Bonjour dearest friends,
We recognize things are changing rather quickly. Our Springtime in Paris market is beautiful and ready to open it's doors, but alas, it appears we will not open in person at our scheduled April market unless the current crisis situation improves significantly by then.
Community needs and safety come first. If you hoped to attend our regular April Springtime in Paris market, due to the needs of our community, -unless the issues related to the corona virus greatly improves - we won't open our physical shop, but rather move to our virtual business with a French market website we are creating.
We will open our online French market beginning Thursday April 2 at 8:00 am and throughout our market dates (We will publish details about the online French market at a later date.).
On our online French market, we hope to feature our specialty handmade treasures, vendor creations, and French goods. We know this is not like attending our markets in person, but if you cannot visit in person and we can't be together, we sure hope you will visit us "virtually". Details about our online French market web link will be provided in a later post (about 2 weeks from now).
Naturally, things could change even further from where they are now, they could quickly improve or get worse, but we will operate from what we currently know and understand. We will update you again should further changes be required.
Many of you have reached out to ask how you can be of support to keep our doors open. Here is what you can do for us: 1) Take good care of yourselves and loved ones, so you can return to us as customers happy and healthy. 2) Do what you can to care for your neighbors and community and purchase only what you need to ensure necessities are available for everyone. 3) Shop online, not just with us, but with any small business in ways that feel comfortable for you. In our small effort to help others, we will also shop with local businesses and we will donate a portion of our online proceeds to Second Harvest food bank.
We adore each and every one of you and want you all to take care of yourselves and your family first. Hey, and let's stay connected on Facebook and Instagram! We always love your ideas and input.
Merci beaucoup for all the support you give to Confectionique and to each other. Sending a virtual kiss, kiss.
Anastasia and Adam
