My special order has been APPROVED!!!!!!!!! I am beyond excited about it - I will get my small flap clutch in Ottone!!!! Woo Hoo!!!! Sorry, tPfers, I cannot contain my excitement! The time frame I was given is 12 weeks to ship from Italy, so my SA said to figure I would have it in my hands some time in June. I want to jump up and down!!! Now, I figure they told me June, but truly, I am not expecting to have it before the end of summer....I am counting on some delays. That's ok....I knew it would involve waiting going into this. The high from getting the approval will last quite a while I am sure!!!
