Because Who Doesn’t Love Free Stuff?



Hi Amy:
Someone recently posted a link to our website Three Chickadees in reply to one of your posts on I must admit I hadn’t heard of the site before, but when I saw all of the hits Three Chickadees was getting from your site, I decided to check it out. I am so glad I did. I enjoy reading your column, and the fun and interesting advice that it brings. I also wanted to offer your readers our free shipping promotion since so many have visited our site in the past few days. We are offering free first class shipping on all retail orders placed from now through November 15, 2006. All your readers have to do to receive free first class shipping is enter the discount code “freeship” when checking out.
In case you’ve never heard of our company, Three Chickadees is a women’s accessories site which is owned by myself and two very good friends. About 18 months ago, we decided to pool the talents we have gained from working at our corporate careers to start Three Chickadees. Since then, Three Chickadees has come a long way, and I am pleased to say it is growing by leaps and bounds. We hand-make all of our products, and are very proud of the quality and selection of products we offer. We still have the day jobs too, and all three of us are working mothers with children ranging in ages from 11-2! As you can imagine it makes for crazy schedules and very long days, but it’s also lots of fun and very satisfying.
Kind regards,

Whee! Thanks Lisa!
(And reader Andrea was right — the ribbon headbands that look like fabric scarves? ADORABLE.)
(I’ve actually been obsessed with head scarves ever since that entry, by the way, and have been wearing them around the house almost daily, trying out all kinds of knots and tricks and tips. I have also re-tied my head scarves approximately forty hundred thousand times, so clearly, I have not yet mastered anything. BUT I LOOK ADORABLE. SO THERE.)

    The link to the Three Chickadees is messed up, Amy. (You don’t have to post this on the entry.)
