I am not ready to re-open my Etsy shop as I had major surgery the end of January and recovery has taken longer than expected -- especially with lifting and silk-screening. I am overwhelmed with the Coronavirus pandemic and not feeling very Happy Fantastic. Each day gets better and I DO hope to re-open my Etsy shop the end of June.
The Burlington Farmers' Market opens on July 6th. Due to the Covid Global Pandemic, things will look and feel VERY different. The market will be primarily pick up only... we have A LOT of restrictions we need to follow in order to keep Vermont safe and healthy. It is HIGHLY preferred (and in some cases the ONLY option), to pre-order your items on line and quickly pick the up at the market.
I will be returning to the Burlington Farmer's Market on July 18. I need time to re-vamp my online shop and my market booth to adhere to the new health and safety standards. I will typically be at the Market once a month as many artists/craft vendors will be rotating a limited number of spots.
If you are in dire need of a Happy Fantastic item, please message me. I get overwhelmed by e-mails, so it is OK to message me 2-3 times! I do have a lot of items made and ready to sell, but I haven't had the time and motivation to photograph and post everything online. :)
Until then, PLEASE, listen to global medical experts and make intelligent choices. Keep at least a 6 foot distance from people. Wear a mask when shopping, when you have a cough, or when you cannot physically distance yourself from people. Stand up for stigmatized groups, advocate for universal health care, be kind to essential employees, and speak up to keep people safe and healthy.
Have a Happy Fantastic Day!!!
Please be patient as I continue work on my website!
