Default A Muse *not* closing?

I thought A Muse Studio was closing but I just got an e-mail about their new website? Did they just drop consultants instead of completely closing?

Excluding the charity calendars, is this maybe just the "new website to sell remaining inventory"?

The thing is that there is products on there that were sold out when she had consultants. So to me that says a lot right there.

Please be mindful of our site posting rules - no negative posts about people. I know this is a tough subject. Thank you!

*On a personal note, I think all of this is so sad and I feel terrible for the consultants. I absolutely love the brand and the style, and I used to be standing outside the locked door of my local store on Tuesday when she opened because that was the day she got her A Muse, before they were DSA. And after DSA - I loved the catalogs and the product. I'll never get rid of those adorable Easter peeps and dies.


My heart goes out to you and everyone else, Erica. I can't imagine how you must feel.

The website is only open until the end of December as they sell off remaining inventory. Right now it's 25% off, but I suspect as the month goes on, they will sell what's left for less and less. They are not restocking inventory once it's out. I used to be a consultant and my current consultant keeps me informed as I'm a huge fan of A MUSE. So sad they are closing

Turns out I was wrong in the post above... I received my A MUSE order today and inside was a note saying to check the website in January for their Valentine's Day items, because they have everything we need to make the perfect card! So I have no idea what's going on with this company...

Looks like they are still going to sell on-line but on a smaller scale. A message was posted on the blog yesterday addressing it:New Year, New Happenings at A Muse - A Muse Studio


I love their products and am glad to see them continuing on (but still feel sorry for the consultants).

Methinks that Amuse just wanted to get out of the DSA/Demonstrators model of business, and this was Linda's way of doing that. It looks like they've gone back to the original Amuse formula of website sales.
