The books came in and I spent a lot of yesterday processing the back log. However, it wasn’t until I got to the post office late yesterday afternoon that I realized the post office was closed for a holiday. Therefore, all the shipping notices I sent out yesterday are erroneous since I can’t ship until today. Wholesale orders will be shipped tomorrow.
Interestingly enough -or rather, depressingly enough- fewer than 5 people who requested notification of product arrival have made their purchases. Financially speaking, I’ve certainly taken a beating over the past two weeks. The situation brings to mind the debate over Lean LV; while exclusivity may rate highly as a factor of public prestige, you don’t make any money if you’re out of stock. You’ll lose some buyers forever if they can’t buy it the minute they decide they need it.
