Today is the last day before I close the shop for the rest of the year until Monday 4th January. I'm doing this so that I can spend December with my my family, celebrating our daughter's second birthday, relaxing with the various family members who will be visiting and having lots of quiet time getting stuck into my journaling Bible to really focus on advent, Christmas and Jesus - the real reason for the season!
Those of you hoping this contains Black Friday offers... I am sorry to disappoint, but there are too good reasons why I won't have a Black Friday Sale: the first being Grace and Salt Ink is proud to be a British company and Black Friday is not a British tradition. Secondly, it does not fit with business ethos - each Grace & Salt ink product is loving hand made with a lot of love and prayers, which takes a fair bit of time. If I had a massive sale this close to Christmas I would not be able to fulfil those orders, in time for Christmas, without seriously compromising on the Grace & Salt ink quality that you know and love. This is the reason I had my "Christmas Shopping Event" in October - because it gave me plenty of time to fulfil orders at the same high quality before Christmas.
So thank you so much for your support throughout this first year and I look forward to returning in January with the same well loved products, as well as some exciting new ones!
God bless and I hope you and yours have a blessed Christmas!
