Q: WHY did you leave the islands???!!???
A: Ha ha, we get asked that a LOT. In a nutshell, the two Category 5 hurricanes that devastated our island home in 2017 left us and our businesses high and dry (no pun intended). We realized it was a great opportunity to make a change, and we wanted to be closer to family and friends in the states, so we decided to move back. Yes, we still miss our island and our friends there, but it’s good to be back home again in Indiana too! :)
Q: Do you ship?
A: At the moment we do not offer shipping but stay tuned because we are trying to figure out how to make that happen in the future!!
