We are officially in the swing of summer, and that means fun, fun, and more fun. To keep up with the theme, we at hART Sense Design have a couple of fun things in the works for the months of July and August.
For most, summer is synonymous with the harvest time. In keeping with the theme of harvesting, during the month of July, instead of the tired Christmas in July, hART Sense Design is offering customers an opportunity to harvest a 30% discount throughout our shop. Discount applies even to discontinued styles, which means you will be receiving wholesale and in some instances even below wholesale prices on your purchases. Just make sure to enter coupon code SUMMER2016 at checkout to harvest your discount. This is a very limited time offer which will expire at midnight MST on July 31st, so make sure to take advantage of it while it lasts.
In the month of August, we have a celebration and a fun contest planned. Having reached 2,000 followers on Pinterest earlier this summer, we have decided to do a fun Pinterest contest in August. Full details will be announced both here on the blog and on Pinterest on August 1st, so if you are not following us yet, better hurry! Only our Pinterest followers will be eligible to participate in the contest. For now, just to whet your appetite, we can disclose that the contest winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to our shop, and two runners-up will receive a $25 gift certificate each.
Have a fun summer, and don't forget to stop by hART Sense Design in July and August!
Year end festivities have come and gone, and it seems like everyone is posting recaps of 2015, from best of this and worst of that to most important this and newest that. Of course, I couldn't resist the urge to jump on the bandwagon, so here you have it: hART Sense Design most popular pins of 2015.
The first list showcases overall best performing pins from our Pinterest account. It is interesting that, out of the 5 pins, three come from interior design & decorating boards and only one from a fashion related board. Does that mean we should abandon our accessories based business and get in on something interior design related? Hmmm! Food for thought...
And, as I mention food, although every self-proclaimed Pinterest expert will tell you that food related pins are the best performing ones in the whole Pinterestdom, take it with a grain of salt. Not a single one of our food related pins made the top 5, and we have four different food related boards. Live and learn!
So, fanfare please! The five best performing pins found on hART Sense Design account in 2015 were:
1. San Antonio Rustic Hutch from the Western Style Home Decor board;
2. Breakfast Nook in a Small Cottage Kitchen from the Cottage Style Home Decor board;
3. Rustic Wedding Sign for a Country Wedding from the board titled Cowgirl's Gettin' Hitched;
4. The Lewis Expedition Bag from the Chic Cowgirl Fashions board, and
5. Christmas Decorations from Recycled Materials from the Cowgirl Christmas board.
As for the most popular pins from our website, interestingly enough, most of them came from our blog. Looks like you, our blog readers, are great pinners, too. Only one of the top five pins came directly from our shop.
So, here are the top five:
1. Announcement for our Leather Hill collection of jewelry designs incorporating leather, which was released in the fall of 2015;
2. Blog post about Moda Vaquera or, if you don't speak Spanish, the Latina version of cowgirl chic;
3. Our basket style copper hoop earrings with gemstones, the only pin from our shop that made the cut;
4. Blog post with Last Minute Gift Ideas featuring jewelry by hART Sense Design, and finally,
5. Mothers' Day fan necklace gift ideas, which is one of our older pins, but apparently pinners love their moms a lot.
Although it is always fun to look at the year we just wrapped up and analyze trends, successes, and failures, January is also a good time to look ahead to the new endeavors in the year that is just beginning. With that in mind, I cannot end this post without letting you know about the Boho Chic Cowgirl Club (BCC Club for short) by hART Sense Design. Grand opening is slated for mid-January, and we are all excited about the things club members will be privy to. If you are interested in finding out more and applying for free membership in the Club, please click on the link above or on the tab in the navigation bar titled BCC Club. Hope to see you there, and here is to a great year ahead!
If you were a BCC Club member, what exclusive features and special offerings would you like to see presented to the members? Tell us in the comments below.
