SHEEP & SHAWL IS FOR SALE!
HOW TO KEEP SHOPPING WITH SHEEP & SHAWL
Yes, Sheep & Shawl in South Deerfield, MA is for sale – ideally by the end of March 2021. Gift certificates must be used by March 31! Call or email to ask for help – I can bring items to the door for curbside shopping. We still have handmade goods in the shop – handknits, handwoven towels, MA-made throws & scarves. Etsy will not allow shop-specific gift certificates, so browse on Etsy, then call 413-397-3680. Unfortunately with Covid cases still going up, you must call or email email@example.com or use the Etsy shop (24 hrs/day) to make your purchases, with curbside pickup or USPS mail. If it becomes safe in the next few months to open again to one or two at a time I will be sure to do so.
I have loved being connected to you all with knitting, classes, events, and other fibery goodness for the past 7+ years. It is bittersweet, but it’s time for me to “move on.” I will be in the shop as usual to fill your orders and help you with knitting questions through the end of March.
I am retiring and my fervent wish is for someone to buy Sheep & Shawl and continue it as a local yarn shop in its current location. I am honored to be a part of the fiber artists and vendors in this area and I’ve worked hard to build the business and community connections. I know the shop is well loved – thank you all!
If you or anyone you know is interested, please contact me as soon as possible at 413-397-3680 or firstname.lastname@example.org
. A prospectus is available with more details about purchasing the shop. I am happy to give advice to the new owner and come back to teach.
If I have no promising offers to purchase the business by the beginning of March, I will consider offers for purchase of the entire
inventory and furniture. If I do not sell these by the end of March, I will consider selling bulk lots from my inventory and individual furnishings.
Otherwise, the shop will close its doors March 31 and continue as an online-only shop on Etsy. Sheep & Shawl has a 5-star following on Etsy. If you haven’t been to visit there yet – sheepandshawl.etsy.com – it’s worth your while!
Curbside pickup and shipping will continue. The Sheep & Shawl Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/sheepandshawl/ is your easiest way to shop, and you can message me for curbside pickup (I refund your shipping costs).
I work alone, including restocking the shop, relisting on Etsy, and filling orders and answering questions from both shops. I will try to answer your phone calls and emails as soon as possible. Thank you!
I am listing more items on Etsy weekly and still filling your orders by:
- phone – 413-397-3680 – and
- email – email@example.com
- with curbside pickup or mail delivery
- The Etsy shop – sheepandshawl.etsy.com – allows you to see actual colors and quantities of yarns (books, magazines, buttons) that I’ve been able to list online (much quicker than a phone call if you don’t need advice or items not yet on Etsy). See the new web page in the menu above – “What’s on Etsy” – to see what I’ve added. If you want to pick up your Etsy order, just message me in your order and I’ll refund your shipping costs and set up a pickup time with you. (Etsy does not have a “pickup in shop” option.)
