… life is changing for Richard & I and so the time has come to say “Goodbye” to the Rubber Stamp side of Cornish Heritage Farms.
In early 2009 we started making plans to move the farm to southern Missouri. That did not materialize & although disappointed at the time, as we look back we can see why. The plan to move was made before Michael got himself into trouble & WAY before he met Jessie. We were needed here to help Michael through his trials & then later to prepare them as best we could for married life. PLUS had we moved in 2009 we would have missed out on the blessing of Caleb. Now Michael & Jessie are married, settling into their new life together & Caleb’s adoption is complete.
As you well know, if you have been following our lives for very long, Richard & I never do things by halves! LOL! We are entrepreneurs in the truest sense of the word. We have watched the rubber stamp business grow & develop from practically nothing over the last 5 years. Alot of you have become good friends (hope that that doesn’t change) and it’s due to your loyalty as customers that CHF has been such a resounding success. The business is not in any financial difficulties, it is sound & making a good profit. Richard & I have just come to the place where we want to move on & start something fresh.
We have a buyer for the farm & although no fixed date for moving yet it is looking to be mid to late August. So with that in mind we wanted to give you a chance to purchase the stamps that you want/need & give ourselves time to liquidate all our inventory & equipment.
The business is up for sale and our desire is to see it go to someone who will take what we have started & grow it even beyond what it has become today. This is a great business to invest in & if you or anyone you know is interested please do not hesitate to contact us & we will put you in touch with the realtor. Serious enquiries only please. Although we are eager to sell & will accept offers we are talking about a substantial amount of money (6 digits).
Of course we have no idea what the new buyer will do, when the sale will occur or if they will offer all the same stamps for sale SO if there are stamps you want our advice is to get them now!Here is our timeline for shutting down:
- Orders for any stamps will be accepted until Thursday, July 15th, 2010.
- We will be closed on Friday, July 16th for stock take.
- We will reopen Saturday July 17th, 2010 but we will not be pressing any new rubber, only remaining inventory will be sold at gradually discounted rates until it is all gone.
- Our last day of trading will be Thursday Aug 5th, 2010.
Please keep in mind that orders may take longer to fulfill than normal due to an anticipated large order volume. We will keep you updated in the weekly newsletter & will be working hard to get orders out ASAP.
ALL sales are final from this time forward. NO returns will be accepted. If we should happen to make a mistake in your order please let us know ASAP so that we can fix it for you If you have a Gift Certificate please use it before August 5th, 2010. Club CHF points will continue to be awarded until July 15th, 2010. After that date you will have until August 5th, 2010 to redeem any rewards you are entitled too. After August 5th, 2010 any points left on your account will be canceled.
In all this we want to continue doing things with full integrity & will continue to produce a high quality product to the end. We thank you for your faith in us & really appreciate your business.
