Hi to all our Paper Flourish Family,
Due to the COVID-19 and the recommended isolation through March, April and the foreseeable future, Paper Flourish has not been the bustling hive of activity that it usually is. We have had plans for some time to do maintenance to the inside of the store, and given the slower pace in the store, now is an opportune time for us to pull on our overalls, get out the toolboxes, and coerce a few strong males to help with some heavy lifting.
We plan to give our mixed media, paint, ink sections of the store a face-lift, maybe even get some paint onto the inside of the powder room door and replace in part our tired looking floor coverings. It has been difficult to plan a time to be able to do these upgrades whilst the shop is open. As we envisage and hope by the end of May to perhaps see some bounce and activity back in the store, the intention is to move in Monday, that is tomorrow 27/4/2020, with all the necessary persons and equipment and get started on the job at hand.
We are sorry for this inconvenience, but we believe for the long-term all will see the benefit in doing this work now whilst it is a bit quieter. It is our hope we will finish the work before this coming weekend, but we will keep you posted as soon as we can open for business again.
This short interval will not see any changes to the way we are currently operating. Lesson releases will go out in May as planned. The On-line store is open 24/7 and parcels will be sent out daily. If you require an In-store pick-up please shop On-line, then ring the store on 08 8262 2571 to organise a suitable time for collection. We will not let anyone go without their glue, tape or any other essentials.
A little birdie was tweeting to me today!!! Paper Flourish has some big things planned next week.
Watch this space!!
Emma and Zoom
Emma’s Wednesday morning ZOOM class will go ahead as arranged. Those attending Em's class and who are yet to collect their packs, will be able to contact Em in store or direct on Tuesday. Em will be in her work clothes and lifting her weight in the mixed media section until 2pm. This way you will be ready for her class Wednesday 29th April.
