    Who cares what they have in the web store? Just look up the model you want on the regular website and email Betty to see if a pair is available...

    I believe she may be one of the owners.
    She usually handles the inquiries.

    So it looks like prices are up 20% across the board.

    Are Carmina still the best value for money mid range shoe out?

    Sure does.

    I had been vacillating about whether or not to get a pair of the single monks I have had my eye on.

    Lay awake last night thinking about it, wondering how much the price increases were going to be, before I decided to get out of bed and order them just in time.

    Very effective sales tactic, Carmina.

    Are you sure you're not just looking without logging in -- thus seeing prices including VAT?

    I'm not seeing any increase.
