Hey guys! It’s been about two months since I first posted about decisions about the near future of Crooked Treehouse, and if you’ve been by The Boulevard lately you’ll notice we’re still here. Heh. So, a general update!
First of all, no, we have not yet raised the money to buy our building. I am not calling it a lost cause yet, as there are still some additional possibilities out there. And you can still donate to our Go Fund Me to help us out.
I do want to put out a huge thank you to everyone who helped spread the word in July! Thanks in a large part to you, our sales keep growing every month. The more we sell, obviously the better we can keep this shop in our community. We have loved meeting so many new people these last couple of months, and hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have!
Now, I mentioned in my last post about this that the reason for the shop probably to be closing in the not too distant future is that I’ll soon be buying a house and thus no longer living upstairs. That said… we don’t have a new house yet. So I expect at this point the Treehouse will be here at least through October, and possibly longer. Plus, like I said, there are some other possibilities that may keep the shop open. So I’ll keep you informed!
And in no way are we treating it like we are about to close! We are bringing in new inventory weekly. There are new books, tarot decks, and more that all came in the last month. This week, we’re getting a shipment in of 2020 planners and calendars. Plus we have already ordered some Samhain and Halloween themed items!
On top of that, September and October are our months for Pagan Pride events. We love these! I do a booth with my other business, Wyrd Armouries, with our handmade ritual items. This year, I will also bring a selection of items from the Treehouse as well, to make them available to new people and help promote the shop.
So, look for us in the Wyrd Armouries booth at:
- Frederick Pagan Pride Day, September 14th
- Northern Virginia Pagan Pride Day, September 28th
- Southeastern North Carolina Pagan Pride Day, October 19th
And should our storefront close down the line, our items will still be available, whether it is through events or our website, until we can manage to get a storefront established again.
Thank you for your patience and support as we work this all out!
