Hello everyone!
We always appreciate your business and support!!  We are taking a family holiday from NOW until March 7th.  We realize this is inconvenient for you - but with our wonderful staff running things while we are gone, there will be very few limitations while we are away.

Our Staff will be processing your online orders.  If you need to add or change your order - please message through the website -- you can send messages on your order - he will see these when your order is ready to ship.  He might not see messages that come to Shelley's email - Spam filters, etc.  We will also NOT be doing local pick ups until we are back.  

Certain items we sell we don't have our staff handle - like the laser - or in house anodizing. I removed the titanium and Niobium - but I left the Laser scales online -- We have a big stock, but no new scales will be made until the 8th.  This may delay your order!  If you are in a rush - please make a note on your order, and any missing scales will be credited back to you, so you can order at a later time.

Our Etsy shop is staying open, as holiday mode shuts down the CEO web stuff and takes forever to build back up - so Etsy orders will not ship until March 8th at the earliest!! 

We promise to fix any errors or issues as soon as we are back.  Please PLEASE be kind to our staff. He is doing all our jobs and his best.  Kindness goes a LONG way... we reserve the right to refuse service if you can't be kind.

Thanks again everyone!  Our kids are so excited to practice another language, and learn new things.  And the escape from this cold is such a bonus!!

See you in March!!
