Black Friday & Cyber Monday Small Business Weekend Deals!

img_1847

 

Hello! A quick and heartfelt word from us on this Black Friday / Small Business Saturday / Cyber Monday holiday gift buying weekend. We are just a two-person studio and every single purchase is incredibly meaningful to us. Each & every single one. We’ve met many thousands of lovely people in person at shows and those encounters are warm and wonderful. (We love to nerd out about art!) But it’s not always as simple to have that same connection with an online transaction. We know, we get it. So we just wanted to take a moment to say how much it means to us that with every purchase, someone is living with our work in their homes, offices, or even school rooms.

As a big thanks, we love to do some Holiday Sales & Deals, so here you go friends! Feel free to use any of these coupon codes on our Bigcartel Shop here or in our Etsy Shop here.
