PLEASE READ THE BELOW INFO BEFORE ORDERING, THANK YOU.
I AM NOW AT MY CAPACITY. I CANNOT ACCEPT ORDERS FOR SHOES OR BOOTS THAT ARE NOT IN STOCK. I AM FULLY COMMITTED TO COMPLETING MY CURRENT RETAIL AND COMMERCIAL ORDERS.
ANYTHING THAT IS SHOWN AS IN STOCK DOES EXIST. I WELCOME YOUR ORDER. IT WILL BE SHIPPED OUT WITHIN A COUPLE DAYSOF YOU ORDER BEING PLACED
I WILL ALSO AT THIS TIME BE REBUILDING MY INVENTORY, KEEP CHECKING, AS I WILL BE ADDING 10- 15 PAIR OF VARIOUS STYLES EACH WEEK.
STYLES THAT HAVE NO INVENTORY ARE NOT CURRENTLY BEING SHOWN ON THE WEBSITE. THEY HAVE NOT BEEN DISCONTINUED. I JUST DON'T HAVE ANY TO SELL YOU SO WHY SHOW THEM.
So sorry to have to do this, but I must control the volume of orders that I receive, I ran quite behind this spring and now we have entered the event season, and some people are quite upset at having to wait to have something hand made to complete their order. So for the time being I will be completing my outstanding website orders, rebuilding my inventory, and getting some sleep. It's been a record spring for orders. Thank you everyone who has ordered this year. You've been great to work with.
HOB NAILS, CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE. PLEASE DO NOT ADD THESE TO YOUR ORDER. I DO NOT HAVE ANY AT THIS TIME.
SOLD OUT OF HOB NAILS.
PLEASE REMEMBER YOU WILL NOT HAVE THEM 3 DAYS AFTER YOU ORDER! IF THEY ARE INSTOCK THEY WILL BE MAILED WITHIN 2-3 BUSINESS DAYS, NOT ON YOUR DOORSTEP IN 3 DAYS. PLEASE THINK AHEAD. YOU ARE DEALING WITH A ONE MAN SHOP, AND THERE'S ONLY SO MANY HOURS IN A DAY.
I am going to leave my little rant below here on my homepage. Many people have given me congrats for coming right out and saying this. And I stand by it 100%
I am not Walmart, or Amazon.com. They give you low quality, but they give it to you cheap and fast. I'll speed things up. But, I won't give you crap. I don't have 30,000 employees or sales greater than the GNP of some small countries. I am ONE man who makes good handmade shoes. If you don't want to wait for something that is hand made, goodbye, and go back to Walmart. Sorry for the rant. I do my best. It's been a long hard year.
