NEW ITEM!

The "Kitchen Cavy" refrigerator magnets that some of you voted on last week are in! These have been hand-made for me by James Grosclose (maker of the Holiday Cavy wooden ornaments and Key Cavy pigs that I sold last year):

I have a limited quantity of these to start with, and they are being offered at an introductory price of only $1.50 plus $1.00 shipping!

These really are cute -- I have 3 on my fridge at the moment. :)

I love the bottom one! Is that a little bear? I hope you have more than one of them!

Lynx, this gives a better idea of the size:

Bugs, yes -- he "brands" each of his creations with a little bear. Sort of his logo. :}

I pm'd you through the GL mailer and got an "out of office" response. Please save me one until you get your mail.

I ordered two via your site, Sef (one dark hardwood and one tri-color). They are extremely cute!

BeanieBaby11 -- thanks very much for the link. That company has a soft-sided case that I really like (red, too). I contacted them this morning to see if I could order a single case (they come in quantities of 10+), they told me yes but the shipping is $8.99! Ouch! :(

Oof! Sorry about that - online shopping is so easy but shipping stinks! Well, good luck with your search, I will be on the lookout for inexpensive first aid cases!

I know...that was disappointing (about the shipping). Oh well...the search continues.


Thanks for the magnet orders! I am boxing them up and will ship them out first thing on Monday. Bugs -- I will send you a PM to see which ones you want.

I would think the vinyl ones would also be lighter weight for you to ship to your customers (unless you are doing Priority and the total weight is under a pound anyway). Hey, have you seen the small flat rate boxes? I think they ship for under $5.

Bytxlaura -- Thanks! I'm having him make a few more of the dark piggies for me, so I'll post your order mid-week if that's okay. :)

Got your order, too, Pikatot. Thanks!!

Thanks, Bytxlaura! I'll send you an email when they ship. :)

UPDATE: I'm going to be ordering these next week (just the empty bag; not the contents):

Image

When I figured out the shipping for a quantity of 10, the bags really only end up being around $3.50 each -- not bad at all. I'm hoping they'll be as nice as the ones I've been using. They are almost the exact same dimensions (maybe slightly larger). And they're red, which is surprisingly hard to find in a zippered bag.

Thank you, BeanieBaby11, for finding them!

By the way...I'd love to get a few more testimonials on the Cavy Kits before I offer them again. ;) Thanks!
