And today...it's cleaning cloths repurposed as......magical face cloths!!!

 

FIVE set of them no less....so you can wash your face in the car, the public rest room, the gym, in church, at the store....where ever you need to shmeer off your gloppy makeup in one full swoop!!!!!

 

Sheeeeesh. ANOTHER gimmick that we'll see for the next few weeks on all the Q channels at once....between the endless BOSE nonsense, the fryers, the snippers, and the Temptations Crack-ware in various sizes and shpes, all with gift boxes.

 

O. And don't forget 500 iterations of "cabin socks" ( for people who wouldn't set foot in a real  "cabin" today...can't paint the walls dentist office gray with unimaginative white trim in a cabin!!!!)...

 

Ear buds, BOLT chargers, flashlight sets, security systems, lightbulbs that last 100 years as long as they only come on in a power failure....and vacuums.

 

My only concern is....WHERE did the My Pillows, the Sleep Number Beds and the puffing, breathing steamers of yesteryear go? Seems like only last year it was beds beds beds steamers steamers and electric smokers ( with the Aw-shucks Guy)...

 

At least we can all be happy the the set of four shears in different colors are still here to save the day!!!! MC snipping away...so many clamshell packages, so little time.



 

@Othereeeen   Your posts are hysterical!!!

I agree the "gifts" are so boring.  Also I find it disappointing that every day until the end of the year will be all about Christmas gifts. As if nobody has anything else on their mind.  A little obsessive IMO.  I don't even care about Christmas and plenty of other folks don't either.  I can see it being sometimes (or a lot) about gifts but all day and night on 5 channels is too much.

I can't find ANYTHING of interest on QVC lately!!!

I say this every year so I won't disappoint you by giving up the traditon...

 

(Going to shout, so prepare yourselves.)

 

I WOULD BE MORE LIKELY TO SHOP FOR CHRISTMAS GIFTS FROM REGULAR PROGRAMMING THAN FROM CONTRIVED JUNK SHOWS!!!

 

My apologies; I'm sure they won't hear me.

Re: So bored with QVC and boring, repetitive selections........

When I saw the Bolt thing last night on Down Home with David I was:

 

TALKING TO THE TELEVISION SET (using words I cannot repeat here).

 

QVC programming is the WORST, in my opinion, than it's ever been.

 

(Although it's hard to remember because last year it was non stop sleep number beds, my pillow, flashlights, steamers steamers steamers puffing and breathing ( one for every room!!!! A mold nightmare waiting to happen!!!), Philosophy everything,  duraflame heaters, electric smokers ( with theAw-Shucks guy and his Dad Gum hype), Turkey fryers that used 100 gallons of motor oil ( or leftover WEN if you have no oil) and of course, the ONLY survivor from years gone by:

 

Mark CHarles with his snips in four colors!!!!!

 

 

Better enjoy this year. Next year I predict, IF QVC is still on air, it will be 100% electronic garbage( of course, Mark Charles might have E-Snips by then, with built in flashlight and charger for your 29 phones).

 

And, we will all be here,  yearning for ( see paragraph above).

WOW even Mary Beth has seen the light....she was presenting cuddl duds and she admitted on air about the BLACK FRIDAY SALE PRICE, "I know that there's a savings of only $5..." BUT she quickly recovered and went into "sales mode" by adding....but the Easy Pay is $5.50 .......

This is one reason I look for other good shows on TV like Movies and Sitcoms Smiley Happy  I rarely even watch the Shopping Networks at all.

@SandySparkles  You are not alone SS Smiley Happy.

I still enjoying watching QVC too, whenever I have the time. And it's still often background noise in my house even if I am not actively watching.

Then in January we will see Marie Osmond, etc. with all the diet plans, exercise equipment, "make yourself better and more healthy.  Those shows get very tiresome too.
