This weekend, in response to some long standing grumbles, the store side of the website will be going into maintenance mode as it undergoes a major upgrade. During this time, you may be redirected to read my blithering rather than being able to buy wonderful shiny preciouses. What will this mean to you, The Viewing Public: very little. The front end will be identical but the back side, well, it’s gonna be a pretty sweet tuckus.

Unfortunately, I won’t be ably to import all the conversations I’ve had with people that went with orders from the old store architecture.

I’ll be saving them to read on lonely nights with mood lighting and a nice Chianti, but they won’t translate over to the new store.
