Feast your eyes on our newest sticker designs courtesy of local artist Lydia King (@lydiamakesstuff). We love them and we hope you do too.
Lydia is a local Wilmington artist that focuses on bold prints and illustrations that showcase the natural world with a dark twist. She took some common themes in her work and combined them with ice cream! During the day she manages a local sewing shop (Fran’s Sewing Circle) and teaches sewing classes. Her motto is “make art, feel better.”
As with all of this year’s artists we paid Lydia for her work and also made a donation to the charity of her choice: the A.G.Bell Association. Her sticker designs are now available at all three shops and online. Thanks so much for these designs, Lydia!
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.
