I remembered getting their stuff pretty quick back in 05. Maybe mine will be here soon.

I ordered two boxes of 1860 on the 28th (of april) from Masks N More. They charged my card so I am expecting them some time or another-I'll post if/when they come in.

I placed an order with Masks N' More on Tuesday. I received an order confirmation email, but they have not yet charged my card.

I'm still waiting for the masks. Masks N More sent an email saying they were backed up and I could cancel the order if I wanted to.

I'll wait....

My first order was for a few boxes of earloop masks and I got that. Second order for 2 boxes of N95s is still open. I'll wait too.

Interesting but not unexpected, Masks n More just sent me an email canceling my order. The charge is gone from my credit card. It seems like it will be very, very difficult to get masks.

I'm a little uneasy now. I wonder if there will be enough if or when something happens. My husband is a custodian at a school and when he inquired about protection they more or less laughed at him.

I'll order again in a week or so and see how that goes.

Try your local hardware store.
The True Value up here had N-95-P, 10 for 25, with exhaust purge.

I found a bunch at a Kelly Moore paint store.

We had to do fit testing for the entire department, and I didn't want to use the "good" stock.

I was in Safeway an hour ago and happened to walk by the pharmacy area and there were cases of N95 masks stacked up and on sale for 9.99/box of 10 masks. I have never seen such a thing in a Safeway store.

I also saw N95 up front and center in Walgreens yesterday as soon as you walk in the store, have never seen that before either. Those were expensive though, like $4 for 2 masks.

I have to admit I bought a box at Safeway. just because they were there in front of me.
