After careful thought, consideration, and deliberation, I have decided to close The Gathering Goddess. For the past 16 years, I have done something I have been truly passionate about. In that time, I have met and dressed some amazing women from all different walks of life. That is a gift I will always cherish.
However, this past year has presented both challenges and opportunities which have brought me to this decision. I didn’t want to just close the business and disappear without an explanation. That isn’t me and this business has always been a reflection of the woman that I am.
The main reason for closing the business is that I have two important business projects which have been simmering in the background for some time and they are now taking shape and the time is ripe to move them forward. I can’t yet speak about them publicly but when they do manifest, I can assure you that you will know about them and you will know that it is me behind them. I am brimming with excitement about both projects. They will need my complete focus which is why I am closing the business.
In the meantime, I need to liquidate my stock so I will be having a huge clearance sale. The entirety of the stock will be at least 50% off with immediate effect (except for a small selection of higher-end couture pieces which will be discounted but not as much). We have everything from gowns, coats, jumpers and cocktail dresses. There are scarves, hats and handbags and lots of beautiful items that have been lurking in our cupboards for a long while. This sale applies to everything online as well as in our studio.
Because the majority of our pieces are not on the website, I encourage you to make an appointment to visit our studio. We will now accept appointments 7 days a week and early evenings. Email us at: info at thegatheringgoddess dot com .
If you are looking for something in particular, please feel free to reach out and I will see if we have it in stock.
I will always miss The Gathering Goddess. I will miss my clients. I will miss the clothes but I suspect that I will always be collecting. The next chapter is going to be so exciting and I do hope that you will all stay connected to me via social media to follow my progress (Twitter: @wilmamae Instagram: @misswilmamae).
Thank you to all of my beautiful goddesses who have supported me over the years.
