to meet you (and your dogs).
