DeDe - sorry if this is too late, but my 'puter is named Lazarus for
a good reason!
When things go this bad, I’d hit the mailing lists. Send out an
email notice of a ‘Blackout sale’ with xyz% discount for the next X
days only. Mail plain postcards (cut from cheap cardstock if you
can’t afford the fancy prepunched ones) with the same info to your
snail mail list. Hit up your best stores for a few blitz trunk shows
featuring ‘their favorite artist’ (you, of course). Get your Mom (or
Sister, or Sister-In-Law, etc.) to have a home party and promise her
a nice credit based on SALES.
Good luck and hope your hangover isn’t tooooo bad, Donna Hawk Dallas,
