All my xmas & general photographic greetings cards are now available to anyone -please see last post

Standard

My Flash Sale has now ended, and I will be posting out the orders today – thank you to everyone who participated.

FireHaving got all the boxes down and set up an area where I can put orders together, I thought I might as well keep these on sale – HOWEVER – AS WELL AS ORDERING THE SETS AS SHOWN, YOU CAN ALSO CHOOSE WHICH CARDS YOU WANT FROM EITHER GRID, AND THE QUANTITY YOU WANT.  (Grids are on the previous post)

All cards will be 30p each, when bought direct from me only.  Please email me at julz@julzweaving.plus.com with your order – I haven’t named the cards here (you can see some of the names in the tag list below)  but its probably easier to just give me the positions in each grid – No 1 Grid is the Christmas Card set – No 2 Grid is the General Card Set.  ie: No 1 grid, line 1, card no 3/  No 2 grid line 3, card no 1 – if that makes sense to you!

I will email you back with the total cost, including postage to your country, and if you accept this, I will put together a paypal invoice for you.  Cards will be sent out as soon as possible after you have paid.  (Should anything go wrong your payment will have all the protection of the paypal system.)

Just for info, I have put together the set of 2 fireside greetings cards and the original 8″ x 6″ postcard on etsy – you can see it here

Please feel free to share this post, as this offer is now open to anyone who sees it, now that club members have had first dibs – smile!

(I will let you know when you order if any of the cards become out of stock, or unreachable – smile – reference to my excavations – see last 2 posts)

I loo forward to hearing from you

FLASH SALES & CHRISTMAS CARDS ……..

Standard

redteapotAll of a sudden we’re being bombarded with pre Christmas adverts, emails, junk mail etc etc…….and oddly enough, I’m planning to do something too ……..

Well, its like this, I was idly listening to Evan Davis (the new Newsnight presenter – what do you think of him?)  on the Bottom Line (Radio 4) the other week, and he and his panel of business people were talking about Flash Sales.  I couldn’t tell you much about what they actually said, but it sparked a train of thought – and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.

I used to be a photographer – I say used to be, because the old ways have been so superseded by digital cameras and mobile phones, that I can no longer earn a living in photography – without doing weddings, which I always refused!

TRECASTLEAt one point I also earned some extra by selling my own photographic greetings cards, which I got printed up to very high standards, and on very good card, with really nice envelopes.  Sadly, the ‘art’ greetings card market also took  a dive, as people don’t bother to send nice little notes on nice cards to each other any more either!

I’m not moaning – just setting the scene.  I now am back selling stuff on ebay, and if it weren’t for digital and broadband, I’d never have the opportunity.

Anyway, I did sell quite a lot of cards, and even had some in galleries and museums, but that was about 15 years ago!

When demand starting drying up, I went to see a local business advisor – he was a lovely man – his business was selling bull semen – smile – and he gave me some very good advice.  He said, sell them all off to a wholesaler for 1p a card! – ie take a big loss and forget about them. I was selling them for around  £2.50 at the time.

lambActually he was right – but I just couldn’t do it – so over the years the boxes of cards have had small incursions into them, but there are still loads left – all stacked up in the store room (my 2nd bedroom) and its got so bad in there that I have just spent ages trying to move stuff to get to them!   There are some I just ain’t gonna reach at the moment – I’m looking for the ones I used to sell and send as Xmas cards.  So altho the whole set may not be available – I thought I’d go ahead with the idea of a Flash Sale on the ones I can find – as soon as I’ve sorted everything out and worked how how many of each I have.  The ones I know I have at present are shown in this meandering blog!

Why am I writing this now – when I haven’t got any firm news to tell you?  Because I felt like a rest from excavating the store room, and because I plan to have things ready within the next week.  At that point I will be sending a NEWS FROM JULZ email to all my customers, giving them an exclusive offer, and I will be selling the cards for less than they cost me to produce – but NOT 1p!  So I thought I’d give you a heads up.

Anyone who has not bought from me, or thinks they have dropped off my mailing list, is welcome to email me at julz@julzweaving.plus.com – mentioning this blog, and I’ll add you to the list.

In the meantime I’ve been having fun putting some of my other photos/cards/prints up on my old ebay account – which you can view by clicking on the orange lettering.

I’ve also been adding to my listings on my new ebay account (mainly spinning & weaving stuff) – and to my etsy shop (a more eclectic mix) – click on orange lettering to have a look.

That’s all for now ……will let you know more when I know it!
