We’ll be here from 10-6 if you want to stop in. 🍩💗 I also want to take a moment to thank all of you for your patience during the hiccups we’ve experienced over the past month. From not being able to complete the Indiegogo donor countertop yet, taking an extra day off after Christmas, to being closed on Saturday to deal with our colds ... we just can’t express how much we appreciate your sticking through this transition phase with us! It’s still just Thomas and I working in the shop six days a week, making as many toys as we can, and managing all the other aspects of the business. One of our production employees is down for the count for the foreseeable future, so there are just two people holding down the studio whenever we’re here at the shop. It’s been a lot for our little team to take on, and we truly couldn’t do it without your support and encouragement. Thank you!!

The question is what are you exploring next?
