CHRISTMAS IS COMING, READ BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Here it is November, I cannot figure out where this year has went, As I am sitting here typing this, I am looking out at 5cm. of snow that fell this morning. So, I guess it's time to start thinking about Christmas sales. A lot of people have been patiently (thank you!) waiting for the style they want to come back in stock. Well, Merry Christmas, here`s how we`re going to do it! I have just brought back online all of my popular styles, and a couple of new ones, and new colours. I will accept orders for any style, any size of these shoes and boots up till December 05, or when I have 75 pair in the order book. Everything will be made up especially to fill your order. My last shipment date for Christmas delivery is Dec. 12th. So if you have been wanting something here`s yours chance. The word BACKORDER will show on your invoice. That means I have to specially make the shoes just for you. They will arrive in your mailbox sometime after Dec. 15th
I HAVE BEEN BUILDING MY INVENTORY. YOU WILL HAVE SEEN STYLES STARTING TO SHOW BACK UP ON THE WEBSITE OVER THE PAST WEEKS. THE MOST POPULAR STYLES FIRST.
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS WHEN YOU ORDER! IF THEY ARE INSTOCK ( the inventory shown is accurate) THEY WILL BE MAILED WITHIN 2-3 BUSINESS DAYS, NOT ON YOUR DOORSTEP IN 2-3 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.
Please note our shipping charges, methods and policies HAVE CHANGED AS OF MAY 01, 2013 Visit the "our policies" link to view.
