New Shopping Options!

New Shopping Options!

Shop Safely With a Private Appointment
 

While small boutiques have been given the green light to reopen starting May 15th, we have decided that for the safety of our customers and staff we would like to start by opening our stores up for Private Shopping Appointments only! 

Private appointments will enable us to ensure social distancing rules and follow all OSHA guidelines. Our staff will be wearing masks and sanitizing high touch surfaces between appointments. We ask that you also wear a mask and sanitize your hands upon arrival (hand sanitizer will be provided).

To schedule your Private Shopping Appointment, please email your availability to us at craftywonderland@yahoo.com and we will get back to you to coordinate a date and time.


 

Shop From Home with a Virtual Shopping Appointment
 

We will continue to offer Virtual Shopping Appointments as well, so you can shop from the comfort of home via FaceTime or Zoom. Email us at craftywonderland@yahoo.com to schedule your appointment! They take approximately 30-45 minutes and we will walk you around our downtown store, show you the things you want to see, and make suggestions if you're shopping for a gift and don't quite know what you're looking for. Then we'll pack it all up for you and can either ship it or you can pick it up at a designated time. It's easy and fun!

 

Curbside Pickup is Now an Option!


If you're shopping online, but want to pick your order up in person, we will now be offering curbside pickup as an option. Enter coupon code LOCALPICKUP at checkout and we will message you to set up a scheduled pick up time!

 

Thank you for all of your support as we navigate this crazy new world!!!
