cats & dogs advent calendar card

 

It’s one of our extremely popular advent calendar cards. If you’ve not seen these before, I cannot recommend them enough! They’re priced at just £2 each and as you can see in the picture, have 24 little doors on them to open. Perfect if you want to send a more unique or special card, and at £2, they represent fabulous value. I always sell loads of these, and with the new selection we’ve got this year, I can see it being the same again this season!

The advent calendar cards, all of the Christmas products, along with the entire every day range are just awaiting your browsing and buying pleasure in my shop now 😉

And as you’d imagine, now’s a busy and fun time to be a trader, so if it appeals to you to try this yourself, get in touch!

 

Getting to Choose a Few Cards…

Other than a new order or an update from one of my team, there’s nothing I like more popping into my business inbox than one of these emails…

600px_UK_october_survey

 

It’s from Head Office and it’s the October product release survey. There are 427 new designs for our consideration, and as my email says ‘Your feedback is an essential part of our business and your comments really do influence our decision making. Please vote according to your own preferences and don’t try and second guess what you think your customers will like – we want your opinion.’

I love working for a company that listens to us, though most of all, I love getting a look at what I may be selling from October and playing at being a Creative Director… 🙂

Baskets of Cards

I like to sell in various ways, as you’ll no doubt have noticed by now. One of my favourites is ‘baskets’. It’s pretty much as simple as it sounds. I pop a good selection of cards, along with a few giftwrap and tag sets, jotters and bits and bobs into a basket, complete with a couple of brochures, and leave it with someone. Whether it be a customer who wants a browse, a local dentists staff room or someone who wants to show friends and colleagues how gorgeous the cards are – anything works! I tend to leave them somewhere for a week and then pick them up, complete with sales or orders. Or sometimes nothing, but hey ho, you can’t win them all!

I like this part of my work as it can easily fit around whatever I’m doing with the children. For example, I’ve got a basket out at the moment in our local library’s staff room. So when I go to collect it next week, we’ll spend a bit of time there reading and choosing some books. It also means that my stock is out and about working for me, even when I’m not. There’s no point in it being in my house for the week if I’m busy with other things. People might as well be mooching through it!

So now you know what I’m on about when I mention my baskets. A very easy, very time efficient element of my business 🙂

A Lovely New Coffee Morning

Bags Full of Cards!

Bags Full of Cards!

Yesterday, I took my cards along to a local retirement home’s coffee morning. I’d not been before, and it was actually a friend and customer of mine who had given them my brochure and suggested they have me there – thank you, Ali! It was only 5 minutes from home, so I packed up my stock into a couple of bags, my in-laws arrived to play with the kids, and off I tootled.

My Display

My Display

 

I set up in a nice lounge, and people started to come in and take a look and meet for a chat over drinks and biscuits. It was an enjoyable couple of hours, with a steady stream of people browsing, chatting and buying. Several of them asked whether I’d be going again, which is always nice, so I’ve agreed to go back again in September, and will probably make it a regular bi-monthly booking from then on. All in all, a good morning’s work.

So then back to family-life, I got home in time for lunch, and we went off to a neighbour’s house for the afternoon. I enjoyed catching up with my friend, and my daughter had a great time playing in the garden with her little friend.

After dinner and the kids’ bedtimes, while catching up on this week’s Supernatural!, I unpacked a small cards delivery and popped it, along with all my other stock, into a couple of baskets ready to take out and find homes for today. Might as well get that stock out and about selling! I’ll report back on where the baskets end up..:-)

My Picks of the Week #15 Butterflies

Summer is actually here! Hope everyone’s making the most of it. I love spending time in my garden and that’s inspired this week’s picks – butterflies. Now, Phoenix know how to do butterflies….

blue butterflyBlue Butterfly AL69 £1.50 or £1.20 when you buy any 10 or more cards

Absolutely gorgeous! It’s all glittery, too. I always have one of these on my displays, and as you can imagine, they catch the eye and I sell plenty! As with all Phoenix cards, it’s blank inside so could be a birthday, get well, engagement – whatever you need it to be!

There’s is also a 50 sheet jotter pad, of the same design, shaped as a butterfly (not glittery, though, of course!)

Organiser Box £10 OB4 butterfly organiser box

It includes 15 blank dividers and a pull out drawer. Could be a recipe box, keep your paperwork in, or your stock of cards!

Butterfly Paper Chain SP15 £2.50

48 gummed links to make up a paper chain, with images on both sides.

Butterfly Sky Postcards M50 £4

Pack of 10, matt textured, postcards, along with white envelopes.

Butterfly CupcakesButterfly Cupcakes LS20 £1.50 or £1.20 when you buy any 10 or more cards

Month in, month out, this is the best-selling card! It’s glittery and the wings on each of the butterflies pop out – very pretty so can see why it just keeps on selling!

Painted Butterflies WS247 £1.50 or £1.20 when you buy any 10 or more cards

Another very popular one. A little smaller than Butterfly Cupcakes, this one’s matt textured, and again, has wings that pop-out.

Butterfly Frieze Blue SP32 £6butterfly frieze

With 10 pop-out A4 sheets, you can make quite a display with these – so pretty! There’s also a pink version.

We also have mini gift boxes, stationery sets, a bookmark, gift wrap and tags, gift boxes and loads more butterfly cards, too – phew! I did say Phoenix know how to do butterflies! You can search all things butterfly on my website by simply using the product search box, to see even more of the range.

And remember, I have special offers on this month, too..:-)
