Summer Plans

Please read!
Please send me your vacation dates by email or write it on your invoice! You will be charged for missed baskets unless you notify me. I will be taking a week or 2 here or there this summer, and will update you when the co-op will take these weeks off. I spent a good part of this last week working out my vacations, and almost have it in order.
Slow Money...
