Let me begin by saying we couldn’t be more thankful for all of our wonderful clients, friends, and tribe of small business supporters…your orders, messages, and check-ins have brightened our days, given us a sense of community, and brought joy during uncertain times. YOU are living the true embodiment of ‘We Rise By Lifting Others’ and we sincerely hope that the packages arriving at your doorsteps and porches have brought you just as much joy as we have had delivering them.
If you know me personally, you also know that in addition to being a full-time, small business owner, I am also a mama to 3 littles, wife, daughter and friend…all occupations that I hold dear and priorities that are so very important to me and those people I am blessed to call my own. Regardless of what is happening in the outside world, these amazing folks who continue to let me show up and be myself will always take priority. With childcare, job requirements, and the lack of a cohesive plan to reopen across the state, our family is taking careful measures to assess how re-opening will look while also being cautious and care-minded about your safety and well-being. YOU truly fall into the priority list alongside all the others.
The brick and mortar shop has been closed since March 14th, 2020, but the online shop has remained open and expanded beyond anything I had ever dreamed possible. Behind the scenes we continue to create, design, expand and process brand new inventory, and dream up new shop spaces. Over the next two weeks we plan to change up the interior of the shop, continue to add new items, and make sure our kiddos complete the rest of what is surprisingly a successful school year for each of them. This brings us to hopefully opening after Memorial Day to new shop views, windows, and merchandise. The process may look a little different for how you shop, but you’ll still be greeted with the same joy and beautiful local goods as always.
Until then, we will continue to offer complimentary delivery, new specials aimed at those of you who continue to support small business rather than rush to big box stores, and add new items to the online shop and social media weekly. From us and all of our small business vendors inside the shop, we cannot wait to move forward and thank you in person. In the meantime, keep checking social media, the blog, and the online shop for all the goodies for yourself and the besties you continue to miss…and we’ll continue to be right by your side, packing them up, and happily sending them to you and yours.
Stay well and In The Moment...
