About New, In-stock Items

All items are subject to prior sales. Some products we might be able to re-order for you when out of stock.

About Consignment Items

These are products offered for sale by individuals, however the actual product is in our store. All consignment items are subject to prior sales, and in most cases we only have one of those items on hand. Prices are typically set by the person offering the item for sale. If the individual is flexible about the asking price, we will indicate so by stating "make offer" in the product's description.

About Advanced Reservations

If a deadline is indicated, it means that we must let the manufacturer know how many items we want to order. To make sure you get yours, place your order with us before that date. After that date, or after the manufacturer releases the product, we may only be able to get what is still available. Many times items sell out before the product is even available. Conversely, if the manufacturer doesn't get enough pre-orders for a particular product, they may not produce the item. Item descriptions and pricing are based on manufacturer-provided materials, and we cannot be held accountable for errors, omissions, or future changes in pricing or product.
