GENERAL QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
When is all of this happening?
It’s happening really soon, I am so sorry for the short notice! The shop will be closed this Sunday, May 15th. It will only be closed for a short time though because by June 11, it will reopen as The Found Shop and it’s going to be amazing - you’re going to see a whole new shop!! We hope to see you for the grand opening on June 11th!
May 15th?! That’s this Sunday.
I know. Again, I am sorry for the short notice :( We’re super excited for The Found Shop to get going on this and want to support them however we can. We wanted to be able to give them time to prepare for their shop. Don’t worry though, all the fun goodies you’re used to buying at OHFSHOP can still be purchased at The Found Shop when they reopen on June 11th!
How can I say goodbye?
We’d love to say goodbye and thank you for all your support! If you’ve been a long time supporter, follower, or fan of OHFSHOP, please join us on Friday, May 27th, 7:00 p.m. We’ll be hosting our “closing” event in the form of an encouragement night! We are all about encouraging others, and we thought there is no better way to finish up at the shop than with an encouragement night. More news to come on that.
Are you closing your entire business?
Nope! the oh, hello friend brand will continue on! I have heard the shop + brand have been a bit confusing. We actually have a whole line of oh, hello friend branded stationery + gifts, that I (danni) design. That is my first passion. To design and create. I’ve loved having a shop, curating it is one of my favorite parts. But I want to return to what I started doing: designing, creating, and blogging! I wouldn’t really think of it as closing, even though the OHFSHOP name will not be on the door anymore, the shop will, in a sense, live on through The Found Shop! Jeni and her team are curating a beautiful shop where you will find the same inspiration and encouragement you found at our shop!
Why would you walk away from a successful and established shop?
I’ve struggled with that! Sometimes I think it doesn’t make sense. but sometimes things God calls us to things that make absolutely no sense. It doesn’t make rational sense. but in Faith, I must respond. He is calling me to surrender and in faith and trust, I surrender my shop to the One who orchestrates all things together for the good of those who love Him.
What are you doing to do now?
I don’t know what the future will bring. Nick and I don't have any big or grand plans, except that we do want to start a family. I am not sure what the next years, even the next few months or weeks or days hold. To be honest, I’m scared. and there are still days that I wrestle with this decision. I ask God to confirm it one more time, and in His loving and kind heart, He does. Through reading, through a friend, through a circumstance. I know I am being called to something else, and in faith and obedience, I cannot ignore what He is leading us to.
Will you continue encouragement nights?
We would really LOVE to! We need to figure out what that even looks like though. Stay tuned.
Where can I find you?
I’ll still be around! We still have an office located in Fullerton. If you’ve followed the @OHFSHOP instagram, please follow @ohhellofriend or check out my blog, as I plan to return to blogging once again (I’ve come full circle, hehe) http://ohhellofriend.com/blog
What about the OHFSHOP girls?
They’ll also still be around! You can stay in touch with Alethia (@alethialov) Rachel (@rachelhneal) Marissa (@marissaosswald) and Kristyn (@_kristynashley) :) Marissa and Kristyn will be continuing at The Found Shop so stop in and say hello to them!
I'm still signed up for a workshop on May 21! Will the shop be closed?
The workshops will all still continue and we have a plan, I'll send you an email regarding this by the end of the day :)
