Your Project Life
I'd just like to take a minute to chat about something big. I listen to what our customers ask for, and I do my best to carry what you want. After all, I want to sell you something, why not make it the right thing?! When Becky Higgins announced that her Project Life merchandise would now be available for sale in stores (instead of just online), we heard you - a lot. We had so many customers ask if we'd be carrying her products.
Well, we didn't hesititate and we ordered it all. This is a very big commitment for an independent retailer. We're excited to be one of only two independent stores in MI carrying the full line. I know, you've seen her products at some of the big box stores already. We know they get priority when it comes to things like this. But what I'm asking is, since we've ordered the full shebang for our customers, that you keep that in mind when making your purchasing decisions. We really do love ordering what we know you want. But to commit to something this large (it will take up a full wall in the album section of the store), we sure hope our customers who have asked us to carry it don't decide to purchase it elsewhere.
So, I'll step down from my soap box now. What I really want to mention is that we're very excited to be carrying something like this, and we hope you'll tell your friends who aren't yet into scrapbooking about it. It's so easy, and anyone can do it (even those who say they aren't creative). I have been told that our order is scheduled to ship out next week, so we expect it by early June. I know that sounds far away but, really, it's not. :) We have some samples set up in our foyer at the store in case you want to check them out. Angela, from our design team, has also been using these products for a while, and has pages hanging in the store, as well. Plus, here's a link to Becky's website with a short video explaining Project Life for those who aren't as familiar with it (www.BeckyHiggins.com).
I love our customers, and I know you do your part to keep us in business... We appreciate it. :)
