There are a lot of small businesses who are cutting back hours or closing (hopefully just temporarily) because of the virus. I saw a suggestion to purchase a gift card from your favorite shops in a show of support. Here are three good places that I hope will still be open when we figure how how to navigate life again.
A local yarn shop who will still have shopping online.
A fantastic independent bookstore that hosts amazing author talks and is currently offering free shipping so you can shop without going out.
A local tea and coffee shop with the best ceremonial green matcha tea latte, currently taking online orders and offering curbside delivery because they cannot have table service.
Another good thing – our libraries are closed but they have extended due dates on loans so I have plenty of time to finish the stack I picked up just before all the distancing mandates came out. We are in this together friends.
