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

I also agree. Looked so forward to the 24 hours. We don't even get that anymore. No music, no pub, so many of the original vendors are no longer there. I used to buy many items every March 17th, not so anymore. Only 1 Inis product. The Q is where I discovered this lovely fragrance and wear it often. I have been able to find it locally but still....

 

I long for the good old days. And don't anyone say I need to move into the 21st century. I have in many, many ways, but the past St Partrick's Day celebrations and products on the Q had me buying more, watching more and enjoying more. (sigh)

I usually tune in to see at least some of it, but this year I was busy all day and didn't have a chance to catch any of it.

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?


 

 

 

IN the past there were a lot more Irish items then they currently have but I was never a big fan of the "faux" pub set with people sitting around pretending to be having a beer and a jolly good time while the host sold stuff.  It always seem so stilted and forced to me just like other pretend party events that QVC has hosted over the years.

I wished they'd bring in more Beleek with the shamrock design, especially the "everyday" plates, bowls, etc.

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

What has happened to the QVC that I used to love? The St Patrick’s Day celebration in such a joke. Obviously costs were cut and it is just no fun any more. I am so tired of seeing shoes, shoes and more shoes...LOGO wear every day and beauty products. Each better tan the one before.  No to mention the pre-recorded programs. It’s St Patrick’s Day, people! For heavens sake!

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

I used to love the all-day St. Patrick's Day and Rose of Tralee programming.

 

However, I do believe that there should be an expansion of products available. I've read many suggestions on these forums as to Irish-oriented items that could be offered. This would bring in more income (and isn't that the point?).

 

QVC should get busy on this ASAP!
