More good news… Custom order update & auction wrap-up!

Hello, friends! I have more exciting news to share with you tonight. 🙂

First, I am completely caught up on making custom orders, aside from a few pieces needing supplies or requiring something from the customer. The few folks whose orders are affected have been notified, and I’ll have everything needed within a few days to complete those last few orders. I’ve been sharing lots of these new custom goodies on Facebook and will also post them here soon. My estimated turnaround time for custom orders moving forward is 2-6 weeks.

Moving on, it’s time for the post-auction wrap-up, now that all of the auction items have been purchased. There were 60 pieces in this auction; a few did not sell and were returned to the shop with clearance prices. The auction drummed up a total of $705, plus an additional $9 in optional donations to help offset PayPal fees and $10 in additional donations, which will go straight to helping us build our nest egg. After PayPal fees are taken into account, we ended up with a net total of $679.71. As promised, 10% of the funds raised have been donated to True Colors Fund; we rounded up and donated $68.

Every one of you who bid on one or more pieces in the auction — or helped spread the word — has our deepest and most heartfelt gratitude. Without this sum of money coming in at the beginning of the month, we would not have been able to make this donation. We also would have been much more stressed out about basic needs and I would not have been able to spend the past week and a half catching up on custom orders. Thank you so much for your support!

Now it’s time to work on new pieces for the shop, in the hopes that some of them will sell and we’ll be able to keep the $214 in our savings from this event right where it belongs, the seed for our nest egg.

Once again, thank you all! Much love and the brightest of blessings to you.

❤ Bri
