Our WINTER package shipment, which was collected in Feb/March has arrived and cleared customs in Riga, and delivery has begun. The shipment was delayed due to weather conditions on the East coast and Midwest, and the delay compounded by an influx of cargo from the West coast, where piers were experiencing a work shutdown due to labor disputes. 

We have moved the May shipment by approx. 2 weeks so that Winter packages are received before we collect the Spring shipment.
We thank you for your patience and understanding!

If mailing packages directly to our warehouse, please note that as of April 1, 2015 our new warehouse address is: LASL, 84 Harbor Drive, Jersey City, NJ 07305
