Happy New Year!

As we start the New Year, all of us are continuing to follow the necessary COVID protocols. Staying safe and ensuring the safety of others is our number #1 goal. Shut downs are tough for a small business.  We are optimistic things may open up come April/May.
Public events hopefully will return and we can launch the spring/summer portion of our business. It will look a bit different, but we will adapt to the new normal. We will keep you posted!!

June 2020
We will continually utilize our website, facebook, instagram, messenger, e-mail and phone to service our customers.
Online invoicing/payments with contact free delivery will be in place.
Keep checking back for updates. Event organizers are hoping the Fall & Christmas Markets will be a go. That remains to be determined at this point.

May 2020
As many small businesses continue to wait and see........
COVID 19 is still making decisions for us.  This is a very difficult time for our businesses but we need to stay united and stop the spread and protect our customers and community. It is now official; at this point all outdoor markets and most events are cancelled until further notice. We are planning to implement on line sales and contact free delivery. We will be posting product inventory regularly.

April 2020​
We need to use this month to fight COVID 19 with a vengeance.
Non-essential businesses need to stay closed and we need to stay home. This makes it extremely difficult for us all, but a necessary move. I feel optimistic that if we pull together, we will win the battle.
The front line workers are working hard for us. Let's help them!

March / April 2020
During these extraordinary times, the health & safety
of our community is of utmost importance.
Due to COVID-19, as you can imagine, it has an impact on all of us.
Together we will come thru it and hopefully resume our regular
activities in the near future. Retail suppliers are working with minimal staff and some have suspended shipping.  This is a bold move but necessary. We are hoping to resume our Spring/Summer Season May1/2020. Let's do what we can for our neighbours and keep our friends and family safe. There is a reason for all the closures. Stay home, social distancing is the only way to stop the spread of this virus.
