Popular online style and shopping guide BussBuss.com launches Haute Shops to give the web's best shopping boutiques and emerging designers heightened exposure and to give shoppers an easy way to find top shopping sites, exclusive discounts and, best of all, a simple and great way to find gifts.
Tired of the ubiquitous blah and boring text links, and not being a fan of having to pay or sign up for sites in order to use their shopping guides, BussBuss.com created a one-stop shop for the web's hautest shopping sites: Haute Shops. Haute Shops at BussBuss gives users complete ease and shopping convenience, providing shoppers with hard-to-find emerging designers, exclusive discounts and the trendiest boutiques, all in one spot.
Understanding how time and money-starved people are these days, and wanting to help, BussBuss launched this invaluable resource to help consumers as well as designers.
"WeÂre like the match.com of the shopping world, uniting shoppers with great boutiques and designers -- and vice versa. 'Oh, let me tell you about this great designer I know who would be just perfect for you...' Sometimes I feel like the quintessential matchmaker," laughs Kelly Lee, creator and editor of BussBuss.com.
BussBuss ventures beyond megasites and chains, exposing cool, underground shopping sites and nearly impossible to score one-of-a-kind gifts. "YouÂll see these sites in magazines sometimes, but then forget the names unless you're a diligent 'Favorites' list person, so we decided to become your Favorites list," says Lee.
BussBuss strives to take away the stress of finding gifts and to make shopping fun again. With Haute Shops, youÂll always find a great gift, plus you're privy to discounts you can't find anywhere else. Haute Shops also features profiles and interviews with designers and shop owners, so shoppers get a more in-depth look at the people behind the products.
The goal of BussBuss is to give a presence to and to celebrate the incredible emerging designers and small businesses that don't have big advertising dollars, and in turn, present consumers with fabulous, fun alternatives to the big chain stores. Haute Shops items range from $5 to $500, with a wide range of products in categories such as clothing, accessories, bags, jewelry, pets, home and gifts, beauty and bath, paper, and baby and kids.
Also of note, 99% of the Haute Shops are women-owned businesses. "We are thrilled to be able to give so many women an incredible opportunity for exposure and growth," says Lee.
Set up just like a shop with easily browsable categories such as Haute Accessories, Haute Home and Gifts, Haute Paper, Haute Frocks, Haute Beauty and Bath, Haute Pets, etc., Haute Shops is free, fun and instant. The 50+ Haute Shops members include sites Label-LA.com, Girlshop.com, MargaretNicole.com, Goclothing.com, Wishingfish.com, RenaTom.com, CalliopeBoutique.com, among many others.
