UPDATE (12/22): Where did this month go? Hell, where did this YEAR run off to? I'll be busy with festivities for the next couple days, so I wanted to take the time to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you that celebrate it, and Happy December 25th Weekend, and Happy New Year to those that don't (it's a goddamned new year whether you believe it in or not). This year was our first full year in business and we exceeded our own expectations, which is always a good thing!
Next year we are hoping to double our inventory, while simultaneously branching out from the bedding hole that we fell into this year. This isn't to say that we'll stop carrying bedding--I've admittedly grown too fond and familiar with the stuff to do that--but we are probably going to cut back on the number of comforters we get in, instead allocating some of that money to housewares, small appliances, and other household items. When we started this little shop, we envisioned it as a fun place with an eclectic assortment of merchandise, that encourage shoppers to check back periodically to see what kind of unique, must-have items we added, and would like to take a step in that direction as soon as we can.
Furthermore, we have a Facebook Page that we'd love for you to follow! Just search for "The Tom's Boutique" on the social media giant. It's brand new and a work in progress (starting it around the holidays was a dumb idea), but add yourselves anyway so that it will motivate me to update it once this busy season comes to an end. Right now we just have select bedding items available for sale, but are hoping to incorporate some fun new features, such as items of the week, highlights on new products and/or categories, and maybe even an exclusive flash sale or two on items that we're trying to get rid of!
