As the Caravan Gift Shop struggles with a devastating loss of business due to this pandemic and the fact that we have been closed to the public since March 14th, we are running out of cash to pay our rent, utilities, payroll, artisans, and make sure we have enough cash on-hand to re-open.
With your help, we can raise enough funds to weather this storm and emerge on the other side of this crisis intact and ready to serve our neighbors in our community. This campaign will help support the Caravan Gift Shop both in the immediate and over the next several months. Any money raised over our goal amount we will be sharing with other small businesses in the historic Nickels Arcade. You might recognize a few of them, such as Comet Coffee, Van Boven Clothing, Van Boven Shoes, Arcade Barber, Mix, Randy Parrish Framing, Apples and Oranges, University Flower Shop, Arcadian Antiques, Bivouac and Mason Edwards.
If you can give any amount, we are truly grateful. If not, there are other ways to support us and other small businesses in the Nickels Arcade facing similar situations, such as sharing this page with your family and friends, following our social media accounts, purchasing gift cards, or sharing positive reviews on google and yelp.
Thank you for letting us be a part of this vibrant community the past 93 years! We appreciate you all so much. We will get through this together, and will stay in touch with each other, even if it is from more than six feet away.
Warmest wishes during trying times,
Caravan Gift Shop
