I'm very much hoping this will be the last time I have to write one of these re-opening blog posts, but here we are again!
Yes, people, we are reopening as an actual, bona fide, proper little shop this week, so you'll be able to come and see us in the flesh and meet Sam for reals! To those of you who already know Sam through social media, please don't take this as an open invitation to head down for a social gathering; she has a job to do and I keep her very busy, so be warned - I would hate to have to ask you to leave on your first visit back!! 😉
Our opening hours for the time being are Wednesdays 12-4 and Fridays & Saturdays 10-4. Brother Joel has the honour of ensuring all online orders are fulfilled on Tuesdays and Thursdays and he can't do two things at once, especially as some of you can be quite demanding, so we'll leave him in peace those days! Once we get up and running again, things may change, but for now this is how it is. We're no longer running appointments, so just head over when you're ready.
If you are planning on coming to the shop, please wear a face covering at all times (unless you're medically exempt) and if you're feeling a bit dodgy, then don't come in! We're only allowing 2 customers in at once, so please try and come on your own so someone else can shop at the same time as you. Also, please try and not bring and young 'uns with you if poss, as we don't want curious little fingers touching everything!
I've been asked by some of you when workshops will be starting again. Well, the simple answer is that we won't even be starting to schedule in any workshops until the majority of the restrictions are lifted in June. I cannot tell you how much of a ballache it was to reschedule everything when the lockdowns occurred at short notice, so I'd rather wait a while until we can be more confident that they will go ahead. If you sign up to our mailing list on our website though, you will be the first to hear of new dates when we do start scheduling them.
It will be nice to see actual, living people for a change so hopefully we'll see you soon!
