***IMPORTANT INFO BELOW****
We would like to truly thank every customer over the last 9 years, we have been so blessed and honored to get to know every one of you. We have prided ourselves on delivering a top quality product made and sourced here in the USA by a VETERAN OWNED company. Thank you all for being on this journey with us.

In the last 8 years we have not increased our prices once, and we have been fighting to try not to do so. Unfortunately these last few years there have been tariff increases on imported aluminum which has caused our aluminum supplier to increase their prices on American sourced aluminum. Transaction costs, Shipping cost increases, and just increases on all our costs across the board have caused us to reevaluate our prices. We are very distraught to have to increase our prices, but in order to keep our doors open and maintain our service we must do so. (This note is from our increase in 2021 and have plans to increase again)

We will now be offering free shipping to help offset some of this cost. Please know we do this with a very heavy heart and have put this off for as long as possible, just typing this we are fighting back the tears. As small business owners yourselves we are sure you can relate that times are very tough, and all through COVID we stayed open and avoided increasing prices and endured the losses. We truly built this shop out of a need, hard work, and pure love. We truly appreciate each and every one of you and hope you can understand this difficult transition. Thank you so much truly.
With love
Maribel & Keith
