Please Note: althoguh it was necessary to cancel being at the Springfield show, I will still be at Denver. I will be gone for 2 weeks to do the Denver show. The last day packages can be mailed before leaving and the Labor Day holiday is Saturday, the 31st of August. Any payments made before midnight of the night before will be mailed that day. Otherwise, the next chance to get packages mailed will be Wednesday, September 17th. While I am gone, specimens can be reserved and Maryann wil be able to weigh the specimens and calculate the postage and payment can be received. For regular customers who send checks, if a check is on its way when I am leaving, packages can be packed before I leave and she can mail them after the check arrives. Thanks for your patience.
