View Full Version : Elves & Angels Co-op

03-11-2005, 01:06 PM
If you are interested in buying any of the following kitchen pieces, please reply to this thread with 1) The pieces you want and 2) how you will be paying for them. I will give you all about 1 week (+/_) to see whether we reach the 25 piece minimum to qualify for the discount. So, please try to respond by next Friday (3/18). I will then collect your addresses if meet the minimum requirement.

First, let me mention that E&A is now only selling directly for wholesale customers. All retail sales are now handled through their partner, Nova Natural (novanatural.com), which is where my contact is. So, the "deal" we have is more usefully compared with Nova Natural's prices than the prices at the E&A site. Also, although I added the other, non-kitchen pieces to my email to him, he hasn't included them in his response to me. It looks like he is not offering those at a discount I sent an email double-checking this and to confirm that the 12% discount is included in the prices he sent below. I am waiting to hear back from him.

Please find the new pricing for each of the items below. Some of the
items will be available in April (they are *-ed), the other will be available in June or July. Items not on the list will not be available this year.

These prices are PRE-DISCOUNT

price ship total
Julianna 179 20 199
*Victoria 269 30 299
*Lucy 189 20 209
Papa 159 20 179

*Suzanne 239 30 269
Suzanne Ex 249 30 279
Seri Sink 109 20 129
Seri Stove 109 20 129

We can give you a 12% discount on an order of 25+ pieces. We can add 3% to the discount if it is pre-paid by money order.

With 15% Discount:
Julianna 152.15 + 20
Victoria 243.15 + 30
Lucy 162.15 + 20
Papa 132.52 + 20
Jacob 117.15 + 20
Suzanne 212.15 + 30
Suzanne Ex 222.15 + 30
Seri Sink 82.15 +20
Seri Stove 82.15 +20

With 12% Discount
Julianna 157.52
Victoria 247.52 + 30
Lucy $167.52 + 20
Papa 137.52 + 20
Jacob 122.52 + 20
Suzanne 217.52 + 30
Suzanne Ex 227.52 + 30
Seri Sink 87.52 + 20
Seri Stove 87.52 + 20

By the way, Lucy's Kitchen is similar to Julianna's Kitchen except it
has 2 shelves and an oven door. You can see it on our website.

Let me know what you would like to do. If you would like to go ahead,
please send me a spreadsheet with each person's address, pieces they
would like, and how they will be paid for.

Where is everybody on this Co-Op? Should we plug a reminder in the Around the House folder? oh - I really hope this goes through - I've been dreaming about my little lucy kitchen!


03-16-2005, 09:16 AM
I'm still deciding! ;)
I'm leaning toward Victoria's kitchen and Jacob's icebox, and will post when I make up my mind.

Hope we get enough orders!

ETA: If this goes through, we'll definitely get those two. Not sure yet about method of payment.

Is Prisiclla's kitchen also included in the coop?
I am trying to decided between it and Lucy's kitchen.


03-17-2005, 02:54 PM
Hi there, you can find a list of all the items that are included my post in this thread. I don't see pricilla's kitchen so that means it is not available to order :(

03-18-2005, 12:47 AM
Hi all, I just wanted to see if there are others who are interested and yet have not responded. I thought we'd have more committed from our previous thread. We still need to reach the minimum of 25 pieces for this discount to happen. If you are still interested please respond to this thread with which pieces and the the form of payment. Thanks so much :)

Would it be okay to post a reminder in the Around the House forum? Not sure if this goes against any coop rules.


03-18-2005, 08:58 AM
We're still in!! I was just waiting to make sure which kitchen I wanted. I hope more people make their selection today so we can put the co-op through.

-Lucy's kitchen
-Money order (most likely)

Sadly, I am out. I will get this for her next year. Let me know if there are just 24 and you need one more person. I may be convinced to buy ahead.
thanks jec for organizing. you are a sweetheart!

I've decided not to buy a kitchen. I just can't justify spending $270 for a kitchen right now. The only kitchen I wanted was Victoria's kitchen, and with the price increase, the final price is higher than it used to be without a discount.
I really appreciate the work you've done on the co-op. I would have loved to buy one. Unofortunately, the only kitchen that's not too girly looking for my tastes is the Victoria, and the new prices are out of my price range.

We have had a series of unfortunate events this week- busted water heater that HAD to break on Sunday, queen wasps vacationing in our attic, a busted heating unit AND preschool difficulties which required me to leave a deposit for a spot at another school so we are now registered for 2 places for the fall. All of this has burned a rather large hole through my wallet. :( It has also motivated DH to start working on his hobby of wood working again. Thanks for organizing this and I am sorry we can't participate.

03-18-2005, 11:08 PM
Sorry, like others, I had hoped to be able to do this. But the car konked out on Wednesday to the tune of several hundred dollars, and our budget is busted. Thank you for all your efforts --

So, it looks like we are nowhere near hitting the 25 item mark. I'm thinking I will just go ahead and order on my own since I'm anxious to get Mia her kitchen in the next month or so. Let me know if anyone has reason to think we will somehow drum up enough interest in the next few weeks - I'll wait another couple of days to order.

Thanks. And thanks again Juliet for trying to get this going - I wish we could have gotten enough people interested.

Holly, that is sort of what it is looking like. I am disappointed this hasn't worked out better. I haven't called it off yet because I am tied up with other things right now, but I will try and post a "last call" before I call it quits. sorry :(

03-21-2005, 08:25 PM

Thanks so much for organizing and trying on this coop...I'm sad that it looks like we won't get enough people.

Maybe after last call, see if E&A have any interest in offering us something for our 5ish orders? :)

oh well, again - thank you so much for working on this!

03-21-2005, 11:45 PM
I just wanted to say thanks again for all the work you did on this. I'm bummed they raised their prices, because I would have bought one at the old prices.

Hi, I just posted a Last Call in the Around the House forum. We'll see.

sorry for the delay with follow-up too. We have been in the middle of a move and the end of the quarter chaos with grading and stuff so I have been online very little.
