Thanks for popping in. What can WIGIG stand for, they wonder…well, please allow me to elaborate.
A couple of weeks ago, we – the Clarity Crew – were having one of our weekly Zoom meetings, and Tom mentioned that we have got quite a few overruns of stamps and stencils etc. Then Leanne added that there are other very useful things where we have just a handful, but we ought to consider discontinuing them, to free up space and declutter. We all agreed that there is so much on our virtual shelves online, that shoppers at Clarity miss half of what we have.
We are very prolific with our designing. Pretty much every single TV show we do we design new products for it. But we hardly ever discontinue anything. So you can imagine the vast number of SKU’s we now carry, after 16 years of TV! SKU’s?? What’s with the acronyms, Gray?? (STOCK KEEPING UNITS – barcoded items).
So it was agreed that we need a Clarity Shop spring-clean, a sort out and a clear out. I did the same thing at my parents’ house on Friday. They have a back kitchen, a pantry cum utility room. Everything which is cluttering up the kitchen ends up in there. I’ve got one of these rooms too! Trouble is, over a period of years it becomes unmanageable. You can’t see what you’ve got anymore because there’s so much crammed in there. Same at Clarity.
Somebody suggested a BOGOF Sale (Buy One Get One Free). Thing is, BOGOF sales just encourage more STUFF – but at YOUR end! In order to get half price, you end up with twice as much!
I piped up with “How about a Half Price WIGIG sale?”
“What’s a WIGIG Sale?” asked Grace
WHEN IT’S GONE, IT’S GONE!
Ahh, they all chuckled. never heard of that one. Me neither! I had just made it up! That said, I can’t imagine I am the first to have thought that one up! Just rolls off the tongue that one!
Anyway, it makes sense to me. A WIGIG SALE for one week. A WIGIG-WEEK in fact! Half price plus your club discounts on specific items which we either have too many of or we want to discontinue, to clear a space and declutter.
That will mean up to 65% discount for our Diamond Club members. In fact, if you were thinking about joining one or more of our monthly Clarity Craft CLubs, now would be a great time!
65% off beautiful things. Sounds like a BARGAIN !!! Got to be worth a little looksie, a rummage! There may well be some things which are on your wish list, and there may be some loveliness you didn’t even know we had.
The Clarity WIGIG WEEK starts tomorrow at 9am! Please remember that this is not like our usual sale, where we jusy keep making to fill the orders. This time, When it’s gone, it’s gone!
I remember years ago, being on a coach with a bunch of US Military JAG Corp Officers. (Judge Advocate General”s Corp – Lawyers). We were going somewhere for a jolly. I was listening to the legal banter between them. There were so many acronyms, it was impossible to understand them. “Well, if the APD had signed the GPSFL, then the WPOLA would never have agreed to the RKFGDP.”
After about an hour of this, I turned to my then husband, “I hope we haven’t forgotten the BSWM!”
Any ideas what I meant? Just for fun, put your suggestions below. A £20 Clarity Gift Voucher is on the table here! If you guess right, you go in the hat for the prize! GTBWAT !!!
Take care! Enjoy your Sunday, WYMBD (whatever you may be doing!)
Love and Hugs
