This is for those of you wonderful people who support my handmade shop Aidie's Hideaway. I can't even tell you how much I love that this little adventure of mine has grown into a business and just how much I appreciate all the people I have met along the way.
The whole thing just makes me smile.
I hope you all will be supportive when I announce that I am going to close the Etsy shop until May 1st for a much needed break.
Our family has decided to move and we hope to list our home next month. For us, this will be a big move. I am the fourth generation to own our 1/2 acre property here in Orange. There is a lot to do between two homes and a two story workshop/garage that are all part of the property. The workshop/garage is filled with generations of family history and I am finally going to be forced to go through not only my dad's things, but my great-grandfather's things. I will have to decide what to keep and what to donate or sell. And that is just one very small, although big to me, part of all that we must do before listing.
Now back to the shop... I will leave the Etsy shop open for the rest of today in case anyone out there was about to purchase something. Once it is closed I will still be working... I have at least a week's worth of orders that need to be created and shipped. The only orders that can still be placed during this time are from garland subscribers. I will still create time to fill those orders as they come in via email. Lastly, if I get the itch and just have to create something during the shop closure, I will list it on Instagram as a flash sale item.
Thank you all for being so supportive of this little business of mine.
