Every year Light O Rama has a Summer Sale. The time frame is usually around the first week of July. This year there were several factors including the Japan catastrophes that set the sale back. Several items are on back order because their origin is Japan. This made it really hard for Dan and the crew over at LOR to plan the usual sale. They did their best and have now, the second week of September, started mini sales. They were not able to do the usual everything on sale at the same time type of sale, but did manage to still have a wonderful sale. I was lucky as the item I had to have to complete my show this year were the first item to go on sale. I purchased the three cosmic color ribbons that I have been waiting on all year and I still got them at a $150 discount. I have already been notified that my items have shipped. This is not too bad since they are extremely busy with all of the anxious customers who have been awaiting the sale bombarding them with orders in the first day I am sure. I placed my order yesterday, 9/7/11 and am set to get it at my house on or before 9/13/11. I have absolutely no complaints about a week turn around, especially since Dan is taking care of all shipping charges during the sale. I just wanted to tell of my joy that the LOR crew gave me yesterday at 11:41 when my phone showed me the most anticipated email of my life. Thanks LOR for the AWESOME products you supply us all with.
