$10 or Less! Make 'em disappear!

It's not quite time to put away those Christmas decorations (thank goodness). I love Christmas-time, don't you? Everyone seems a little nicer. Everyone seems to care a little bit more about the big things. Everyone seems to think a little less of themselves. That's what I like about the season.

We were absolutely blessed to be a part of so many families' traditions this year. We loved seeing the pictures on facebook of your ornaments on your trees and your friends and family opening and wearing adorable aprons! Thank you for sharing your moments with us.

As you know, we are a very honest company. So, we are going to let you in on a little secret. We still have several sets of ornaments that we do NOT want to pack away and store for the Christmas rush next year. We want YOU to pack them away with your Christmas decorations for next year. And, we are willing to part with them at just a hair over cost plus our charity donations!

Classic Ornament Set - $12.75 <-- Sorry! Can't go lower!

We also have a couple of stragglers. You know, single digit inventory items! When we get below 10 of any product, we just can't wait to see that number get to zero sot that we can create something new. That said, these are selling for lower than our costs to make them. But, don't worry! We have already paid Deng Jia in full so this does not impact her income or any other artisans in the least. It is just a little reward to our faithful customers for returning after Christmas!

Again, thank you for such a successful Scarlet Threads year! We loved filling the almost countless orders that we received over the past several months. We are on track to close out a successful 2014!

Cyber Monday! Target: Sell Out!

We've had a great week of sales. We really have! But, I think this coming week is going to be even better. Cyber Monday has always been boon for our little business and a great boon for our customers, too. At the end of the year, like other businesses do, we look at our inventory and we look at our prices and we think about the reason we are in business.

We are in business for a specific reason: to empower artisans through employment. That employment comes by introducing their products to new markets. We have steadily sought to extend the Scarlet Threads community, to connect you to Lao Yen, Deng Jia, and our Chin Women Next Door. We have brought in new cooking blog partners who believe in our products and our mission behind them. We have partnered with new stores, most notably The Cupboard in Fort Collins, CO.

So, the only way that we get to make new products with Lao Yen and Deng Jia and Dawt and Du is to sell EVERYTHING in our shop. That is the mission. How do we accomplish it? We make prices irresistible. It's as simple as that.

Cyber Monday is YOUR day. It's like customer appreciation day! How can you help?

  1. If you are in the market for one of our Aprons, Bags, Dresses, or Ornaments - place an order! The prices can't (and won't) get any better than this.
  2. Share our posts on Social Media - Tweet, Share on FB, Instagram, Pinterest - it all helps!
Now, down to business... the IRRESISTIBLE prices!
