Bumbershoot Designs and Supplies' New Website is Live!!!

You can now purchase our vintage supplies on our own website,!

I think it was in a newsletter last November that I said I could see the light at the end of the tunnel and that we would be providing our vintage supplies on our own website soon. Well, we finally made it. We went live on Tuesday, Mar 29, and everything is working very well.
We will continue to make our vintage supplies available at Bumbershoot Supplies on Etsy, of course. But I think there are numerous advantages to customers with the new website. Here are the top 10 benefits to you of our new website, in no particular order (with photos of some of the new products that have been added to Bumbershoot Supplies and Bumbershoot Designs this week):

1. You can purchase multiple lots of items without having to talk to me :)

2. Information about each item is organized to provide the age, country of origin, material, size, pieces per lot, so you can quickly see the pertinent statistics for each product.

3. There is a zoom feature so you can get really close to the products.

4. There is considerably more freedom in categorizing items, allowing us to place products into more than one category, if they reasonably fit in more than one category. I hope this will spark your creativity in terms of how to use our products and will help you more readily find the products you are interested in.

5. You can make a wish list.

6. There is a “new arrivals” section, where you can see all the products that have been added to the website in the previous 2 weeks. (Right now, everything is new since we just went live on Tuesday…)

7. The website collects together in one place all of our extra resources: the featured artist blog posts, the inspiration boards, the tutorials, our newsletter sign up and all of the past issues.

8. We can provide both designs and supplies in the same location, which I hope will provide inspiration in terms of how the supplies can be used. If you are interested in purchasing designs, maybe you will be tempted to try out a few of the supplies too. We will be adding my designs over the coming month or so.

9. We have more flexibility when it comes to coupon codes, which is good news for our newsletter subscribers.

10. We continue to be as easy to reach through this website as ever, you will be able to directly contact me using my email address.
I hope you will click on over to Bumbershoot Designs and Supplies and check it out! If you have any questions at any time, just let me know.

Until next time, wishing you a great weekend!
