Bring on the new M&E

Posted on February 24, 2014 by Jonathan Garvey

There's a lot that goes on behind the scenes at Milly and Eugene. I've talked earlier about our buying trips but it's what happens after we have put our orders in that it gets interesting and well, also really frustrating at times. The post-ordering period can be bittersweet. We are both excited with anticipation to see our products safe on our shores and then downcast and disappointed with complications in the shipment of our precious cargo. Once our goods are in the custody of our shipping agent, any number of problems can arise. You REALLY need a good shipping agent. They are the ones who wrap, pack and send the goods out onto the high seas bound for Australia. We have heard of containers going overboard at sea. Luckily nothing that bad has happened, YET!!!! But there has been a slight problem with our latest delivery and we are working madly from this end to get them here ASAP. Just another hiccup here at M and E!
