How true is that cute little statement these days? With retailers from Amazon to Wal-Mart running low on hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, it’s becoming evident that some social distancing may be required. What else can we do to stop the spread of illnesses like the newest strain of coronavirus, COVID-19? In a world where it’s becoming the norm to stay indoors is being an introvert really a bad thing anymore?
In a recent blog by HoMade Studio, Pop-Up markets in Port Orange, Florida were mentioned as the new alternative to local brick and mortar businesses. But, what about the people who can’t or don’t want to leave the house at all? Of course, there’s always online shopping: a virtual shop ‘til you drop world where the only limits are the battery life of your laptop and the limit on your credit card. It’s tough to decide which businesses either deserve your hard-earned cash or allow you to confidently make a purchase from a company who won’t scam you.
HoMade Studio is a local business with a home base just outside Daytona Beach, Florida. We cater to our community. We offer reasonable, fast and nearby shipping as well as pricing that is fair and affordable for our local economy. We watch trends and create fashionable clothing that will get your selfies a lot of likes on Facebook and double taps on Instagram. We use high quality fabrics for every t-shirt, onesie and tote bag. Best of all, you need not worry about fraudulent transactions. If you live in the Daytona Beach area, you can rest assured you’re ordering from a neighbor, not a foreign country. We absolutely pride ourselves on our excellent customer service. When you message us on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Zibbet, AC Moore or through our website, you will communicate directly with the owner - ME!
We can all foresee that in the next few weeks, possibly even months, people will leave their homes less. They will depend more on the technology at their fingertips. Social media traffic will increase as I-95 traffic decreases. We will also need to pull together, as a community, to help our neighbors through this trying time. We will need to support local, Daytona Beach area owned businesses even more. Let’s face it, those online companies where merchandise is shipped directly from China are taking a huge risk with your family’s health. So, while we could all use a reminder to Wash Your Damn Hands several times a day, we also need to remember that if we’re going to get through this, we’re going to get through it together, close to home. It’s time to shop local and keep the economies of Ormond Beach to Edgewater strong!
Always follow the advice of the Florida Center for Disease Control and Prevention and, don’t forget to wash your dang hands!
