"So How's This Going to Work?" is a question I keep asking myself. I'm moving to California in just a few very short weeks; June 8, to be exact. Right now, I'm in the midst of finishing some new work for my galleries, filling a few Etsy orders, and making a couple of custom pieces. Once I'm done at the bench, I can start to pack. I will take my hand tools and my favorite books, and that's probably it. I'm not going to move my entire studio across the country because I will have access to all sorts of tools at school, but I won't have a studio over the summer. So, this brings me to begin to answer this question of "how":
1. I have reduced the number of galleries and shops I'm working with. Please visit Facebook to view a complete list. I will try to keep making work for these places while I'm in school, but I have no idea how demanding school will be. I'll see what's realistic as my schedule unfolds in the fall...more changes may have to be made.
2. And what about Etsy? I've been rolling this over and over in my mind and I have yet to come to a definitive conclusion. My plan for now is to keep the shop "as is" for the following week and everything will be 25% off as a last hurrah before I go. To take advantage of the sale please use the following coupon code - MOVING2015. This will be your last chance to order most of what is currently available, at least for the summer. I will remove everything from the shop when I move, except the pieces I still have in stock. These will be available all summer long, ready to ship within a day of ordering. Once I start school after Labor Day, well, I'm still trying to figure that out... Again, I think I need to see what happens at school first, see what I can realistically handle before making any concrete decisions. I would love to keep the shop open, but I just don't know if that's possible...again, more changes may come.
So things are pretty hectic around here as I prepare to move. I will keep you posted on my plans and thank you in advance for your patience and support. You are always so good to me! Thank you!
