Butterfly Tea Party | Charity Fundraiser

This month I’m helping to raise £50,000 for Together for Short Lives, the UK’s leading charity for children’s hospice care.

June 2014 is Phoenix Trading’s Butterfly Tea Party month. For the whole of the month, Phoenix Trading will make a donation to Together for Short Lives for everything purchased from the new Charity Supplement. Donations vary from 20p to £2 per product.

If you live in Sheffield, I still have a few dates in my diary for Butterfly Tea Parties, and if you would like to get some friends together for a coffee and a slice of cake, or a glass of wine and a few nibbles, I will happily bring around my cards and stationery.

In addition to the product donations, I will be donating an extra 10% of all of my sales at Butterfly Tea Parties, to this worthy cause.

Not only will you have a chance to browse my new products and catch up with friends, you will be raising money for a wonderful charity, supporting children and their families here in the UK.

To order online just visit my website, or to enquire about hosting a tea party please email.

Getting ready for Christmas, already!

I’m currently very busy with getting started with Christmas. I know its only August, but my business is set to increase 100% leading up to Christmas.

I’m very excited about the new product lines which Phoenix have brought out this year, there is a great selection of cards, new wrapping paper and accessories. All this should prove very easy to sell. 

Why am I starting so early with Christmas? Easy answer: the more preparations and planning I do will increase my sales!

I’ve submitted my mailing list database to Phoenix Trading last week, the mailing house will post the new brochure out to my customers for me. Another easy win! 100 customers will be receiving a copy come mid-September. My brochure is my like my Shop Window, I need as many people to see it as possible. 

Last week I attended a gift wrapping course with More Pretty Things to learn new gift wrapping techniques. I’ve covered the basics of wrapping boxes, odd shapes, bottles and some Japanese Pleating skills. I’ve since gone and bought lots of ribbons, wrapping paper and cellophane! I’m going to be offering these skills on a free demonstration basis to customers which have a Christmas Card & Wine Party. I just need to find time over the weekend to tell them all!

I’m opening my house to all my customers for an all day Card Party on 22nd September. From 1pm and 6pm anyone can pop by to see the new Christmas range and have a gift wrapping demonstration. Its going to be sooo much fun! Hopefully people can see the potential of hosting their own party event too. 

All the stock is ordered, so I’m looking forward to a busy sales period.

But if you cannot wait to see the new range, pop over to by website and take a look.

Don’s Say the ‘C’ Word!

I’m getting ready for the Christmas Countdown and starting to organise my business and my time effectively. I’ve just finished reading through my latest newsletter and the new Christmas Supplement that Phoenix Trading sent to me over the weekend. This Christmas promises to be extraordinary, I love many of the new products and I can spot a few great sellers already!

At Phoenix HQ, over three and a half million cards, 30,000 gift bags, 40,000 bookmarks, and 50,000 advent calendars have arrived in stock. It promises to be a bumper Christmas, I’m sooo excited. Its leading up to the busiest time of the year for a Phoenix Trader, so I’ve already started my preparations in August! I’m in the process of compiling a database of customers of whom I will be sending the Christmas Supplement to, I’ve been teasing customers about the forth-coming release and asking them to host a party event for me.

I’m also attending a Gift Wrapping Course in the next few weeks to pick up new skills for wrapping a present in the best possible way, and tying lovely bows on them. I will then use these new skills to offer free demonstrations to customers who book a Christmas Cards & Wine Party. If you are interested in having a Christmas party event to earn free products and spread the cost of Christmas, please contact me (available in the Sheffield area only).

The entire Christmas range is available to view and buy on my website, so please feel free to be the first to see it!
