Exciting News from Ottobre

Here is the news we have been waiting for concerning the changes at Ottobre. First of all, they are no longer adding shipping charges into their prices, so costs are now less than before. However, the biggest news is that there will be a Family issue added to the women's and children's issues. The Family issue will have about 10 designs for men and also some designs for teens who fall between the kids' and women's sizes, as well as, some plus-sizes and even maternity designs. Lots going on at Ottobre, as you can see. Our shipment of the children's winter issue is due this week. The first ever Family issue will be out next month. Here is a link to our Ottobre subscription listing with options for the the women's and family issue, too. I'll post more about the Family issue as I get it.
