A good half of the art of living is resilience.
-Alain de Botton
I want you to know that Asheville Goods remains open for online and telephone orders, and I will continue to ship gift boxes as long as I can get products from our vendors. I have been going for eight years with support from this resourceful and resilient community. Thank you for your continued business. Dollars spent here support other small local businesses that are struggling to stay open.
We have lost a couple vendors, but we’ve found some new ones too! So some curated boxes have had a few changes, The website is currently up to date, but feel free to call to check the availability of specific items.
We’ll be taking an end-of-summer hiatus to prepare for the holiday season from September 13 through October 4. Pickups and shipping will take place only on Tuesdays and Thursdays during this time.
Local pickup at the packing shop at 7 Brevard Road in West Asheville is always free, and now I offer curbside pickup. Just call with your arrival time and pull up right in front of the shop. Your box will be brought out to you with gloved hands, all the while keeping a safe distance.
Please be assured that the safety of customers and the community is 100% top of mind. I’ve made the decision to stay open, safely, to be able to offer this service. Per usual guidelines, surfaces are kept clean and sanitized regularly; however, even more diligence is being taken during this time. Included with each shipped gift is a note of reassurance regarding clean packing procedures. I’ve researched what is believed to be known hazards, and shipping is a safe choice when you can’t be there in person.
Sending an Asheville Goods gift box is like sending a virtual hug from the Carolina mountains. And during this time of quarantining and social distancing, a box of indulgent goodies for yourself or your brethren is a welcome delight!
Happy Autumn as it is coming on!
In health and gratitude,
All these storms I know we’ll weather,
All these storms we’ll ride together
