Our new shop looks wonderful! Violet walls, an antique boudoir style sofa with delicate golden legs and arms, stylish curtains in the shop windows and the most gorgeous designer lingerie in the shop windows and tomorrow we have reserved for some more interiors shopping. Just fab!
So really everything could be just beautiful, if there were no telecommunication companies in the world. Who needs them anyway? As they dont seem to sell telecommunication. Really, I dont know what they do – Edlyn and me keep guessing – but for sure, they dont do in telecommunications. Same for logistic companies by the way.
We personally think that all these “service” companies purposely use leading words such as transport, logistics, telecommunications etc in their names to trick innocent people into believing they would actually do something for you. But then, when you ask for a specific service, it seems that the whole company just dissolves into hundreds of helplines with unfriendly people sitting around the world and all they do is driving you mad over the phone with blatant ignorance to hide the simple fact that the requested service, nor any other service for that matter, would exist.
We can tell you, being an online shop without internet access is a lot fun! And explaining this to German telecommunication companies is even more fun.
But we have survived moving from one office to another.
Good news is that over x-mas the portion of our male customers has increased dramatically! It seems as there are a lot of really nice guys out there, that fear no costs nor effort to surprise the queen of their hearts with a very special gift. Funny enough, we realised that guys always buy the more delicate, more costly, more luxurious – and of course more sexy outfit – than girls would do. They instead would rather go for the more practical thing. Who said again that guys don’t like shopping? I think, goal oriented as they are, guys just need something that motivates them. And what could be more motivating than seeing your heart’s queen in some hot Madame V babydoll? We had two big x-mas bestsellers: The Merveilleuse Set by Chantal Thomass and the Opium Set by Madame V.
We are very curious what will be the bestseller for Valentine’s Day…
We’ll see next time.
