// OSR closing? my toughest decision yet…

It’s part excitement mixed with a bit of bittersweet that I’m letting you know that I’ll be closing the one sydney road store on 12/3.

You know that old saying ‘When one door closes, another opens’?  Well, the time has come for me to close one door because another one is opening wide.  After 2 incredible, amazing, terrifying, exhausting, stressful yet still wonderful years, the time has come to say goodbye to this little baby of mine.  And trust me, this was not an easy decision.  (let’s just say lots of soul-searching and a few tears).  The truly amazing thing is that taking this leap and opening the OSR store opened so many doors for me – doors I didn’t even know or think about!

OSR was started out of my love for design & the incredibly talented artists that are creating it.  Behind the scenes this past year, I’ve been helping other artists, retailers & aspiring creative business owners to get their own businesses up, running & shining.  And it has been absolutely eye opening…I love it!  I want to jump with both feet on to this new path!  And the truth is that I’ve built up a full workload with clients and an ecourse & eguide launching in 2013 – which leaves me without the time needed to keep the OSR online store running.

But, guess what?   one sydney road isn’t completely going away!

I’ve decided to keep the name & the pop up shops going.  When I first came up with the name, I loved that it symbolized being on a road or path.  So I think it fits in perfectly to this new venture of mine!  Getting you on your path, so to speak.  Plus, the pop-up shops have been such fun to put together & another way to promote artists who are doing amazing work.

I feel truly grateful for the support & cheers you’ve all given me.  Words don’t even begin to explain how much it has meant to me.  Whether you’ve blogged about me and the store, been a customer or just sent me a little note, it kept me going everyday, even through the tough times.  Without you, the store wouldn’t have blossomed and this new path certainly would not have opened.

As a big THANKS, I would like to give you all a 50% discount on anything left in stock.
Use code ‘OSRTHANKYOU’ at checkout.

There’s only minimal quantities left, so grab it while you can – hopefully this will be a great start (and budget friendly!) on your holiday shopping!!  I’m giving this offer to you all first before opening it up to everyone.  You’ll have until 11/15 to use the code & snap up what you can before it’s open to everyone.

Love & Cheers!
(& for all of you artists, designers & shop owners, even aspiring ones, I hope to see you on the new ‘road’!)
