Just saw that Tropical Exotic Hardwoods will be having a store-wide parking lot sale August 19-21.

Has anyone shopped with them before? Looks like they have some great woods but way out in California. Do they ship?

In case anyone is wondering, here are the details for the sale taken from one of their magazine ads-

Mitch has some very high quality woods. It might very well be worth the visit.

I live 30 minutes from Tropical Exotic Hardwoods. Never been to the parking lot sale but have spent a lot of time there drooling. I’m going to the sale. Perhaps I’ll see you there. By the way they do ship. I think it’s how they sell most of the wood

Mitch is a great guy from dealings I’ve had with him. Great looking cocobolo, too. He’ll take care of you.

Wish I had the money to take the trip and buy some wood, but I just bought a jointer so I’m tapped now. Would have like to check it out though.
