New Shipping Policy
Since the 2010 holidays, we are seeing an increase in delivery incidents with our shipping vendor. For this reason, all FedEx shipping will be requiring ‘Indirect Signature’ upon delivery. Indirect Signature can be obtained from anyone at the delivery address, a neighbor, HOA manager, etc. This is not meant to present an inconvenience, but to ensure that if a loss occurs, it will be covered by the shipping vendor.
Quote of the Week
"Gold was not selected arbitrarily by governments to be the monetary standard. Gold had developed for many centuries on the free market as the best money; as the commodity providing the most stable and desirable monetary medium."
