how it works
Drop off your item(s) with us at our booth at the Farmer's Market! If needed, we have a changing room available for your use if you would like a fitting at our booth. If you already know the specific measurements, that works too.
Pick up your item(s) at the farmer's market in two weeks and pay at our booth. Can't make it? We'll hold onto your item(s) for you and you can pick them up on another date, just let us know!
Please contact me if you are unsatisfied with your service in any way. We can discuss options on how to resolve the issue.
