UPDATE 4/18:
Okay, I went through the bottles that I managed to acquire at C2E2 and I was unable to get Sky City (Before) as well as a few bottles of Anti-Saloon League. For Anti-Saloon League, I am going to decant orders first, and the leftover full bottles will go to those who signed up for it first. If I am unable to provide you with a full bottle of Anti-Saloon League like you requested, I can try and at least provide you with a decant. I will be refunding everyone who ordered Sky City (Before). Other than those scents, it looks like we are in business!

UPDATE 4/18
: Just got back from C2E2 and I must say that it was quite amazing! Sadly, a few things were sold out when I got there. I got there at around 11:30 am on Saturday and the trading post was out of all atmosphere sprays, so I will be refunding people for those. So glad I wasn't going to decant those. This would have been a nightmare! They were short a few things as well, so I will have to go through the tally and see what is missing. The people who paid for decants will get priority as opposed to those I was doing bottle pickups for. The reason for this is that this was originally only supposed to be a decant circle, but I chose to accommodate a few bottle requests as well. I will be printing labels and decanting tomorrow as well as going through and issuing refunds. Stay tuned!

4/14: All payments received! Now the slight problems begin! Hee hee! It would seem that the Atmosphere sprays are going to be $25 each instead of $20, so I will be contacting those with atmosphere sprays about that shortly. Also, apparently Banned in Boston is not actually a C2E2 exclusive, but instead will be available for CBDLF. It is also $26 per bottle instead of $20, so I will be contacting those with this scent in their orders about it shortly. *whew!*

Again, please be sure to check your order and everything on the GoogleDocs page. Also, I am afraid that I won't be decanting the Atmosphere sprays at this time. I don't have the supplies and it would take a bit to get them and all.... Sorry about that!


----------------------

NOTE: We have confirmation!! $26 for the Irredeemable/Witchblade/Neverwhere scents and $20 for the exclusives! Pricing info has been updated below. If this effects your order in any way, please let me know now!!

-----------------------

Your orders can be found on this Google Docs page. Be sure to check it over carefully and let me know if anything is wrong. This is the page I will use to tally up the order, so it is very important that it is correct. Thanks!

-----------------------

I will be decanting the exclusive C2E2 scents. This includes the lines that will be debuting at the event. I will post here with the scents and you can sign up by commenting on this page.


Pricing: The Irredeemable/Witchblade/Neverwhere scents will be $5.25 for a full decant and $2.75 for a half decant. The event exclusives will be $4.25 for a full decant and $2.25 for a half decant.  I will need payment for decants at least 4 days before the event though, since I most likely will not be able to purchase the bottles myself (soooooo many scents!)....


Shipping: As always, shipping is $3 in the US and Canada and $5 everywhere else.


I believe that is all for now... Can't wait to see the scent list!!
