Our home state of Minnesota has issued a Stay-at-Home order for two weeks, so we are temporarily closing our online shop through April 9th, 2020. Digital gift cards are still available for purchase, as well as our print-to-order bookish merch (as long as those manufacturers can continue to operate).
We are so, so grateful for the outpouring of support these past couple weeks. By placing orders and sending sweet messages of encouragement, you're helping us get through these tough times! It means the world to us as a small business. If you're able, consider supporting other small businesses as well — lots of shops are offering shipping or curbside pickup. Your local indie bookshop might also carry our candles and be happy to get them to you. 😊
We're doing our part to slow down the spread of illness and will continue to social distance and self-isolate. When we resume work on April 10th, Frostbeard will return to basic operations: minimize staff at the studio to ensure adequate distancing, stay informed about updates and follow all the recommended safety guidelines from health officials.
The retail shop at our studio will remain closed until other local businesses start to reopen, and our beloved mascot Tonks will be working from home (but will still make appearances as our new "coworker" on Instagram). The U.S. postal workers will continue to ship (and deliver candles to you lovely folks) and for this they are our heroes.
Hopefully our candles can bring you some comfort in the next few weeks — we've loved seeing all of your cozy home work set-ups. Stay home if you can, and stay safe!
