The Dog Days of Summer

Ah, the dog days of summer. It's been long enough since the bleak winds of February that the heat and humidity, the bugs and the allergies - they are all starting to wear a bit thin. Plus this summer has been just weird - we haven't gone more than 4 days without rain since June, and if you don't like the weather, wait an hour, it will be different then.
What to do, what to do?
I know, why don't we just have a big ol' sale on everything and cheer everyone up?
So how about it? 20% off everything* in the store for just ONE WEEK. (*Some exclusions. Items already discounted will not be discounted further.)

The exceptions are:
  • No discounts on class fees  
  • No discount on gift certificates. 
  • No discounts on Studio time/lampwork cards, lampwork tools, glass and lampwork supplies.  
  • No discounts on special order merchandise, or special bulk orders.  
  • The discount cannot be combined with Art Clay large volume or instructor discounts
  • Exception: Some items ARE excluded. Some metal clay items, some tools, and previously discounted items, and a few other items. You will be able to see online if an item is discounted. Remember - you always get the best possible discount - so if something has been discounted more than the sale discount - you will get the greatest possible discount.
Things tend to get a little crazy around here during a sale, 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 special bulk orders will be accepted at the sale prices. 
  • No Rain Cheques. No backorders. When it's gone, it's gone. The early bird gets the beads. Online orders will be picked in the order in which we receive them.  
  • Sale ends Wednesday, August 13 (online - midnight, Toronto time) If you haven't checked out by then - the items in your shopping cart will revert to regular prices. (And we can't change that - sorry.)  
     
  • 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 always painful to find them hiding in the classroom, sucking on a twinkie and sobbing into their teddy bears.
     
  • 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.

We do anticipate that shipping will most likely be delayed by a day or two from our usual timeframe.
So click on a link and go crazy!


Happy Shopping!
