Thanks For Sharing!We Hope Hope Floats Hello all! I really wasn’t ready for one of the most destructive hurricanes ever on record to be moseying in our general direction. While it is still conceivable that the storm may track in a more northerly direction while it is still farther east of us, that likelihood grows less with every passing hour.… Read more →

Taking a Vacation Break

Last summer when O Deer Mercantile closed down for a couple of weeks, it was because we were… Moving! One of the most daunting words in the English language, I think. Since then— well, we’ve been busy. So, as August hits Central Florida with the full force of its energy sapping heat and humidity, we’ve decided to take a break for a week or so. Go to the beach, do some things we’ve been wanting to, sit by the pool, and just generally rest. 

I’m not closing the Etsy Shop. I am perfectly willing to pack and ship on my way to the beach or lunch. But I probably wont list anything new, or spend all the time I spend posting to social media and the blog, etc. Just taking a breather.

Be back in a week or so, hopefully raring to go…

Happy Summertime!!!!
