The holiday madness is over, inventory’s counted, and it’s time to look back at 2014 and look ahead for 2015. Christmas is the busiest time of the year for selling fabric gift bags, and in 2014 our Amazon sales really took off causing us to sell out of some fabrics a little earlier than I’d have liked. We promise to be better prepared this year!
Our most popular Christmas bag in 2014 was Frosty Fabulousity!
If you’re a fan and would like to add to your existing gift bags, now’s the time. Frosty is marked down 20% through Jan 30th, and inventory is getting low. I do not believe he’ll be back for Christmas 2015. Most of our current Christmas selections will be discontinued, except possibly Christmas Critters (almost gone) and Red Damask (out of stock) which may return.
We essentially sold out of Silver Dreidels for Hanukkah, as there are only a few mini bags left. I’m already checking out some new patterns for Hanukkah bags in 2015. Menorahs, anyone?
Oh, and speaking of our mini gift bags -- they're being discontinued, too. We will not be making minis from any new fabrics and will not replace existing patterns as they sell out.
I am continually searching for new fabrics for our Birthday gift bags, and I am definitely narrowing down some options. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for some sneak peeks and a chance to cast your vote! While our Black Birthdays gift bags will hang around for a while, Cupcakes will be discontinued when the bags sell out.
The thing I like the most about so many of our cloth gift bags is that they are truly versatile and can be used for a variety of gift giving occasions. Gold Damask and Simply Red were very popular as Christmas gift bags, but can be used all year long to wrap any type of gift. One style that I’m definitely shopping for is something a little more masculine for wrapping gifts for the guys. Hopefully, I’ll find just the right fabric in plenty of time for Father’s Day!
Now is the time to stock up on our existing bags as they are marked down anywhere from 10% up to 35%! This sale will end on January 30th so think ahead to what’s happening in 2015. Anyone getting married or having a baby? What birthdays are on the horizon? Tired of scrambling for a wine bag for hostess gifts or housewarmings? As usual, shipping in the US is free on orders of $50 or over.
