From the Founder Abby
Closing down this business after five years has been an extremely painful experience. Just being honest. For five years, I have poured my heart and soul into building Bolt from scratch. Starting with a few thousand dollars and having a room in my parent's basement until now it has been quite the journey!
Despite making numerous sacrifices and taking various risks to keep our business afloat, Caleb and I eventually realized that we had to close our doors. This decision became apparent, particularly with the added responsibility of our little nugget on the way.
The decision to close down the business has been emotionally wrenching (I have cried a lot pregnancy hormones have not helped lol). However, life goes on, and there are always new beginnings to look forward to. Baby Howard is coming in July and Caleb has started a new role as a GM for a pavement maintenance company. Part of my next steps will involve focusing on my family and personal life. I will be taking some time off to reflect on my experiences. Try to see what we did well and learn from the mistakes. I know the lessons I learned from Bolt will be valuable in my future endeavors!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and thanks for coming along the journey of Bolt! I love you all. God is good!
Howard's Next Chapter
As one chapter closes another one opens. I am still praying and figuring out what is next for me post Bolt. No matter what, we know God is in control and that gives us peace. Baby coming end of July will surely keep me busy :)
Let customers speak for us
It fits super nice and it’s super flowy! I love the color and the size is perfect
I was worried that these shorts would be too short on me, but the length is perfect! They're so comfy and cute and the corduroy fabric is super high quality. I can definitely see myself wearing these often as they are a neutral color and can be worn with so many different tops!
Seriously love this place. Every time I wear I piece that I got from Bolt Boutique, I get a compliment! They have everything from staples to the latest trends, which is perfect when looking for a little bit of both :)
I got two items, and they shipped pretty quickly and looked exactly like the images! The quality is amazing and this shop sells so many great styles!! I got so many compliments when I wore what I got from here. Thank you for the sweet note as well :)
such a great website and staff! i ordered a couple pairs of pants from here and they shipped so quick! i actually got sent the wrong pair but i emailed them and they were so quick to respond and fix the problem! great communication and great quality of clothes! i’ll definitely be buying from here again in the future! :)
I ordered a bunch of the stretchy seamless tanks - they are such good quality. The shipping was fast and the owner of the boutique wrote me a sweet note and included a free scrunchie! Def will order from here again
I ordered the ankle bracelets and a ribbed crop top and it is all so cute! It also came with a handwritten note thanking me for my order and a extra scrunchie. Will def be ordering again. Wish i could give more than 5 stars!
I recently purchased many different pieces from Bolt, as a first time customer, to boot!! I am beyond satisfied with each and every item that I purchased!! The material of all items was of the highest quality and the sizing was spot on with all of the sizing descriptions that Abby so kindly includes with each item! Abby was wonderful about keeping me up-to-date with the status of my orders and, as others have mentioned, I loved the personal note & extra little gifts that came with my order! :) I love Abby & Caleb's story, their mission and the overall essence that is Bolt Boutique!! I look forward to supporting Bolt with future purchases and looking darn good while doing it!! ;)
All of the clothes I have ordered from Bolt have arrived quickly, In perfect condition with cute packaging and looks cute on me! The customer service has been excellent for any times I needed to switch a size or had a question. With handwritten notes, sometimes even a small extra gift, this is my favorite boutique to buy from! :) 11/10!
I am in absolute love with this company. I love supporting small businesses, especially when the clothing is actually good quality. This was my first time purchasing from Bolt Boutique and needless to say, I could not have asked for a better experience! When I received my package in the mail I was disappointed at first since it came with a small hole; however, I sent an email, and within minutes Abigail Howard, who I believe is the owner, responded and was able to send a new one. I was extremely impressed with how fast it was shipped to me, the quality of the tank top, and of course, the customer service! I will definitely continue to order from Bolt Boutique!
THE FACES BEHIND BOLT
Hi there! My name is Abby, and this is my husband Caleb. I started Bolt in March of 2018 in my parent's basement during my senior year of college. Fast forward a few years later and here we are! As a company, we donate monthly to Hope For Justice and partner with two overseas missionaries!
