Holiday Savings Continue! Time to buy atlatl gifts for the holidays!

It is getting pretty hectic at the Thunderbird Atlatl shop but we have a great staff of elves working here! We are fortunate that we have people coming in to help us during this busy season. Now is the time to purchase atlatl gifts while our inventory is good. Use the coupon code Holiday Savings and save 10 percent on orders over $100 through Monday, December 5.

We are working up some other special offers as the season continues. We are shipping most of the orders through UPS ground or the post office via priority mail. Unfortunately, shipping has dramatically increased over the last year as shippers face increasing fuel costs and payroll costs. Every box we ship over three feet long gets an oversize fee of a minimum of $15 before shipping costs are added. It is actually more economical to order more items than fewer as the oversize fee is a fixed cost and has nothing to do with weight.

We are missing our beloved canine helper, Tina, again this holiday season (our second without her).

Valentina (Tina) always made sure she rode to the post office every time we went. We miss our loyal helper. We now have Hachi who still has a long way to go on his atlatl training. And, of course, our feline helper, Molly, continues to help out by always being right in the thick of everything we’re doing.

[caption id="attachment_3512" align="aligncenter" width="540"] Molly may look like she is watching over the printer. In reality, she is trying to stop the paper so the printer can jam!

We are busy packing so please order early so we can get your orders out quickly!

Thunderbird Atlatl Updating Shop; Order Early for Holidays!

It was a busy summer for Thunderbird Atlatl as we ventured out to a few of our favorite venues and got to spend time with atlatl friends.

We continue working on shop renovations. Plans are to finish our shipping area in the next month and get ready for the holiday rush.

If you are thinking of ordering a present for the holidays, we strongly urge you to order in November as we do not know how reliable the shipping services will be in December. In 2020, the shipping services were sometimes taking up to three weeks to deliver items they promised to deliver in three to four days. Shipping improved in 2021 and seems to be better in 2022. However, all the shipping services (faced with the same increasing prices we all face) have increased prices in 2022 as they try to cover their increased costs.
We are unable to accommodate any custom or special orders during this busy season. If you have questions, please call us at: 1-800-836-4520 or email at contact@thunderbirdatlatl.com
