– I mentioned in last week’s Link Pack that my company Tattly is hurting. Many of you have placed an order to support us. Thank you! I don’t know if we will make it through this storm. For now, I am singlehandedly fulfilling orders that come in carrying them over to the nearest post office. If there was ever a time you wanted to surprise someone with some Tattly, or buy some for yourself, this is a good moment. PS: I see your kind check-out-notes. I appreciate you!
