In a world of online sales, it stopped us from being able to assure that our customers can receive a level of service similar to walking through our doors. It is because of these reasons that we decided to stop all online sales. All we ask is that you call us instead. We ship world wide, and can take payment over the phone, but you will need to talk with an actual person if you would like to order from us.
