December Challenge Winner and A Goodbye

Without further ado our winner for the December challenge is Kate

December was our last challenge for the foreseeable future as the shop is closing down. The challenges may be back once I've sorted out the shop closure and had a bit of a break from it all.

I have a massive closing down sale in the shop. Everything has to go and is marked down to silly prices

Closing Down Sale Continues Everything Must Go

My closing down sale continues.  I've put a lot of items on auction at ridiculously low start prices and other items are either already heavily discounted or have the best offer button and a lot have both.  I need to get rid of everything asap so any offers (provided I can still pay ebay and paypal fees out of the offer price) will be accepted.  There are some crazy bargains to be had.

Closing Down Sale - Flower Bargain Packs

Continuing with my closing down sale I've made up some bags of approximately 30 flowers from a wide mixture of handmade, Prima and other brands.

They can be found here

eBay have a minimum price for buy it now items of 99p so I've had to put them at that price but if you use the best offer button on eBay you will be able to buy them cheaper than that.

Closing Down Sale - Lots Of Bargains

I have made the very difficult decision over the last week to shut down the business.  The world has changed significantly since 2004 when I first started with a few bottles of Prima Got Flowers.  Paper flowers in those days were the thing for card makers and scrapbookers and over the years I have progressed to making my own in addition to the Prima ones. I also introduced sewn, knitted and crocheted items into my shop. With that progression came a changing way we spend money with the addition of so many pound shops and the like to the UK selling cheap imports and a throw away culture was formed.  The handmade marketplace now is very difficult.  People see they can buy for example a hat for their child or themselves for next to nothing whereas a handmade hat by somebody such as myself would take many hours and quality yarns and the price we have to charge just cannot compare any more. 

Anyway after looking over my accounts I just cannot carry on and the shop will be shutting as soon as all my stock has gone.  I have reduced everything that ebay will allow me to by 50%.  Everything has the best offer button on it and everything should be set up to either accept or decline your offer.  Please don't be offended if your offer is automatically declined.  I have set them as low as I possibly can taking into account that I have to pay postage/ebay/paypal fees out of the price so if it is declined it will be because of that.  You WILL be able to pick up some bargains.

An advanced note regarding paper flowers - I will be taking them all off sale in the next day or two and making up some bargain packs of mixed flowers so it might be best to wait a day or two if you wanted to buy any.
