Today is the LAST DAY to Order from Blue Carrot Shop!

I know this post might feel rushed or come as a surprise to people that have followed and supported the Blue Carrot Shop throughout the past few years, but the day has come to close the shop. I won't go into a huge amount of detail, but it would be an understatement to say that a lot has happened in the months since I got back from my two-month stint in New York. Just believe me when I say that I've had the busiest, hardest, most stressful few months of my life.

I don't want this to turn into a complaint post, but there's definitely reasons why you haven't heard much from me lately. Hopefully, that will change fairly soon, along with a few other pretty noticeable changes. For one, after closing the shop, I'll be changing the name of this blog. I do hope you'll continue to follow along, and I promise things will get more exciting than the occasional shop sale announcement. I've already become impatient and changed my Twitter name, so you can start by seeing what I've been up to over there, if you're into that.

But, back to business: today is the LAST DAY to order anything from Blue Carrot Shop. I will be closing the shop at 6 am, on this Friday, May 24th. At that point I will open a massive garage sale containing the remaining shop inventory, so if you live in the Akron/Canton/Cleveland area and are interested, just contact me for the address and details.

So, while the shop may open again (in whatever capacity) in the future, today is truly the last day to order any of the current inventory. The coupon code is, of course, still valid — enter the code "HALFOFF" at checkout to receive 50% off your item.

I want to take the time to thank all of you from the bottom of my (exhausted) heart for patronizing and supporting the shop through the years. It's been incredibly fun and rewarding for me to find homes for wayward vintage items, and you've helped me control my hoarding which is particularly helpful as I prepare to move (more on that later). I apologize that I didn't let you know sooner, but a lot has happened quite quickly and I only now realized that today had to be the last day for the shop.

I hope you'll take a moment to browse the shop one last time, and if you don't make it by 6 am on Friday, you can always contact me to inquire about specific items any time in the near future.

As always, happy browsing, and I'll see you back here soon!
