Thank you for everything you do for the community. Thank you for what you do for me, for creating such a magical space that radiates warmth and joy and creativity. I look forward to the day that I can visit your studio and escape the world outside. In the meantime, I have many Hintonburg treasures that bring sunshine into my home. Until then, I look forward to checking online to see more pictures of your shop and all it’s treasures!

Hey there Ginger and Dave. Happy to help out at the time and I'll get Tony to pick up the mug for me when he is in next...love to you both. Times will be better ahead. Stay the course.

So happy to support this wonderful, local business. Great idea to do the reward-based crowd-funding. If I have a choice in the colours in my mug I like blue, teal, purple and fuchsia (whatever combo works) with a large handle and thin-lipped rim. I know, not asking for much eh? All the best for continued success and much love! xox
