a hint to LJ - the academie line was sold out of stock nationwide - customers like this line and in this price range - they need to give us more options like it. I have sold this line to customers that would have normally walked out because of budget reasons as well as selling their highest end lines. People like te choices and I like to be able to sell custom to all budgets.
first year for us to have the C'mas rush rush, lovin it, but also hating it
Hmmm, sold out you say? ... Anyone looking for some? No more than 1 1/2 times the price!
I've been buying box quantity Academie from the beginning in each color and the two smallest sizes, as well as the third largest gold. This is by far my best selling line here in New England.
It looks good and the price is right for a lot of people. Also, I've been able to sell the new Monterey leaf'd line to customers that want to "be compatible" but have something "a little better." Makes for a great "companion" line!$!
Yeah, I used three boxes of the 1" Nurre since September myself. It makes a nice "sale saver." I can usually get someone into a flat black rather than let them go off looking for ready mades somewhere else.
But, the LJ Academie fits that nice "I want it to look colonial, but not too expensive" look that these New England Yankees want.
I also got to agree with the profit potenial of the Nurre Architectural line. Just sold a five frame package tonight for delivery on the 24th because I had it in stock.
Also bought some LJ clearance for .20 - .40 cents per foot. Nice money makey. Sold a frame job yesterday for $89.00. Had six foot of moulding at .20cents a foot, double mat out of fall out and scrap piece of glass. Let's see, that's about $1.20 in actual material and the rest out of the scrap pile. Nice!
