We feel like weather women lately, doing our best to predict the future based on a lot of variables. But if one thing has held true in the last year, it’s that shipping rates and times are the challenge. More than ever, we encourage you to plan further out given the possibility of more shutdowns and delays.
A few things we know and how you can plan ahead:
Make your wish list and submit your sales orders to enter the queue of incoming items.
The timeline to receive spring product is going to be delayed approximately 2-4 months.
We want to express our concern and gratitude for our friends in Vietnam. They've been a cornerstone of our business since day one. With factories in the midst of a 90+ day shutdown, we’re eagerly awaiting good news and will keep you posted.
While not yet set in stone, freight costs that exceed prices we can cover will likely continue. A 15% ocean freight surcharge on all warehouse orders is still in place for now.
All of our Italian factories are up, running, and facing fewer shipping obstacles. To introduce more certainty to your plans, look into our Italian-sourced product.
Reasons to Smile:
- We have product ordered and in the pipeline.
- The Italian situation stated above.
- We got to reconnect with you at AmericasMart and anticipate future markets will be in person.
- It’s fall 🍁y'all!
