With our daughter turning 8 last month, we went about ordering a set of
scriptures for her - a quad set - like we did for our son two years ago.
We were wanting the middle of the road version...not the top of line but
not the "seminary" set either (we wanted the ones that are about $38US for
the quad). Anyway, we were also wanting the burgundy cover. However, no
such luck. For that version, in the quad, they were out (and we're talking
Distribution, here). They were out of them in burgundy, teal and blue.
So, we got black with her name on it, of course, and then chose a scripture
carrier that was black with floral embroidery on it.
