40:27 – Shop News

I’ll be offering free shipping on all US orders this weekend from Friday, 11/27 through Monday, 11/30. No minimum purchase required.

On Saturday, 11/28, I’ll be having a Small Business Saturday sale. Use coupon code SHOPSMALL20 for 20% off any in-stock items in the shop. (This does not include any pre-orders, custom orders, or gift certificates.)

On Monday, I’ll be offering a number of Cyber Monday specials in the shop! I’ll be sending out a newsletter on Sunday with information about those specials (as well as posting them to social media). If you’re not already receiving the FDW newsletter, head over to the website (link below) and click on the link in the top menu bar to sign up! It’s the best way to get news of new items, sales, and other happenings in the shop! (I rarely send out more than one newsletter a week, so you will not be spammed!)

The next regular shop update is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5, at 10 a.m. eastern. More news about that in the next podcast!

I’ve recently updated the FDW shipping policies. You can find the details here:https://www.fibernymphdyeworks.com/faq/shipping/
