I have any good business sense, I got it from my grandmother who
managed to run a small jewelry store with military precision for
over 50 years (and prosper) in a mill town in Vermont, which saw
all other businesses, large and small, come and go with the various
times. Her secret was clubs. When I designed the Early American Doll
Series (now long discontinued), I had originally figured it as a
complete set of things including a doll and all her clothes, furniture
and accessories. Then I feared that people couldn't afford it, but
it came to me that one of my grandmother's clubs would work. Clubs
are presented in an affordable format and is a fun way to collect
with a surprise to look forward to each month and in the end you
will own a wonderful collection for yourself or for the future. And
so my clubs began - this was in 1986 - and over the years I have
had many clubs for different doll series and also custom clubs for
those who wish to pick and choose what is in their clubs from all
the items I design and sell.
At this time my only "standard" clubs are clubs for Hitty, but
a Custom Club can be set up to contain any items from my website
as long as they meet a minimum requirement. Read below or read more under Hitty Clubs in the Hitty menu.
Clubs represent a commitment. I get to have your business for 12
(some clubs up to 16) months, which I provide for you at at discount,
and you commit to those months of payments. It is an unspoken contract.
All clubs begin with the first payment being a deposit which is held
in good faith until the end when it becomes your last payment. If
you should drop out of the club, you will lose this deposit. If you
are continuing on with more clubs, this deposit can move ahead of
you to the next club.
CLUB INCENTIVES ~ Anytime
you join a club or continue on with another club, you will receive
a coupon with a discount toward other purchases.
