TeawareArtisan Special Offer (TA SO) program!

by Chip » Apr 14th, '10, 01:00

Announcing the all new TeaChat TeawareArtisan Special Offer Program (TA SO). This should be quite interesting as each TeawareArtisan seems to present a different approach to this concept.

But the bottom line is, our TeawareArtisans will each have the opportunity to have their own Special Offer, probably one Teaware Artisan each month, more or less. This might take a little time to get going, but we don't want to rush our creative artisans, right?

The "TA/SO" pieces will be made specially for the special offering, for members of TeaChat. I expect each Artisan will be doing something special, unique, different. So hang on, this is going to be an exciting journey that our TA's will take us on.

The initial "TA/SO" will be officially introduced early next week. But the hand was tipped a bit early in Chris Chaney/ChicagoPotter's topic. I will be creating a special topic, so keep your eyes open. The topic will include photos of all the pieces and information on how you can obtain a TeawareArtisan Special Offer #1 piece.

Wow, out of 27 pieces in the offering, 23 were sold in the first 12 hours. So, still 4 pieces are available!

So, the TC TA SO program is off to a great start. Thanks to all who have participated by purchasing and supporting our TAs.

And a special thank you to ChicagoPotter, Chris Chaney, for being our first artisan for this new program. And congratulations!

So, Round 1 was a huge success.

Round 2 cometh!!! T minus 12 days (hopefully, these are still in final stages of production!). It has been quite enjoyable to watch the progress which I am sure we will share with everyone at the proper time.

Be there
... or may all your teaware
be square!

You are teasing. How will I know what to budget? How will I rearrange the teashelves to accomodate new wares? How will I plan my vacation so I will be here for the mail truck?!

The agony!

I would suggest never leaving the www. And skip eating for now which takes you away from the 'puter and costs TeaBucks!

Final firing is this week, I am crossing fingers and toes. Kiln gods are readied. I think all the bases are covered

This will be known as the TC-TA Crash. Leads us into a new crisis. Cash flow has stoped. No one wants to spend money. I even put mine under the mattress. Everyone is waiting. Economy stagnates. Everyone is waiting for the 10th of July. -- hey Chip what have you done here? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
