I had a gal email me and ask how many floss colors I have. I told her I have small sets of 3-4 colors (a couple dozen), boxed sets of 12 and 28, large sets of 46 and 80 colors and lots of singles.
So she asks how many colors(skeins) do you have if I buy one of each? I started counting......and counting......
And counting.......got tired of counting and told her I had roughly 438 singles from all the collections and sets. How many yards is that? 8,760 and I think it would keep you busy for quite a while.
She asks if I have any other colors..........ok I do have a few drawers of singles that I had from my early years. I put them into 50 skein sets and put them on sale. That's another 1,000 yards. She waited a few minutes and sent another email. How much of a discount can you give me if I buy one of each? These are regular price of $2 and I run a 15% off sale on ebay. So I told her $1.50 per skein (25% off), you pay the postage, and I will GIVE you one of the 50 skein sets (or you can have a yard of 32ct linen or some hand dyed aida). Total before postage is $657. Saves you $100 on the 50 skein set. She said I'll take it and you should offer this to other stitchers. Well I know a lot of stitchers who buy a lot of floss......and this is a lot of floss!
So......if anyone else is interested in this special just let me know. I can calculate postage for you. Believe me...you won't run out of floss for a very long time!!! And just to show how much of a discount this is...I am about 1/4 the price of other companies who sell 5 yards for $2-2.50. This amount would be over $4,000.00. Such a deal! lol
Thanks for stopping by.
