What does DIRECT TO YOU mean?! Almost all of our vendors require that we buy items in bulk to be able to resell them to you and have to meet certain minimums. So instead of buying just 1 or 2 vases to sell to you guys, we buy 6+ at a time and hope and pray that at least 6 people buy them or else we are "stuck" with that inventory. With all that is going on in the world right now, our vendors are also changing with the times but for the better! We have a few wonderful ones that are allowing us to buy from them with no minimum requirements. This means that we can offer YOU sooooo many more amazing products. Everything under the DIRECT TO YOU tab on our site, gets sent directly to you from our vendors and with FREE shipping. Amazing! We are SO excited to be able to offer this. Please let us know if you have any questions!
