    I send all my deliveries through our local Postal Annex, and they call me as soon as stuff arrives. suh-weet! I see my pkg is in town and loaded for delivery. Wonder if it will arrive this morning?

      The beloved finally decided to commit to an empire builder .... though since he already has the brain cell for it I really don't know what all the thinking was about ......

      So just placed a mega order for the EB and my (ok, our) ipad ristretto and a mess of accessories.....

      sooo tempted to throw in an imago but that would have held up the order waiting for the right colour ... once the order is placed I want it asap!!

        My Little Swift was supposed to be delivered today but this is what it says in the UPS tracking website:

        24/05/2011 5:11 The package is delayed due to circumstances beyond UPS' control / Delivery rescheduled

          Deliveries in the midwest and eastern U.S might be affected by tornado and flood events. In Europe, the Icelandic volcano might delay air traffic.

            Out for delivery now!!
            It was probably due to volcanic ash, many flights to Scotland are cancelled.

              It's here!!

              First impresions: I love every single thing I ordered, the Little Swift is VERY cute, perfect size to use as an everyday bag, I will post some pictures as soon as I can.

              Many thanks to Tom, Darcy, Katy and everybody else at the Tom Bihn factory!

                  I wonder if I went over there and knocked on the door politely would the customs people hand over my stuff?

                    I won a TB bag in a giveaway on YouTube just over 2 months ago. Still waiting for it to arrive here in Australia (and no, apparently it wasn't sent sea mail). I'm not holding my breath. I decided long ago that I'll never see it. :-(

                    So I totally "get" the TB anticipation syndrome, but I moved on from it a long time ago. Sigh.

                      Arrived! whooohooo... 5 days from order to delivery half way around the globe.

                      Must admit UPS is impressive - a cardboard box sealed with a single strip of tape delivered in perfect condition in pouring rain. I use USPS for most of my US purchases because I prefer to send to my PO box rather than my street address and there's no way a package like this would make it via the post.

                      oooh more pouches than I can think what do do with ... (that won't last long)

                          For myself - a couple of padded (black) smalls and three small clear fronted - iberian, navy and olive. Plus a few key straps and a packing cube.

                          Not in the pic is my plum/wasabi ipad ristretto and the Beloved's empire builder. The bulk of the pouches were for him as he likes to have one cable per pouch - I don't mind doubling them up a bit. I think we have a sample of pretty much all the colours now. It was fun divvying up the pouches.

                          One tends to be a bit strategic with the purchases to maximize the international shipping value. This will be the last purchase for a while.

                          I'll post in the packing list forum once I've used my ristretto for a bit.

                            That's no fun. Who was sponsoring the giveaway? I assume you've tried contacting them for a tracking number?
                            Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                            Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

                              Hi Darcy, I'll email you offline - I don't really want to air dirty washing publicly. But, yes, I've definitely contacted them. :-(

                                burning with anticipation, at least I got to fondle my TB bags before they were shipped. . . Monday can't come quickly enough though!

                                I really, really like TB Bags!
