COVID-19 Updates and Community Resources
Our e-commerce shop is operating per normal. I am taking my normal precautions with handwashing and wiping down all surfaces, and also am wearing nitrile gloves for extra protection while preparing your order. At this time, our house is well. If at any time we are showing signs of illness, I will shut down the shop until further notice.
I am still answering messages and emails from 8a to 8p CST. We now have same-day local pickup on ALL in stock items at our home office in Helotes. Previously, we had only offered this for our Baltic amber jewelry. See this listing for info on local pickup.
We are shipping every Monday and Thursday to limit our time away from the home doing USPS drop offs. Use code STAYHOME for free U.S. shipping (for orders $10+ only, please).
Here is a list of free community resources and information we have found to help during the quarantine. I will update this list as much as possible. If you have any resources you would like to share, please Message Us (bottom left hand corner). Thank you!
As these resources are free, please consider making a donation if you can to help with any emergency operating costs. Visit their social media or main websites for more information.
