Welcome to March, Boom fam! It’s a new month which means we get to announce the newest artist in our 2021 Artist Series lineup: Please put your hands together and welcome Sarah Rushing Doss! Sarah is a painter and muralist living in Wilmington, NC. She earned degrees from UNCW in English Literature and Studio Art with drawing and painting concentrations in 2008. You can find more of her artwork at Rx Restaurant & Bar, which she and her husband James own. Sarah's work, which is generally bold, brightly colored, and expressive, is inspired by her deep connection with nature and by architecture that she encounters in her everyday life. Sarah painted these three designs which we turned into our newest stickers. Look closely and you can even see the brush strokes.
As with all our artists this year we paid Sarah for her work and also made a donation in her honor to the charity of her choice: Nourish NC. Swing by any of our shops to grab a sticker or head to our website. Thanks so much for participating, Sarah!
Sooo… How exactly does this work?
Hey, we’re glad you asked! Shipping ice cream is a little more complicated than shipping an ice cream hat, but no worries. We’ve got this!
First, we only ship our ice cream out on Tuesdays. So when you place your order make a mental note that your pints will be leaving our shop the following Tuesday. We pack your pints into a reusable foam cooler and pack in enough dry ice to keep everything fully frozen for the journey. Once you (or a friend, family member, coworker, perfect stranger) receive the ice cream you’ll want to get it into your freezer to warm up. Nope, not a typo. The dry ice will freezer your ice cream to such a low temperature that your freezer will actually help things get back up to a scoopable temperature. And as for the dry ice? Don’t touch it with your bare hands! Dry ice is so incredibly cold that it can burn you. Just leave the bag of dry ice in a safe location (free from pets or small hands) and the dry ice will sublimate (turn directly into a gas.) See, we told you there was nothing to it.
