Is there any truth behind the rumors of a major shortage of dark ivory? If so, it doesn't make any sense. Its like a gas station running out of regular.

Mike, do you have any input on this?

thanks

We've had some trouble getting it from our supplier. Kind of hit or miss, they now call us when it comes in (not often enough I should add.)

It is true... I tried to get some from Mike last week for a class this weekend. They wouldn't give me any.

Dear Duane, before we ran out of Dark Ivory, we had over 3,000 pounds, But big sales took our inventory from tons to a few pounds. I do have some DarkIvory coming in February and then more coming about a month later.

Sometimes you just run out of color, but when we restock, we do it by the ton, not by the pound, we want to be your Effetre, Messy and Vetrofond supplier, plus so much more, and at great prices.

Thanks Mike! I've been on a Hades and Opal yellow kick lately so my dk Ivory has been ok. Inquiring have wanted to know though.

It is odd what sparks the high demand for a color. With the cost of glass as low as it is, it is common for bead artists to call and order 10 lbs of Dark Ivory per order. With that in mind, when demand runs, hundreds of lbs can go quick (days). Our next Efftetre shipment is on the way, but it will be a few weeks on the water before we see it.

We have a shipment from Effetre with 660 pounds of Dark Ivory 591276 arriving the first week of February, and then a week to pass though customers and be delivered to us.

Do expect a sale on Dark Ivory when our shipment arrives. And another shipment is soon to leave Effetre with 2,000 more pounds of Dark Ivory amongst the 25,000 pound glass shipoment.

New colors on both shipments!

Bumping this old post back up because I was talking to Mike Frantz today about Vetrofond light and dark Ivory glass.I was under the impression that the dark has been impossible to find and I have a bunch of it.He inquired from someone there and they told him it was not the dark Vetro that people wanted that it was the light instead.I don't have any light nor think I ever tried it..so ppl..which one were people looking for? Thanks..

The Vetro light ivory was coveted but there were some awesome batches of Vetro dark ivory too

Sadly, nothing is available in Vetrofond. Unless you can buy from someone who bought when it was still in production and has stashed it away, or from the stock remaining at the vendors who carried it. There are not going to be any more new batches of Vetrofond glass for lampworkers, from what I understand, and have not been for some time.

Thanks Melanie..I knew Vetrofond was not going to be in production and I did stash a lot of the dark ivory.I am considering selling some but not decided yet.I am not sure if there is enough interest as I heard people favored the light ivory and I don't have that. :)
