Group Buy: New Glass from Encore

SHW member Brad Sanborn is coordinating a group buy for new wine bottles at a special price from Encore in Fairfield. Brad offers to pick up the glass but participants will need to pick up their order from him on same day as he doesn’t have room in Sacramento to store. If group buy is larger than Brad can alone transport, he’ll be looking for volunteers to help out.

$5 case (still working out the deets). Pre-paid orders only; no COD.  Contact Brad directly at 916 425-4950 no later than June 6 for pick-up in 3rd week of June.  SHW members only.
