I have heard that Vacation Mode puts your google shopping all out of whack. You can also just deactivate all of your items and put a note in your announcement or avatar.

Just beware that when you put your shop on vacation mode it is removed from google shopping. In order to get them back on you have to re-activate every item.

Thanks, Your shop is awesome too! :) Mine is super empty right now because I'm too busy sipping cocoa and stringing popcorn for the tree. LOL. I should go into Vacation Mode, too. ;)

Aren't you only in Google Shopping if your shop is syndicated? It should affect anything if you aren't syndicated, right??

If it's just for a few days and you'll be able to check your email you might want to consider putting something in your announcements and then just keep an eye out. Better as others have said for google shopping.
