Taking Things to the Next Level!

Taking Things to the Next Level!

I know that a number of you may have noticed that it's been taking me longer to ship orders and reply to emails. There's a reason for this, or actually multiple reasons. The first reason is obvious. Covid-19 has resulted suspensions and delays in the postal service, and has forced me to reship a ton returned items through surface mail. I'm still trying to catch up from that.
