How Art by Melrose is looking out for you in the Covid19 pandemic

Hey everyone!! Thank you for your continued support in these unprecedented times. I wanted to update you all about the extra steps I am taking to prevent the spread of the virus. Every item I ship has been freshly washed and dried then handled with gloves while wearing a mask during the entire packaging process. I am printing the labels at home and sticking them in a drop box. But, I do not have control over your postal delivery person so there are a few things I can recommend. One option would be to leave your package in the hallway for a couple days for any potential germs to die. Or if you’re too excited and can’t wait to open it, then you could open the package and dump out the contents on a clean surface. Then dispose of the outer packaging and wash your hands before touching the items inside. It is highly unlikely there will be any virus inside of the package. We are practicing strict social distancing and in our household of two, neither of us are sick. Tests have not been done on how long the virus lasts on fabric, but it is not thought to live very long on soft surfaces. So being in the mail for 2-5 days, the virus (if there were any) would die on the way to you. But if you are concerned, there is no harm in washing it another time before you wear it! I know some of this may be common sense, but I just wanted to let you all know that I am doing my best to make sure the items I ship are safe. Thank you for the support and I’m so happy to share my tie-dye with you guys! (5/27/2020)


Hello all! I hope this message finds you in good health. I really appreciate everyone’s support during this critical time. Thank you to my new & repeat customers! I understand that many of you are financially affected and dealing with a lot in general, so I’d like to say a few words on how we’re looking out for you!

First of all, almost every listing on my site (except the brand new items) has been temporarily reduced in price. Also, a Free Shipping Coupon will be active for the entire month of April. Just enter code “FREESHIP” at checkout- no limits on usage, no order minimum (U.S. shipping only). Be aware, most of these items are one-of-a-kind, so once they sell, they’re gone!

Lastly, I am practicing safe shipping methods. As far as I know, we are operating in a virus-free environment and following extreme social distancing & cleanliness as recommended by the CDC. Every item being shipped is freshly washed & dried right before packaging, then handled with gloves during the entire packaging process. Shipping labels are printed at home and then dropped in the USPS mail dropbox, minimizing the amount of hands in contact with your package. Due to this extra care, please allow a little more time for shipping. I am doing my best to get your items to you as quickly and as safely as possible.

Thank you for reading. We can only get through this if we stick together! Life is more colorful wearing tie-dye in a quarantine! Much love & stay healthy folks! (3/31/2020)
