    The woman I dealt with the first time in the shop wouldn’t believe me that it was just the distributor that closed, and not Windstone itself, but I noticed she was way at the back of the store when I visited again. The owner seems to have the story straight though, and that’s the important one! πŸ˜€

    She did warn me that the pieces would likely be a bit more expensive here from now on, but being as I wasn’t aware of Windstones before the distributor was out of the picture, that really won’t scare me off

    Hey at least you won’t have to worry about customs or breakage!!!

    I was in the store that I’ve been soliciting and the sales girl said they were still waiting for their order since like 3 month ago which is funny cause I was there less than a month ago and talked to the manager and she said they hadn’t ordered since the Canadian distributor stopped carrying Windstones. But I did tell her to pass on the request to the manager! :mrgreen:

    Just keep pestering! We tried not to be a pain, but we kept on asking every time we were in town. They didn’t have the chance to forget!

    And yes, that’s exactly what I don’t want to deal with: breakage and especially customs. The bill they slapped on my two PYO’s when they came into Canada was insane πŸ˜•

    Arya, I just wanted to mention… Whenever you get something from the US, try to use USPS for shipping. If you use a courrier service (USP, FedEx, DHL, or whichever) you get slapped with a brokerage fee, up to 40% of item value. But if you use USPS you only get to pay taxes on it. I learned the hard way!

    40%…ouch! I will have to keep that in mind, thank you! 😯

    Please do encourage your local dealers to carry Windstones! πŸ™‚ As littleironhorse said, many Canadian retailers and shops do not know of the situation with Windstone, but Windstone will wholesale to them directly now. The best part is that if a shop you recommend to Windstone starts carrying them, you can get a free Windstone pieces from the factory as a thank you gift!! Check it out here:
