Covid gave me an opportunity to reflect on this passage of time, my own safety and security, and how I might re-imagine the years remaining of my life. So, I prepare now to move from North Carolina to New Mexico this spring. My collection storage bins are full (still) and I need to reduce the things I will move. These are new, never worn, one-of-a-kind pieces from my extensive personal collection and also include recent purchases I made to support the artisans. Your purchase helps to support our weavers and embroiders who we usually visit each year on the textile tours. Covid has changed all that. We send funds immediately when you make a purchase!
I will take 20% off the listed price for each piece and reflect this in the invoice I send you. Price listed does not include the discount!
To Buy: Please email me email@example.com with your name, mailing address and item number. I will mark it SOLD, send you a PayPal link to purchase and add $12 for cost of mailing. Please DO NOT SELECT buying goods or services — so we don’t pay commissions. We also accept Venmo and I can send you a Square invoice (+3% fee) if you don’t use PayPal.
