Had you asked us a year ago what we'd be doing right now, sheltering in place due to a pandemic probably wouldn't make the list. But here we are. The brick and mortar shop has been closed for over a month in accordance with state mandates, but we haven't been resting on our laurels. We decided to use this time to rework our website and migrate it to a new server.
While we loved our original website, it wasn't without challenges. At the end of the day, our goal is to serve our customers the best we can and provide a positive experience. Since we had an unfettered block of time, we decided it was time to finally make the switch.
The new website has a similar look to the old one, but it will hopefully be more responsive and have some extra perks. The new website accepts more payment options, faster load times, a more streamlined design, more interactive display options like videos, and should anything happen, we are now supported by a larger e-commerce host that can work quicker to resolve any issues. Behind the scenes, we have better inventory control systems, multiple users can work on the website from different computers, better SEO, and better integration into other platforms (like Facebook and Instagram).
To celebrate the launch of the new website, we've put together some really lovely Inspiration Kits that range in price from $8 to $12. These curated mini-collections are great for jumpstarting your creativity and getting the gears to turn. Each Inspiration Kit has an assortment of materials in different color combinations. If you're like us and find yourself stuck at home, why not keep your hands busy creating with one or more of these kits?
We hope that you will enjoy the new website. Keep your eyes peeled, as we'll be debuting new products and content nearly every day!
