January 18, 2013 Update: It's coming, it's coming! We are so relieved and happy to announce that our shipment is headed our way at long last. Our freight carrier expects to take possession of the merchandise for us on Tuesday, January 22, and they expect to have it in our warehouse withing a week of that date. We will update again once we have received the shipment. - Laura
Well as most all of our customers know, 2012 was a bit of a disaster for us. We finished the year not knowing what would happen next, or how we would make it through 2013 successfully. Finally, though, we have some good news to share with you. While we do not have an exact arrival date yet, we can now say for certain that the merchandise we were supposed to receive last November will be arriving sometime in the near future. Negotiations to get our products released to us are nearing completion. I am hopeful that we can finalize the details of that, and get the shipment on it's way to our warehouse by the end of January.
In the event that falls through, though, we also have another factory working feverishly on a production run of our most popular products. They assure me that they can have our replacement items completed and delivered by sometime in April. We will post another update as soon as we know which shipment will arrive first, but in the meantime we at least wanted to let you know that we will be able to fill your orders.
Thanks to all of you for your incredible patience and understanding through this difficult process. I am so pleased that the final outcome is a good one!
Equally exciting is the production run we have in progress with our glass works. By early Spring we will have two new cylinder hurricane shades in stock, as well as some new options for votive glass. Please read the blog article on this happy topic for details: http://www.brassandsilvertraditions.com/Colored-Votive-Glass_b_6.html, or visit our Coming Soon! page for a look at these new glass products.
2013 is shaping up to be a great year! Stay tuned for the next update within a couple of weeks.
