This 👇🏻 💕💕 #Repost @thebentspoon ・・・ ✨we couldn’t be more grateful for this community and its ability to pull together in a moment to support one another through the roller coaster it can be having a small business in such a vibrant & diverse town. . 💕WE LOVE YOU ALL AND ARE SO GRATEFUL.💕 . Today, Saturday January 12th, we will not be having regular business hours during the day due to possible march and protest events. Please note!
