Boutique Closing March 19, Website Continues

It has been a great 7+ years running my little shop. I am grateful for everyone who has supported Three Muses over the years and so happy to have met so many wonderful people. The last day to visit the boutique will be Saturday, March 19. The only day open before then will be Wednesday, March 16 from 11-4.

The boutique will go out with a bang, open for the last time during Mandarin Minicon 3, a free event celebrating comics and cosplay. https://www.facebook.com/events/884838528281539/

The ThreeMusesClothing.com website will continue as-is, I will also continue making costumes. Just the boutique is closing, I am NOT going out of business.

There have been a few questions, so here are some answers:

  1. Aren’t you moving to Mythical Mountain?

Yes! But not as a store- I will have my office there to take care of website orders and a workshop space to make costumes. I will not have a boutique inside Mythical Mountain. However, you will be able to pick-up website orders and purchase Worbla. Also, many of the Three Muses brand corsets are available locally at Grease Rags Clothing in San Marco.

2. Are you selling everything in the store?

No- what doesn’t sell will still be on the website. But there will be a big sale March 19!

3. Why are you closing?

I had a baby in April and want to spend more time enjoying being a mom. I started the business as a website over 10 years ago and plan to go back to running the business online again. I don’t want to deal with the daily demands of running a boutique.

Feel free to post any other questions!
