Thanks for popping in! Speaking of ‘Popping in’ – Good Gray Friday Gracious! You‘ve certainly popped in to the Sale of the year today! And yestterday! We thought we’d ease the doors open yesterday, so that we could monitor the website and spread the load a little. But all that’s happened is that hundreds of you have popped in twice – and thrice!! YIKES!!
So we’re pedal to the metal here. I’m on Ink Pad Duty, filling yesterday’s inky orders.
My personal challenge is that we’ve run out of ONE ink pad. Now that‘s pretty minor in the bigger picture, right? Until you realise that pretty much EVERYBODY has ordered it! So I’ve been calling all you lovely Mustard Seed orderers, to see if I can tempt you with another yellow! One lovely lady was so funny when I rang. “That’s too strange that you would call me right now!” she exclaimed. Apparently, she was watching a Youtube video of mine when the phone rang! You’ve got to admit – that must be pretty weird!
Well, the Gray Friday Sale has certainly gone bananas, exceeded expectations and is keeping us hopping about! But we’ve got a great team, a stash of doughnuts for a suger boost, and actually – we’re having a blast.
I can’t say too much in case I jinx it, but we’ve got a BIG plan in the pipeline, and this GRAY SALE WEEKEND is our own kind of fundraiser really! Every year, we use the funds raised this weekend to invest in something special. Remember when we bought Pergamano? The Gray Friday Sale that year was the down payment on that not so little acquisition. Then last year we used the money raised to invest in a brilliant new Stamp production System from the States. That’s going well now. And this year? Well, more will be revealed, but it will be a big Clarity game changer again!
Anyway, time to get back to picking those ink pads, and see whether there’s a doughnut going begging!
Hundreds of orders have already been dispatched, and we’re in at the weekend, to keep the momentum going. Thank you so much for pitching in and taking advantage of the great prices. You can come back more than once too, you know! Hahaha. Like you haven’t figured that out !!
Or, if you prefer to call in your order : Tel 01732 868215 . Phones are manned 8am-4pm
Mustdash, said the Mexican! Oh. And if something is brand new, and has just been on TV, we cannot in good conscience include it in the sale! I call this the Marks & Sparks effect. Who’s bought a coat or a dress at full retail price at Marks, then gone back a week later, only to find it’s on the half-price rack. I hate that.
Love & Hugs,
