Due to the "Stay-at-Home" order by the State of Illiniois, we are currently operating with extended order processing times. We will continue to ship orders 1-2 times per week as long as UPS and USPS are operating. Read more about these delays on our blog post here as well as how our operations reduce risk here.
We are back from our new product scouting trip to Poland! It was a wonderful trip meeting with our suppliers and seeking out new products to offer. I can't wait to share our adventures with you! In the meantime, we are all caught up with orders and back on track with our typical 1-2 day shipping processing time. Now if we could just recover from the jet lag!
We did a lot on this trip, so I'm going to break up a recap over multiple blog posts. Today I'm going to start with some more personal updates before getting into the business side of things.
This trip was very important to our family as it is the first time that our daughters were able to visit Kryz's hometown of Nowy Sacz, Poland. It was a special opportunity to meet many of their dad's family members for the first time. We also explored the region visiting many popular tourist sites to break up the business meetings and make it more fun for a 6 year old and 18 month old!
While traveling throughout the area, we crossed over the Kamienica several times. It was great to see the "Stone Creek" that gave our business it's name. And just like our logo, the Kamienica wiggles its way through the region, meaning we crossed back and forth over it many, many times!
We enjoyed visiting many of the popular tourist sites in Poland. The salt mines in Wieliczka are so unique and beautiful. This cathedral is over 100 meters underground and completely carved from salt!
Of course, we also had to visit Wawel Castle in Krakow. This amazing complex of structures surrounds a courtyard. And of course, we had to explore the cave below where the legendary Smok dragon lived!
I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into the fun side of our trip. Keep an eye on the blog for more of the business related aspects of our trip coming soon!
