Every year I have a year end clearance sale to sell off all of the current year's inventory.
I usually run the sale from the day after Christmas until the New Year.

This Year the Clearance Sale is starting early.
It has just started, so the sale is going on now!

This Link will take you to the sale (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/StoreFront)

Everything in Every Category is marked down.
12/18 through 12/24 everything in the store is marked down 30%
Then with whatever is still left, there will be an even bigger discount.
12/25 through 12/31 everything will be marked down 40%.

If you are a repeat customer you can get an additional 20% discount by entering the letters repeat where it asks if you have a promotional code during checkout. Brand new customers can use the repeat discount as long as they are getting 2 or more items.
Free Shipping Worldwide & Money Back Guarantee.

My goal is to have everything in the store sold out by New Year's Eve.
That way I can re-open the store on the 1st with all new inventory that you haven't seen before.
There are hundreds of new pieces being stabilized right now that should show up in time for the new year.

I hope all of you have a great Christmas and New Years.
Thank You all for making 2012 such a great year.

Your Friend, Mark

Dangit, I promised myself no more wood until I used the stuff I had. Yet another broken promise.

Matt, what're you looking for?

I'm getting this: http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/the-7513/%237158-Stabilized-Oregon-Maple/Detail
But for some reason when I try to pay through paypal I get kicked back to the merchant. It should get taken care of.

That means someone beat you to it.

There were a couple people who grabbed them.
I am surprised at the number of Bog Oak (9) and Redwood (21) that are still left.

Wanted some dark saya material but all are sold out :(

12-19-2012, 03:13 PM

More than half of the store inventory went away overnight.
But...... there are still some really nice pieces left. These are the lowest prices of the whole year.
I would go out of business at these prices through the year. But this is year end so I get to clear out everything even if some of the pieces sell at a loss.
We both benefit from this.
You get low prices on really nice wood.
and... I get to start the new year with all new pieces.

These are the pieces that were still available when I looked about an hour ago.
Sorry about the poor photos. This is just to show what is still in the store.

Thanks Mark Thank You and Merry Christmas.
There are a few guys here that do great handles.

I got a chuckle when I saw that someone from Hawaii bought all the remaining stabilized koa.

Wow just looked, and at this time you only have 7 items for sale in the whole store.

There are just a few items left.

One piece of natural Olive (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/the-NATURAL-WOOD--dsh--not-stabilized/Categories) from California

Three sets of thin Koa Scales (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/the-SCALES-fdsh-SLABS--dsh--Matched-Sets/Categories)

After these last few pieces go away the store will close down temporarily.
There are a couple hundred new pieces that I will be cleaning up and getting ready for the 2013 store re-opening.
Thank You to everyone for making 2012 such a good year!

The last piece in the store just went away a few minutes ago.
Thank You everyone for making 2012 a great year.

There are lots of new stabilized pieces that I will be cleaning up and getting ready for the web store's re-opening.
The re-opening will most likely be on the 1st. Sooner if I am able.
I will post a new thread with group photos of the new wood as soon as I re-open the store.

Thank You to everyone that helped to make 2012 a great year.
Everything that was paid for has been shipped.
Bear in mind that the Post Office is still recovering from the busy holiday season so things are a lot slower than usual.
International customers are seeing even bigger delays waiting for packages to clear customs in their countries.
