Shabby Chic Files for Bankruptcy

Call it a sign of these economic (and Mid-Century Modern-crazed) times: Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic brand has offically filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection...

The cause for filing bankruptcy might be a case of diminished sales and a large expansion effort (10 new stores in the past few years) that began before the economic crisis had set in completely. We'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter - are you suprised by the news? What are your thoughts on Shabby Chic these days?
