Congratulations, You Survived!
You will get no argument here, 2020 has been a tumultuous ride. After years of traveling the country and plying our wares at shows, CoVid presented a huge challenge. In the blink of an eye, the world changed. We went from freely mobile to lock down. Smiles and nods were replaced with suspicious glances and fear. Small brick and mortar businesses across America were shuttering their doors and closing up, many permanently.
Uncertain times have a way of challenging us as individuals and, as a people. They test our mettle. Will we stand together or become divided and fall? Will we huddle alone, cloistered in our fear or face our challenges; find a way, and rise to the occasion? We each have a choice.
Although it seemed counter-intuitive, we took a leap of faith. We opened our first ever, brick and mortar. Thus far it has been promising. We are thankful for the support and encouragement we have received from the community. We look forward to 2021, to better days ahead, and facing the new normal together.
Be Happy, Be Well, Be Blessed
