When my Dad was alive, he and my stepmother used to LOVE this ....... apparently the easy pays allow seniors on a budget to get a head start on Christmas shopping with easy pay so regular holiday shopping was less "painful".  


 

I don't mean this as an insult, and it obviously doesn't apply to all, but I think the grandparents and the shut-ins (I know that word is not PC, but I don't mean it to be negative) are the target audience today.

Your husband does nice work, Preds! Does he paint them or does that fall on you?

Mine is playing online sudoku monopolizing the couch with Sports Reporter blaring away. He'll leave soon for his pickle ball game -- lol.

Thank you tansy.  No painting.  He uses different types of wood to get the colors needed.  Then just puts a clear coat of sealer on it for a little protection and shine.

It's not my thing (like, times a MILLION!) but they must sell enough stuff to make it profitable.  

 

I don't watch QVC every day, or anywhere near, so I don't really even notice except when I check the 'recently aired' list.  I was surprised to see it happening today, in lieu of later in the month, but oh well.

 

It is amusing how they are able to sell practically anything to some folks.   It's an artform, really.  Smiley Happy

How much you want to bet it's 'new and improved"?

Re: Merry Christmas!! NOT!!!

Good grief.  It is ONE day out of the shopping channel world--and a lot of people love it.  Don't knock it.  Lots of us dislike the stuff YOU love probably!
