|Classic American Clothespins|

All systems are go for tomorrow's launch of Classic American clothespins, as explained last Saturday in This Blog Post.
You will be able to purchase assemble-your-own kits of 20 hardwood clothespins. I will be posting a blog right here with the order button at 10:00 am, eastern time tomorrow morning (November 9th).
There are only 225 kits and they will sell, first come, first served. Three people have asked me to hold kits until Sunday for them. I will do that, but I can't do it any more. Holding a lot of kits (pre-selling) and sending invoices adds complication to what could turn out to be a very busy weekend.
I may be wrong, but my sense is that the kits are going to sell out fairly quickly. I have received a remarkable amount of interest in these clothespins, and I have sent a notice to all the people on my Planet Whizbang newsletter list about the sale.
Hopefully, everything will go smoothly. When the kits are sold, they will be all gone. It isn't like I can just order more from some wholesaler to re-sell. These are a unique, handcrafted product, and I will not have more to sell until I make more, which will not be until later next year.
Thank you all!
