Good morning/afternoon Farmhouse Fluff.
Bernadette here, wanting to give the group
an update since its been a few weeks since the last one
I provided and wanted to give further details regarding what is currently going on and the future of Farmhouse Fluff.
As some of you may know, or don't know I have been dealing
with a lot personally for some time now, physically and mentally.
I was diagnosed with severe high blood pressure, heart problems, depression/anxiety and just recently suffered a head injury on top of other serious personal things I have been going through. This has greatly impacted the business because I have been working as an empty glass for quite some time on top of severe delays with the business that has been going on for a long time and its just become too much for me.
At this time I am almost caught up on issuing all refunds that have been requested or we have previously stated we would refund due to my health. If you are still waiting on yours please know that it will be finalized in the upcoming days whether it be a refund or shipped out.
At this time I am not 100% sure what the future holds for Farmhouse Fluff continuing on into the future but at this present moment I need to fully stop and take a couple months break. Originally I had stated it would be a short break while I heal myself but I need a lot more time to become 100% again.
As of today what is left of the old stock on the website has been discounted to 50% OFF (discount is applied at checkout) until all the old stock is gone or is donated if it doesn't sell. All stock that is not on the website/new diaper prints will be posted at a later date and will be announced once all or most of the old product is gone/donated so please feel free to request to be tagged once those products drop on the website. Once that stock is listed and is sold out, or doesn't sell it will be donated. After that, the website will be closed down until further notice while I continue to work on my health and other issues.
As stated, I do not know what the future holds for Farmhouse Fluff, sometime in the future once I am at 100% and if I feel up to reopening with a fresh start I will or if I decide to go a different route the group will be informed. If you decide to leave, or to stay I just want to thank everyone for being here throughout this journey over the last 3 years we have been open.
It has definitely been one hell of a ride with great memories and also lots of bumps along the way. This is not a decision I have come to lightly in anyway as I love cloth diapers, the business and all the friends I have met along the way but it is time I take a step back for the better for myself and my customers.
I appreciate everyone who purchased and supported me over the years and who may or may not continue to support me into the future. I am glad I gained so many great friendships along the way, and the hardships have taught me a lot.
I know there are a lot of people who do not support me, who will continue to talk badly of me and will be happy that the business is coming to halt. I never gave my customers excuses, I have been told the absolute worst that my head injury was just another excuse and that I am a horrible person and business owner when they do not know me at all and wish me ill. I would never wish anyone ill, even those who have treated me like I was nothing. If people have made up their mind about me, then that is on them, I will no longer let it affect me.
I have let the negativity effect me far too much and I will no longer be focusing on it at all, and only the positive.Those who truly know me as a person, and who have been by my side and what I have gone through and worked with me over the years and have supported me know the truth and that is perfectly OK.
I only wish the best for everyone because that is the type of person I am, I know what its like to hit rock bottom and I would not wish everything that I have gone through on anyone. Going forward I will only focus on all the positive I have received from the business the passed few years and learn from the negativity and turn it into a positive and wish everyone the absolute best.
The group will remain open and the admin/mod team will continue to stay active if there are ever any questions or concerns please feel free to ask and we will be happy to answer. As stated if the business will fully close or reopen a few months down the road we will inform the customers who decide to stay.
Thank you for taking the time to read this update.
Once again I appreciate each and everyone of you and wish
everyone the best.
