The hourglass badge is used to mark products that are one-time buy "pilot" products, and also End-Of-Life products that will not be available for sale any longer once quantities run out. If you see this badge on a product page, know that the product will only available while supplies last, and don’t delay if you want to order one. Like many companies we use our sales data to determine which products stay and which, sadly, have to go.
At Parallax we scour the world for products we think that you, our customers, will like. Sometimes we're correct, and the products we bring in end up being best sellers and a permanent part of our product offering. Unfortunately, not every product ends up being a hit and can get discontinued pretty quickly. If you’ve been a Parallax customer for a while, you may have noticed this ebb and flow of product from outside vendors. We refer to these as Pilot Products. Our initial order is a small quantity, while we try them out to see if they are a good fit for our product lineup.
