Most of you know the drill when new items are announced – we take “advance orders” for them and then ship them in the order they were received once the new item arrives. But what that usually means is that everything in the first shipment we receive (and sometimes the second) is already sold – which means that none of them make it to our store here in Dayton for a long time.
For years, I have encouraged the locals to place advance orders, too – and we’ll fill and send them to the store for pickup while we’re shipping to those of you in the hinterlands. Several take advantage of this – and have always put a note in the comments section at checkout so we know to send their orders to the store.
Until today . . .
Robyn Trimble gets a gold star – she is the first to actually list the store as the shipping address for her order!
