Information and Donation
We hope this reaches you at home or at a safe place obsessively washing your hands and wiping down surfaces.
Effective today, and sad to say, the lights will be dark at our boutique at 25 Bond Street until further notice. Small businesses will no doubt suffer during this time. Being one ourselves with only 10 full time employees, our survival depends on sales from our store and website.
That said, we will keep our e-commerce lights on while our team works at home and perfects their social distancing.
We are very lucky. We have been around, we have lots of friends and supporters, and we make a unique, quality product that we hope you will be back for when you are ready.
Less fortunate, and in much more dire shape, are the thousands of kids facing food uncertainty, homelessness and worse with the announcement of Public School closings. We want to help. Until the world feels normal again, we will give 15% of sales to Feeding America www.feedingamerica.org Citymeals on Wheels www.citymeals.org, and No Kid Hungry www.nokidhungry.org from both edie-parker.com, and edieparkerflower.com.
We understand that we are not an 'essential' item during this time. Let's face it, we never are. But, for almost ten years at Edie Parker and Flower, we have been dedicated to hand-crafting small-batch pretty items that make you happy.
Even before this pandemic, our mission was to be a bright spot in a complicated and uncertain world. We make things that are 'For a Good Time'. They lift your spirits, make you smile, and last for generations. Life is serious, but your accessories don't have to be.
While we must be serious now and act in the best interest of our friends, neighbors and larger community, we will try to be a bright spot and bring you levity with product emails, instagram posts, pithy videos and countless other attempts.
So while you are there, spruce up your work from home space with a set of cute coasters, a beautiful tray to organize papers, or an incense holder to clear the energy in your abode. If you live in one of our thirty three legal states and counting (or if you don't, no judgment), buy one of our amazing, handmade Flower items. They will facilitate and elevate your chill-out sesh. So-Cal Flower fans can go to www.sweetflower.com to get our bouquet of cannabis products delivered straight to your door.
Keep in touch and be safe.
