    Not angry, just surprised

    I ordered one of the in stock tarps and it's been 2 weeks for me, as well. I don't need the tarp right now (a micro isn't going to do me a whole heck of a lot of good in the MN winter), but I have been a little surprised at the level of service given OES's reputation.

    I'm sure he's VERY busy with the move and closing down, that's not an easy time for anyone. Some sort of communication would have been nice even if it had just been a notice at the time of ordering that it would take a couple of weeks for even in stock product.

    I know I'll get the tarp and I'm sure I'll love it.

    like others have said he is a one man operation .... sometimes it takes time before he gets back to people be calm
    my last order from him took a few weeks it also depends on where your order is in... well the order he got it
    give it time i'm sure you will get your tarp
    him not getting back to people is something that comes up from time to time
    he is very busy but i never heard of someone not getting there tarp he has been at it for many years ... trust us
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    just saying if he's not going to send out a tarp for weeks and weeks that's fine. I understand that with a one man job. But don't charge my credit card when I place the order and go no contact for 16 days now, but also send out other people's orders that came in after, which shows you're in the shop.

    I'm really not trying to make him look bad and ruin his reputation. I've looked at buying his tarps from over a year because of their quality, so when I heard he was closing up shop I ordered 2.

    Think of this as an important moment along the path of acquiring your equipment. You must crawl before you can run. Next time you see this exact same thread topic pop up again here or somewhere else, you'll be able to kick back and say "It's not so bad, he's a one man/family operation! I got mine, so cut some slack why don't ya." It's beautiful watching all you guys grow up

    My order to close to two months for the order date to the delivery. He made it up to me, and the quality is as good as everyone claimed. I have learned to order from the cottage folks when I can afford the item as opposed to when I need it. There is a certain amount of zen required in these transactions. Good luck to you.

    I'm surprised he is doing anymore custom tarps, I heard he sold his sewing machine. I thought he was just liquidating his in stock tarps...

    Was that the 12x10 tarp that he had listed as a cosmetic 2nd? I tried to pick that one, but when I got to the order page it was gone. Nice grab!
