    Default Supply house sales - when do they happen?

    Back story - I am making my own Top bar hives but I would like to use Deep frames (no foundation) just to make things easy.
    I am in the process of looking for a house to buy and can not keep them at my duplex due to crappy neighbor kids
    I bought someones TBH that they made but never used. I had to redo all of it but it is still the smaller 15" long bars. It is at a friends house being used as a Bait Hive that I put out 1 week ago.

    So, in the mean time I guess I missed the Spring sales and wondered when the next group would be coming.

    I was going to buy the cheap deep frames, but the shipping was $$$ and the only free shipping over $100 was on the more expensive frames. I was looking to buy 100-150 frames to put together.
    So I am not even sure if the next sale would make any difference since I am only looking for frames.

    I don't have a table saw so making them myself is out of the question.
    Thanks

    Chad, where were these? All the ones that I could get free shipping were about $1.60 each (free shipping) $0.60 each (cheap w/ no shipping)

    Mann Lake is good but incredibly slowwwwwwwwwwwww about shipping. Takes them a week minimum to ship. Them sales make it back up and you wait.
    Internet credibility is an oxymoron

    Slow? Never taken more than 4 days for any of my orders. Often 2-3 days and I'm nowhere near any of their stores.
