How making our own Chopping blocks diversified what we can create and offer.
This holiday season was hugely successful for us. I can honestly say we were totally unprepared, and have learned the hard lessons to be better prepared next year. When Cyber Monday came with an abundance of orders, we realized we had more than we could handle to fulfill orders in time for Christmas. One month out, we could no longer promise Christmas delivery. That was a hard pill to swallow, but we never want to make promises we can't keep. We aren't a Best Buy or a Macy's where we can afford to take your order and then send an email two weeks later saying "sorry, can't fulfill your order." We are small and every promise counts. We hope those of you that had wanted to order with us, but were unable to because of our Christmas cutoff, will come back for future gift purchases. That being said, we did produce some amazing gifts for people, a lot of which were customers own creations. I wanted to showcase some of these fun and amazing designs on our blog! These are just a few, and I will have more to show later.
