We're Live!


Dear Internet, we are LIVE: blockshoptextiles.com

And we can ship in time for Christmas for US orders if you order by tonight for West Coast/ tomorrow night for East Coast!

HAPPY SWADDLING, FRIENDS! And thank you for all the *incredible* support via bigBANG, Instagrizzle, and Twitter. And this is the moment I have to mention this truly excellent no-nonsense blog comment borne out of sheer desperation from a panicked husband inquiring about launching in time for Christmas. Panicked Husband, this goes out to you and the scarf your lucky wife will be sporting come Christmas morning: happy Block Shop Day! And thanks for not giving up on us:)

Ok enough chatter go get 'em before we sell out (UPDATE: sold out of our Arrows scarf in coral while I was writing this)! And biiiiig shout-out to our incredible web guru, Joanna Waterfall (yes, that's her real name). Hopie and I have never had so much fun working with someone.


xo,
Santa's Lil' Helper

Get it? Lil' Helper? Because I'm Lil? Bwaaahaha. (Guess who's running on three days of no sleep and lots of adrenaline?)

      Hopie is shipping the Canadian scarves out first thing tomorrow, so there's a chance it might arrive by the 24th! xo

    Lilly I've been wanting to get my own printing textile business for years here at my shop, and I adore indian fabrics, so I cannot love this. You go girl. As soon as my finances get back on their feet I'll buy one for myself. My favorite is Herringbone light indigo because I LOVE light blue.

    1. Hi Jaclyn yes indeed; we have a new shipment of scarves coming in three weeks from now. Sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the site to get the update when we're restocked, and so sorry you have to wait! We had NO IDEA these babies were going to sell so fast! xo

  8. Congrats, Lil'[y]! This whole endeavor is brilliant and it's been fun watching it develop. Will you and Hopie talk a bit more about the process and share some behind the scene stories sometime? I ordered one and hope that you will restock because I would love to have one of each eventually -they are AMAZING and it was tough choosing one.

  13. Hello! I just saw the comment saying that an international buyer has received her package. I ordered a couple things the day the store opened. One is being shipped to California, the other just to Brooklyn. Should I be concerned that neither have arrived?

    Everything is beautiful and I am so excited the shop has opened up. Will you be receiving more of the sold out items? Will you be producing new designs? I wish I had a big pile of money just to spend on your scarves :o)

    1. Hi Anon! Did they arrive yet? Plenty of scarves showing up today via FedEx/Santa's sleigh. Please contact us at blockshoptextiles@gmail.com with your order number if for some reason it still hasn't arrived at either location and we'll get right on it. (But yes, should arrive before the end of the day today if you ordered when we launched). THANK YOU for your orders!

      (and yes to all questions- will be restocked with all sold out scarves in about 3 weeks, and we're already working on new designes for spring. Thanks for you excitement!) xo

  14. Ditto to the above comment. One scarf already made its way to Texas, but a second scarf heading just up the road to good 'ol Connecticut has yet to make its grand entrance. Being an eager scarf recipient doesn't help, of course. This must be a case of delayed gratification and it will be oh so sweet!

    1. Hi Anon, did it arrive yet? Please let me know! If you ordered within our holiday shipping deadline it should arrive before the end of the day today. If it still hasn't please email us your order number (in your original purchase confirmation email) to blockshoptextiles@gmail.com and we'll get right on it, but again, should be there before the end of the day today!

      Thank you so much for your two purchases- we are beyond excited for such a happily crazed first week of sales! xo
