Today, we’re announcing something unprecedented in the history of Variant Edition: we are taking a vacation.
Yes, Danica and Brandon will be absent from the store from Wednesday August 2nd, to Monday August 7th… and honestly, we have you to thank.
We would never be able to take time off it it weren’t for our wonderful, supportive community. Not only have you helped build us into the successful business that we are, but you’ve given us the means to take a few days off, and afford store coverage while we relax away from the shop. And that’s huge. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate being able to run the store, and share in a love of pop culture with you, and be able to afford the means to shut our brains off for a few days and be somewhere else.
So. What does that mean for the store itself? Well, we’ll be open regular hours while we’re gone, thanks to our wonderful part-time employee (and artist extraordinaire) Randi Hamel and Danica’s parents. We encourage you to pop in during this time because… well, we know our brains, and we know we’ll be reluctant to take time for ourselves if no one grabs things when we’re gone. Don’t get us wrong: we’re always sad when we miss you (Danica and I trade days off occasionally, and are happy when folks come in but are disappointed when we miss them) but knowing you’ll be by our side means the world to us. You’re all brilliant, and we’re glad to know you – and the fact that you have given us this time off through your patronage means the world to us. So thank you thank you thank you, and we will see you soon.
