Holiday Store Shipping!

.

The gnomes that work in the Dirt Candy Store have just informed me that they are on the verge of a walk-out. In order to avoid this, I’ve agreed to give them the holidays off. But what does this mean for you?

.

Anything ordered after midnight on 12/20 will not be shipped until after 1/6. That means that you have until this Friday night at midnight to place any orders you want, and they’ll ship out on 12/21. But after Friday at midnight, anything you place an order for won’t ship until the first week of the new year.

.

Harsh? Inconvenient? Irritating? Absolutely. But if you have a problem with it I can only shrug and say: take it up with my gnomes.

Seasonal Super Sale at the Dirt Candy Store

.

The holidays are coming and that means one thing: you have to buy presents. A lot of presents. So many presents that if you start thinking about them before you get out of bed in the morning you may just go back to sleep. Dirt Candy hears you, and we want to help.

.

Happy Canada Day!

.

It’s that special time of the year when Canadians everywhere say Happy Canada Day! Be nice to my people today, give them beaver tails and maple sugar when you see them. Ask them about hockey. Show interest in their great health care system. Try to guess the biggest province. Your reward will be their warm, caring, non-judgmental smile.

And because Canada is the greatest country in the world (seriously, this is a scientific fact) I am running a Canada Day Sale at the Dirt Candy store. But one day cannot contain all the wonders of Canada so this sale will run for the entire month of July! Here’s what you get:

.

- all t-shirts, cookbooks, and tote bags are marked down by about 20%. That means cookbooks are just $15, T-shirts are only $13, and tote bags are $14.

- cookbooks are signed by me, and by the artist Ryan Dunlavey, who draws a chilled-out panda as his signature

- free shipping! Yes, I know shipping has been free so far, but this is the last month on the gravy train. Free shipping will stop on August 1st and then I’ll have to start charging for it.

(NOTE: the discount does not apply to gift certificates – sorry!)

Happy Canada Day, everybody!!!

Monday is Canada Day!

.

This Monday is Canada Day, and so, in the spirit of the day I’m having a month-long super-sale at the Dirt Candy store.

.

 CD_2

.

Shipping is free! Everything is 20% off! And we have about 80 cookbooks signed with a magical panda by both myself and Ryan Dunlavey!

.

At the end of the month, shipping will no longer be free. The United States Postal Service is getting slower and slower and media mail (which I use in order to keep the shipping price low) has become unreliable and has, at times, taken 3 weeks to deliver a cookbook from one side of Manhattan to another. I’ll be shipping everything by First Class or Priority Mail starting August 1st, but that means I’ll have to add about $4 in shipping charges for cookbooks. So if you want your shipping to be free you need to order your tote bags, t-shirts, and cookbooks during the July Canada Day month-long super-sale.

.

So Happy Canada Day! And Happy Shopping!

We’re having a Canada Day Sale…for all of July!

.

July 1 is Canada day! And that means the Dirt Candy Store has to have a sale. It’s a law. But one day is not enough to celebrate the might of Canada and so we’re celebrating Canada all MONTH with a Canada Day Month Sale. July will be the last month of free shipping from the Dirt Candy store, we’ll have cookbooks signed by Ryan Dunlavey, and we’ll be marking down our prices by about 20% (which is almost $4 off the cookbooks!). It’s practically free. And what better way to show your love for Canada?

So keep your eye on July 1. That’s when the Canada Day madness begins!

Sandy Update

.

(Update: as of Tuesday, November 6, Dirt Candy has re-opened! Seriously. We’re open. You can eat here! People have been confused, so be confused no longer!)

.

I’m in the middle of re-opening Dirt Candy and so far the biggest problem (besides having to remake everything from scratch, all at once) is that my internet service is out. Verizon told me, “We don’t know why it’s out, we don’t know when it will be back, and it may never be back.” As you might imagine, these are not the words I wanted to hear. The biggest thing I need internet access for are Open Table reservations. To their credit, Open Table is being really great about this (a huge improvement over my last interaction with them) but for now, if you want a reservation (or need to cancel a reservation, or change a reservation) please call the restaurant (212-228-7732). I’m really sorry for the inconvenience, but just imagine: it’s only a single phone call for you, but I’ll be answering the phone all day long.

.

Then there’s storage. Dirt Candy has off-site storage over on Avenue D, right in the middle of the flood zone. My storage unit: in the basement. This is what it looks like.

.

.

My husband was over there yesterday and today digging it out, and what really sucks is that insurance doesn’t cover this loss. The policy I had through the storage place doesn’t cover water damage, and the coverage I have through my home owner’s policy doesn’t cover this particular location for flooding (because it’s in a flood plain). This was all news to me!

.

Want to buy a Dirt Candy Cookbook: Special Superstorm Sandy Edition?

.

The store is still open, and we’re still selling stuff, but we have no more men’s t-shirts (unless you’d like to buy a wet, mildewy one saturated in heating oil and raw sewage) and I won’t be able to ship any book orders until this weekend. I’ll keep you posted on developments.

.

.
