Last year was a bit of a wake up call for me. For years I've been promoting shopping secondhand on my blog trying to keep items out of landfills. Last … [Read More...]
Well I’m happy to say that most orders have now been shipped leaving us only a handful of orders to still get out. I am finding that since we offered the PDQ in kits that has slowed down our ability to fulfill the orders quickly as kits must be collated and packaged prior to shipping. Next time I will be getting the kits pre-made…hours and hours of collating is not a good use of time, oh, and can someone say BORING!!!!
PDQ has moved so quickly that we are concerned that some of the stock will be gone very soon. Now I am faced with the dilema of producing new designs or reprinting the same since most of the editorials and advertising for the line and designs we have now won’t be out until the Fall. This is a good problem to have though.
We are having such a beautiful spring and it is the first time I am in my own house, with a garden and backyard and all and I’m feeling very torn between trying to enjoy some of it and getting all this work done. I want to plant a vegetable garden and that takes time and energy, both of which I seem to be running low on lately.
Next week I leave for a week in Novi, just outside of Michigan for the Great Lakes Mega Meet. Bisous will be exhibiting with some other manufacturers under the name "Scrap Basics". I’m a little anxious about it since this will be my first US consumer show and also the first time I drive by myself down to Detroit. I’m hoping it will be a great show and make it all worthwhile.
Well, back to collating….
Well just a super quick note to say…yahoo! we finally got the PDQ!!!! We have begun to pack and ship orders. I’m hoping we will have all in the mail by the end of the week for those who ordered at CHA and those who ordered later they should ship next week.
Also for all you retailer’s holding out (thank you for your patience!) let me just say, we did a show in Ottawa this past weekend and literally SOLD OUT of 2 of our PDQ lines in 4 hours!!!!! They’re gonna go like hotcakes when you get them, so hang on for a couple of days more and you’ll reap the benifits I guarantee it. Not one negative comment at the show, only raves, delight and surprise that someone had finally created something that saves times and still looks fab.
