Upcoming Shop Closures & Order Notes
Head’s Up…Golden Witch has several shop closures coming up in the relatively near future. Late in 2017 GW will be closed for our annual Christmas break from December 21st – January 2nd. Please plan ahead and order ahead of your needs…we’re extremely busy this year. As always, please order custom products well in advance of shop closures to avoid unnecessary delays. If you need holiday gifts that are the least bit custom, please order by the first week of December. Following Christmas break, the next closures will be February 23rd – March 5th and then April 20th – April 30th. I tend to work non-stop when the shop is open, so I sincerely appreciate your understanding during those times when I shut down to spend time with family. You may notice a trend here, a new work rhythm that I’m experimenting with so I don’t burn out. Generally speaking, the shop will be open for 6-8 weeks, then closed for a week with a ramp-down Friday and ramp-up Monday on both ends of the closed week. We’re also closed for major holidays. Everyone involved here – Matt, Nikki, Drake, & I - appreciates your business and your patience with custom orders. Golden Witch couldn’t do what we do without you. Thanks! -Russ

Welcome to the Golden Witch Ferrule Advice Ramble! I need to let you, the rodmaker or restorationist reading this page, know that I have lost clients because of ferrules. Ferrules are finicky, challenging, yet almost invariably necessary and worthwhile little beasts.
