Great News - Lower Prices!!

It's been about 4 years since we started as the representative for Ottobre Design magazine. Ever since then the dollar has been dropping in value against the Euro, which means we have had to raise our prices several times to keep on a par with the actual price of the magazines. We always try to keep our US dollar prices equal to the Euro price. That means we have to watch the exchange rate and make our adjustments as they come along. For the past 4 years that has meant several price hikes and not one price reduction. The exchange rate was so poor last month, we didn't even make the adjustment up, hoping the rate would soon drop back down. Well, it has not only dropped enough for us not to have to institute another hike, but it has dropped enough so we can actually LOWER the prices of the magazines and subscriptions. A subscription for all 6 issues (women's and children's) has now dropped from $79 to $75. It was actually $81 at one point last month according to the actual exchange rate. If this trend continues, we'll be back with another price reduction.
How nice is this considering most everything else is going up right now.
Our website may take a day or two to get updated. If you order before the changes are posted, we'll make the adjustment for you.
