Irish Blessingsplease be advised that backordered items may take 10 days or more to come back into stock. If you order backordered items along with other items that you need in a hurry for Christmas, please pop me a note on your order, I will do my utmost to get In-stock items out ASAP with backordered items following on in a later envelope.
An important notice to folks who ordered from the November release.
As you will know, two of our November sets were delayed. Also during the release, other sets sold out and went onto backorder. These are listed above.
I have been taking shipments of replacement stock all week, but I have not yet received enough stock of everything to fulfil all of the orders that were placed.
I am fulfilling orders chronologically as stock comes in and I had intended to only ship orders once they were complete.
However, I am mindful that Christmas is just around the corner and so I have taken the decision to go ahead and ship out everything that I have in stock. What this means is that if you placed an order for several stamp sets, I will ship out to you those that I have in stock while we wait on the items that are on backorder. I will automatically send on the backordered items as I receive them. Many folks will receive their order in two shipments, but I feel uncomfortable about holding back instock items while waiting on backordered items.
No-one will pay any extra shipping, I will absorb this in favour of trying to get in-stock stamps to customers in time for their holiday preparations.
This past release was so busy that despite what we thought were buoyant stock levels, the sets listed above sold out during the release and although I had already ordered replacement stock, the replacements are not due here until next week. I would feel totally uncomfortable about holding back orders until then.
The upshot of all this is that there is now perhaps double the packing and paperwork and so I am going to be very slow to answer queries via email over the next couple of days. I hope you can bear with me.
