Okay, first off, I want everyone to pledge to me that they will stop listening to the news. All of the worry and stress over the economy and the bailouts and lost jobs is hurting everyone even more! I think people are listening to all the mayhem and then going into panic mode and not living like normal.
Now, I'm not saying "look the other way, and keep blowing money!" I definately believe in having a good savings and being smart with money...but I also strongly believe in supporting small businesses and local businesses. If everyone totally freaks out and stops spending money, we're all screwed. For instance, little companies like mine will have to try desperately to make sales, charging a lot less for their product out of desperation, then making less profit, which means less to put back into the business, which means a scary spiral downward. Now, we are a company which is out of debt and gives 10% of our revenue to charity, however we still need our loyal customers! Thus, if you will go and take a look at our ebay shop, you'll see a lot of corsets that are on sale for amazing deals! We understand people are strapped for cash, but we're groveling at your feet asking you to help support us. We, in turn, support many other facets of the economy! Go to our ebay store and check it out. If you've ever thought "Oh, man I want one of those corsets soooo bad" but felt like you didn't have the money, I will let you know that the starting bid on most of them is HALF PRICE. Basically, we're barely breaking even, after putting all the high quality materials into them. This is a great opportunity, and hopefully, if you're able to get your first corset from us and you're converted over to our corsets, you'll become a loyal customer that will get amazing corsets and customer service for many years! As for me, I'm going to go and do some Christmas shopping on etsy.com and ebay, and support other small companies!!!
