Eleven years ago today, the publish button was hit on the very first blog post ever created for Wild Ruffle.

And thus began an evolution we never saw coming, but have loved so much along the way.

That first post led into Pop Up Shops, held throughout the city of Prior Lake, and even one at Bachman's in Minneapolis. From there, we opened our initial shop space in December of 2014 - sharing it with our friends at Urban Halo Headbands. Boy, was it tiny! We prayed for a larger space, and before we knew it, one opened up just two doors down, and in May 2016 we welcomed you into our current brick and mortar location.

We began our story on the internet, and while we've had our online shop for a long time, our new focus is to make the Wild Ruffle online shopping experience just as great as the one in store. We're never satisfied with staying stagnant, and we're working to renew and refresh all the time. Good things are coming, and we can't wait to share them with you!

So as we celebrate our 11th anniversary, we're looking ahead to many more years to come. We couldn't do any of this without our Wild Ruffle community, and we're so grateful you've joined us for this ride. Thank you, for being the best customers we could ever ask for!
