I ordered my Oberon cover on Dec. 9th (after emailing w/Don, who said he could get it out of the shop in 4 days) and I got it TODAY!!!  I got an email update that it was completed on the 11th and shipped on the 12th.  I live on the opposite coast and it arrived via USPS Priority Mail in 3 days.  I am soooo stoked!  I love my new World Tree w/velcro, but now I want the Hosukai Wave and maybe a journal or portfolio.  I just love supporting these small independent companies who pride themselves on workmanship and customer service.  Oberon has earned my business for life :)

Congratulations on your new cover, woohoo! And yes, we love Oberon for their commitment to customer service!

Thanks, I was so thrilled when I saw that package in the mailbox this afternoon! Oberon is the best :)

I have the World Tree with corners. Love, love, love it! I know what you mean about wanting another one. I am waiting until after Christmas and then I will decide which one I need next...lol! ;D
I had such a hard time deciding between corners and velcro, so maybe my next cover will be w/corners! I am half tempted to order another one tonight, before they shut down for the holiday, but how do I justify that???!!!

Congrates, Ruby!!!! I'm on the opposite coast as well. I'm patiently waiting & looking out the window to see if a package is there. Silly, as I just ordered Friday night & no one has even contacted me from Oberon, not even DecalGirl for my skins!!! LOL!!! Anticipation...    ***Oh, back to you, as another one said, go for it. If you like your cover so much, get another one  right now & then please let us know which cover, velcro or corners you like best. I am all for supporting an American product made here, with great CS. 1 of my personal grips is having alot of our jobs going out of the country, with all the people here trying so hard to find a job. Whenever I can support a good company here in the USA, I get so excited.    ***You got a computer because you couldn't get on this site yesterday? Great excuse! LOL! Please share. What kind? Yes, I couldn't get on this site last night as well, so you were not alone.

Congratulations Ruby!
Thanks, Linda! I am so totally in awe of the craftsmanship that goes into each and every Oberon product. This could become a rather expensive habit!

Thanks, Toby! I am willing to bet you'll have yours by the end of the week. It's so hard to wait for it though so I totally understand where you're coming from. I didn't get around to ordering anything last night, but I think I will today. I read w/it last night and it felt so good to hold it in my hands. I do love the floating look of the velcro but will def. get corners if I order again.

Toby, I am still on the fence about getting another one!  I want it so badly, but........knowing me I will cave and get it though and will post a comparison.  You'll love yours too when it arrives, I am sure of it.

Ruby, last night I found out that my cover was done & ready to ship. Yipppeeeee!!! The only thing, it said that I might not get it until 12/24. If it does come that day, & I am out of town when it comes, I will be so anxious to get home. -:) It's on it way, so I'm hoping the UPS person doesn't want to work on 12/24 & delivers it by 12/23 or sooner. Now, the only next thing. We are getting a bad snowstorm here in New England.....LOL!!! Oh, the wait..... I can't wait to touch it & study the artwork.
Ruby, which 1 are you getting with corners? I hope you ordered it. I think we should call ourselves Kindle cover collectors.

Congrats Toby, happy to here your Kindle Koat is on the way! ;) Touch, study and don't forget the wonderful smell of leather!

Toby, yay, I'm so excited for you that yours has been shipped already! Which shipping method did you choose? I chose USPS Priority for my first one, it shipped on a Friday and I received in on Monday. I'm in NY, so not far from you. We are currently being hit w/the same storm as you, all schools closed and we are snuggling down for the day/night. I DID order a second one, I'm so bad but I couldn't help myself. I just checked Oberon and mine is done and shipped today too-wooohooo!! I got the Hokusai Wave, my skin has alot of blue in it and I think it will look great. We are definitely Kindle Cover Collectors! Just the other day my husband asked me why I *needed* so many. I didn't know what to tell him! Luckily he is happy that I'm enjoying the kindle and accessories so much. Stay safe :)

Ruby, which blue skin do you have? Yes, love that blue cover as well. Congrats on ordering another one!!!! Tell hubby that you are a kindle cover collector. If he still doesn't get it, tell him it's a girl thing or that's it's a new trend & you are way ahead of the masses in fashion. Oh, tell him that you are a fashionista. That you love to accessorize. ***
Ruby, I was going to order it by USPS, but then a message popped up saying that if my cover is lost, then I lose out, so I ordered by UPS. That means, I think, that UPS doesn't work on the weekends. Oh well. Your shipping method sounds better. As long as I get it, I'll be a happy camper. The way this weather is going, anyway, I might be home, so I can run to the window every few minutes. If I'm not home, by the time I get back, I might just run past my dog & head for the front door & fling it open. LOL! weather report- snow all weekend & below freezing temps. Stay home Ruby & read.

Toby, I have the Blue Flower Burst Skin and really like it. It's easy on the eyes and my fave colors are blues and greens (and those in between). Hubby gets my obsession, he teases me and rolls eyes but it's all fun. I saw that same disclaimer about USPS, but I think they are very careful when packages are mailed priority (knock on wood, never had one lost yet w/all the on-line shopping I do over the yrs.) and it's just plain quicker than UPS Ground. I don't know if UPS works on the weekends, but I hope yours arrives very soon. I heard we are in for more snow tomorrow and it's only in the teens here during the day. Brrrrrrrrrrr!
