Today’s date is 1/3/13 … so I’m giving 13% discount to members of my F Club (Friends/Fans/Followers). Just use code 1313 at checkout or in-store. (Discount doesn’t apply to magazines or Lucky Dip items.) www.treasurebin.com
I am, however, working shorter hours throughout January (11am to 5pm, Tue-Sat) and taking Mondays off. This will partly be to get just a little extra time off, but will mostly be spent uploading even more goodies on the website, tidying up the shop, and general spring-cleaning of the business and my life!!!
In order to make room for all these new goodies, we’ve now launched our wonderful January sale with 20% off most products (except the Lucky Dip items) but, as a subscriber to this newsletter (or follower on Facebook/Twitter/blog) YOU can get 25% off by using coupon code 25F13 at checkout. Or you can get 50% off Christmas items by using code 13Xmas50. If you’d like half-price Christmas items AND 25% off other items, you can do 2 separate orders with the relevant code per order, and mention in the comments box that you’re placing a second order. I will then combine postage and refund any difference.
Wishing all the best for you and yours in 2013.
Tomorrow is a special day … no, nothing to do with the Mayans. Some people may think the end of the Mayan calendar means the end of the world, personally I think it just means it’s time for a new calendar! But tomorrow does mark the end of our 2 competitions for the under-12s so they’d better hurry and get those jokes & pictures in.
It’s the last special date of the century - 20/12/2012 - and our 12/12/12 discount was so popular that we’re doing it again. So, starting at midnight tonight, you get 20% off when you use code TWENTY12 on our website and we’ll also be offering 20% off most items in our shop. Enjoy!
This is a very important day for 2 reasons.
Firstly, there is the once-in-a-century occurrence of this special date: 12/12/12. Treasure Bin is celebrating in-store and online with a discount of …. you guessed it, 12% ! To avail of this discount on our website, just use coupon code TWELVE12 at checkout.
Secondly, we are launching our annual 12 Days of Christmas competition. For the next 12 days on Facebook we’ll set a different task and the winner will get a small prize (which you can either collect from the shop or have posted to you).
But, in case we’re not spoiling you enough, my nieces have insisted on a competition (or two!) for children, which they will be judging. Check our Facebook events page for details.
Halloween’s a-coming! In this corner of Ireland, the celebrations tend to extend over a couple of weeks because it’s a Bank Holiday in Donegal (and the rest of Eire) on the last Monday of October but in Northern Ireland (and the rest of the UK) it’s the first Monday of November. A great excuse for two weekends of partying!
Treasure Bin is joining in the fun this year by encouraging our customers to dress up on Saturday, 27 October. Anyone showing up in costume at our Letterkenny shop will get a 10% discount on their purchase - and maybe a wee pressie for the wains (translation: a little gift for the children).
Be warned, half-hearted attempts will be met with half a discount … or less! But if the judge (i.e. me) is seriously impressed, there just might be one or more prizes for the adults as well. Judge’s decision is final.
So, time to get cracking on that costume now!!!
Our sale is almost over - it ends today (Saturday) in our Letterkenny shop and online tomorrow. So Summer is over and Autumn is here. That means our craft workshops are underway again. Next week we start knitting and I’ll also be showing how to knit with wire and beads to make unusual jewellery. Full schedule and booking form here. I also post weekly projects on our Facebook page so be sure to follow for lots of crafty tips and pics.
Ssshhhh! As a member of our F Club (Friends, Fans and Followers of Treasure Bin), you’re getting advance information on our summer sale.
Treasure Bin first opened its doors on 15 August 1998. Every year we celebrate our anniversary with a sale to spread the joy! This year the sale will run from 19 August to 1 September and I’ll post again before that with full details of the discounts, coupon code for EXTRA discounts, etc. You can also check our Facebook page and Twitter for ongoing information. Remember - only the F Club is getting this advance information so mum’s the word!
You might be feeling a little down about Friday 13th. So let Treasure Bin cheer you up by offering FREE delivery within Ireland/Northern Ireland on orders placed (and paid for) today. International customers will only be asked to pay delivery charges exceeding 5 Euro (eg, if delivery costs 8 Euro, you’ll be asked to pay 3 Euro).
Use Redeem Code FRY13 at checkout. Today only!
There’s no minimum order requirement.
This offer doesn’t apply if you only order from the Lucky Dip category, because those items are sold for charity.
Orders completed before 3pm today will be sent today. Later orders will be sent on Monday.
Treasure Bin got an overhaul a couple of months ago so if you haven’t visited in a while, have a look around and see what you think.
So this weekend is St Patrick’s Day AND Mother’s Day. That deserves some celebrating, so Treasure Bin is offering you a choice of EITHER 10% discount on orders placed online over the weekend, OR free postage within Ireland (RoI and NI). And if you think you’ve left it too late to get your mother a present, don’t forget that you can buy virtual gift vouchers from our website (the amount is kept online for the recipient to use as and when they like). And we’re not stopping you from buying a voucher for your Dad as well … or anyone else you love!
To get 10% off, use coupon code MamPad at checkout.
To get free postage within Ireland, use coupon code FREEP at checkout.
The discount is valid 17-19 March on all items except the Lucky Dip category, where items are sold for charity. It’s only valid on the website, but you can place your order online and collect from our Letterkenny shop. We’re closed on Saturday but will be open on Monday 1-5pm (or thereabouts, depending on demand!)
If you have any problems using the code, or have any queries, email us.
In our March newsletter, I mentioned that I’d placed several orders at the Craft Hobby & Stitch show. These have now finally started arriving so we have a nice range of books for learning how to sew, knit or crochet and I got a good selection of Payper Box cardstock. I’ve implemented a scheme whereby you can get a €1 rebate for the larger Payper Box wallets in new condition (or €1 discount if you’re refilling your own wallet). This is proving very popular with our customers so I’ll keep doing that for as long as possible, in the face of constantly rising prices! I’m expecting delivery of Hunkydory card kits, Debbi Moore CDs and some needle-felting kits next week. In the coming weeks, I hope to get Sugarblossom moulds, self-adhesive crystals and other craft kits.
