It has been 1 week since I announced I will be closing TMD on Dec 31, 2022, and you have already placed orders totaling more than 4 months of normal sales! All I can say is, WOW! JUST WOW!
Thanks you — SOOO MUCH!
You have humbled me many times over the years, but never like this. I knew there would be a rush, but I never expected anything like this. I honestly don’t know what to say. Thanks, to all of you.
Now, for the hard part: getting things shipped. As of the time I write this, I have taken a total of 82 orders since the announcement last Friday. I have shipped 33 orders, for a total of 40% of all orders received. I also handled 1 customer service issue. Given that I took Monday off to be with BB during the Labor Day holiday, I think I did OK.
Now, I will not be nearly as impressive the next few weeks. The smaller orders are shipped, and now I turn to those orders between $100 — $250ish in size. These will take me 2-3 weeks to get shipped. I am going to do everything I can to have them out of here by the end of September, but no promises.
If you are one of the dozen customers who placed orders larger than $250, all I can tell you is to hang tight. I WILL GET TO YOU! IF all goes well — and I can keep up with new orders as I ship this next batch, I hope to have you guys with the big orders out the door by the end of October. It is an ambitious schedule, but I am going to aim high and work hard to hit the goal.
I will keep everyone posted as we move forward. You can still place your orders, but, please, understand that shipping will be slower than you are used to for the rest of the year. That said, YOU WILL GET YOUR ORDER! No one loses their money with TMD. I will also keep up the quality of my product. I plan to keep pouring new molds right up until the very last order is shipped.

Thank you and stay safe,
