Hey babes! It's Stacy, I am the owner of Love Obsessed- and this is my story.
Love Obsessed was born at my dining room table in January of 2012, where I designed my first piece of jewelry.
I actually made the bracelet for myself, until a friend of mine asked if it was for sale. So I guess I have her to thank for all of this ( Thanks Dotty! ).
It was only 6 weeks after my first son, Nicholas, was born. I had a new baby boy that I was just in love with, I was planning a Valentine's Day party for my family ( my favorite holiday ) and I was just in love with love. So hence the name for my business was born - Love Obsessed.
I opened an Etsy shop, listed a few pieces, and it just took off!
My pieces started showing up in the very same fashion magazines that inspired me - Marie Claire, People, Vogue, Seventeen, and so many more!
I started doing trunk shows across the United States, traveling far and wide to tell people my story and to grow my business.
Then I started to notice something, the stores I used to shop at for my wardrobe- were looking so BASIC. Everything was the same- nothing original, inspired, different.
My wheels started turning. Hmmm......what if I started to sell clothes??
So I set up a little showroom in my house, started a VIP group on Facebook, and added a few friends. People were obsessed. Everything I bought would sell out.
So just 3 months after selling my first piece of clothing, I signed the lease for my first brick and mortar store. I opened my Quakertown store in August of 2016, just two weeks shy of giving birth to my daughter Olivia. A year later I got to open a store in my hometown of Souderton, PA. Lansdale would follow in 2018, and Ocean City, NJ, a Plus Size Store, a NEW Souderton location and the King Of Prussia Mall would happen in 2019 - it was a busy year!!
What's in the works for 2020? Launching online shopping - FINALLY! Our website is scheduled to launch April 1st!
Once we get that up and running, I want to enjoy my Summer and then maybe a new location for the end of 2020. Easton and Bethlehem are at the top of my list!
In the meantime, you can still shop online in our Facebook group. We'll ship it right to you! Here is the link so you can shop through Facebook:
So that's my story, or at least til this point. Can't wait to see where Love Obsessed takes me next. I hope you'll join me for the ride.
