I've got some BIG news to share today! We are moving back to our home state of Florida!
At the end of September we will be packing up and heading out out some 2,500 miles to our new home and temporary studio in Winter Park, FL. If you don't know, Winter Park is a wonderful city in the greater Orlando Metro area. You may or may not know, but Cesar and I are from Florida. I am from Pensacola and then spent 6 years in Orlando finishing college and working. Cesar is originally from Puerto Rico, but moved to Orlando with his family when he was 5. He and I met there and then I got a job offer in the other Orange County, so we moved out to Long Beach in 2007. Fast forward 6 years and we are about to embark upon our next adventure! We are super excited about moving back home, being closer to our families, and getting to re-discover the great state of Florida. We also learned about an exciting new studio space opportunity that we hope will work out! sass&peril and The Paper Cub Co. were born out here in California, and have seen some major growth in the past year. I don't think I would be where I am today without the support of the handmade and design communities out here and we will miss it! On the other hand, I feel very fortunate to be able to work from anywhere so when Cesar was offered a job in our homestate we couldn't say no. We've been so grateful for everyone's support and friendships, and we look forward to continuing to see many of you at future craft fairs and tradeshows! For my Floridians, we look forward to re-connecting and also getting to be a part of the rapidly growing art and design scene in the Orlando area.
A few notes on the shops and also for wholesale ordering, we will be closing down this online shop and both of our Etsy shops (sass&peril and The Paper Cub Co.) on Sept 20th. Current retailers, you have been notified so please check your email for our detailed announcement. We will take our last online orders Sept 20th and ship them out on Sept 21st. We will re-open the shops 2 weeks later or once we are moved and unpacked. We will continue to accept wholesale orders for both lines during the move, but we will keep you updated on your ship date. If you're thinking of ordering soon, I suggest you do so right away so that we can get your order wrapped prior to the move. The Paper Cub Co.'s Holiday 2013 collection is available now to wholesalers with a second ship window after Oct 15th so please make note.
If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Surely, there will be a few bumps as this is a huge move, but just know we will do our best to get back up and running smoothly. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to all the excitement and possibilities this new chapter will bring! Much more to come :)
