For those of you like me who aren't sewists, where are you purchasing your masks? (I know there's a lot of great info in the comments of the linked blog post, but I thought we could use an equivalent thread to the fantastic DIY one Chris started.)

I think we're in for a long period of obligatory mask-wearing, especially in larger cities and, since I don't sew, I ordered some. I wanted beautiful ones, not for a fashion statement, but to inject some personal joy into scary times.

In addition to a few plain black ones from an Etsy seller, I ordered these from Johnny Was:

They're doing a pack donated to SoCal hospitals for each pack sold, so I was happy to support a company making a local impact.

I also ordered one from a Colorado friend who's returned to her sewing roots as her jewelry business struggles through tough times. She had a stash of vintage textiles she's using to make the most beautiful masks. I asked for one of the cotton barkcloth versions below.
