I just got an email saying new CHA releases are in the store. They've been in the shop for over a week!

Come on, now. If anyone has been reading the message board, you KNOW that everyone is eagerly awaiting Dear Lizzy, Amy Tangerine, and Maggie Holmes. Isn't it mean to send out a "New CHA" items email for product that has been in the shop for more than 7 days?

I am this.close to deleting my cart and shopping somewhere else.

Not cool.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like we will be seeing the new stuff until sometime next week. I agree it is weird to let us know about stuff that was in the shop last week...what is the point of that I don't know. I also find it weird that they didn't get in all the SC last week, as I was able to order all the lines a couple of weeks ago. I wonder what is going on with their ordering? They used to get the new stuff much faster.

I have to say that I got all excited myself when I saw the email...Only to find that this email was about the SAME product that I already saw last week. It left me shaking my head...

I noticed it in the store yesterday. I'm looking for the date stampers. I didn't see them though.

I just placed an order on another site. There is seriously no reason for me to shop here anymore. I can get free shipping on other sites and they have the product earlier. I'll never qualify for the customer loyalty discount here. So why should I wait around and fight the other hundred Peas who are stalking the store for it when I can get it somewhere else?

I am definitely beginning to feel the same way.

I was ok with the loyalty program changes until last week, and now my points are still decreasing on a daily basis.

Issues brought up on the board (release dates, loyalty program questions) are not addressed in a timely manner. It's incredibly frustrating and I've had enough.

Like you said, by the time the AC stuff hits the store I'm going to be fighting the masses to get what I want. It's time to move on, I think.

I am just going to order directly from American Crafts when the Lucky Charm and Yes, Please! lines show up on the site for sale. At least I know they won't sell out immediately if I can't hover on the computer all day to wait for 2Ps to get them in...

My LSS just sent me an email that they have the Amy Tangerine and Dear Lizzy lines in, so I'm guessing they'll be here very soon.

It is UNREAL!! Almost 2 weeks and still NOTHING! IMO it seems like they are not that worried about making money!! Because even if they didn't have the items yet they could have at least posted a thread with an update & expected release dates! A lot of other sites have that available ! Especially after countless peas posting about how annoyed they are that the items aren't here yet and their going else where... I'm sry but if it was my company I would have posted at least an update by now.. Whether there crazy busy or not it would only take a few minutes from there time and it would go along way in this pea community! Unbelievable

Two Peas actually doesn't have the new items yet- Jamie posted a message here that the remaining items from AC just shipped to them, and they expect them in next week. They're also working a list of expected release dates for product lines that they ordered from CHA.

I got that email and raced to shop only to find it was not really new. I do stalk the store pretty much hourly.

I am getting a little impatient. Need to feed my scrap shopping monster.

Me too I was so ready to buy. if I wait, then the other items in my cart are sold out. I want to support the store because of the free classes I take via shimelle, but they are making it so difficult by not having any products or not enough .

Yep I ordered elsewhere and I agree that is mean. People who want the latest and greatest check like every hour. Not worth waiting here. My order from another store is going to be here tomorrow.

Maybe the e-mail was for Peas who don't stalk the store and just wait for the updates to see what is available. Not everyone falls into the rabid shopper category Not everyone knows when CHA was or when the products are supposed to be released.

What I hate is that on the main 2 peas page (when you just go to twopeas.com), there is a huge advertisement for Glitz's Uncharted Waters. It's almost all sold out! Take it down!!!

It's like they're taunting us.

I agree, I thought that e-mail was kind of odd.

I'm pretty sure that if 2Peas could have it in the store they would. They are at the mercy of companies who are all shipping all of their orders out all at once. Someone has to wait. I highly doubt 2Peas is doing this on purpose.

Plus, and I really am trying to say this nicely, it's scrapbooking supplies. Most of us are sitting on an already awesome stash of supplies.

I'm impatiently waiting for the products as well, and missed that message from Jaime. I never thought they were holding it back or being mean. I guess they just weren't first on the ship out list this time around.

As for the email, while I can see it appears strange, this is their normal routine if you pay attention to past emails sent. They usually send an announcement email after the products have been in the store. I'm not sure I understand the reasoning, but just thought I'd point out it's nothing new.

I agree.... I am not in any rush to order anything. I have more than my fair share in my scrap room that has just been sitting there. I decided to use some of that up before I try to cram anymore into my room. In comparison to some, I don't have all that much.

Did you the Glitz is back in stock?

I'm excited too about all the CHA goodies that will roll in over the next couple of months. But I'll confess right here and say I've already filled and shipped out a couple of carts from the new stuff. Clearly I have no patience to wait for it all to come in at one time. LOL!
