Upcoming Shop Closures
- We will be closed for approximately one week in March after the second load of Peak Bamboo arrives; we’ll post dates as soon as possible. We will still accept orders through the webstore during this closure, but it will delay shipments and craft work on custom items.
- We will be closed June 7th through June 25th, inclusive. This is our summer break for family time, and it’s something we’ll be doing every year from 2017 forward. The shop is 100% closed for business during this span, so please plan your orders accordingly. And thanks for your understanding! I love this company, but it chugs along keeping me busy seven days a week all year, so this is the break I need to keep from burning out. If you need custom items in June, I STRONGLY suggest ordering before May 7th for certain shipment before the June closure. Thanks! - Russ

There’s also a bit of soapbox grandstanding on the themes of acknowledging debt, saying thanks, and teaching others as the only true path forward.
