Like you, we are closely monitoring the rapidly changing events tied to the COVID-19 pandemic locally and throughout the world.

The safety and well-being of our customers, employees, and their families is our highest priority. Following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local and national health organizations, we have taken the following precautionary measures to provide a safe and clean environment for our collectors and employees:

  • Encourage staff to stay home if they, or their family, are not feeling well, safe, or distressed.
  • Increased both the frequency and the degree of cleaning, including common surfaces like the checkout areas, computer terminals, restrooms, door handles, and phones.
  • Have hand sanitizer readily accessible at the registers.
  • Provided hand sanitizer for our entire staff and will continuously update them on the health guidelines.
  • Provide gloves and masks to our production team.

This is an unprecedented time that is going to have long-lasting effects for many individuals, small businesses, and global economies. With this in mind, our online store is always open and orders will continue to be shipped in a timely manner. If you need normalcy, our retail gallery will remain open for up to 25 healthy guests at a time to experience and enjoy as a way to escape what’s happening in the world. We hope that the Christmas and springtime inspirations decorations will bring some joy to your life.
