Went to web site this morning to figure out my next order,main page says shut down till further notice.
Man I hope everything and everyone is okay. I got a lot of their stone walls and Hedges,they are awesome. I know it sounds selfish but I hope if they do not re-open I can find something both as nice and economical as their stuff. I was going to start buying buildings for both ACW and FOW.
First JR now this man,this sucks.

Well, JR was quickly brought back, so no worries there.

I know Dan @ Fox was facing a series of personal crises and found he was not able to keep up with the business. I know he was considering selling or bringing in a partner, but last I heard (late Sept) he was going to chill, take care of some personal stuff and revisit his options in the New Year.

I have quite a bit of Fox--nice stuff--very cleanly cast and painted! Hope he comes back!

Well,the kind of casting he does what kind of space you looking at and cash out lay?

There was a series of illnesses in the family in December. Perhaps that's the cause.

He dropped me an e-mail today asking about Little Wars. So looks like he's coming back in some form or another.

Thats good to hear, Extra Crispy, I have some of his stuff and I like it enough to get some more of the specialised pieces.

Janet and I appreciate your concern and kind words. Basically we were hit pretty hard with a number of family tragedies.

1) The main result was very poor wording on my part. I suffered a pretty bad concussion, and I thought I was going to have a long hospital stay. I am fine now.

2) We suffered 2 deaths almost back to back.

3) We have 3 rescue dogs, and they were poisoned. One died, one almost died, and the other was sick for a few days.

4) Janet's father, age 94 and a WWI doctor on Guadalcanal, is terminally ill. Janet is his primary giver, so she spends most of the time in Knoxville, TN, and we live in the Atlanta metro area.

All of these things have been pretty tough. However, we have adjusted and have worked through everything.

We are back up and running. I will sculpting new products, re-sculpting some of our older products for most of February and march.

Everyone has been extremely kind and patient. We really appreciate everyone. We don't just want customers. We want friends.

Dan & Janet Fox
