A Note about Reopening: Welcoming customers into our shop and sharing our love for Mexico and Mexican folk art is what we love to do, and we look forward to the day we can return to an open brick and mortar store. That said, as retailers begin to reopen, we've decided to continue focussing on online sales, shipping and curbside pickup in the coming weeks. We're taking our time as we consider ideas for a thoughtful reopening that protects the safety and well-being of our team and our customers. We will keep you in the loop as we make plans to reopen our space in a safe way.

Dear Zinnia Folk Arts People, 

We believe in the power of beauty, color and handmade objects to uplift and create a happy home. We are not just about folk art. Our travel, purchases and sales are about people, about our connection to a world beyond our borders, about the creative spirit  and about making beautiful things that inspire and delight. 

During these unprecedented times our Minneapolis based team is complying with the Minnesota Stay At Home order and following all recommended procedures for preventing the spread of disease. Our Minneapolis brick and mortar store is closed until further notice, staff is working from home, online orders are packed twice per week in a clean store that has had no in-store visitors since March 15, 2020 and only one person is packing and shipping all online orders. (These orders help us pay our bills! Thank you!) We are shipping out online orders two or three times/week. We continue to be available online at our usual email address, Info@ZinniaFolkArts.com.

 

We have established:

++Free Shipping for all continental USA online purchases, EXCEPT CERAMICS,  by choosing it at checkout. You may also enter the code, FREESHIPPING at checkout. Ceramics can be held at the shop and shipped later for actual shipping cost or picked up curbside. See Below.

++Our Loyalty Program members are now earning triple points.

++We no longer ship internationally. Shipping only to US addresses. 

++Our Twin Cities customers can now avail themselves of curbside pickup on either Tuesdays or Fridays from 11-2 or by appointment. (But you do need to let us know when you will pick it up so we are sure to be there!)

++Curbside Pickup: Payment is done through the website or via Paypal invoice. Pickup times are Tuesday and Friday from 11-2 or by appointment. Call to let us know you are at the shop during those times. Stay in your car. Delivery will be made to your car backseat, through the car window or trunk, by staff wearing a mask and gloves. 

++Until further notice, our ceramics are not immediately available for shipping.  They are available for Minneapolis curbside pick-up. If you live in the Twin Cities metro area, you can now select whether you would like to pick up ceramics (and other items) curbside on Tuesday or Friday. We will have it ready for you and deliver to your car outside the shop in mask and gloves! 

++If you live outside of the Twin Cities metro area, you may choose to purchase ceramics and have us hold the item at the shop to be shipped later (after we reopen) or to be picked up at the Minneapolis shop after we reopen. All ceramics have additional shipping charges in addition to the price of the piece. They are shipped by UPS from Minneapolis to your destination.   We are happy to offer free shipping to all other items in your purchase--we are shipping 2-3 x/week, so please expect a slight delay. 

We will continue to keep you up to date here of any further disruption to our business that may affect you. 

We are so grateful for your loyalty and love and look forward to brighter days ahead. 

Sincerely,
Anne Damon, Owner
