The One Where Everything Changed……..
April! And we had big plans to launch the Fox & Mabel Potting Shed with our new outdoor space. But, like everything else at the moment, we’ve had to press ‘pause’ for now. We miss Gorgeous Towers and seeing all of your faces for coffee and cake and chat! But it’s OK! It really is. We’re adjusting well to the new normal – Martha is ‘homeschooling’ her two and spending lots of time doing online workouts with IronZuu. Moira has pruned the life out of the apple trees, made some pork pies and has also been working out virtually with Ady Watts and his team. We’re both going to look like racing snakes when we reopen! (Not!)
Anyway, none of this is about the two of us! How are you doing? Thank you to so many of you who ordered our Emergency Gorgeous packs. Here’s hoping they make the weekend a little better.
That leads us nicely to our plan! You’ve been fabulous at asking us to send out birthday gifts to loved ones, or little ‘pick me ups’ for friends. Or even just something for you! And we’ve chatted A LOT about the right thing to do at this time. Is it right to be sending what could be called ‘non-essentials’ out in the mail? And we always said we’d never go online because we love connecting with you at Old Market. But times are different so we’re going to be launching Gorgeous By Post – at least while this is all going on. What do you want to see in the collection? What would bring a smile to your day if the postie delivered a package to your door?
A few pointers…..we’re going to be posting everything just once a week (Wednesday) to keep trips to the bare minimum. Orders need to be over £25 so that we can chuck in postage & packing. We’ll happily add a note to the parcel so you can share the love with whoever it’s intended for -we promise to use our best writing for those! And everything will be unbreakable – that one just makes us less nervous! 🙂
Stay safe. Stay well.
