Please note that our website does not run what is called "Live Inventory". Since shoppers around the world may place an order at anytime 24/7, backorders are always a possibility.
We do our best to plan and stock adequate inventory, but it is impossible to predict the popularity and/or availability of any item at a specific time.
In the event of a backorder we will send you an email letting you know what items they are and how we are handling your order.
We want you to receive your order as quickly as possible and we do our very best to keep an adequate on-going supply of inventory.

For example, sometimes we experience an unexpected "run" on a particular item way beyond the normal sales level. Sometimes we offer a new item that is sought after at a higher than anticipated level.
