With more than 18 years in business, my suppliers know me well by now. As arguably their biggest long term buyer, and having both the great business relationships and friendships we have, they know what I am looking for, and for years have been kind enough to send me pictures after de-barking, allowing me to choose first after harvesting trips and set pieces aside until I'm ready for shipment, giving me the opportunity to gauge interest and advertise during what could be 6 months or more before I take delivery. Because I believe in giving all customers an equal opportunity to "get a crack at new inventory" and I have so many customers ask to be notified when I do commit to purchasing new inventory, I offer you the opportunity to pre-purchase now - while a shipment is either still being assembled in Australia or in transit to the US - with the benefit of a 10% discount. The same normal discounts I offer - either free shipping or 10% discount (in lieu of free shipping to AK/HI/Internationally) for orders over $350 still apply to pre-purchases.
Once I've selected and posted items on my business Facebook page or here on my Coming Soon page, they are available for pre-purchase. Pre-purchasing requires payment now, earning you a 10% discount and helping my cash flow.
