Happy Customer

Anyone who is in business, knows the first customer is the hardest customer to obtain.  After the sale, what can you do to keep your customer coming back to your business?

You want a Happy Customer!  A customer, who can not say enough good thoughts about you and your company.  If you have employees, be sure they greet each customer with a smile and offer help if needed.   With every transaction, be sure to have the WOW factor:

Wrap their purchase with fresh tissue paper when packaging.  Make a special home delivery.  If your customer is looking for something you do not have, be helpful in locating that item, even if it needs to be a call to a competitor.  Each sales invoice should have a Thank You imprinted on the invoice or handwritten.

Always let your customer know how much you appreciate them and ask how you can improve their shopping experience.
This tote is just one of our new Spring items.  I love the poppy imprint. Beautiful Spring Tote $35.00 

Fun Project

Decorating my home and customers' homes are the best times I have at using my creative thinking side of my brain.  I love color and spend a lot of time in comparing tints and shades of various color blends.This project has some beautiful colors and more can be shown by using glass objects to help reflect the light. 

Tools needed:   Scissors, damp cloth, clean dry jar, water and decals

Directions:    First wet the area where the decal will be applied. Cut loosely around decal and place in a bowl of tepid water.
                     Wait 30 seconds or so until you can 'feel' the decal separate from the paper.  Then carefully slide decal onto surface.  Be careful not to crease the decal.
               Lightly wipe decal with a damp cloth or paper towel in order to smooth out any bubbles.   Allow to dry.  Option: Apply a coat of clear varnish over the object to seal the decal.

Fragrances of Fall

The beauty and smells of Fall brings us all close to home or at least longing to be home. At Tea Time Consultants, we have been traveling a lot this year. A well planned trip occurred in July and most of the month was spent in Europe and a seven (7) day river cruise on the Danube was so much fun. We met wonderful people from all over the world as well as our friends in the Houston area.

Coming back home and back to work with some new exciting Thirty-One products was really not work at all. Shown here are three new items: Essential tote on the left in Vintage Damask print $28.00, the Reversible tote in the center sells for $88.00 and the inside can be reverse on the outside for a gold rubbed metallic look. The thermal on the right, is really one of my hot sellers, especially for the summers in Houston. It is the Leak Lock Thermal for $48.00.  The family members love it!
The Houston Expo Build was a great success at the NRG building. We manned the NAWIC booth and it was well attended.  Along with meeting people in the industry, we were able to show off some of our handy totes.

These sassy totes run in prices of $15.00 to $25.00 allowing the NAWIC members to take advantage of the discounts offered. 

These two soft totes are the same de
sign, but as you can see, look completely different. The multi print with blue sells for $45.00.
 This soft tote shown here in the black and then I added the Metallic lettering added a cost of $7.00 for a total of the black soft tote $52.00. A beautiful classy tote for everything a girl has.
Have a very Happy Happy Thanksgiving for you and your family!!

Bubble Bloom

Spring has finally arrived!  I just love this new print----Bubble Bloom. I have shown here the same print with two different colors of monogramming.   The first photo here is the "crafts" in lime green.                 
 The second photo is using the New True Turquoise color thread.  Which do you like the best?   The Bubble Bloom has so many other colors in the print.  Just perfect for any room you might want to change out the decor.  These cute little Oh Snap Bins are on special this month for $5.00 each with a $35.00 purchase. Great for kids rooms, craft rooms and the teacher's desk.   Also, with the additional snaps on the side, these can be used in the car for snacks or tissue holders.

 This cute table setting is showing our new product.  T go Snack Bites
This product is so easy to use and will let you look good and feel good.  Just shake on your breakfast and lunch.  It is great for a brain booster as well. 

T go Snack Bites are gluten free, no preservatives and great at keeping blood sugars level. 

This Saturday, April 18th we will have our T  go Snack Bites packaged and ready to sell at the Locavore Farmers Market.  Louetta and Jones Road 9:00am to 1:00pm.

Dining chairs accessories

Just wanted my Tea Time Consultant friends in on one little dinning room chair accent that is so fun to do when you want a slight change in your dinning room with guests coming.   Shown here at Christmas was the chair covers using 2 yards each of satin 36" width fabric and tulle in a slight different color with the glitter in  a length of 3 yards per chair or experiment with the length you want to drape behind each chair. 

First cut the satin length and gather at each chair with the tie at the back.  Then do the same with the tulle and make a big, full bow.  After the bow is in place, use your favorite accent piece, which mine shown here had the pipe cleaners with attached sparkles and Christmas accents in raspberry colors.

No sewing involved, easy to switch out for Valentine's day.  I think for February I will use my favorite color of pink and reds with the white bows.

NOTE:  Little brain teaser
How many F's are in the following sentence?  Finished files are the result of years of scientific study and also years of experience.

Northwest Nut Cracker Market

Just a couple of preview night shots overlooking the action of setup and excitement of customers.  Nothing gets the sparkle faster in the ladies' eye than a wonderful shopping trip.  Everyone had a great time, those candy apples were excellent!
Tea time consultants booth shown here in the lower right hand corner.  Directly across from those great candy apples. 

Neighbor was Jazzercise. 
Yes, we still have our aprons, each sells for $22.00.  Heritage Lace print shown here in blue/white and spring green. 

Hottest selling items in November are these cute Chevron print baskets.  Need something for the "Man Cave"?  We can help--golf balls, TV snacks and of course little baskets of chocolates.

Falling Leaves

Falling leaves means falling prices.  Check us out, we have closed our Katy location and now currently are located in Cypress, TX.  Beautiful lace and the runners with brocade show very good against the dark woods for fall.

This ivory trim is perfect for a bed skirt. 

With Fall selections, we need the perfect table cloth for Thanksgiving. 

Easy way to decorate with the tea rose pattern runner by adding white pumpkins from Hobby Lobby, alternate with candles and background use the white Christmas tree lights.  Very inexpensive.
