In a few short weeks everything has changed! Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC is recommending social distancing. All of my Spring Craft Fairs have been postponed or canceled.
I am still selling online though but my procedures have changed to protect my customers and family.
When I ship, I will wear gloves. I will also wash the pottery before packaging (which I don’t normally do).
If you elect to do “local pickup”, I’ll package it before you come over and we’ll meet outside.
I am still producing pottery because it’s something I do for fun. Portland Pottery is closed but I have plenty of clay to recycle and I can get some supplies online.
I realize that pottery is a bit of a frivolous purchase, especially for those who can’t work at the moment. For those of us who are still working though, we should try to keep things as normal as possible and support our small businesses when we can.
