THANK YOU CUSTOMERS - The South Napa earthquake epicenter was a scant 4 miles from my house - and it was a very challenging time on and following August 24 and you all were so terrific. I just can't say enough, I have the best customers in the world! I was certainly doing my best amidst a power outage, two destroyed post offices and just the general shock of an event of this kind. Even now, our post office is still struggling, as they are working out of one partially repaired structure and cramming their full staff into one building. Special thanks to some of my custom order clients, who really hung in with my through it all, namaste.
NEWS FOR 2015: Just a note customers that I will have a slightly reduced work schedule in 2015 on aprons as I am embarking on the writing of a novel, which will take up some of my time in a different way than past years. I will keep more of a 'shop hours' schedule for talking to customers and taking custom work. More on this in 2015.
Yes, I can personalize! Machine EMBROIDER names, initials or business name just about any apron, $4.50. Message me BEFORE you purchase. And for security, try a pearlized snap on any, or many, pockets for $1.50 each. For keys and ID badges, D-rings, $1.50. Interested? Message me for details or use the special listings in the shop for these items or leave a message in the sale notes when checking out.

Note: Overseas customers -- it can take from 10 working days to one month or more! to receive your apron, depending on what part of the world you live and how your particular country mail delivery operates. Also keep in mind some countries will open up the entire package as it makes it's way through customs. Just sometimes though.

Another note: If paying by Paypal's ECheck, know that the clock on your apron officially starts when the the check clears, which is 3-5 days after your apron is ordered.
