Franklin Show was awesome and we will have some things to list from there, but sales were brisk! At least one of us will be at the Charleston Show the first weekend in January.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.
