TL;DR: We are in a very tight spot and would love it if you would buy our stuff so we can dig our way out. AND it’s all on sale, so it’s a win for everyone! Links below!
We’ve been struggling with unemployment and under-employment for several years. We’ve burned through our savings, cashed out 401Ks, sold stuff, tightened our belts, etc., but keep getting hit: our house needed a new roof, to the tune of $8,000. My husband had to have surgery on his wrist and elbow, which, after insurance, was $6,000. Our water heater is about to die. Our a/c died, and the new one was $7,000. (We live in Phoenix, a/c is non-negotiable.)
And today one of our dogs, our Fenris, has an infected wound on his paw pad: initial cleaning, tests, antibiotics and other pills are over $500, and who knows where it’ll end up.
We’ve maxed out our credit and applying for more is not possible at this time.
We are not asking for a handout. We are not asking for money for nothing.
We make things, and would like to sell you things! On sale and everything!
ALL shops have a coupon code – FENRIS – good for 15% off EVERYTHING, even custom work. ($5 minimum for the button shop; no minimum for the others).
We make fandom buttons, magnets and keychains, and also do custom and wholesale work : https://www.etsy.com/shop/BlackUmbrellaInd?coupon=FENRIS
We make some truly fantastic toffee and caramels: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SweetBytes?coupon=FENRIS
We’re in a band, and we have merch: https://reliquary.bandcamp.com/merch (we split all proceeds between members, and save a portion to fund our upcoming album – so you’re also helping us create new music!)
Do you need a scarf maybe? Loki knits and would love to make you a scarf. shoot me a message if you’re interested in one of those; we don’t have an etsy for scarves yet =)
If you’re not in a position to buy anything, could you please reblog? signal boosts are always welcome!
Thanks for reading! You’re wonderful.
