Welp, I’m now selling face masks in the ol’ Etsy shop. Now that it is recommended to wear something instead of nothing, both Etsy and my supplier have been encouraging people creators to make fabric coverings to help the onslaught of people without.
These fabric coverings are NOT to replace medical grade face masks and NOT for hospital workers and those at the front of line of this pandemic. Rather, it is good to have something to wear when going out grocery shopping, running errands, etc. Using fabric and other low grade masks helps to ensure those amazing front of line people continue to have access to the medical grade masks and resources where they are very needed.
I have to admit that this is all strange to me. I feel awkward and kind of awful putting such items in my shop right now. But if this is the current norm, and I’m able to help anyone out there by adding these items, so be it.
With that in mind, I wanted to do some designs that were fun and funny, some recognizable smiles in bright colors. These are all washable and reusable and something you can keep and continue to use even after we’ve gotten through this mess.
Check out the masks at williamotyler.etsy.com and if you’re interested in one, I’m also offering free standard domestic shipping within the U.S.
Stay safe and smart and healthy as much as you can!
