My Dear Buttonneers,
My shop is going to be on vacation for an extended time - probably until Jan 2019. My retired husband and I are finally going to do some of the traveling and visiting family that we have put off for so long, and it makes the most sense to keep things closed instead of shutting down/reopening/shutting down over the next few months.
If you have an item underway with me now, it will of course be finished.
Thanks so very much for your understanding. I look forward to seeing you again in 2019!
PS In the meantime you can always reach me at email@example.com
