I Miss The St. Patrick's Day on QVC From Years Past

I just got my St. Paddy's day email from the Q and looked at all the items.  Right now they are showing about a dozen new items most high end jewelry.  There are a few pretty sweaters but my drawers are awash in Irish sweaters (love all of them).  Really not sure what I am looking for but I just remember years ago watching as much of the show as I could and finding a lot to buy.  They used to sell Eamon glass which was reasonablly priced and had great Irish designs.  I still have a set of wine glasses with the claddagh and highball glasses with shamrocks.  Again, I would love to buy glassware for my home or for gifts but nothing affordable

 

Does anyone else feel the same?   Perhaps I am just shopped out.

I agree. I miss the old QVC across the board:

Indigo Moon

Peterboro Baskets

Fenton glass

Polish pottery

 George Simonton 

I could go on and on.

It is great to see more gold jewelry, and I believe there is an attempt to diversify the programming. But enough beauty

 

products, purses and beds.

Just mho, enjoy Saint Patrick's day!

I have been ordering from Peterboro since they left the Q. I just ordered the cutest Easter basket, it comes in several color options, and, they usually always have a coupon code.

I didn't see much either.

 

I want to catch the presentation of the Belleek Neptune items. The pictures are hard to tell the sculpturing. I know they are from the archives, but I've never seen them.

I love love love Irish Days and still get that little spark of anticipation when i look at the items.  I know I could have bought it early.... but I'm still contemplating the Waterford Crystal and Cannamarble marble TSV, it's stunning...  still looking forward to how many hours they'll give us....

I sure miss the Irish days on QVC from  years past when thy offered silver jewery at affordable prices and a variety of Irish items.  Regarding Eamon glassware, I'm not sure if this company is still in business. However you can find many of their glass pieces on Ebay and Replacements .com

Re: I Miss The St. Patrick's Day on QVC From Years Past

I used to take a vacation day on St. Patrick's day just to watch QVC for Irish items.  Years, and years ago - they made a huge deal of it.  Complete with set changes, keeping all the vendors in the "pub" area of the set, live music, lot's of film from Ireland.

 

It was just a lot of fun, but times change ...

 

What happened to the Boyne Valley Weavers?
