Daisy D's Update...

I heard Daisy D's was going to close in August and sent that information out to all of my Scrappin' and Cardmakin' Friends. Sooo I thought I would share this update I just read on Sharon Hodsdon's blog.


Sharon writes...."A while back I reported here about the apparent closing of Daisy D’s. I had spoken to some folks over there to confirm it, which they did, and well, I got this email today that I wanted to share with you all here…. I sincerely hope that someone steps up to the plate and buys this amazing company. I have always loved their paper but, more so, the folks that work for and own the company. Not only are they community oriented, they are avid supporters of those of us who teach. I am forever indebted to the Daisy D’s folks and wish them continued success and a bright future. Please spread the word.

Daisy D’s Update We have had many phone calls from consumers and customers wanting to know what is happening at Daisy D’s? Well here is the scoop from the “horses mouth”…. The first week of August we announced that we are not printing A Village Market and Once Upon A Holiday. We featured these at CHA Summer along with Chloe Marie. If that didn’t stir things up enough, staff members were telling customers we were closing at the end of August. Now it is September 9th and we are still here.

The current owners have decided to not design any new product and try to sell the company. While we are looking for interested parties we are selling the inventory of all the collections that we have produced over the years until they are gone. We are not in a big hurry and hope to find someone who would like to continue on with the daisy d’s name and continue the “daisy d’s” look. If we do not find anyone who is interested in taking over, we will close. For now we are fulfilling our orders and plan on having great sales through the rest of the year and into 2009. If our timeline changes we will update everyone. We appreciate all your support and comments we have received and hope we will have good news to spread in the future. "

If you had a chance to see the new lines "Once Upon A Holiday" and "A Village Market" you too would feel the pain of lost opportunities! These were gorgeous paper lines that were really elegant.

The sale of this company is a great opportunity for someone who wants to break into the Scrapbooking MarketPlace because Daisy D's brand name is so well known and already available in most scrapbook stores.

Spread the word to your Scrapbookin' friends, may be they will become the new owners and continue the fine products we have enjoyed from Daisy D's!!
