Shoptiques is an online marketplace for women’s clothing and home decor. The company was started by Harvard Business School graduate and former Goldman Sachs investment banker Olga Vidisheva. It was founded to give small local boutiques an online presence by providing them access to customers worldwide as well as services such as photography, shipping assistance, and digital marketing.As of 2015, Shoptiques ships internationally to five countries.
Shoptiques.com lets you shop the world’s best local boutiques online. In the past, if you lived in Dallas and wanted to shop a small boutique in New York or LA or even Paris, you had to buy a plane ticket. They simply weren’t online, and if they were, there was no way to find them. We’ve brought them online — and created a destination that connects savvy shoppers with thousands of handpicked boutiques across the globe. Founded in 2012 by Olga Vidisheva with just 25 boutiques on the platform, Shoptiques now has thousands of stores on the site — and quickly growing.
At Shoptiques, we have two primary goals: First, we want to enable customers to buy one-of-a-kind merchandise that they can’t find anywhere else. Secondly, we want to provide small businesses with digital solutions that allow them to compete on a global scale. As a shopper, you can discover products according to traditional shopping categories as well as by neighborhood and even by store. As a Shoptiques boutique, you have access to millions of customers as well as a multitude of customizable tools, such as web hosting, email marketing, and inventory management.
