Most summers, I'd feel a bit tired from all the outdoor arts & craft shows as I start prepping for the busy fall/holiday season.
Of course, everything is different this year. Art shows and craft fairs started cancelling in mid-March and have continued. Every show from April to December has cancelled. There have even been cancellations into the first four months of 2021.
No art shows and craft fairs means I have had lots of time in the kitchen to create... but I have no events to share my new caramel or chocolate confections with everyone.... and that's been tough, both financially and emotionally as I miss interacting with both customers and other vendors.
With this all being said, there has also been changes personally due to all the changes around us. We have moved and are getting established with hopes to restart with a fresh beginning.
I have decided to take some time off to refocus and decide the direction that I want to take JWade Confections. I want to still be able to create wonderfully delicious artisan caramels, toffees, and chocolates and provide them to the great customers we have had over the past five plus years.
Watch for our restarting, hopefully by holiday but surely by spring 2021.
Be safe and thanks for being a customer in the past and again in the near future.
