Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I’ve made the difficult decision to close my Main Street physical storefront. Rabbit & Rocket will stay around online and through retail partnerships so do stay tuned through our email list for updates. I’ll be taking a couple months off to regroup and will share what’s next at that point.

I’m so glad to have made the new friends I made in the past 18 months. I can’t possibly list everyone who made a difference in my day when they stopped in the shop. You made a challenging journey better.

Our friends at Destination Downtown Lancaster, Visit Fairfield County and Park National Bank gave me unending encouragement and the means to make this good run. I am so appreciative, thank you.

My amazing landlords, Anna and Doug Ruff, are good people who are committed to bringing good things to our downtown. I’m excited to share that Anna will be taking over the space and bringing something wonderful very soon!

And now the practical things…

If you are holding a postponed class reservation I have sent email with options.  If you didn’t receive it, please send an email through the website or call the shop at (740) 901-3041. I look forward to talking with you!

Stay tuned for additional news about the potential for future classes in other downtown venues – the best way to find out is to stay subscribed to or join the Rabbit & Rocket email list.

Closing Date
We will have a Final Sale Weekend on Friday and Saturday, February 26th and 27th.
All merchandise including yarns will be marked down 30%. Store hours will be 12:00 – 6:00 both days.

Please know that a small portion of inventory will not be available and will be pulled from the floor. If there’s something you’re specifically curious about or want me to hold for you, please feel free to send an email here and I’ll promptly respond to your message or call the shop at (740) 901-3041.

By, or just after, February 27th, I’ll post listings of available fixtures and furnishings for sale that haven’t been claimed by the next tenant or our neighbors.

Gift Cards & I Love You More Cards
If you or someone you know is in possession of a Rabbit & Rocket gift card or comp card ($10 fixed discount value) please visit to redeem by end of business Saturday, February 27th.

Gift cards have cash value and change will be provided in the amount of any balance not used.

Comp / Promotional cards such as the I Love You More Card have no cash value. They can be redeemed in their full value for merchandise purchases during the final sale but no change is given for any remaining balance on these promotional cards. They will have no redemption value after our storefront closure.

Community Quilt
I am working on where the amazing Community Quilt and Holiday Advent Quilt will go. Announcements soon. (Suggestions welcome!)

If you have any questions, please feel free to send a message here and I’ll be happy to connect with you.

My best to you, your family and friends! I look forward to seeing you and being with you around town!
