Gibbs did not publicly disclose how much revenue the shop is generating, but Rescue Themes has seven products available on Themeforest ranging in price from $16-$59. She also has several free plugins and two free themes (Gateway and Politics) listed on WordPress.org.
“This decision hasn’t come lightly and I’ve had many sleepless nights wrestling over it,” Gibbs said in her post announcing that the shop is for sale. “Rescue Themes has done quite well for me and I admit that I feel a little sad letting it go but I’ve come to a point where the time I have to dedicate to it has dwindled as new projects and opportunities take over my day. It would pain me infinitely more seeing it go adrift than it would to hand over the keys to someone else.”
After enlisting the help of the professional theme reviewers at the Themereview.co service, Gibbs began building all of her products with WordPress standards in place. With Themeforest as her primary distribution avenue, she was one of the few WordPress sellers making a difference by providing standards-compliant products.
Gibbs is looking for a buyer who will make positive contributions to the WordPress community, continue support for her current customers, and continue to distribute the current products under the GPL license.
