important freebie announcement

To celebrate the-leaving-of-the-day-job I have a grand freebie planned!
I've also combined it with us going on our holiday so it's a 10 day long freebie extravaganza!

Every single order I receive will have an extra special freebie added to their parcel...as a celebration & as compensation for the delay in the posting of the order!

Here's the deal ::
I'm doing my last Post Office run tomorrow...so any orders received before 4pm today (Monday 30th August) will be posted tomorrow (with a freebie added)
I will leave all my shops open as normal BUT orders will not be posted until Wednesday 8th September ...orders will be processed on a first come first served basis when I return from my holiday and I promise I will do them as fast as I possibly can!

Freebie details ::
every order over £10 will receive :: 3 random spools of Christmas ribbon PLUS 2 bonus loyalty card stickers
every order over £30 will receive :: 10 (yes ten!) random spools of Christmas Ribbon PLUS 3 bonus loyalty card stickers

PLUS :: I will also pick a winner from the comments (so you don't need to shop to join in the fun!) Just leave a comment on this post and one winner will receive a package with 24 spools of ribbon :-)

Small Print
each spool of ribbon contains 1 yard of ribbon
we going to Devon (to visit my parents & nan) and then to Dorset for a relaxing, lazy holiday.
You may order as many times as you wish ... as long as each order reaches £10 (before postage) you will get a freeebie!
I must be able to contact you via your comment....one comment each please!

Well done for taking the plunge and giving up the day job! After a bit of a miserable day in a job that pays the bills ( only banking not slave labour!) I am very jealous. Have a lovely holiday and best wishes for your wonderful new life.

Ps - I was delighted with the quality of the cupcake kit and the giant button which I recently ordered.

Lene said...

I have a lot of ribbon (according to my husband). According to myself I don't have nearly enough. 24 spools could go towards fixing that problem : )

However, I think I might also have to order something from you to get those 10 spools. It's a sacrifice I am willing to do!

If I should be the lucky one - nicemailforlene@gmail.com

And have a SUPER vacation!

Lucy said...
