Most of you already know how much we love what we do at Shop Just Wish. Keeping our many customers in the US and around the world has been one of the greatest blessings in our lives.
Very recently we learned that Jeff has an advanced stage of cancer and it is all we can do to keep up with our current orders. In addition to managing our busy Etsy Shop, the doctor visits, appointments and scheduled medical treatments have taken a toll on our entire family and our finances.
We are NOT going to close our Shop. We absolutely love making our items for you! The beautiful stories surrounding all the life events and happenings that led you to us have always brought us great joy and happiness. When we look back at these precious moments you’ve shared, we know that we have contributed something special in your lives and that means the world to us.
It is difficult to express in words how much all of you, from every corner of the world, mean to us.
As we work through Jeff’s situation, we will be making some changes that will allow us to keep the Shop open while still attending to his important needs. Our “ready-to-ship” items will be clearly marked and identified in our listings … these will be shipped in the time frames indicated as always and there will be no changes for these items.
Our custom and “made to order” items will all be designated as shipping in 6 to 8 weeks. It is possible that we might ship earlier than this, but keeping these items in a time frame we know we can meet is the best possible course for us right now as we work through this difficult time. Please be patient with us as we make the changes to our shop listings.
We have always believed that honesty and truth in our products and every aspect of the process from creation to delivery is the standard by which we will operate. That is exactly why we are sharing this important information with you, our wonderful customers, and asking for your patience and understanding. Your satisfaction is and will remain the most important part of our business.
We will share updates as we learn more and have time to post. Many posts will be from our phone, please forgive us if it is in short hand. Also, if it trails off, it just means that we fell asleep while posting (Yes, it happens around here lately.) and we will edit when we are alert again. :)
Kathryn's sister, who lives out of state, wanted to help. She created a meal train so she could easily have meals delivered to our home and so others could easily help our family. She included a donation button for those who wish to help financially. We have shared the link below. PLEASE DO NOT feel obligated, only share if you feel inspired to do so. HOWEVER, we always want your positive thoughts and prayers during this time!
Shalom, and may God bless you on your own journeys always.
