New Year | New Direction

As 2012 draws to a close, Gallop Lifestyle is heading in a new direction. 

We started our online store over two years ago with the aim of supporting boutique designers who produce beautiful products in an ethical way. Our ethos has not changed, but our business has. 2013 will see a new phase for Gallop Lifestyle, and a new way of promoting great design online. 

Due to increasing work and family commitments, we have decided to close our online store for the time being. The last day for shopping on the site will be today.  

This has been a huge decision for us, and not one we have taken lightly. With other work commitments, a new business for Janet and her husband, and a third baby for me, we have had to face that we are not able to dedicate enough time to the online store to enable it to grow to its full potential. Its a hard reality to face, as working mums we would like to think we can do it all. 

Our blog and social media channels will remain, and hopefully grow. We will continue to share the beautiful design and boutique designers we find online. I do have plans for where Gallop Lifestyle can go once I have my head above water with our expanding family.

We appreciate the fantastic support you have shown us up until now and hope you continue to follow our journey as we start a new phase.

Oh, and wishing you a very Happy New Year!

  1. Thanks for all the beaut products you've brought us. Best wishes for your future enterprises.


    1. Thanks SnowRugs! Keep me posted with your products as I'm happy to promote them on the blog, providing they can be bought online. I'll also be doing some more project work for designers needing help with their distribution & marketing strategies (once I have my head above water with baby #3), so please get in touch in 2013 if this is something you think would interest you.
