Share The Lovely Shakes Up The Bridal Industry “Saving Main St Bridal”

Bridal Changemaker, Saving Main St. Bridal – “Share the Lovely”, The Uber of Bridal Industry watchers are saying Share The Lovely is a true game-changer – with the potential to make a real difference for struggling bridal shops while making life easier for stressed-out brides.

 

“As we say, Share the Lovely is setting out to ‘Save Main St. Bridal’ – and the planet – one dress at a time!” says the power woman founder behind the company, Bonnie Gringer, who was recently named an Impact Entrepreneur To Watch in 2021.

 

Recently, Share the Lovely announced the launch of its groundbreaking new platform, a bridal Ecommerce marketplace dedicated to the circular economy. The initiative that has got industry watchers so excited is described as “A partnership-based business model, setting out to save the local bridal market, starting online.”

 

The fully sustainable Ecommerce platform is looking to help a struggling industry (Main Street bridal shops) while shaking up the way brides shop in the future. Through an innovative circular business model, and working closely with its network of small retailers, Share the Lovely is providing brides with a novel, risk-free shopping experience, catering to the new generation of brides.

 

“Quite simply, it is a seamless shopping experience both online and off,” Gringer says proudly. “Through a unique partnership-based business model, Share the Lovely is bridging the gap between online and local shopping, providing brides with verified quality and a delightful shopping experience.”

 

Think ThredUp meets StitchFix meets Uber, where “Brideshare is the new Rideshare.”

 

With its innovative model that matches real-time demand from its online marketplace to its local retail participants, Share The Lovely has real potential to save an industry in peril.

 

Even before the pandemic ravaged the world of retail, Bridal boutiques were closing at an alarming rate, often struggling with overstock, and increasing online competition.

 

With all of this, the pinnacle of the bridal experience is at risk. Share The Lovely is determined to change all that, to offset such struggles, helping designers and retailers say goodbye to burdensome inventories that no longer serve them while improving omnichannel reach and sales, all without requiring additional investment or resources.

 

Share the Lovely has the potential to make a real difference both to struggling bridal entrepreneurs – and to the brides themselves. Research shows that many brides today have different priorities than brides who came before. They come from a generation focused on sustainability. Secondhand fashion represents a $28 billion industry, expected to double by 2024. Considering the economic impact of the pandemic and the fact that the average affianced couple spends about $2,000 on a wedding dress; while 65% of Americans are only ever two paychecks away from bankruptcy, this issue is something that Bonnie Gringer, founder of Share the Lovely, is only too aware of: “Bridal is resale’s golden child, the high value retained in a wedding dress worn for just a few hours is unparalleled.” Share the Lovely also offsets the environmental cost of the bridal world, a highly wasteful section of the fashion industry where voluminous dresses are worn but once. The Knot reports that sustainable weddings have become the number one hot trend. Share the Lovely’s circular business model keeps dresses out of landfills, reducing the environmental toll of the bridal industry, and allowing Brides to reduce the environmental impact of their big day.

 

In addition to the cost and eco-benefits, Share the Lovely is also addressing the disconnect between the online and physical shopping worlds. The average couple spends 700 hours planning their wedding online but make 85% of their purchases in-store. Share the Lovely is bridging this gap, providing an online selection with risk-free, try-before-you-buy, and local fitting options all available in-store.

 

When asked to explain what a huge benefit that is to the bride-to-be, Bonnie smiles and says, “Have you ever tried on a ballgown on the side of the road? Such an unlikely scenario is in fact typical when shopping for second-hand wedding dresses online in a peer-to-peer marketplace; similar challenges are also experienced through traditional Ecommerce. Unlike online marketplaces, the entirety of Share the Lovely’s inventory is verified. This means whether pre-loved or new overstock, every single dress on our site is checked to make sure it is the real deal!”

 

THE SHARE THE LOVELY ORIGIN STORY – BONNIE SAYS :

“Sharethelovely was created out of my shopping experience as a bride. After a rough decade, I married the man of my dreams a few years ago, but we did it with a small budget, like most Brides, the “Average” wedding at $35k and dress at $2,000, was way out of my budget too. I also recognized all the waste and high value retained in all those wedding items used only once for a few hours. With 2.5 million weddings each year in the US, I thought it should have been easy to purchase some of that for my wedding. So for months, I tried all the options available to purchase pre-owned and consignment for my wedding, all epic fails. Have you ever tried on a ball gown with a train on the side of the road or a Walmart bathroom with someone you never met through an online marketplace? Coordinating schedules alone to meet at the same place and time took a bit of Magic. That’s when I saw the weakest link and an opportunity to make a difference for both brides and small businesses nationwide and the idea for Share The Lovely was born!”

Why Are the Ozark Mountains a Safe Haven for Christian Preppers

Christian preppers believe that the end of the world is coming, though “when” is something we still don’t know. It is necessary, then, to be separated from the world so we can prepare and survive, because if we can’t survive, we can’t serve. In preparing, it is important to cooperate with other Christians and to live intentionally in a group to minister at an advanced level.

If and when we are ever completely cut off from the world, we’ll be self-sufficient and able to function off the grid. At that time, we’ll be able to feed and protect ourselves and sustain life as close to normal as possible.

Silent Hill Farms, located in the Ozarks, is surrounded by hundreds of thousands of acres of farms and ranches who have homesteaded the land since the Indians. The Christian preppers are very respectful of the existing community – being mindful not to overbuild or overpopulate, instead, growing together and being of help to one another.

The Silent Hill Farms community does not adopt the practices of many communes that share a common purse and aspects of Pacifism and Socialism. Each intentional Christian or Christian family purchases and owns their own property and builds their own houses as they see fit, in accordance with some limits of a land covenant.

There are common areas within the community that offer residents the opportunity to hunt, fish, raise livestock, garden, and so forth, and residents are expected to be good stewards of all resources.

Christian preppers are not required to participate in communal life as they homestead and prepare for the tribulation, however, opportunities to socialize and learn from one another abound. Silent Hill Farms organizes camping trips, offers Bible study, exercise classes, training in safe firearm usage, and almost anything a person could imagine. Members are also expected to govern themselves and look out for one another, living as honest, Christ-focused people. Read More..

Fuji: business demands a fresh look

Over the years since the launch of the most famous web platform for a collective donation of funds for business ideas, billions of dollars have been raised for the development of startups. New platforms appear regularly to help investors and startups make money.

Fuji is a full-fledged investment marketplace that has its infrastructure and economic environment. This is a fairly young project that offers development to investors and experienced entrepreneurs, as well as startups. This project will allow business people to develop, and investors will receive additional income. This is a good way to get additional funds for your project through special Internet sites.

The site operates for the convenience of its users, so they made all investments in the Fuji system through a special internal FJT coin. Using this coin, the user can take part in all the activities of the site, as well as receive passive income with the organic growth of the coin.

What requests does the service work with?

Fuji offers an alternative way of doing business. To know where to invest your money, which startup will be profitable, how not to lose all your savings, you need an experienced guide in the business world. This site is just such a place where you can realize yourself in three directions: an investor, an experienced business owner, a start-upper.

Fuji helps to solve all organizational issues. An inexperienced start-upper will make all the most daring ideas come true. For a business owner, this platform opens up new prospects, helps to get additional income, and increases capital. Even if you are looking for certain services or you need a team of professionals to implement your project – you can get all this using this service.

Fuji and its distinctive features

The author of the project can raise funds for implementing the idea and estimate its relevance in advance, and the participant can contribute to the author’s initiative and receive a reward for it.

Fuji can raise funds for projects of various categories. The platform provides a platform for placing projects, and also helps in their promotion, while it has its currency, the internal coin FJT. This is the difference between this service and similar ones. For the convenience of users, an internal coin operates, which can also bring passive income from its growth.

The advantage of this service is also that it allows you to get financing without the participation of banks, venture funds, and stock exchanges. For the author of the project, this is an opportunity to raise funds for his project without loans and a copyright transfer. It is also an excellent PR reason, an opportunity to talk about a project at no additional cost. The personal interest of the person who supports the project is also a huge plus. He likes the idea, the product, he empathizes with the difficulties of the person, they can discuss the idea, the stages of its implementation, and so on.

Benefits for partners

Fuji is an investment attraction platform that provides an opportunity for three categories of investor, start-upper, and experienced business owner to benefit from its use.

Start-upper

Everything we need from the author is an idea. He needs to describe why it is worth investing and how the innovation will be useful to society, how it can change the world, or how donors can get their money back.

Working with Fuji brings you to the epicenter of a strong and well-functioning business community. Here you will receive advice on running your startup and will fill knowledge gaps, learn from the experience of professionals and use the knowledge gained, as well as make money on the purchase and sale of our FJT coin.

Investor

You will receive part of the income that the project you invest in will bring. You can also leverage your experience, share it with the start-upper, and get a share of his business. The third option is to generate additional income from the internal coin. You will receive a very favorable rate when buying FJT coins on a presale – in the future, its value will grow by 25 cents for each round, as well as at the time of listing on the largest cryptocurrency exchanges. There will be only 3 rounds on the presale, and the price of the coin will increase with each of them. Further circulation of coins on crypto exchanges will also bring you additional profit. The more the coin grows in value, the more money you get.

Profile specialist

You can find interesting projects and then add them to your portfolio. You can work as a freelancer or become part of an experienced team. And also you can convert your knowledge into money to buy an FJT coin and get all the benefits that follow this investment.

Buying FJT Coin and Benefits When Buying in the First Rounds

The FJT coin serves to simplify the conduct of business between platform participants and is built based on the Tron blockchain. It is an aggregator of all payment methods and means for both investors and aspiring entrepreneurs.

FJT coin solves the problem of differences in currencies, their rates, and geopolitical situation in countries. FJT will go to cryptocurrency exchanges, but before that there will be three rounds and at the end of each, the value of the coin will grow.

It is more profitable to buy a coin in the first round because here operate certain advantages. When buying from $500 to $3000, the price for a coin will be $0.5, from $3000 to $10,000, the price will be $0.35, and when buying over $10,000, the price for one coin will be $0.25. This is half of its initial cost. Such a purchase allows you to increase your income in the future.
