Bellefeathers! 15 September 2007


Woo-Hoo! The Bellwether is so pleased to let you know we're all comfy in our new digs at thebellwether.biz!

In thanks of all your patience for my extended move, I have a move-in special! On the new website only, through September 30th, 2007, use the coupon code "move-in-special" and receive 10% off of your items ordered.

Besides merely copying all 94 colors of Cushings to the new digs, I've been getting in new spindles to list -- see all the new Bosworths, Tabacheks, and Natalies! And the exciting, new, Niddy-Pinny in my favorite niddy-noddy size for a one yard skein! Now you'll never be without a nostepinne. Mr. Tabachek has also given me the honor of carrying his newly made Tibetan Spindle -- these are tornados of support spindles. He's also re-filled my nostepinne and niddy-noddy bins.

But wait, there's more! the brand-new all-in-one Needlefelting Project Bag, you can make three dimensional art, pins, wall art -- it's all here, from foam and needles to roving and washed locks, and more besides!

I'm very pleased to now be carrying Goodies Unlimited's E-tomic Balm. It's been a wonderful tonic with all the typing on the new website!

I'm in the process (meaning, the Internet has to propagate it, I did my part now it's up to all those 0's and 1's!) of redirecting www.thebellwether.com to take you to the new website. So, if you have a bookmark and it's not taking you there, give it a day -- but in the meantime, be sure to check out all the new goodies and the new layout at www.thebellwether.biz!

And don't forget to use your coupon (good through September 30th): move-in-special!

I'd love feedback on the new store ... see the comments on this post for a few tips already emailed by helpful early shoppers!

The font size is a bit small ... I'm working on the template to address this, but in the meantime, in most browsers, the reader can increase the font.

use View --> Text Size --> Increase (you may also have a shortcut 'Ctrl-+' that will work)

What happened to camel fluff? or some other product on the old website that isn't showing up on the new one ...

It's possible I still have it in stock. Add a note to the comments, and I will adjust the total and send you a new paypal invoice (please don't pay the first paypal invoice, as then I get hit with the .30 paypal payment fee twice).

Can't I still use my credit card? I don't want to use Paypal ...

You can still use your credit card, without a Paypal account, even if you click "Paypal" ... on their first screen, in the left column, is an inconspicuous link, "Don't have a Paypal account? No problem, continue checkout." Click on that link, and you can enter your information to pay with a credit card, without having a paypal account. It won't automatically make an account for you, either.

However, if you still don't want an account, click "invoice me" as a payment option and I can email an invoice for secure online non-Paypal payment or call you for your card information.

What credit cards do you accept?

Thanks to Paypal, I can accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express ... through Paypal (even if you don't have a paypal account).

If you want me to invoice you, my non-paypal processor only accepts Visa and Mastercard.

I welcome any and all input on pictures that load too slowly (I found a way to address that, but am still rolling it out, so let me know, I may have overlooked a picture or three) and also on typographical errors.

If you have any problems navigating the site or finding things on it, please also let me know. Websites are all about continuous improvement!
