How The Corona Virus Crisis affects us.
Updated: Mar 31
Our business is based on a collective of self employed individuals working hard to provide you with an interesting collection of quality items. Of course non of us are immune to the virus or the effects of the crisis, with the borders between the Czech Republic and Germany closed it has proved a challenge to keep the supply of stock going. We have however managed to overcome some of the problems this faces, by walking to the border and handing over the stock in banana boxes with masks and gloves.
Most of our work is carried out in our own homes and so the general public are not being put at risk by us continuing to work, and in fact the Czech Republic has placed far stricter precautions in public places as most of Europe ensuring that no one is placed in a position of danger. I don`t intend to capitalize on the online purchasing power available now that most unessential shops are closed, on the contrary I have introduced a discount on my stock.
Unfortunately I have been informed by Deutsch Post/ DHL who are our carriers that they will be suspending the standard economy class of postage to USA as from the 01.04.2020 due to the decrease in available flights. They are only offering express delivery at a higher price. I have decided to absorb this cost myself. This will most definitely effect the shipping between Germany and USA, Asia and Australia. European shipping is continuing as normal at this point, however it would be best to check your local post office services, as they are the people who conduct the final delivery.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have supported me as a small business over the past few weeks as non of us are in positions to obtain government assistance.
I wish you all good health and enjoy browsing from your own homes.
