I just received a call from my Jan at Delectable Mountain Cloth who is trying to save one of her most treasured suppliers whose business has been devastated from the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy.
Attention, my wonderful customers - We have just learned that our most important and valued supplier of cloth has been severely affected by Hurricane Sandy. Their business has been interrupted to the point that, unless they receive an advance for their next purchase, they might not be able to survive. If they don't survive, we don't survive.
We need to raise some serious cash and fast and the way we do that is by having a sale. Deep discounts on all cloth in the store. Feel free to spread the word because we need to act quickly.If you buy some fabric, then we can buy some fabric, then they can buy some fabric. Come and take advantage of huge discounts throughout the store!
I've written about Delectable Mountain before here and here. Thank you everyone!
