saying Goodbye to our Etsy Shop

Hey, I have some important shop news! Please read this! 📚 After many months of thinking about this, I’ve decided not to open the Etsy shop back up after we close for Christmas. It’s been so fun to share so many bookish creations with you over the past year and a half but I’ve lost sight of what I really started Tea with Tolkien for, and I’ve been so busy with orders (which has been a good problem) that I haven’t been as present for my family and myself honestly as I need to be. 📚 The last day open will be December 20th. After that, my book will still be available (and hopefully internationally soon) and I’m sure in the future I’ll be able to offer a product here or there for a limited time, but I have so many amazing plans for Tea with Tolkien and I just can’t do everything. I hope you’ll understand and if you were waiting to order something, please just keep in mind the December 20th closing date. We will also be having big Tea Tuesday (11/20) and a Small Business Saturday (11/24) sales, so mark your calendars for those. And I hope you’ll stay along with us as we continue our journey as a Tea with Tolkien community! I also wanted to mention our patreon page — www.patreon.com/teawithtolkien — where we’ll be doing a few book giveaways soon and there are some fun rewards for becoming a member! I love you guys! Thank you so much for your support and understanding.
