Monday, June 29 Store reopening info http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com At this time I felt the need to let you all know what is happening with the store reopening.<br /><br />We are doing the curbside ordering and I know how difficult it is for all of you to try and figure out what is in the store. I appreciate all the support that you have given me at this difficult time.<br /><br />Many of you are anxious to know when in-store shopping will be available. This is a decision that is weighing on my mind. On the one hand I miss you all so much and want to see you in the store...on the other hand I worry about the health of my family and me. With my husband and me being in our 70's and having some health issues and my daughter having asthma, Feeling safe with customers in the store is a concern. Even though I have taken every precaution, it only takes one person, not knowing they are a carrier, to infect us. <br /><br />With Virginia going to Phase 3, I feel the need to watch the stats for a little while, to feel more comfortable in opening. When I make that decision, I will do so by appointment only...4 people at a time...with 2 hour time slots. I will require masks be worn at all times in the store. There will be no exceptions.<br /><br />Thank you all so much for being here for me and understanding my fears.<br />I will post as soon as I decide on the in-store opening. April 17 2020: Corona Virus update http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com Hope you are all doing well. This is quite an amazing time for all of us. We will get through this together.<br />Just wanted to update you on the craft industry and how it is affecting my store.<br /><br />Because of the lack of walk in business, I have had to put my orders on backorder hold until we have a time frame of re-opening. The companies (vendors) all understand and have assured me that my orders will ship as soon as I inform them that we are ready to go. At that time I expect to have all the new Tim Holtz, Sizzix, Ranger, Stampendous, Penny Black, Taylored Expression, Lawn Fawn, Kaisercraft, and more that were already ordered coming in quickly. <br /><br />I totally understand if you needed supplies and have bought them online from companies that have that capability. I do not. I will keep you all informed as to what is happening.<br /><br />When I do open, I will be asking people to wear masks and social distancing due to the fact that I will not feel safe for my customers or staff until a vaccine is available. <br /><br />Thank you all for your support and please STAY SAFE! I miss you all. February 21 Companies Manufacturing in China http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com Many of our suppliers have contacted us that items manufactured in China are being held up due to the CoronaVirus. Many factories are shut down completely. If items weren&rsquo;t shipped before the ban on goods coming in from China, we will not be getting them in the near future. I have tried to keep up with essential items to make sure I order them from companies before they run out. Many new items that were featured at the current trade show will not be available if not shipped prior to the show. Please be patient and I will keep you informed. New Pricing changes as of January 13, 2020! http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com Due to new pricing structures for stores, I need to change how I handle the 40% off your most expensive item. I can no longer lump stamp and dies together for that 40% off. I will continue to put all paper together but your stamp and die purchases will need to be your <strong>one</strong> most expensive item for the discount. I have tried to keep the pricing the same for as long as possible but I have to change the policy now.<br />Thank you for understanding this change. June is Anniversary Month at the store http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com Hard to believe that it has been 5 years at this location! Let alone 9 years at the previous location for a grand total of 15 years! Wow time flies when your having so much fun!<br /><br />During June, when you check out, you will pick a coin and it will tell you how much you will receive off your total purchase. There are 20, 30, 40 and a few 50% off coins in the pouch.<br /><br />Thank you all so much for making this the best retirement job on the planet. Love you all! New Pricing update! http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com I have always tried to keep my prices as low as possible with very few increases. <br />Many of my vendors have informed me that their prices are going up in the new year.<br />Because of this I will need to increase some of my prices when these vendors increase mine.<br />I am hoping that the price changes will be slight but I just don't know.<br /><br /><br />Paper is the item that I think will be increased. Most companies are charging more come January. I will let you know as soon as I hear.<br /><br />The monthly sale items will remain and the discounts for bags and most expensive item will also remain.<br />A reminder that sales tax is already included in the price. November proceeds donated to charities http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com Every year I donate all the proceeds from November sales to charity. This year, as always, I will be donating to Children's Hospital and Wounded Warrior. <br /><br />I am grateful to Children's Hospital and all the work they do to improve the lives of children with serious illnesses. <br /><br />I also feel that we need to do more for our wounded veterans.<br /><br />This year I have been donating a portion of every month's proceeds to the Humane Society in hopes that animals can have a better life.<br /><br />Thank you all for making this possible! How pricing is done http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com Many people have been wondering how the pricing is done at the store.<br /><br />First:&nbsp; I price items by the cost to me when they arrive. This is the reason why some items change in price. It may be due to the shipping costs or a rise in the original price.<br /><br />Second: The sales tax is included in the price. This is why some items may be a little bit higher than an online price.<br /><br />Third: I try to give you the best price possible so the discounts are taken at checkout. Email and Messaging Info http://www.goldenshillpapercrafts.com Just a reminder that I very rarely get a chance during the day to check my emails or messages.<br />If you need to get in touch with me for a quick response, please either call or text me at 703-298-7688.
