A note about Valentine's Day

OK, OK I am a known cynic about Valentine's Day...so why the special!?

Well, I could make up a bunch of stuff about how although it is an over commercialized holiday which makes people who are single feel like crap, it can also be a reminder to tell the ones you love how much they mean to you.

But, the truth is that I thought the free shipping thing would generate some flurry of orders in a usually quiet time.

It's so weird how the universe operates, a few weeks ago I experienced a series of what I would call personal set-backs. (I don't see this as a forum to vent my troubles so 'nuff said on that!)

Anyhoo, I had several orders in at the same time, not only that, they were hot and were needed quickly. I've been making these hats for over 5 years and I've made hundreds of them. I have never once in my life had such trouble getting the job done! In a word I failed. I got them out late and my customers missed important events to which they wanted to wear them!! Needless to say, I did my best to make it up by giving them some money back but that was small comfort.

Now that I'm through the storm so to speak and the clouds are clearing...biz is very slow. Not that it would bother me really but my other work is slow too. What to do? Well, put on a Valentine's day promotion of course!!!

Ok so now with that said, if you're looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift and you've already ordered one of my hats for the fun loving weirdo in your life, but still need a gift for the loved one who wouldn't be caught dead in a faux fur hat, who also happens to be curious about human consciousness and the evolution of our species, I recommend the book 'The Seat of the Soul' by Gary Zukov.

I can't believe it was written in 1989 and I'm just now reading it. Zukov has a way of explaining the facts better than anyone I've seen yet, and trust me, I've seen and read a lot.

Anyhow, if you made it this far, I absolutely LOVE you.

Smooches and Happy, Happy Valentine's Day to YOU!!!
Ms Presto
