About Londyn Kate Londyn Kate founder Kara Thomas envisioned a place where women could help women be successful. Because she knew an online community could be accessible to most women, Kara set out to create a virtual boutique, thoroughly researching what worked about online sales – and what didn’t. Kara launched Londyn Kate in October of 2012, and made it simple and affordable for vendors to join the site. With no fees to post, and a reasonable 3.5 percent commission fee only on items that sell, Londyn Kate offers a unique new community for women entrepreneurs. On Londyn Kate, shoppers can purchase one-of-a-kind gifts and help other women achieve their goals. Visit www.londynkate.com to learn more.
