Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays


We at Arms and Armor hope you have a great holiday season and want to Thank You for all your patronage and support this year.

If you have not seen the thread on our new items we would like to invite you to check out the new pieces on our website ARMS & ARMOR News while we are not exactly elves we do try hard to make sure everyone who is hoping for an A&A piece under the tree has it on time for the 25th so if you are still hoping to order something or your significant other needs a few clues just let them know there is a list of items ready to ship on the news page of our website. We update it often so if it is there it should be ready for pre Christmas delivery.

Here is a gift for everyone, two new desktops of the season to adorn your computer with some holiday cheer. Download for your computer and all your friends at the office Happy

Craig,

That ready-to-ship list is a good idea.

Sure is.

Next thing you need is a gift registry, especially for Russ (or maybe just a Russ needs list). I can't imagine his poor wife can keep track of what he does and does not have anymore! Wink

Craig;

Being able to see a ready to ship list can be very useful for clients to see if their project / sword is ready or at least that it's not:
As in no point waiting at home for it this week. Eek! Laughing Out Loud

I still personally want an E-Mail telling me to be ready for the package to arrive and tracking info: Hate missing the delivery as much as waiting for nothing days before arrival is even possible.

Ready to ship: Imminent shipping a day or two or a ballpark week or two ?

Oh, good P.R. in itself and might even encourage more sales ! ( Bandwagon effect )

Jean

P.S. Looking forward to my Langue de Boeuf. Big Grin ( Couldn't resist ...... Hint Hint Hint. Laughing Out Loud )

Jean, the ready to ship list is for items sitting on the shelf unordered and ready for immediate delivery. These aren't customer orders. They're *done* and waiting to be ordered for Christmas presents or whatever.

Nathan;

Well that is very good also: it's nice to know what you could buy and get A.S.A.P.

Maybe I should have had a look at that ready list before posting: Probably very obvious just looking at the ready list. Blush Laughing Out Loud

Wonder what this will do to Bob Burns " restraint " in budgetting his next A & A purchase. Eek! ( Hope you don't mind a little friendly teasing Bob. Big Grin )

Yeah imagine that... Wink It's hard for her to give me a hard time about having to much steel lying about when she's not entirely sure who all the steel lying around belongs too... Wink

Yup, I'm very secure with my Knighthood. Razz

Actually, I think it looks that way through those rose-colored glasses... Razz

Totally kidding, Russ...

It's actually a light tan - the white wool was too white for my liking... I think the manipulation of the full-size photo plus changing file formats may have pinked out the color a bit... little "sneak preview" of that Templar kit I've been mentioning here and there, but this is far from the finished product it's turned out to be.

LOL Laughing Out Loud I'm totally going to get you one of those medieval torture swords to go with that outfit. :P

Okay now we are all waiting in anticipation to see this new kit, when is the unveiling?

Hey Guys

Aaron the kit looks good I am looking forward to seeing the whole deal. While secure in your Knighthood I still think you could have pulled off the white, with your heart of purity and chaste spirit.

Russ's wife knows to call and ask if she is unsure, but my guess is Russ may not be as suttle as he thinks when dropping hints around the house about what he would like Happy

Thanks for pointing out the link I fixed it in the top post.

Best

I keep staring at that new Lombardy rapier...

*I don't need another rapier, I don't need another rapier, I don't need another rapier...*

I was wondering, Craig, since you guys have an option for a slightly less finished practice longsword, will you offer this for the rapiers with a nail head?

*COUGH* Heart of purity and chaste spirit??!!???? Just a second whilst I catch my breath from laughing so hard. Ummmm........okay, the "pink" does give something of an effect, but come on......

Sorry Aaron, I couldn't resist. Patrick should have warned ya' that I do get even for past evil deeds. :} Seriously, the kit looks like it will be very interesting. Can't wait to see the finished product.

For me it's "Where to get the money, where is it? I wonder if there's enough under the couch cushions?"

Man I love that one and I haven't bought a rapier in several years.
