blue skies and sunshine shop vacation announcement!

Boring business first! Small Earth Vintage will be closed for vacation from Thursday, July 1 until Monday, July 12. I'll be keeping the shop open for purchases, but there will be no shipping during this period. If you wish to purchase an item and have it shipped before we close you'll need to pay for it no later than 12:00 PM noon EST on Wednesday, June 30. All items purchased while we are away will be shipped upon our return on Monday, July 12. (And where will we be? Well, we'll be spending some much-needed and long-overdue time with beloved friends in New York state and New York City!)

I tend to mix it up pretty well in the shop update previews, but I saw a lot of sky blue and sunshine yellow in this one. Enjoy!
