May 11, 2020

We will remain closed for at least the month of May, from the looks of it.

As you know, Oregon is starting the re-opening process.  The way we understand it, each county is going to need to apply to the state, and be able to fulfill each of three requirements for re-opening.  The last we checked, Lincoln County (where we're located) has not applied.  So we need to remain closed.

Also, it looks like there will be certain requirements for businesses that do re-open, such as being able to maintain adequate space between people.  This may prove especially difficult for us - we don't have a lot of space for people to walk by each other, or a good way to allow for one-way traffic.  Plus, that may well eliminate the possibility of letting people watch the glassblowing.   

Once opening is finally allowed for non-essential businesses, we're going to be faced with some tough decisions.  Like many other businesses on the coast, we rely on the busy summer season to get us through the rest of the year.  With limits on how many people we can have inside at one time, that busy season will be trimmed severely.  Plus, our expenses have been going up dramatically over the last couple years, as the number and accessibility of glass suppliers have changed and propane prices have gone up.

We've certainly appreciated all of your support through these years, and hope that we'll be able to see you all again soon - healthy and in person.  In the meantime, we are still taking orders through our website.

Thanks, and take care.
