You occasionally hear about a Christmas in July sale. I have always found it hard to believe people are starting their holiday shopping almost six months ahead of time. Aren’t we all crazy busy?
But it is holiday gift list time of the year. I have sent responses to over thirty publications requesting product information and photos for holiday gift lists to be published in November or December issues. Lisa Robin Jewelry has been listed in a few before but how cool would it be to have Marie Claire Magazine or Good Housekeeping feature our Message Bracelets? Or what about Instyle or Veranda adding our Trilogy Collection to their well-curated list? Now we just wait for the call.
Some publications request samples. I just finished packing up a selection of The Sister Accord items and shipped them to O-The Oprah Magazine. It is a thrilling thought for me and Sonia Jackson Myles, my partner in The Sister Accord Jewelry Collection, our collection might become one of Oprah’s favorite things. I mean it is…Oprah! It makes me nervous just thinking about the possibility of a call.
Thank you, FedEx for notification that The Sister Accord sample selection arrived at the address on Maingate Lane. What if our possible partnership with Disney moves to the next steps? Would the stars and moon align, to meet Oprah who is reportedly signed on to star as Mrs. Which in Disney’s adaptation of the classic novel “A Wrinkle In Time” and sign on with Disney at the same time?
