Topic: What happened to Iconic Alternatives?

Hey gang....  haven’t seen anything new from Iconic Alternatives since November ‘19. It was my favorite site for budget bond alternatives. Anybody have any insight on its’ status?

My apologies if this isn’t the correct forum. I will repost to the correct one if need be.

We've been discussing this in the Budget Bond Collector's Resource thread.

John, who used to post here as canoe2, had last announced he was moving to New York City before the pandemic, and that was the last we heard from him or Iconic Alternatives. No one on AJB seems to have known him personally.

Posted some pics of his new place, seemed to be getting settled, but then nothing, it was all just about the time that the pandemic began.

I have John's personal email, I'll fire off a message to see  if he's ok, of course the address I have may be outdated .

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Ah yes...   I saw the conversation in the Budget Bond thread. Should’ve posted there or just researched a bit more. Hope John is doing well. Looks like he has a lot of fans here.

Looks like the site went down for me some time in December. Is it working for anyone else?

I just checked and the site is still down!

I know where you keep your gun!

Re: What happened to Iconic Alternatives?

I'm really missing the site! Not just John's efforts in finding the items but also the various articles and tips on putting them together, caring for them and his products reviews.

It was a little treasure trove of great info on JB style along with Mr. Spasier's Bondsuits.

John you are sorely missed and I hope everything is OK.

The website is available again with a 2021 copyright.
In addition, the search function and the menu generally seem to have been overhauled.
It's been a while since I was last on the website, but I don't remember the filter function.

Well that's a good sign. Hopefully we hear from John again soon!
