Grand Re-Opening, and Oh Yeah - a Sale!

GRAND RE-OPENING, and oh, yeah — March Madness.

Our grand re-opening celebration is Saturday! Yes - March 17th - Saint Patrick's Day.
Most of you have heard of St. Patrick, and know that he had something to do with Ireland and snakes and lots of beer gets drunk. The beer is dyed green, and after drinking enough of it, the drinker turns green too.
It turns out - St. Patrick had really bad hand-writing - so when he told his followers to go out and buy beer - what he ACTUALLY wrote was - "go forth and buy beads. From the nice folks at beadFX."

Ok - I'm making that all up - but we are going to celebrate on Saturday - we'll have cookies and cake and demos and you can come down and see the new place (and if you already have, well - come on down anyway.) And we've planned a nice little surprise.

Our Annual March Madness sale!
Yes, it's our annual 20%-off sale, our thank-you-to-you, our wonderful customers and friends. This is our way of saying thank-you-for-being-so-great and supporting us.

20% off on almost everything in the store. And, because we are crazier than a cheeseburger cupcake (here, if you don't believe me), 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 sketching in the margins - which we know none of you ever did! Ha!)

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 discounts on special order merchandise, or special bulk orders.

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

  • No discount on gift certificates.
Things tend to get a little crazy around here during March Madness, 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 will be accepted at the sale prices.

  • No backorders. This sale is only 4 days, and when the item is gone, it's gone. 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 always painful to see them, clutching a teddy bear and hiding in the bathroom, 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 is continuing to the end of this coming Sunday, March 18 and will end at 11:59 Sunday night (Toronto time). (Well - in-store it ends at closing time on Sunday - because we can't make the staff stay until midnight.)

We do anticipate that shipping will most likely be delayed by a day or two from our usual timeframe.
And - if you are coming to the Bead Oasis show this weekend, do budget some time to come see us. We have free parking! And Cake.
