We're retiring from shows + plus, a shipping update

The title says it all, and it's true. It's time, and it feels right. After 14 seasons, we have decided it's time to wrap up the Craft Show and Christmas Market chapter in our lives and really start to enjoy the holidays. Our kids are getting older and through the years we have loved doing these shows, but the only downside it that it has also meant being away from our kids for a few weeks and for a very fast paced December served with a side of exhaustion for us all. We have been considering this transition for a few years now, but the markets have been so great for us financially, and also for the exposure of our business to keep busy year round with orders, so it has been hard to give up. We always looked at it as though 1 month of unbalanced life, gave us 11 months of balance. It's time to have 12 months of balance per year. :)

We will forever be grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the best juried shows in the country for all these years, and all the life long friends we have made along the way. It truly has been such an honour and something we will never forget or regret. Now we will get to continue to enjoy these shows in a new way, as customers! This decision was made easier for us because of our new business adventure. As my last post explains, we started a new business within our business, Mission Leather Supply. That has taken off to the point where we are kept busy full time with online orders, and has grown to a whole new level since that post. It's a very good thing, and we are really enjoying it and getting to know our newest customers and fulfilling their needs. That said, the One of a Kind Show in Toronto will be our very last holiday show. We will only be there for the first 5 days, from November 22nd through 26th in the 5/6 day section at booth R-21. We will have some special deals, as we would like to sell off as much inventory as possible. Please know that this does not mean we are closing Mally Designs, we just won't be at any of the markets that we usually exhibit at anymore. Going forward, Mally Designs will only be available online, and at a few select retailers. 

Shipping Update: Since we will be away in Toronto for 8 days (exhibiting and then visiting family), we will not be shipping any Mally Designs orders until our return. Shipping will resume as usual within 1-2 business days starting November 30th upon our return, with plenty of time to arrive in time for holiday gifts. 

Thank you to everyone who has visited us over the years at our booth. Your support means the world to us. We hope to see you one last time in Toronto if you're in the area!
