Well my crafty friends, I have some sad news to share with you today. Due to upcoming changes in the European VAT tax laws, which affect us because our customer base is largely EU residents, Deedee's Digis will be closing January 31, 2015, and will not be able to sell to residents of the European Union after December 31, 2014.
I did not think that, as an American company, Deedee's Digis was subject to these laws, but learned just days ago that it is. Because the majority of our customers reside in EU countries, we must comply with the new laws or face stiff penalties. Unfortunately, I am not in the position financially or administratively to meet these new demands, and as such, will be closing the shop.
The new VAT tax laws go into effect January 1, but I did not want to close with such short notice. Thus, the shop will remain open until the end of January, but again, we will be unable to sell to European residents after December 31. Between now and then, please enjoy a 75% discount on all products throughout the shop. No need for coupon codes -- all prices have been adjusted, and no product costs more than a dollar! We will still be posting and sharing here on our blog, and sponsoring the challenges we had committed to right up until the end. We'll also have a very special "last hurrah" Digi of the Month challenge starting December 29, along with a few other treats along the way to help us go out in a FUN way, not a sad way. So we hope you'll stick around for that last bit of fun, too.
I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your support of Deedee's Digis. I've really enjoyed sharing my doodles with you, and seeing you bring them to life has given me many, many smiles! :-)
