This past week has been SO much fun for me! I started a little campaign for "14 Days of Giveaways" and I have loved every minute! I've gotten tons of good feedback, seen what you guys like and don't like, and been able to share Mae Mae goodness with lots of new people.
So, since several of y'all are new, I thought I'd take a moment to explain how our Facebook "Sample Sales" go.
It's really quite simple...
Step 1: I will post a photo of each individual item. The photos will start at 8:30pm CST, and will be all posted by around 9:15...so it goes FAST!
Step 2: If you see a photo of an item you would like to purchase, click on it. You will then be able to see a description of the item, the price, quantities available, etc. In the comments section under the photo, write "SOLD" and your email address. If you have already reigstered with Soldsie (we'll come back to what this means in a minute), you can just type "SOLD" and leave off your email address. If you want more than one of an item (for example, 2 dresses), comment twice. Need some examples? Sure you do.
- Not registered with Soldsie: "SOLD, firstname.lastname@example.org"
- Registered with Soldsie: "SOLD"
- Purchasing an item, like a dress, that comes in different sizes: "SOLD, size 4T" (and insert your email if you're not registered with Soldsie)
You get the idea.
Step 3: You will receive a separate invoice from Soldsie for each item that you have purchased. These invoices can be paid all at once through your PayPal account. Invoices not paid within 48 hours will be canceled.
SOOOO...if you see an item that you like, I HIGHLY encourage you to comment even if it appears to be sold out. If the person ahead of you fails to pay their invoice, that little ditty becomes yours.
Step 4: We receive notice that you're all paid up and we ship your items to you! All items will be shipped before the week is out! Viola!
So what is all this business about Soldsie? Soldsie is simply a Facebook app that helps us manage our sales. When you register with Soldsie, you can opt to keep everything private, or post your purchases on your own Facebook wall. You can choose to receive occasional emails from Soldsie, or you can opt out of that as well. All of your information is completely secure and private, in fact, you will still pay your invoices through PayPal. Soldsie just keeps things all neat and tidy on our end. Which is nice. But, if you are not comfortable registering with our Soldsie account, you can always type in your email address and we will bill you manually.
The benefit to pre-registering with Soldsie before the sale starts is that you can save valuable time when you go to purchase an item. Many of our items are one-of-a-kind, so that means the fastest fingers often "win" that item. If you're already registered, just type in "SOLD" and you're done. If you would like to go ahead and register, you may do so here: https://shop.soldsie.com/shop/bonjourmaemae
So, there you have it, folks. Our normal Sample Sales will be on the first Monday of every month at 8:30pm CST...although don't be surprised if we have a few Flash Sales here and there. We like to spice things up like that. I am a red head, you know.
