treat y’ self
Staunton’s local businesses have all the things to make quarantine comfortable – don’t forget about you! treat y’self!
Nothing says “this is a holiday” like a Firkin Pie. They take advance phone orders for sweet & savory pies that change weekly. This week, call to place your order until Wednesday at 4:30pm, for quiche or pepperoni pie (IT’S BACK!) to be picked up on Thursday, April 16.Quiche Available whole and by the slice
redwood & co.
It is amazing how evocative a wonderful smell is. Redwood’s artisanal, small batch sandalwood candles will turn your quarantine camp into a heavenly retreat.
Take home or have comfort food brought straight to your closed door. Lundch has an order ahead meal each weekday that is 1000x better than the comfort food you remember as a kid. Try the Salmon Nicoise if it is available.
In addition to delivering jewelry to your door (and who doesn’t feel like they could use some bling right now?) Lang’s has a fun quarantine contest for young and old alike!
Give these gems some colorful sparkle and upload your specially colored version for a chance to win a genuine sapphire!
