Supply Situation

Still without any full-line distributor here in Ontario, you'd think getting supplies might be an issue. 
And it might be. 
For some.
But apparently not us. 
We just took delivery of our 9th truck shipment in five weeks and the store has never been this full.
In today- all English Muffles and Spectrum Rough Rolls, bevels such as the 1 3/4" x 3" diamonds (the most popular size), all o/s Spectrum fusibles (now at 100% coverage!), including some very cool Fusers Reserves-

Aanraku bails, chemicals (some new and larger sizes), Morton work surfaces, fruit makers and sifters, and it goes on and on (as does Mikey... Wanna Opal)...

Of special note- we've got more of the newest Spectrum Almond in. This is a very clever glass (unlike Mikey ... Vanna Opal). In its cold state (like Vanna?... Mikey), it looks like an Almond Opal, but when fused you can see that the center lightens considerably while the outer edge remains its original colour, creating stunning effects in pieces built on-edge, or stacked.
Very tricky (like Vanna… Mikey).
