So everyone is wondering what the hold up with the new vibes is. Well, they’ve been sitting in California for the last couple of weeks, confiscated by customs due to “non-compliance”.
It seems that the most recent escalation in this lovely trade war between the U.S. and China has resulted in a cracking down on regulatory details, and unbeknownst to me, your vibes needed to be in shrink-wrapped packaging that proudly declares “Made in China” on it.
All of this has led to a delightful (cough) and fruitless one way exchange between myself and US customs, who have finally broken their silence by declaring that the best course of action is for them to throw thousands of dollars of product into landfill. At least I didn’t have to pay 25% more in tarifs, right? Oh wait…that’s a thing now too. #facepalm
All of this is to say, I’m so sorry for the delay. It has been unanticipated, very costly and frankly horrendously frustrating. BUT! The manufacturer has more on the way, and I’ve done everything within my power to ensure that they won’t be held up by the same minutiae.
