As usual, I will be closed for the week of 4 July, for a run back home to stock up on supplies like dirt dauber nests and bones and bugs and other bits. It’s not usually a vacation, precisely, but I *am* usually without regular, predictable email access when I’m back home. Yes, there are parts of the country where you *cannot get DSL* (or cable) and I’m from one of those parts of the country 🙂
Normally, I have no trouble getting all in-house orders out before I leave town, but I found out very last minute that I have some other professional business to take care of out of town first, before I head over to do the family and homestead stuff. So I am having to close with a bit less notice and a bit more rushing about than usual.
So Karma Zain Spiritual Supplies will be closed from 26 June to 7 July, and will reopen on the 8th. I *will* check email at least once while I’m out of town, but I can’t promise lengthy responses – it might be via smartphone, which means you won’t get more than a sentence or two until I get back home. As usual, any work like honey jars or sour jars that are already booked to be continued during that time will be taken care of by my assistant, and vigil lights will be checked and notes made as applicable. Any work *not already booked as of now* will be begun when I reopen on the 8th. Any orders placed prior to the 25th that *can* be prepped and shipped by Wednesday will be; any other orders will enter processing when I reopen on the 8th. (That is just prior to the usual 10 business day handling time anyway, so it’s not going to present much of a delay for most types of orders that don’t involve sewing, painting, or significant altar work.)
Sorry for the last minute notice – I thought I had four more entire days before I had to go out of town, but something really important came up. I won’t talk about it here yet, but it could mean a pretty big change depending on how some things go; I’ll keep you guys posted of any potential disruptions, and if you want to cross your fingers, light a candle, or say a prayer to send some luck in my direction this week, that would be really cool 🙂
