Can you believe it? Another year wrapped, and what a ride it's been! As I reflect on 2023, I'd like to express a huge thank you for all of your support this year.

So, what happened in 2023?

Let's take a stroll down memory lane and relive all the incredible moments that made this a record-breaking year for the Roost.

Expanding Our Reach: We spread our wings a little wider, reaching new corners and welcoming fresh faces into our Green Roost family. Because why keep all this goodness to ourselves? Our social media and online store let us share the love far and wide. The shop was even featured as a “Retailer Spotlight” in the September issue of Gifts & Decorative Accessories (a national publication)!

After-Hours Series: We kicked things up a notch with our After-Hours Series – a cozy, intimate way to connect with all of you beyond just shopping. We added floral classes with Bloom Bay Flowers, Charcuterie Events with Court’s Kitchen, Permanent Jewelry Pop-Ups with MH Jewelry Designs, and more! Stay tuned for the After-Hours event lineup for 2024…

Customer Appreciation Weekend: In September, we had the most incredible time during our first-ever Customer Appreciation Weekend. It was a celebration of YOU – the heartbeat of Green Roost. We laughed, shopped, and shared stories, creating memories that we'll cherish forever. Your love and support fuel our fire, and we couldn't be more thankful! Planning has already started for this year’s event, and it will be a weekend you won’t want to miss!

Green Roost Signature Leather: This summer, we launched our first-ever private label leather line! We collaborated with my friend Jen and created a line of leather goods ethically made in both India and Ethiopia. We proudly celebrated these artisans and, by doing this, created & sustained fair employment by committing to long-term production partnerships. (psst…here’s a hint: this won’t be our last private label line).

Kelsey's Mastermind Program and Bali Adventure: This year, I took things up a notch by joining a Mastermind Program. And guess what? It changed my life! I joined a community of women entrepreneurs and reignited my passion for business. I even fit in a trip to Bali and came back with both my head and heart full of inspiration. I’m excited to announce that I just kicked off year two of my Mastermind program and I can honestly tell you, this is just the beginning…

Record-breaking Sales means Record-breaking Impact: Drumroll, please! Thanks to your incredible support, we were able to make an even greater impact in both our local community and beyond. Every purchase here at Green Roost is a vote for positive change, and together, we're making waves in the world of socially responsible shopping.

As we wrap up this year, let's take a moment to reflect on the incredible journey we've embarked on together. Your passion and positivity have made Green Roost more than just a boutique – it's a community.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a part of this ride. Here's to you, to us, and to the endless possibilities that the future holds. Let's make 2024 even more extraordinary!

Cheers to you!
