I can't find what I'm looking for in the boutique!

If you can’t find what you are looking for, your best bet for a fast response is to contact us via email. Some of our products are no longer available (they’ve been retired by the manufacturers) and some are temporarily on back order.

Will you send me a catalog of the items you sell in your store?

We do not, at this time, offer a printed catalog. We are an online catalog and planning resource so you can find the majority of our items and prices online. There are always exceptions to that rule, however, so feel free to contact us with questions about products and custom orders.
