Vivi, a California direct-sales jewelry company formerly known as Cookie Lee, has filed for bankruptcy, The Orange County Register reports. The company listed assets of under $50,000 and liabilities of $1 million to $10 million in its Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing on July 8, the article says, noting that Chapter 7 usually indicates a company intends to liquidate instead of reorganize under Chapter 11.

The article explains that Cookie Lee was founded in 1992 and then sold in 2014 to Debbie Millar, who renamed the company to Vivi. On the day the company closed, Sue Neff, a Vivi sales consultant, wrote on the company’s Facebook page: “Debbie has worked very hard over the past two years to rebuild a company that had been declining for years. Unfortunately, rebuilding sometimes just doesn’t work out.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
