The ASW store's offering of the line of Saphir shoe care products earlier this month was unexpectedly well received thanks to a discussion on Style Forum, and we sold out of several items within 24 hours without ever mentioning the line here (Saphir is generally considered the highest quality line of shoe care products in the world). We are still out of the chamois cloths but otherwise the entire line is now back in stock, including the Renovateur conditioner. Any remaining backorders will ship Tuesday.
I am also quite happy to report that it appears as though we have fixed the difficulty we were having processing some valid credit cards from outside the United States. And, we now accept American Express cards in addition to Visa, Mastercard, Discover, PayPal, Google Checkout, checks and wire transfers.
Some readers may not know that we pay a little more to our carriers to offset the carbon cost of each shipment. In addition, this week we have found a recyclable cellulose replacement for the plastic packing we had been using to fill voids in the boxes. We'll be using the plastic for a while longer as we have to set the cellulose rolls up where they can be used for packing but change is on the way.
And finally, the site has been certified safe from a technical standpoint by McAfee Secure, whose logo will begin appearing on the home page shortly after we figure out how to place it there.
I hope to see you at the store.
