I got an email from VPH stating her last show will be tomorrow with Mary Beth, 10:00 est, 9:00 cst, before the holidays! This is not counting other appearances here & there!

I have been so disappointed this year with her stuff, I have not bought one thing ......... that is very unusual for me!

BTW, I saw some cute little ribbon trees in JCP yesterday that would look adorable with her Gingerbread Houses or any other gingerbread houses!

Her snow branches are nice but something must be wrong with the battery box. Literally my "new" batteries were dim in 3 days! I turned them off now and won't light them again until Christmas Eve.

Thanks for the heads up on the ribbon trees. I'll have to take a look at those. I do need a little something more to go with my gingerbread houses. About how tall are they?

Candlefreaklady, they had different sizes, very cute!

Hooty-I agree--I'm a huge VPH fan--but I haven't "had" to purchase anything during her Christmas shows. I bought a few things for CIJ--and I loved her fall shows--but the Christmas items seem like a repeat or variations of things I already have. Besides- right now I'm on a Temp-tations kick--so I guess it's good I'm not excited by her things right now! Still love to watch her shows for decorating ideas though-I'll be watching tomorrowSmile

So what did you buy today from the show? I was already set by getting the garland in advance (BTW a potential timer problem seems to have been fixed by changing batteries...) but I was very tempted by the snowflake luminaries.

I did purchase the snowflake luminaries. I think they are just what I was looking for to add a little winter decor to the bathroom and with an 8-hour timer, they should make a perfect nightlight.

I watched her show and I adore her. Her and Marybeth work wonderful together. I didn't want the show to end...Smile

I ordered her set of 4 carolers when she was on last Friday. Received them Tuesday evening. They were the most poorly packaged items I've ever seen. Just a flimsy cardboard box. There was one piece of styrofoam covering the tops of the figure's heads. Absolutely no protection for the bodies, whatsoever. Pulled them out of the box and one of the fingers was broken on one of the carolers.

I immediately put them back in the box with the paper stating why they were being returned. Took them to the PO Wednesday morning and sent them back.

I was so disappointed. They were really cute. Valerie needs to do something about the packaging of her items or I'm sure there will be many more returns of her items by customers in the future.

Enjoy those, Marsha! I thought they were adorable.

I enjoyed the show, too, Susan.

ETA--MathisFan--the packaging must vary widely with the different items. The gingerbread family I got was surrounded by lots of plastic wrap and then styrofoam surrounding each figure. The garland was just in paper wrap and cardboard box, but it was in perfect shape. Sorry to hear that about your set.

Hi Valerie: I would really appreciate ANY info you could send me about where I could find the battery operated gingerbread houses that I just purchased on Qvc(one of your recent shows) I love them: I do HolidaY Botiques in my area(San Francisco Bay Area) over the holidays! It is a very small business and I love doing it. I sell battery operated candles and battery operated home decor products> I would appreciate hearing from you about a place where I could get a relatively small number of these houses. Thank you so much, I know you will answer me. Love ALL of your shows, want to see MORE of them. Your gentle nature is very peaceful. Barbara Rothschild--e-mail= everlastmm@aol.com.

I wonder if her November 30 shows will still air--I checked her schedule on askvalerie.com--and it still lists 2 shows that day---I guess we'll have to wait and see..

The email I received said that it was her last show before the holidays for decorating your home. She said that the rest of her shows this year will be for holiday gifts. So don't despair ladies ... I think maybe the original poster just misread the email. It would be easy to do.

In my email reminder from QVC, it said there were two 1 hour shows on the 30th.
