We are currently on holidays, a whole three weeks of them! As soon as we return home, we leave again for a week of youth camp. Hence, I’m away from my shop and having family adventures for the next four weeks.
It’s a little scary to have my shop in vacation mode for this long; I don’t like the idea that people can’t at least browse my items. Any etsy-seniors out there know if it’s poor etiquette to have a shop announcement that items won’t be able to ship for 4 weeks? I suppose it’s closer to 3 weeks now. I wish vacation mode would allow you to either keep items viewable, like they show up in treasuries, or choose to hide them.
Holidays are going well, we’re having a lot of fun with family and friends. We spent a few hours at the Royal St. John’s Regatta, and had the Monsters face painted and treated him to a little ice cream. The entire perimeter of the lake was packed with people, food venders, shop booths, and all kinds of games/activities. Then there were lots of people happily watching the races. One news station said there were between 40-50 thousand people there, felt more like 100,000. We didn't stay long, getting a stroller through the crowds was enough to break into an anxiety attack, but we did enjoy going and it was the Monsters and Hubbers first Regatta.
