The end of a shabby era...

I had heard from my sis-in-law that Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic was going out of business. I was hoping that it was a nasty rumor. Unfortunately, my dissapointment was confirmed when I checked the Shabby Chic blog today. The poor economy was just too much for Ms. Ashwell's online store and most of her bricks and morter stores as well. However, she will still sell her Simply Shabby Chic line at Target stores for the time being. Rachel commented on her blog that she is currently in England working on a book and that while it is goodbye for now, it won't be forever. I give Rachel and her inspired line the credit for my love of all things shabby and will continue to always be a shabby chic girl.
