Where do you find all this cool stuff?

Posted by Jules Happy Rone in News, Shopping

It's a question I hear often.  People walk in the shop and their eyes get big as they try to take it all in.  If you haven't been in the store in person, you'd probably never guess that I have all of this neat stuff inside a store that's less than 800 square feet.  I'm complimented often that the store never feels crammed or cluttered - which is a daily challenge!  lol  When I find a new line I have to take a good hard look around and figure out just where it will fit, and if it's not REALLY special, it doesn't deserve the space.

That said, where do I find my products?  Two places - everywhere and anywhere.  I know, that sounds silly, but it's true! I find products in catalogs, in industry magazines, online, by recommendation from reps, friends and customers, from other store owners, my eyes are constantly open for neat things, and I have a whole folder of possibilities.  

Now, I have a pretty broad range of products - so broad that some people don't understand how they fit together.  What I explain is that I go for cool, quirky, unique, and really neat stuff.  I know, that seems like it doesn't narrow things down much, and that's true, too.  lol

When I bought the store it was an art gallery, with a few collectable lines - namely Harmony Kingdom, the only line from back then that I still carry - and some art books and cards.  The art gallery part went away with the artist who used to own the store.  The collectable lines expanded some into fairies and other neat figurines, the art books morphed into art books for kids, then funny books for kids, and funny books for adults.  The cards expanded and added bookmarks, magnets and puzzles.  One of the collectable line companies led me into fantastically funny mugs.  I've always been a huge fan of crystals and sparkles, so it was an easy transition to add chimes, crystals, glass and spinners.  Pretty Tools were fun and functional, and when the same company started making Rug Coasters and then Aluminum Armor Wallets, I immediately ordered.  Then I started finding more lines that I just loved.  At first it maybe didn't seem to make sense when I started adding the more FUNctional products.  But, well, I had to sell Poo~Pourri.  It just amused me too much not to.  (And it really works, too!)  That somehow led to Charles Viancin - the awesome silicone lids that I honestly started carrying because I really wanted to try them.  *snicker*  Hey, it seemed to work, my customers love them just as much!  In the last year or so I've added Manicure Sets, Emery Boards, Matches, Napkins, Finger Puppets and Soap, all very functional (yes, even the finger puppets!) but more importantly they're fun and funny.  I have people in here every day giggling at the great products.  Most recently I discovered the Freaker Drink Koozies and my customers immediately fell in love - as did I.  So, is there a theme to what I sell?  Well, like I said, I think the theme is "really neat stuff."

Again I go back to the space issue.  If I see a new product that I like, first I have to love it.  Second, I have to KNOW my customers are going to love it.  Third, it has to fit in to my store "theme" - see above.  And fourth, I have to have a place to put it!  Sometimes I dream about a bigger space, but this has been our home for 20 years.  It's cozy, it's comfy and I know every inch of the space.  It also makes me be verrrry picky with my products, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.  ;)

Lemonade Sale at Jules!

Posted by Jules Happy Rone in Sale, Shopping

When Life hands you Lemons ...

This has been such an odd Spring, it's been hot, it's been cold, we've had our street torn up by construction, we've had to close for them to pour concrete, we've had hail, tornado warnings ... It's to the point that if it starts raining frogs I'd probably not be surprised! ;)

 

Hopefully now that Summer is finally almost ready to start, things will calm down a little. *fingers crossed*

 

Meanwhile, our lemons are your lemonade!

 

We have TWO sales going from now until Tuesday, June 21st.  But, with limited stock available, make sure to place your orders before the sale goes away!

Sale #1

I’ve marked down almost 200 items 25% off! And, since some of these great goodies were already on sale, when you figure in the additional 25% off, some are 40-50%off now!

Use code SUMMER to receive the extra 25% off through midnight on Tuesday, June 21st!

Shop the Sale Now!

Sale #2

In an unprecedented move, ALL in stock Pot Bellys are currently 10% off for you, our wonderful favorite customers!

Looking for a Pot Belly that we have but isn't in this collection? It probably means that it's temporarily out of stock. We will have more Pot Bellys arriving in early July, a few are just out of stock and therefore not on sale right now, sorry!

Use code SUMMERPB to receive 10% off through midnight on Tuesday, June 21st!

Shop the Sale Now!

And, speaking of lemonade, my favorite way to drink it is to start with a little strawberry vodka then equal parts Pink Moscato and Lemonade. Try it over ice for a great treat while you're shopping our collection! *always shop (and drink) responsibly*

 

We hope your Spring is calmer than ours has been,

and here's to a great Summer.

I'll drink to that!

:)

New Soap, New Fairy Doors, New Finger Puppets, Oh Boy!

It's always an adventure around here, and it's always fun when I find a new product line.  This week we got TWO new lines in (and a few other new goodies) and I can't wait to share with all of my awesome customers!

First of all, I get asked all the time about soap and now I finally have a fantastic new line of soap called Foam Sweet Foam!  Need to get obsessively clean? Freud's Wash Fulfillment Soap is for you. Looking to wash away the superficial? Andy's 15 Minutes of Foam! Pure cosmic purposelessness? Nihilism Soap. There's Nothing. Like it. These Foam Sweet Foam soaps are adorable, hysterical, and they smell FABULOUS!  At only $3 each they make a great add on gift or addition to your guest room.  What else could we expect from the fabulous Unemployed Philosopher's Club?

Second, another new line I've absolutely fallen in love with!  Do you have fairies living in your house?  Do they need a home of their own?  Come find their door, made by the enchanting Irish Fairy Door Company!  Choose the color and design of the door, then leave the key out overnight for your fairy to find.  In the morning the key will be gone and you'll know that your fairy has moved in!  Leave out Garden and Playtime accessories for them to play with and your fairy may even leave you a note!  

Last but not least in the new items this week, new Magnetic Personalities!  Batman, Superman, WonderWoman, Jesus, Frida Kahlo and Andy Warhol, they make for great new options to enter our PuppetMe contest!  https://www.facebook.com/events/154280981630144/

Yay to all the new goodies, I really hope you all enjoy as much as I do.  

Now off to play ...  (No foolin!)

PuppetMe Contest!

Like to win stuff? Want to travel or dine with someone famous? Wondering what these two things have to do with each other? Well, I'm about to tell you, stop being so impatient! ;)

This weekend is the start of our Puppet Me contest. To enter, choose your favorite Magnetic Personality. http://www.julesenchantinggifts.com/collections/magnetic-personalities Then, tell us why or where you'd like to take the puppet. Write a sentence, write a story! Are you planning a road trip and could use Elvis to help navigate? Are you planning a heist and need to run everything by Sherlock Holmes first? All submissions - either via e-mail (orders@julesenchantinggifts.com) or through facebook - must be received by April 18th. Then comes the fun part. All submissions will be posted on facebook for all to see. One like = one vote. The top 5 people with the most votes at midnight on May 13th will win the finger puppet they chose. The one person with the most votes will also win a $40 Jules Gift Certificate! *We'll ship the finger puppets to you for free if you win if you're inside the US* (Please remember that these entries will be public so nothing dirty - this is a family store!)

Have you met the Magnetic Personality Finger Puppets yet? Sure, they're absolutely great for kids and to teach them about famous and interesting people. They're also great for adults ... or at least all the adults I know! Presidents, artists, authors, scientists, there's a Magnetic Personality for every personality. Great for teaching, for kids, for when your fingers are cold and lonely, or, for when you don't want to drink alone. I have a friend who selected one for each attendee of a dinner party she was hosting. Shakespeare has helped a local theater learn Kiss Me, Kate. Someone else recently took Marilyn Monroe to Switzerland!

You never know where the Magnetic Personalities will wind up next, make sure you follow us on facebook and instagram to follow their journey!
