How you can help...
Charles and I made a very difficult mind decision that was heart correct. Our choice to close over two weeks ago before all the social distancing policies were put in place has had a severe impact on our finances...but we wouldn't do it any differently. Helping flatten that virus curve at all costs is too important in helping keep people safe.
Thank you so much for your generous outpouring of encouragement and support for our small business during this time.
Many of you have generously asked how you can help with our business during this time. We want you to know we SO appreciate all of you. We are honored that you are our community and family!!! Thank you.
There are some very easy and quick (some even free) ways we would SO appreciate your help:
Gift Certificates: Buying a gift certificate gives us cash flow right now to pay bills, make decisions and do the right thing for people working for us and selling their work in our shop. These gift certificates are good online. You can use them for your invoices on the LIVE Facebook shows. You can also use them when we, hopefully re-open.
Share our posts online: We post online to help provide information for our community, when our shows go LIVE on Facebook, as well as fun posts about items we have for sale. Clicking the 'share' button when you see those helps us immensely!
Join us during our LIVE shows: We are now showing and selling our items virtually on Facebook's LIVE shows. You watch safely and easily in the comfort of your home. Say SOLD to the items you want.
Our show schedule is:
- Wednesday: 5pm pst
- Thursday - Saturday: Noon pst and 6pm pst
- Sunday: Noon
Got Your Five: Help us in checking in with the community.
This new normal is fast moving and filled with tons of decisions, declarations and even fear with a good dose of anxiety. Checking in on each other about physical needs (tp and sanitizer), emotional needs (listening and empathy) or even prayer requests is crucial right now as we are all isolating.

Simply message or (gasp!) call them and say, "Hey...how are you doing today?" It might be a short conversation - but they'll feel appreciated that someone cared to reach out to them. It might be a longer conversation as they are in need of something. Perhaps you can fulfill that need...an extra loaf of bread, a vent session or a connection to someone/agency who can fix the issue.
Depending on your personal bandwidth that day, you can choose to do as many people as you feel you can take on. Fully realize that some days that number will be zero and it's time for you to rejuvenate YOU.
Can you imagine how awesome this would be if THIS kindness becomes viral. You check in on 5 people and they check in on 5, etc, etc..
So I'm checking on YOU right now. How you doin'? No really, I want to know...shoot me a message and let me know!
