On June 10th until the 12th, Avian Avenue held their bi-annual Sidewalk Sale (SWS).
As on previous occasions, I did participate although I didn't really go overboard.
Given the actual strike/lock-out situation with Canada Post, I am forced to wait for most of my packages since there is no mail delivery (my Things for Wings package had been mailed out and set to be arriving on Monday, but is now somewhere in transition, waiting for deliveries to start over). Luckily, I did place an order with Crystal Bird Toys and since she's in the Ottawa region, I was able to get my order by hand delivery! What service!
Crystal had one of the most generous sales during that week-end - a combination of 30% off all items, buy three get one free, a free snack bag with each order (a snack bag contains foot toys) as well as a pretty good shipping deal for anyone to whom their orders were shipped.
So what did I get?
I got the Biscotti toy...
..and the Fred's Forager toy.
A close up of the Fred's Forager toy, so you can see the pine nuts included in the yucca pieces.
Apparently I did my math wrong, only getting four or each when I had 5 Pois to go around. But when I saw them in person, it also hit me that given the quantity of nuts on each toy, I'll probably keep these for out-of-cage toys, which means everyone will share, given that I'm sure Zuri, and possibly some of the others, would go through all the nuts in one day if I did leave the toys in their cages.
Finally, here is the content of my free snack bag.
