Backorders/Out of stock Items - we have changed things so you can order things that are out of stock.

We accept orders for things that are out of stock. However we will not ship you order to you until we can send it to you all at once. We will hold on to you order until everything on it is available.

  • If you want something urgently only order it if it is in stock
  • If you want something that is out of stock then order it and we will add it to our next monthly order from VEX.
  • If you mix in stock items with out of stock items your order will be held until everything is in stock.
  • We will need payment even though the backorder has not been delivered.
