Beloved Readers,

The health and safety of our staff and customers is our top priority. 

At this time, we are in the process of determining if events will be allowed to proceed, reschedule, or cancel under limited terms. We will announce any cancellations or changes on our events page and on our social media accounts. We will temporarily close our store on Mondays and Wednesdays.

We are taking extra safety measures, including:

  • Extensive cleaning and increased frequency of disinfecting procedures for all high-touch areas.

  • Ensuring all staff are educated in washing and cleaning protocols.

  • Monitoring the health of our staff and enforcing those who are symptomatic to stay home.
