Local Delivery and Updated Shop Hours

Here in Athens, our Mayor and Commission just approved emergency measures to help flatten the curve and stop the spread of coronavirus. Thankfully, our government is taking public health seriously, and gladly, we were already doing everything that businesses are now required to do.

Because our retail shop supplies artists with the tools they need to work from home (thank you, Section 10.f.xiv), the changes we announced yesterday on Instagram and Facebook still stand.

So here's the latest for us and what it means to you:
