Which Dropped or Discontinued Brands Do You Miss?
HSN obviously has to keep up with changing tastes in the marketplace and offer new things to attract younger shoppers (i.e., Snooki’s perfume, Nicki Minaj’s Special Event). Remember Mariah Carey’s shoe line? Scassi’s jewelry? The Gastineau Girls line of jewelry? The Kardashians attempt at a wearable clothing line? LOL. The brands I miss most are Terry Lewis leathers, Suzanne Somers seasonings and diet food offerings, and Storybook Knits. The spices and food blends from Suzanne Somers aren’t even offered on her website anymore. 🙁 Storybook Knits offered holiday sweaters you couldn’t find anywhere other than Aspen, CO…and such sweaters run 4x more expensive in Aspen. Does anyone else miss some former brands?
Perlier chocolate scented lotions. The brand is still on HSN, just not as often. Elaria, Harry London chocolates, Suzanne Sommers clothing and jewerly. I really miss Lisa Stock of Serious SkinCare. She started the company and just kinda went away. Lisa reminded me of Andrew Lessman, the way she had so much knowledge about the product that she went on and on.;) Christopher Radkos ornaments…..So many!!!!
I’d say Carolyn Strauss and somewhat Maggie Sweet. I actually wore one of Carolyn Strauss’s black pants yesterday and loved their fit and cut. I got them on sale a few years ago and they look as new as the day I got them.
COLIN COWIE hands down especially this time of the year. The Christmas trees on HSN’s stage just doesn’t look the same. There’s nothing beautiful or incentive to go out and buy what they see on air. It just looks like a regular department store tree with no nothing to it.
Does anybody have any ideas about where to buy beautiful Christmas trees and ideas for decorations? I did see some beautiful trees and decorations on QVC but it’s not the same state-of-the-art decorations as HSN always had. I’m new to QVC because Colin is not here and they do have some very nice home decorations. I miss Colin so much.
Would love your ideas!!!
Hello, jcart! Im steve How are you? Nice to see you.
Thanks for the reminder Cindy. Jcart if you could PM me with that address and I guess only if it’s in Colo also. Thanks.
Share .coms on the PM’s…not on the forum…against guidelines. :smileywink:
Yeah Josh, we had flooding…lots of it…there was a lot of flooding, and tornados with all the storms all over the state. It was a mess for quite a while. If you do go back into the old threads…the last couple, you’ll get caught up.
Glad to hear the new job is going well. You are doing good work. Seniors have so much to navigate thru and the families have no idea what is out there to help them. Good for you! Thank you for helping.
The new games are really set up for Chrome…the seem to play better on there. Internet Explorer is still able to play them but IE is getting phased out and HSN is suggesting that you play on Chrome. Make sure you delete your cache and cookies too. Don’t use an old bookmark either…anything Pre-arcade change. And if you’re on a tablet…there are still people having issues. Laptop or desktop seems to be working the best.
Come back more often. It’s great to see you! Lots of people would like to meet you…I would like to see you more often!
Hi Jcart. I’m Susana from Colo.
This PACE program you work for, are they in Colo? We may be in need of ill senior help soon. Just give me some generalizations or .com address. I know you don’t want to spend your time here talking about work! Thanks.
Hi Josh, Nice to meet you :smileyhappy:
Wow, it HAS been a while since I have checked in. Yes, I am working in the new job and it is going pretty well. I miss the fast pace nature of the ER, but definitely feel like I am making much more of an impact in my new role. I work for with seniors and their families, who are looking for medical services, housing, and care giving. We are a PACE Program, basically an all inclusive care program for seniors. It is a wonderful program and it never ceases to amaze me how stressful and difficult it is for people to navigate the waters around establishing care for senior citizens. People are always so relieved to know that we will handle all of their needs and that there is only one cost for the program (no matter their acuity).
Anyway, enough about work. Glad to hear you guys are getting some well deserved rain. A whole year’s worth in 3 weeks…that must have been out of control. Especially after being dry for so long, I imagine there were some flooding incidents due to poor absorption (Any flash flooding?).
That’s great that the thread is continuing to grow and change. It really is a neat place to come and share and communicate in a safe and positive manner (so rare on the intenet these days). I do see many familiar faces as I look back on the threads. I will have to take some time to read back and see what has been going on. Also, I will have to see what’s going on over on your jewelry thread.
Looks like it’s about time to fix dinner. I was playing games, but all of the sudden they just stopped working about an hour ago. They just won’t load. The Arkadium logo comes up and just stops there. The serers must need a little break. Are you able to get on?
Talk to you soon!
HELLO JOSH!!!!!!!! Nice to see you and hear from you! I wondered what happened to you…Last we heard from you, you changed jobs.
Yes, our drought broke in May. Got a whole year’s worth of rain in 3 weeks! Thought we were going to need an Ark there for a while and we’re still getting some rain here and there. But our lakes are full, our water restrictions are over and we’re VERY grateful.
We have several new people here…including some new men…Mr B is coming and going…he’s got a couple new teenagers he’s raising that are keeping him running…
And I opened a new Jewelry Thread too…some of the new people here are there too…and then just some wonderful new people here that I am so glad that joined us! We keep going like the Energizer Bunny!
Hope that you are well…I hope that you’ll be back soon and tell me what you’ve been up too…sorry that you’re getting so much heat up there…welcome to MY summer. Actually, most of ours!
Come back soon! Love to hear from you!
I miss Randolph Duke&Terry Lewis,
