First… a small apology for about 3 months in missing posts! I finished up my Master’s Degree in May, and I guess I just needed a break. The month before graduation, I was doing so much writing I thought my head would explode and I figured that it was better to keep my brains intact and return to blogging when it felt right. Thanks for not unfollowing me in the mean time.
Now for the excitement. It is time for McCloud Designs Biggest Sale of the Year! July 12-22, loads of Etsy sellers (including me!) will be reducing prices. This is the first time that I am participating in the Christmas in July Sale and Boy, am I excited. So excited that everyone will have access to 15% off all items in my shop and my Facebook fans will have access to close to 25% off! That is right… I said 25% off*. If you are not a McCloud Designs Facebook Fan, head over there now so that you don’t miss out on the extra discount.
*Here is how it will work. All items in my shop will be marked down the 15% tomorrow (7/11/12), late, late at night which may involve some sort of energy drink on my part. Anyone can take advantage of those discounts. As a special ‘thank you’ to my Facebook fans throughout the sale, I will post a coupon code for an extra 10% off which will bring your savings very close to 25% off.
What does this mean in terms of handmade jewelry for you or your loved ones. Here is an example.
This lovely handmade Lapis Lazuli Necklace normally sells for $98.00. With the normal 15% off it is down to $83.30. With the extra coupon code for Facebook fans this necklace would be only $74.97 (plus very reasonable shipping).
This means that just by being a Facebook fan you can save $23.03 on this stunning necklace. All you have to do is click a little button that says “like” at McCloud Designs Facebook page and then watch for my posts and that $23.03 is yours to keep.
Let’s try another one…
These spunky Green Glass Earrings are normally $10 (already a super inexpensive handmade gift, right?) With the 15% off it brings them down to $8.50, plus with the coupon code from Facebook, you’ll receive another 10% off for a total of $7.65 (plus shipping).
If you’ve purchased those two items, you’ve saved $25.38. If you like saving money, leave a comment on this post with ideas of what you can do with an extra $25.38.
Still need more encouragement…
These stunning Polymer Clay and Sterling Silver Leaf Earrings regularly sell for $25.00. With 15% off it brings them down to $21.25. Then enter the 10% off coupon code that you get just for being a Facebook fan and they will cost you only $19.13 (plus shipping).
Now you’ve bought three gifts or three additions to your own jewelry collection and have saved $31.25.
Here are some of my suggestions for what to do with that $31.25.
*Purchase more great McCloud Designs.
*Purchase sale items from other great Etsy shops doing Christmas in July sales (visit Etsy and search for CIJ or Christmasinjuly to find other participating shops)
*Put it in the bank.
*Save it for a fun trip.
*Donate it to your favorite charity.
*Get a pet turtle (or several pet turles, perhaps).
What would you do with an extra $31.25?
