To say that things have turned drastically different over the last several months is an understatement.  Just like most businesses our bottom line has been significantly affected by the shutdowns - our primary lines of revenue are our property staging and interior design projects.  

Both of those lines of business continue to have some activity, but they are down nearly 85% from pre-pandemic levels.

The EIDL we received from the Small Business Administration has helped us keep payroll going and so far has kept us in our warehouse/office.  But that will only last so long, and with social distancing rules in place (and mask wearing), and making sure to wipe down surfaces more frequently, it has been a significant change in our day-to-day work lives.

But we are thankful for the support (hopefully our elected officials will see that the amounts allocated a few months ago are not enough to keep small businesses going for another several months until this pandemic eases), and we have been focused on expanding our offerings on the online store.

We have been working diligently with our suppliers to get new introductions online and figuring out how we can best help other small businesses who are suppliers (like Alixx Candles) keep their staff productive and employed.

Our small team thanks everyone who has been patient with us as we work to get the orders placed and shipped as quickly as humanly possible.

Please keep checking in on the store as we are adding new items everyday.  We are also trying our best to keep up with supply chain issues and apologize if something you order ends up being unavailable.  Trust that we will reach out to you right away and discuss options.

Everyone at Sought + Found is dedicated to make the online shopping experience the best we can for our customers.  Your feedback is important to us, please feel free to share any positive/constructive criticism with us at

Thank you!
