It has come to our attention that some SHOPSICLE customers believe that clicking on the "Purchase" button will result in an actual purchase of the item. Not so!

In fact, the "Purchase" button will merely take you to the item on its "Mother-Website", where you will be able to gather more information about the item: a detailed description, news of any sales or promotions, delivery time, and other pertinent information.

If you ultimately wish to purchase the item, just follow the commands provided there.

Since there is usually more information available (and often some great related-product ideas), don't hesitate to click the "Purchase" button or the link beneath, to explore options.

We have noted on each item, at the bottom, the key word or item number to enter in the search box once on the "Mother-Website", i.e. Red Envelope, Hammacher Schlemmer, etc. Once entered, click "go", and it will bring you straight to the product. If we mention no number or keyword, just clicking "Purchase" will take you to the item.

If you have any other questions, please contact us. It is our mission to make your shopping experience fast and easy!

Dear Friends,

Where does the time go? Seems as if we go from one holiday to the next. Very happy to see spring arrive. Our crocus is blooming and the daffodils are in bud.

Happy St Patrick's Day to all of you! Don't forget to wear green tomorrow.

Karen and I have been busy making spring/summer product selections for Shopsicle. Hope you like what we picked out. We found some really beautiful accessories, and wonderful color. Great color! I'm still looking around for really good printed soft goods accessories such as placemats and napkins. I'm very tired of the "fire sale" look. Aren't you? We have some gorgeous needlepoint pillows . Click on Home Accents in Shopsicle, and go into livingroom and bed and bath.

If you haven't yet signed up for our newsletters, what are you waiting for? The next letter is going to be about "hot trends" and choosing furniture. The newsletters are full of good useful information and they are our gift to you. So join in, sign up and enjoy.

I want to thank all of you for your much appreciated patronage and good wishes. Keep sending us those letters and be sure to keep us on our toes.

My best wishes always. J.
