O Deer—A Two Week Vacation

Okay… More Vacating than Vacay


O Deer We're Moving- But first, A Vacation!


Instead of featuring items for sale at our Etsy Shop this week, I am making an announcement. As of Friday August 5th, 2016, we will be one week from closing on our new house. Along with that closing comes the daunting task of relocating our entire household. I am gratified that it is a local move this time rather than the interstate ballet we had to dance on our last move. Truth is though, that several years living in this relatively large house on acreage that includes Garden House, Barn and Tractor Shed has resulted in us accumulating more stuff. Now, we are relocating to a home in a subdivision in town, and that is a little daunting.

I am confident that we will manage, but the time constraints and need to get my Etsy stock organized and packed, has decided me on taking a short vacation from our shop. O Deer Mercantile will close on Friday (August 5th) and we will plan on reopening on Friday (August 19th).

Moving is being harder than I expected, so 2 more days. I will try to reopen August 21st! 

The new house has a large bonus room over the garage that will become the new O Deer Headquarters— office, warehouse, sewing room and studio for Gaia and I. We are certainly looking forward to it, but we have a great deal of work to do to realize our plans. Over the next few weeks, we will be making other changes in how we run and promote our business. A new home heralds the beginning of a new cycle for us, so we hope to take full advantage of the momentum.

Also, even in the midst of preparing to move, we have been working hard to get a whole batch of new/old vintage items logged into our database and photographed. We hope to have a lot of fun new stuff for you in the next couple of months.

O Deer Mercantile will continue to process orders for the next two days, so if you have your eye on anything, drop by. I will ship your orders out by Monday August 8th. Since I will be very busy these next couple of weeks, I don’t expect to post to this blog until the dust begins to settle. Thanks for stopping by!

Till Next Time…
