Price Increase :(

Junkin Around the Christmas Tree is just three weeks away.... the countdown is scaring me! I have more stuff to do than I have days before me...BUT, it will all get done, it always does.

As I was working on all the good junk over the weekend I realized something that I will have to do for this year's holiday sales...raise my prices...YIKES!!!!!  I already raised prices on some items for my spring and summer sales this year, and I hated doing it. Several of my friends and customers have told me that my prices are already too low and that raising them will not be a big deal, but it is a big deal to me.

It's too bad that good junk is getting harder to find at good prices. I still get the occasional freebies from people that just want to get rid of stuff rather than having to haul it away, but overall, I am spending more than I have in the past. I will not be raising the prices signifcantly, a few dollars here and there....most people may not notice the difference, I hope. And, I hope that people will be willing to pay that extra dollar or two for something recycled, handcrafted, and locally made.

so, just another reminder...

Customer Feedback

I had several of you ask if these lighted branches were for sale at Harvest of Junk...I did not want to sell the ones I had in fear of not being able to get any more. The supplier I use was out of some of the other sizes/styles that I wanted so I was afraid they might run out of these - especially as it gets closer to the holiday season.
The branch pictured here is LED, with 32 lights and is battery-operated. I would price them at $13.00 each. The great thing about them is that they really do give off a lot of light and you only need a few branches to create a great display. I would like to get some of the bigger branches (60 lights) but will have to wait and see if the supplier gets more.

I would also like feedback on the sweater pumpkins. They were a HIT!!! Would you buy more of these at Junkin' Around the Christmas Tree? I realize it is a Christmas show, but it is also a few weeks before thought maybe some of you would purchase them for that.

Leave a comment and let me know!
