Smile Gauging interest in drop curtains

Hi everyone,
It's been about two years since I last offered drop curtains for sale. I've had many requests, but simply haven't been able to commit the time it takes to put an order together.
Long story short, I'm trying to find out if there is enough interest from the community to get a winter order going.

Like everything else, material costs have increased since the last order, so I won't have a firm price until next week when I have a chance to sit down and negotiate with the upholstery shop owner, but the more I have pre-ordered, the more buying power I have. So, if you are seriously interested please email me as soon as possible. I'm guessing the price will be closer to $200, but am going to explore using less expensive materials if the cost goes much higher. I'll let you know next week after my meeting.

If interested please email amvigil(at)comcast(dot)net and include the word "drop curtain" in the subject line.
Please no PM's


Hope everyone is well.

Apples and oranges. Do not order one of mine if you want a Badger, you'll be disappointed.
Feel free to contact me if you want more info.

Okay, it looks like I have enough interest for another run. Please see my advert in the parts for sale section.

Best,
Art

Art's drop curtain is really nice. I ordered one from his last batch. I have no idea what Badgers are like. BUT if I had a second D90 - I would order a second one from Art. ZERO complaints......
