Do they usually sell all of the kits? My LHBS moves a great deal of product. They are one of two stores that are easy (within 30 miles) for me to reach. If I see a kit I want and it's hitting that 8 to 12 month old stage, I ask them if they'd be willing to part with it at a 10 or 20 dollar discount. Sometimes they offer much more, it's worth a try!
I got four Orchard Breezin' kits for $26.50 per kit. Now some of them were 15 months old, but they still turned out fine (might have been finer if newer, but how would me or my wife know not having ever made them before?)((there is a way to say that clearer, my PA Dutch influence is showing through, and I'm only 25% Cherman)).
