We also have this very special candle that local candle company Candle Crest, just literally 39 seconds ago dropped off to burn the next couple of weeks.We are open until 5pm today which is when we will have to close our storefront for a couple weeks which is 100% the right thing to do to help stop the spread of this virus.We are very sad to not see people every day but we are absolutely in agreeance with this measure.We have some very special rules in place today and have been going above and beyond the last 2 weeks to make sure we can continue to be a store that survives and that you love when this is all over. (We have some ideas of how you can love us through it too but we will put out info on that later)TODAY:- 4 people in the store at a time, please stay 6 ft away from each other. If there are 4 people we will ask you to wait outside or in your car for a bit. Thanks for understanding.- we will absolutely ask you to wash your hands as you come in.- we are wiping down screens, doors, and all surfaces possible to us every half hour.We will close our walk-in retail at 5pm. We appreciate your love and support of ALL local businesses right now. This is an uncertain time for everyone. Businesses, people, moms, dads, grandparents, entrepreneurs, the workforce.
