What is Dead Stock?

Dead stock are products that are no longer available for sale. These products generally fall into three categories.

1. Discontinued Products

Items that we have removed from our product catalogue. Typically items are discontinued if they are no longer making a profit for the company. For example, we used to sell engraved rolling pins but they take too much time to complete and are not worth carrying anymore.

DSS cutting boards ready for engraving
2. One-offs

One-offs are items that we purchased as a test to see if they would be a good fit in our shop, but we have decided for one reason or another not to include them. For example, we may order a different size of cutting board than usual, or a different species of wood to test how the engraving will look.

3. Imperfect Goods

Imperfect Goods are items that fit into a category that we are currently selling, but may have slight imperfections that did not pass our high standards for regular sale. An example is a live edge board that does not sit level, or a cutting board that has a small hole on the face. Any imperfections are listed clearly in the item description.

How do I see what’s available this year?

Come and join us at The Studio, located at 4 Martin Street, Milton ON on Saturday November 5, 2022 from 10am-3pm. RTS Insiders get exclusive access on Friday November 4 from 4-9pm.  Do you want to be included?  Become an RTS Insider today.

How do I purchase a Halloween Dead Stock Sale item?

This year’s sale is LIVE, so you can choose your items and purchase them at the sale. Cash and credit accepted!
If personalization is possible, we’ll email you a design file to approve before we engrave. Orders must be paid in full before any design work is completed.

Does the price include personalized engraving?

If the item is customizable, then yes. The price you see includes engraving.

Some items are pre-engraved and therefore we cannot add to, or alter those designs. The description of each product will state if it can be personalized. This travel mug is an example of a pre-engraved product.

How will I know when my item is ready?

We will email you as soon as everything is ready. Please add to your contact list so it does not get directed as spam.

How do I get my items?
