We're feeling pretty overwhelmed right now, and I am sure you are too.
As a small business, we’ve definitely felt the hit and things have not been easy for us, but we are grateful that we are safe and healthy. But, like many other small businesses we are holding on tight and working hard together to get through.
Business is as (un)usual for us at the moment. We're still posting out orders and carrying on as usual (from home).
You can still shop our store or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
