dignify's growth continues to surprise and delight me, adding new angles, new pressures, new gifts & thanksgiving, and generally more fullness to life. Our shelves, however, are increasingly empty from sales of blankets & other accessories heading far & wide across the continent!
We've added a handful of new kantha throws and 15 new kantha minis to the shop! More spreads, silk blend throws, and additional cotton throws will be added in June. Be sure to add your email to our mailing list to always keep up with new shipments and additions to our online store.
This season for dignify has challenged us with waiting. Blankets have been leaving our hands at the fastest pace ever (yay!) and we are trying to simply keep up. Add extra inconveniences & delays (from COVID, from customs checks, and more), and we have been really exercising our muscles in patience, trust, and gratitude.
Culturally, we are in a stage of waiting, as well. Waiting for vaccine rollout. Waiting for "normal" opportunities to return, for "normal" life to resume in our cities, our nations.
Looking back at some photos from last Christmas, I came across this screenshot from my phone that really made me laugh:
My husband was dropping off our parcels recently, and a woman working in our shipper's office said, "I was looking at your site, and I think I might buy some of these blankets this year as gifts; I'm mostly shopping online." Another employee chimed in, "I'm going to do all of my shopping online, too."
That evening, he went with our kids to the mall to pick something up (masked, natch), and as he surveyed the hallways — with some permanently closed stores, some shuttered from lack of employees, etc. — Wayne's thought was, "I think I need to do all my shopping at the mall!"
