1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks for the heads up, is it a coupon code or just automatic?

    I think it's just automatic and it's great timing after I just bought a BoO shirt from them.

    Question about Blue Bee, do they actually ever mark any of their prices down (this weekend doesn't count) I've never actually seen anything on sale or anything.

    Yeah I could have guessed. I'm on the opposite end of the country, of course.

    I kinda like the purple leather ymc zip sneakers. I really don't need them but pretty cool. I wish there were more shoes i liked included in that sale.

    That's unfortunate, especially given that Seattle markups are some of the highest in the States. LA, SF, and NYC tend to be lower, and Chicago is perhaps, as a whole, lowest of all. Not to mention that this will make their prices non-competetive with online retailers which carry similar stock. I like Blackbird, but excepting several brands like APC, Bless, and Skull, their stock is not exclusive enough for them to be the "goto" store, without their discount.

    Yea, i'm dissapointed too. Especially since they're pretty stingy with free shipping. I guess i can understand as they're starting to try and move to slightly higher end with all the geller, dbss, ervell, bless and others while phasing out the cheap-mid range stuff like bson, ymc, corpus, etc... Seems like i'm only gonna pick stuff up around sale time from them, but then again, they ususally don't have much left.

    I don't think the owners of other local stores will mind - I've heard many complaints where people try to get lower prices out of them just because Blackbird gives them an x% discount.

    Sure, but they are the competition. Of course the competition is not going to mind. I like Seattle stores. In general, the sales staff are friendly and unpretentious. However, the majority of the boutiques really cannot compete in terms of internet sales, even if they wanted to. The markups are simply too high to get that market.

    I've made the majority of my recent purchases from blackbird, soley due to the discount beating the price everywhere else...

    I have a hard time buying anything without some sort of discount

    Unfortunately they're not as competitive with each other as much as I'd like. Many of the downtown stores have either dropped lines or canceled orders just because of Blackbird's buys of the same stuff.

    Exactly.
