Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day weekend! I hope you are putting your Pyrex to good use. I have confirmation that the boat has been unloaded and that the container has moved on to the x-ray facility. Once they confirm that I’m not smuggling, it should be allowed to leave Long Beach. I received all my shipping supplies […]

Boring Update

Kind of a boring weekly update. The ship arrived safely in Long Beach last Monday and it now has to clear customs and be x-rayed. Customs is a waiting game. So I’m getting my packing materials ready and my labels printed and borrowing some teenagers so that we can ship out the books as soon […]

Shiny, Happy Pyrex People has ported in Long Beach!

Chugging Along…

Good morning! Let’s give a big shout out to Michelle who helped me find my Bill of Lading and how to track the vessel. Below is a pic of its GPS location yesterday. The good news is that it is coming from China which is much faster than India. However, I’m hearing that our ports […]

I’m on a Boat!

Good news! I have my shipping number, but they have not provided a tracking number for the cargo ship. I’ll keep pushing. According to Google, below is the expected trade route. Pirates and hurricanes notwithstanding.
