Are all of the items that you carry in the store included on the website?

Many items that we carry in the store are not included on the website.

We carry a very broad selection of table linens, both finished goods that are ready to take home and items that we produce by custom order, including our own line of table linens and those of many other manufacturers. These items, at least for now, are not included on our website.
