Taking a Step Back in Order to Move Forward
Hi Everyone, time for a little life/business update. As you may or may not have noticed, things have been fairly quiet around here recently. I wish I could say it's because I have big exciting things in the works, but unfortunately, that's not the case. Instead, I am sad to report that I will be shutting down the storefront, effective immediately.
As I mentioned on social media, I recently made the decision to temporarily close the storefront due to issues we were experiencing with the HVAC system. The situation had became untenable, but I was hopeful that we would be able to find a mutually agreeable resolution to the problem with our landlord. Unfortunately, that did not happen, and we are now at the point that we have had to vacate the space immediately. This is not at all how I hoped for things to end, but here we are.
The silver lining to this whole situation is that by taking this step back, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. I would be lying if I said that the last couple of years haven't had me completely stressed out and constantly on the edge of burnout. For the first time in months, however, I feel energized and ready to move forward again and see where the road takes us. I really hope you'll all stick around and continue to join me on this journey (and if you want to bring some friends along, I definitely won't mind).
So, what does this all mean, for you? For our online customers, not much will be affected. Between March Break this week and setting up a new space, however, please be patient with me. I will try and get your orders out as quickly as possible, but fulfilment times may take a little longer than usual. Social media updates will also continue to be limited for a bit while I try and figure a sustainable plan and path forward.
As for local customers, in-person shopping will be suspended for the time being, but local pick-up will still be an available option. Hopefully, some time in the future, we will be able to find a solution that will allow by-appointment in-person shopping again.
If you've made it all the way to the bottom, thank you for taking the time to read this, it means a lot! And don't worry, we'll be back to our regular pretty fabric content real soon ;)
