Shipping for Christmas

As per USPS guidelines, here is the cut-off dates to have orders shipped to receive in time for Christmas:

2021 Holiday Shipping Dates for Contiguous U.S. (Lower 48 States)

Recommended send-by dates for expected delivery before December 251

Keep in mind, we will be operating 12pm-4pm beginning this Friday. We understand that the cut-off for Express mail is Dec 23rd, but please keep in mind that there are only 2 employees & we are open for business to walk in customers as well. Every attempt will be made to accommodate all customers but we are human and can only accomplish so much during the holidays.

Thank you,

Michelle & Hope

New Beginnings!!!!

Thursday, September 30, 2021, will be our last day of operation inside the 1st Cavalry Division Museum.
I had hoped to begin working on mail orders yesterday that had come across the website since Sept 16th, when we halted filling orders because we were away at Reunion. However I was unable to fill any orders on Wednesday. And with today being our last day of operation in the Museum, we will begin processing orders next week from our new location.
The gift shop will be moving to the 1st Cavalry Division Association HQ located in Copperas Cove.
During the time of our move, we will process orders at least once per week.
We will open for business to the general public on November 1st.
Please add our new address and phone number to your address book:
Crossed Sabers Gift Shop
302 N. Main St
Copperas Cove, Texas 76522
254-547-7019
We are going to try to move our current phone number but not sure yet if we will be able to.
Thank you for the many, many years of allowing us to serve you and your families and we look forward to seeing you at our new location beginning November 1st.

Covid-19

In reference to online orders: Normally I fill orders Monday – Thursday @ the Association HQ but last week, I took Friday off as well as this past Monday. So Any orders from Wednesday afternoon to Tues have not been processed.
And then, my assistant’s husband tested positive for Covid-19 on Thursday so she had to get tested. And on Friday, her test came back positive. So, now she is off for 2 weeks & I have to fill in at the actual gift shop. But, then I had to be tested Friday because of her positive test.  Luckily, I tested negative. YAY!!!!
Her Dr has released her to return to work as of today so now I can fill orders. And orders are actually being filled right now.
Sorry for the long story but I wanted you to understand why it’s taking me as long as it is.

Order Fulfillments

I (Michelle) am fulfilling orders Monday-Thursday at the Association HQ. If your order comes in after 2 pm CST on Thursday, it will not get filled until the following week.

On rare occasions, I may not be able to fill orders on Thursday or Monday if myself or my assistant takes off a day or two from work.

I hope this helps clear up any confusion if your order is not updated Thursday through Monday.
