Update: June 19, 2020
Half-Pint Resale, as it is now, is built on the love we all feel when we gather together each spring and fall. When exploring our options for our fall sale, we just couldn’t think of a way to bring everyone together to do something big and still keep you all safe and distanced. It’s just not how Half-Pint works.
It’s because of the need for this safety that we are cancelling the August (fall) sale. Consignors – if you asked us to roll over your spring registration for fall, we’ll be in touch sometime in the next three weeks to refund you your registration fee. We have to manually refund each one, so thank you for your patience.
We are exploring possibilities of what a virtual Half-Pint Resale could look like. We wish we could tell you that it’s definitely happening – but we cannot. If it does happen, it likely would not occur until mid-fall. We’ll keep you updated in the next months as we know more.
We’ve had a couple of people reach out and ask us how the business is doing. Small businesses are all doing everything they can to stay afloat right now. While we are of course saving money from not incurring event related expenses, there are many year round expenses that we continue to pay. That said, we’re running all of the numbers and tightening things up where we can, and we anticipate that we’ll be able to make it through till next year.
We know how much the community depends on Half-Pint, and we also know that many in our community on tight budgets are feeling it even more right now. Thinking about moving into a Wisconsin winter without finding good deals on everything our kids need gives us a slight panic, too. We’re with you.
