Far overdue, we want to update everyone who have taken a great interest in the launch of our first line of Vere Sandals. First of all thanks again for backing us. With your help, we have been able to secure the deliveries on the raw materials for the spring and summer. Standard procedure for a startup is to have a few unforeseen delays pop up at the last minute. While we have taken care of these it still translates to a later delivery date for our Kickstarter backers. For that we apologize for the additional wait.
Thank you to those who have returned their surveys to us. We understand there have been issues for some not receiving the surveys. The survey responses helped play a key role in generating the raw material orders for the season now that we have an idea of the sizes styles and colors. For those few who do not have the surveys in, you can still do so by going back to kickstarter.com and logging in. After the login, you will see a reminder at the top of the page that a survey is due for the Vere Sandals project. That information will come directly to us and we will be able to fulfill your backer request.
The important part of this update? Status of deliveries. With raw materials ordered we expect to have everything in place to finalize production by the end of May with shipments beginning in Mid-June.
Thank you for all of your support with our venture, and now with our patience. It has all been paramount in allowing us to get as far as we have. Please hold on and get another month out of your current sandals. We will be sure to get American made sandals on your feet in time to enjoy the hot summer months wherever you may be.
Now go outside.
Mike & John
