New this Week!

Friends Help You Move

  Real friends help you move bodies. 

Well - we're moving, but we're not asking you to help us move any bodies. Yet.

BUT, we are going to ask you help us move our beads.

Back in the day, when we all still had good knees and strong backs, the standard fee for helping with a move was free pizza and a case of beer.

We thought about asking you to come on down and pick up a box and bring it over to the new location, but ... we thought there might be some technical issues with that. I'll leave it you to figure out what that might be. (Hey, you - put down the Swarovskis and no one gets hurt.)

So, instead we are having a

"We'd Rather Sell It Than Move It" sale!!!!!!

Help us move by buying beads and taking them home, so we don't have to pack them and put them on the truck, take them to the new location, unpack them and hang them on the wall, clean up the packing and recycle the boxes. See how much work you can save us?

Instead of free pizza and beer - we're giving YOU 20% off on almost everything in the store. Not quite the same as pizza and beer - but pretty darn good nevertheless.

Like our March Madness sale - we have a few roolz to make it all go smoothly and to ensure that our staff still has hair left after the sale.

In short, No back orders, no special orders, no frequent beader points, no points redemption - we're trying to make this as streamlined as possible! Just, raw, unadulterated savings! BUT, if you already get a discount - (Business or Bead Society) you can DOUBLE DIP. 

So here's the scoop.

20% off on almost everything in the store.
  • If you have a business discount, or a Bead Society member discount, you get to double dip! (That's 20% off, and then your regular discount percent off that total afterwards - so not quite the total of the two discounts added together, in case you spent math class weaving friendship bracelets to sell at lunch!)
The few measly exceptions are:
  • No discounts on class fees (But if you take a class during the sale, you get the sale discount and the student discount. Did you know students get a discount?)

  • No discounts on Studio time/lampwork cards, lampwork tools, glass and lampwork supplies. (But, did you know, if you have a studio card for torch rental, you get a discount in store, same as if you are taking a class!)

  • No special orders, special order merchandise, or special bulk orders and no discounts thereon.

  • The discount cannot be combined with Art Clay large volume or instructor discounts.

  • No discount on gift certificates.
We anticipate crazy-busy-ness - as you come in to say goodbye to the old location and scoop up some beads, so we have a few rules to make it go more smoothly.

  • No frequent beader points awarded on sale or discounted merchandise

  • No frequent beader points will be redeemed during the sale

  • The discount is NOT retroactive and does not apply to previously purchased merchandise.

  • No special orders or bulk orders.

  • No backorders. The point is to have "less to move." The early bird gets the beads. Online orders will be picked in the order in which we receive them.

  • The discount does not apply to merchandise that was previously 'held' in your shopping cart. The shopping cart will not retroactively take off the discount. (It's not that smart!). You will be able to see in the shopping cart if the discount has been applied or not.

  • If you are placing a phone or fax order, please ensure that you have the sku/product numbers ready, as well as the description. Same goes for email orders - as we'd prefer to not have our order-picking staff have too many nervous breakdowns. It's sad to see them, wandering the parking lot, clutching a chocolate bar and crying.

    We will be VERY busy during the sale. Having this information ready when processing your order, will help us get your order out the door in a reasonable time frame.
The sale ends this coming Sunday, December 18, Toronto time. 
 
We do anticipate that shipping will most likely be delayed by a day or two from our usual timeframe.
Ok - I think that's it! Let the savings begin!!!
