So, whether or not we may be ready, different places are loosening the shelter in place restrictions. Not sure when art fairs will be happening for sure or not, but I'm starting to think about how it will work when customers are actually looking for jewelry again at art fairs. Has anyone had any thoughts about how to protect ourselves and customers? Do you think it's going to be possible? I'm still having a hard time accepting that I'm "elderly" and "high risk!
