Thank you very much for your order. Due to our annual holiday/vacation from December 15th, 2023 through January 1st, 2024, your credit card will be charged, but your order will not begin processing until our return on January 2nd, 2024. To avoid being charged prior to shipment, you may want to choose "Pay with PO" rather than credit card and we’ll contact you for card info when the order is processed. We apologize for any inconvenience. Happy Holidays.
