Padyaks balikbayan box service area.

Update (9/22/2019): Again this fall, we will be taking an undetermined amount of time off from our scheduled trips to southern Ohio. We need to spend time on our health issues, preparing our Illinois house for market, along with a laundry list of things we need to take some time out for.

If you’re in the Dayton area and have a balikbayan box ready to ship, let us know — we plan to stop in Dayton from time to time. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you need information regarding shipments currently en route, feel free to contact LIPS directly. Their information can be found at

To our many friends in Ohio, thank you for your understanding.
