Are you running around trying to remember all the gifts you need to buy?  Don’t forget yourself!  My inventory reduction sale starts at 10 a.m. on 12/6 TODAY, and ends at 4 p.m. on 12/17.  I’m doing it a little backwards from the norm (because that’s me, a little backwards!).  Read on for details of how much you can SAVE.

WEBSITE CUSTOMERS!  Please call me to place your order OR if you’re ordering one canvas only, use the code IRS (inventory reduction sale).  That will take 20% off your canvas but call if you want to purchase more than one canvas so that you receive the discount.  810-694-3040.  Leave a message if calling after hours.

Buy any one IN STOCK painted canvas get 20% off (all sale-priced canvases will be discounted further!)

Buy two and the HIGHER PRICED CANVAS is 25% off (that’s the backwards part, usually we discount the lowest item.)

Buy three or more and the HIGHEST PRICED CANVAS is 30% off, 25% off the others!  (If you’re buying six, I’ll discount the two highest priced canvases at 30% off).

Ask me to thread up one or more of your treasures and receive 20% off all threads I pull for the canvas.  I’ll want to know your favorite threads…and your LEAST favorite!

This is the time of year to stock up!  Shop early for best selection.  Sale ends Saturday, December 17.
