More info:

- We are currently stitching up a record number of items. When we originally announced our closure, we had no idea how many orders we would get and had to estimate how long it would take to make & ship everything. We know that some of you have been waiting many weeks and we want to assure you that we haven't forgotten about you! We are processing orders as quickly as we can but it is taking time with the volume we are dealing with. Normally we wouldn't ask folks to wait so long, but under these special circumstances, we hope you can be patient and understanding of us! 



- Christmas: As of end of day, Friday Dec 13th, if you haven't received a shipping notification, your order will not arrive by Christmas Day. Rest assured, as always, we are making and shipping everything just as soon as we can.


- Missed out on ordering? Check these places for our goods:

Memento in Portland, Oregon currently has some stock  (as of 12/13) + we are making an order for them so they will have more bags & wallets in the near future

Handmade Showroom in Seattle, Washington

Mohair Pear in Cedar Hills, Iowa.

Ebay + Portland Consignment shops often have older Queen Bee bags

*Please Note* -- Rebecca will not be able to take on any QB repairs after we close.

- J.D’s Shoe Repair in PDX. (N. Greely) (http://www.jdshoerepair.com/)

-Not in PDX? Look up local shoe repair shops in your area! Most should be able to take on bag repairs as the tools & machinery translate over. If that store cannot do your repair, they should have a recommendation.
