Hello Ladybug Lovers –

We’re looking for some feedback on a possible idea that we have. We were thinking of developing a catalog of ALL or MANY of our items and then creating a “Ladybug Party”, somewhat like a Pampered Chef party.  We were thinking of starting here in Milford, since it’s local and the retail space is now closed, it would give the members of the community to shop without shipping cost. If it works out – we would then venture out to other locations.
The party would run like this. We would bring a small sampling of items so the attendees would have an idea about some of the products we carry. We would hand out the catalogs with order forms and let the guests order from the catalog or our website. Once orders were placed we could either arrange for pick-up or shipment. Hopefully the host would have party treats like every good hostess would. We would offer specials on some items and offer the host/hostess a percentage off of their order based on the amount the party drew in.

So the questions to you are – do you think that it would be something that YOU would attend? Would you have a party such as this? Do you have suggestions to add to the party idea? We’re very excited to hear from you and would love your input. We’re thinking that it would be great to get this started sometime in late October. We could make it a great opportunity for the Christmas Season.

Thanks in advance for you opinion and ideas.
Christopher and David

And Lastly – if you mention this blog in your order we’ll give you an extra 15% off your entire order.

LadyBug Shop - A unique collection of ladybug gifts & much more!#links#links

LadyBug Shop - A unique collection of ladybug gifts & much more!#links#links

Hello from the Ladybug Shop.

So it’s been a few months since the retail space of the Ladybug Shop closed. Since then, we have been really concentrating on making the online store and our service to our customers that much better. Granted it has been a bit of a challenge with the US Postal Service, FedEx and UPS but we’re getting there. Just a little FYI – they thought that we had moved or closed down completely, so many of our vendor orders were returned and our mail stopped. But finally we’re getting things back to normal.
One of the other things that we’ve attacked is the over flow of stock and the items that have been discontinued by many of our vendors. Which means that the “Special Sale” tab on the website has grown by leap and bounds, when you get a moment – check it out and the prices along with – we have really marked down a great deal.

As we continue to push this stock out the door we are doing our best to find new and interesting Ladybug – Turtle and Frog items to offer. Slowlu but surely we’re getting there. THANK YOU – for your understanding.
With these changes, David is continuing to be creative and add his artistic talents to some of the items in stock. An example would be the new red ladybug canvas bags. He has painted a yellow sunflower on the bag with a cute ladybug front and center. Christopher is continuing to enjoy searching for new Ladybug – Turtle and Frog photos to share on Facebook and Twitter. He has also decided to start a group on Linkedin “Ladybug Lovers”. If you’re interested feel free to look him up.

As always – continue to look for our posts on the above sites, and our online newsletters and E-Blasts.
Thank you for catching the bug !!!

Be lucky ~
Christopher and David
