banner swatch emoticons ooto lrg3/18/15 I will be out of the shop from Thursday, March 19 - Monday, March 23.--NOTE: We extended our trip until 3/26! All orders for in stock items such as Cactus Juice and dyes should ship as normal. Gaige, my right hand, will be here filling orders and shipping while I am away. I will NOT have phone service and will NOT be checking phone messages or e-mail until after I return. Then it may be a few days before I get caught up so your patience is appreciated. Taking my wife and 9 year old daughter on an RV trip for spring break!
