I hope this mail finds you all well and coping with the daily changes that we face at this unprecedented time.
I’ve received many, many emails from companies this past week, telling me how the Coronaviurs will affect how they trade and in turn I thought I would pop a quick post to let you know how these changes are affecting us.
As you will probably know we are a ‘kitchen table’ business, not so much small as micro. That’s one of our unique points, we make every candle from scratch, we sterilise & bottle every hand wash, we box, wrap & post everything by hand. It’s what we do and it’s one of the many things we LOVE about our little business.
We have sadly had to cancel all our markets & workshops for the foreseeable future. The speed of this pandemic has taken many by surprise, us included. The Urban Makers Pop Up Shop we were in has sadly had to close its doors today and we can only imagine that it’s a matter of time before our other stockists are forced to make equally difficult decisions.
We have a selection of candles, hand wash & lotions listed on our website, all ready to go. If you’re looking for a pick me up gift, a little treat to see yourself or a friend through the next few weeks, where we are being actively encouraged to stay home, then head over to the website.
Now more than ever the small businesses of the UK need your support. I’d urge you when you go to buy your coffee or pint of milk to support the small local shops, if you can’t visit friends & family support the online community of small businesses who will get that gift out to them.
We’re working behind the scenes to get candle making kits online and a You Tube video to go with them, something to occupy our hands & minds whilst we weather this stormy time.
We know we can get through this together
