Jillian Harris Is Closing Her Charlie Ford Vintage Site — Why?
We love you, but sometimes we just have to kid a little. Like right now, for instance. So, don’t worry, it’s not over for uber-adorbs Season 5 Bachelorette Jillian Harris and her boyfriend Justin Pasutto. On the contrary, this change may end up bringing them closer together. So what’s up?
Interior designer/TV star extraordinaire Jillian tweeted that she’s hitting the pause button on her web business, Charlie Ford Vintage: "On February 10th, @ShopCharlieford will be closing its doors, until then 15% off EVERYTHING read more about it here." She linked to a post on the Charlie Ford site titled "'A Bientot' (see you soon).”
“Sometimes a break from your routine, is the very thing you need,” Jillian wrote. “We believe this so much, that us girls have decided to give Charlie Ford Vintage a little vacation.”
She said they’ll be working on improvements and changes to the site, but more than anything it sounds like they’re going to use this time to NOT work on the biz. “[T]he last year has taught us so much about history, heirlooms, a greater appreciation for grannies, gramps, families and quality time,” Jilly continued. “We have therefore made the important decision to take some quality time for family and friends.”
Good for her! When life gives you too many things to juggle, you have to put something down, even if it’s something you love. Jillian co-founded the e-commerce site last July, but even at the start she admitted it was a lot to take on with her other projects. “Yeah, I am sort of crazy about work,” the HGTV star told Wetpaint Entertainment. “I have my own website, I design a 4,000-square-foot prize home every year, I work with Caesarstone, I’m renovating my own home, and I live three hours away from Love It or List It’s home base. So, yeah, it’s a lot.”
Too much, it seems, at least for now. But while we wish Jilly success on everything she does, we’re glad to see that she has her priorities straight, including spending time with Justin. Just yesterday (February 2), she tweeted a yummy-looking breakfast pic, tagging her main man: "Hello Sunday. #family #fresghscones #housefullalove #sundayvisits @justinpasutto." Sounds like a perfect day!
Are you sorry to hear Charlie Ford is closing for at least a little while or are you just happy that Jillian is putting friends and family first?
