Shelley started Duckthreads on a total whim on January 1st of 2019, and just hasn’t stopped! She is enjoying the process and can’t wait to see what the future holds for the company.
Shelley has lived in Utah for almost 20 years, with her husband and 4 children - two boys and two girls. She enjoys reading, traveling, learning, and spending time with her family. She has a passion for photography, and takes all of the photos for Duckthreads. It’s one of her favorite parts of the business!
Shelley earned a bachelors degree in Economics in 1995. In 2004, she co-developed and owned an online deal and coupon website and community, that was sold to another owner in 2015. Some may remember her as Shelley from PinchingYourPennies.com. She spent hours making grocery lists and finding online and offline deals to help shoppers save money wherever possible. The things she learned developing, maintaining, and growing that business have been invaluable in starting this new business, Duckthreads. She is excited to use the knowledge she gained in another area of interest, kids and teens fashion! She is also excited to share this experience with her 11 and 17 year old daughters, and teach them the ins and outs of owning a business. You may spot them on the website modeling our cute clothes, and working pop-up shops selling those clothes!
