The summer months are great because of the warmer weather, no school, etc. but it is also known in the retail world to be some of the slowest months of the year in terms of sales ... however what I've noticed is that some shops will offer great discounts and promotions in order to help stir up the lazy hazy days of summer and try to generate more sales, which definitely drew me in to take advantage of some of these great offers!
Here are some of my latest finds! I cant wait for them to arrive in the mail soon! :)
One way to offer a sale is to "Discount" your items. . . For those who've visited Boston's Quincy Market, you're likely to find one of those outdoor vendors selling these cool pieces of fabric that can be worn in a bunch of different ways! I've been wanting one for a long time, and then I found this fun dress by MyBaju that can be worn in 4 different ways! These were originally $50, but now are $38!
Another way to have a sale is to have a "Clearance" section in your shop. . . I've been looking for a handy simple bag to store all my knickknacks that I always need to transfer from purse to purse. This little pouch by OregonMaid seems like the perfect item to hold my mints, pens, keys, eye drops, pocket mirror, purse hook, etc. as I switch from using last night's evening purse to my work purse the next morning!
Another great promotion I like to offer is to have "Free Shipping" for your items! I'd love to offer a special deal just for my blog followers! After shopping at MaJenta Designs, during Checkout, simply type "Blog special - Free shipping" in the "message to seller", then complete your payment as normal. Afterwards, I will contact you directly to refund the shipping charges. Offer is good through Labor Day (September 7, 2009)
