I hope you are well friends.
This past week has been an emotional roller coaster for me, and I'm sure you've felt it too. This is not the blog post I expected to share with you this month. I had been working on something new and was on track to launch those new items this month. That all seems so unimportant now. So instead, I wanted to fill you in on some adjustments I've made to my cozy little corner of the internet to keep us all safe and healthy during these uncertain times.
First of all, I have closed The Front Porch Pop-Up until further notice and have temporarily suspended the Free Local Pickup shipping option. I'm a firm believer that we shouldn't be going out if we don't have to, so I'm doing my little part to encourage people to stay home.
Secondly, I will continue to accept online orders, but am prepared for that to change if need be in the future. Your safety and trust are first and foremost on my mind. Right now, my family and I are healthy. We are practicing social distancing and washing hands frequently. If any members of my family get sick, I will suspend shipments immediately until we are ALL healthy again. On top of that, certain carriers have already warned customers that their service and shipping times could be affected during this crisis. If I ever get the feeling that the items that you've ordered won't get to you safely and in a timely manner, I am prepared to stop accepting orders until that situation changes.
All my best to you and your family.
