We posted the below information back on January 3rd, 2017. It is starting to become a reality. Just as most of us start to take off for the Christmas/New Year's Holiday's, the Chinese celebrate CNY (Chinese New Year) with the same vigor as we do the end of the year holiday's.
With that in mind, there will be shipping delays unless you get your order in soon. Even if you get your order in soon, factories in China are going down to skeleton crews already.
Even though this is happening, we continue to load new product lines as you can never tell which factory is closing down, and which continues to operate. You may see several of the same items as some items are still so popular, they are liquidating quite quickly from our store.
Here is information from our other blog post from 1/3/17:
As a reminder for our shoppers, you'll want to get your order in before Saturday January 28th, 2017. That is the start of the holiday in China of Chinese New Year that is celebrated for like a ~week or more. Shipping and order processing from China will be likely delayed during that time.
Here is a calendar of that time period:
