Is the storefront open?
The storefront is reopening for weekends only beginning SATURDAY, AUGUST 29. Operating hours are 11am-5pm. To shop on all other days, please make an appointment by writing to email@example.com.
Can I pick up an order at the storefront?
Yes, of course! Choose ‘Pick-up’ when you are checking out, and we will reach out to you when it is ready. Our public pick-up days are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, & Sundays. For all other days, an appointment must be made in advance. Remember to wear a mask when you come by!
Is it safe to come into the store?
We take cleanliness and safety very seriously, especially during this time. In addition to limiting in-store shopping hours, our staff will always be wearing PPE, and will often wipe down frequently-used surfaces throughout the day. We also require all customers to wear a face mask before entering and to sanitize hands before browsing. Furthermore, we are only allowing 3 people in the shop at a time, and social distancing is heavily encouraged. There are two air filters that will run during operating hours, and we will try to keep doors open whenever weather allows. *IMPORTANT NOTE* If you are feeling ill or have a fever, please stay at home!
When will my online order arrive?
Due to COVID-19, we are only shipping orders about once a week to limit exposure. Expect slight delays. If your order includes cookies, please allow at least one week lead time in addition. If you need an order to be shipped more urgently, please leave a note at checkout, and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
How are orders packed?
Each order is safely and carefully packed with gloves while wearing a face mask. Work surfaces are also regularly sanitized with alcohol. Occasionally we may need to pack orders in multiple boxes or envelopes. You will receive tracking information for each.
What’s your return/exchange policy?
Unused, undamaged items can be exchanged with a receipt within 14 days of purchase, except the following: original artworks including ceramics, body care/beauty products, and baked goods. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the process.
If an item is damaged during shipment, please reach out to us directly by emailing email@example.com. A refund will be issued on a case-by-case basis.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards.
Items can be taken to the store for exchange during operating hours.
What was the inspiration behind the name, ‘From Here to Sunday’?
The founder was fixated on ‘to and from’ gift tags. She liked the idea of gifting a moment ‘from here’ to another time in the future (Sunday) and felt it captured the transportative quality of a thoughtful gift. The name also describes the wide range of inventory in the shop -- we’ve got everything from here to Sunday!
How long has this shop been around?
The business began in late 2016, operating mainly through pop-ups. Then in June 2018, we opened a permanent storefront at 567 Union Street in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
I’m an artist; how can I submit my work to the shop?
The best way is to email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your website or portfolio. Please refrain from sending attachments if possible. While we accept artists on a rolling basis, often there will be no room in the budget for new art, or the style may not fit the shop’s curation.
How do you decide what items to stock?
From Here to Sunday tends to gravitate toward work that is seemingly simple, yet meticulously crafted. We also love color and bold graphics. Mostly we look for work that elicits joy. You might notice we also lean heavily feminist and have a fun sense of humor!
Why are there so many Asian artists represented?
Honestly, it just happened organically. But it’s important to think about whether this question would be asked of other businesses showcasing mainly white artists. We take pride in providing space for underrepresented artists, which includes artists of Asian descent.
I’m a big fan of the shop; what are some ways I can continue to support the business?
Thank you! The best way to support us right now is to buy a gift card. If you want a more delicious way, you could sign up for the Taster’s Club Cookie Subscription. If money’s tight, just tell your friends about the shop, give us a shoutout, or share our posts on social media. Otherwise, just continue coming back to shop for great art and gifts! It’s all appreciated :)

Do you sell baked goods at your storefront?
Occasionally, we will have pre-packaged cookies for sale, or hold bake sales, but we do not have baked goods at the storefront on a regular, permanent basis.
Do you do custom baking orders?
Yes, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you have in mind. Each project is unique, so the pricing will differ depending on what is needed. For custom cakes, there is a minimum deposit of $50 to get started, which gets applied as a credit toward the final total cost.
Wait, you’re not Gowanus Souvenir?
No, but we do have some of their items! We shared the storefront with them for several years before they moved out of the space at the end of January 2020. They still sell items online and offer wholesale as well.
