COVID-19 Fulfillment Impacts

Working Hard to Keep Your Experience the Best

We appreciate your patience as a number of our small makers and warehouses have been affected by country and state regulations due to COVID-19. Placewares is currently fulfilling and shipping orders once weekly as a result of pandemic-related supply chain slowdowns.

Thank you very much for supporting our small business! Be safe. Be well.
