We’ve ALL been challenged this year… in ways we probably never imagined! Here at CellularWindowShades.com, we’ve faced obstacles – both professional and personal – of seemingly every kind. We know how lucky we are, though. We’ve survived… in many ways, we’ve even come through this stronger than ever.
Not everyone is so fortunate. Many are struggling, and we want to help. Through the end of the year, not only are we offering you, our beloved customers, 40% off your purchase of beautiful new cellular shades, but we’re also donating a portion of each sale to COTS (Committee on Temporary Shelter).
If you’ve been thinking about dressing up those windows in fabulous style and ultimate warmth, why not now? Together, we CAN make a difference!
No doubt about it, things are not “normal” right now. I think we can all agree on that! In our world, supply chains are slowed, shipping times are less predictable, safety procedures affect all aspects of shade building, and frankly, our staff needs a little time to spend with family and to gear up for what we expect to be a gangbusters 2021.
In our continuing tradition of total transparency, we want you to know upfront that new orders are not expected to ship until late January or early February. We know, we know… that’s not exactly ideal for some of you, and we would put this topsy-turvy world right back on it’s proper axis for you if we could! But right now, we have to ask… can you spare a little extra patience? We sure do appreciate it, and we promise to build you amazing, durable, handcrafted shades that will be worth the wait!
To say this year has been challenging – for everyone – would be a huge understatement. For our part, we’ve worked tirelessly to overcome all obstacles and deliver the same outstanding level of service you’ve come to expect from our small Vermont company.
We’d like to finish this crazy year with a flourish, allow our hard-working staff to recharge, and hit the ground running in 2021 with even greater effort and purpose. We want to blow your socks off! With that in mind, we’re giving our employees a little extra time off this holiday season. In the end, we all benefit!
Don’t worry… like Santa and his elves, we’ve always got our eye on things, even when you can’t ‘see’ us! Are you ready to order, so you’ll be first in the queue? Go right ahead! Orders will go through as always. Got an urgent question? We’ll be checking in periodically, so you aren’t left hanging. You are the reason we do what we do, and we’ve got your back!
Don’t get us wrong… we’d LOVE to offer our gorgeous, handcrafted shades at half-price ALL THE TIME. Alas, that’s just not possible. In fact, the only time we’ve dared to do so was during “The Period That Shall Not Be Named”, when we had to temporarily halt production this past April and May. After all, we asked you to be remarkably patient, and we wanted to reward you for your loyalty and understanding.
Well, of course we want to give you a great Black Friday / Cyber Monday deal. That goes without saying! Yet we’re going above and beyond because, again, we need to ask you for just a wee bit of patience. We are open, fully staffed, and building shades better and faster than ever. However, other parts of this crazy world – in this most unusual of years – are once again slightly off kilter.
Some of our supplies are arriving more slowly than normal. Shipping times are a tad more unpredictable. We pride ourselves on being completely upfront and transparent, and we can’t currently guarantee order completion dates any earlier than mid-to-late January. But if you have some flexibility on your delivery date, we’ve soooo got your deal, and we’d be delighted if you’d take advantage of the best prices we’ve ever offered!
Look, we’ve ALL been cooped up at one point or another during this pandemic. We have cleaned, organized. We’ve mastered sourdough and finally wrangled all those dust rhinos (mine weren’t cute little bunnies!) from under every piece of furniture.
And as you sit back to enjoy your accomplishments, your eyes gaze out your windows…UGH. Mis-matched drapery, ill-fitting miniblinds you bought to make do, hand-me-downs that were in the house when you bought 15 years ago, or even worse… nothing. Nada. Just heat-sucking, glare-producing sheets of glass! EEEK!
BUT wait, before you RUSH into buying new shades for your home, let us share the top 6 mistakes to avoid when ordering your window treatments online.

Woohoo! We’re back to full production capacity, while carefully following all CDC safety guidelines, of course. As a result, we’re furiously working away at the backlog of orders placed while we were unable to operate (thank you so much for your faith and your patience!!!).
It remains somewhat difficult to determine precise production times for new orders. Our current estimate? Orders placed today will ship in approximately 3 weeks. And we’ve added new staff and taken other measures to try to reduce our turnaround times even further!
As always, please continue to reach out with any questions. And again, thank you so very much for the tremendous support we’ve received!
Well, that time is now, our shady friends. We’ve NEVER offered this kinda discount before. EVER! Our 50% sale was a temporary response to the global pandemic, and it’s not something we can sustain under “normal” operating conditions.
Alas, the sale must come to an end on Sunday 5/31.
The good news? We’re back in full production mode, which is VERY exciting! It was our great pleasure to do what we could to help, and to honor your patience and loyalty to our small Vermont business. Truly!
Thank YOU, our amazing CellularWindowShades.com family! It might sound trite, but we ARE all in this together.
|If you know us at all, you know we want you to be thrilled with your purchase. We want it to be perfect for you. Do you need to order samples, so you can choose your ideal fabric color? Are you worried about rushing your window measurements? Pffft… relax!|
Simply shoot us an email and we’ll happily extend the 50% discount for you!
(OK, maybe not for months – but for any reasonable period. 🙂 )
Hi Valued CellularWindowShades.com Family!
As promised in my last note, I am reaching out because there has been a new development in our situation. On Friday, we received the GREAT news that Vermont’s numbers for Covid-19 cases are tracking better than predicted in the best case scenario! This is largely credited to our state’s “Stay Home – Stay Safe” policies. In order to continue the trend and beat this thing completely, our Governor has decided to extend the order through 5/15, at which time we expect to be running full speed getting shades built and out the door to you!
I understand that this extension can be frustrating for some of you. And believe me, all I want is to get my team back to work just as quickly as it’s safe to do so! I truly appreciate the outpouring of support we have received from clients like you.
The fact that you show such caring for this small Vermont manufacturer and are willing to work with us through this uncertainty makes me confident that all of us will make it through this… together!
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I am here for you.
Dear Cellular Window Shades Family,
The state of Vermont has recently issued a directive to temporarily close all non-essential businesses. We believe these closures will help get our nation back to normal more quickly, and so in our efforts to be a part of the solution are complying with the directive.
What this means is that our admin staff will be working from home and here to help as normal! We can answer questions, get you an estimate, and take orders. What we are not able to do at this time is guarantee a delivery date for your shades. However, we absolutely commit to above-average communication as we navigate these next few weeks. We will keep in touch to let you know the status of your order.
We’ll also post new announcements at our website as our status changes. In addition, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns – or to have company updates personally emailed to you. We would love to keep in touch and to know that you are safe and well during this unusual period. In all sincerity, we’d be happy just to chat if you’d like somebody to talk to!
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and for the outpouring of well-wishes our small Vermont company has already received. You are in our thoughts, and we hope for the very best for each of you as we all pull through this together!
