We’re (finally) open!


We’re (finally) open!
by the Site Administrator | November 15, 2014

Dear readers and patrons:

Though many of you have been “shopping” already – for which we thank you – we do want to take this opportunity to mention that we are (at long last) 100% “open for business”:

The pesky “beta” site notice is gone. (Though we still have some work to do, e.g., past and future events.)

After lots of live troubleshooting, with your help, we think we’ve killed most of the bugs, so that browsing and purchasing should be trouble-free. Please let us know otherwise.

To “celebrate,” we’re offering a small token of thanks by inviting you to use this coupon – 8OFFSHIPPING – for free shipping (up to US$8.00) on any order you place on the site through the Feast of Our Lady’s Immaculate Conception (8 Dec.). (Simply put the coupon code into your shopping cart when checking out; if the shipping costs more than $8.00, the coupon will discount your shipping by that much.) It can be used once per customer, so make sure to fill up your order to maximize this benefit. Other Advent & Christmas promotions will immediately follow.

More news & offers are sure to follow. Thank you for everything you’ve done so far to make the new site a success.
