What has happened to HSN?
I use to love HSN and watched all day every day. Thought they were so much
better than QVC. Thought they had classier hosts and products. All of a
sudden it seems all they sell is junk AND the same junk over and over.
Just noticed they are doing Christmas in July and everything seems so cheap
and junky. The prices for what they are selling are ridiculous. I wouldn’t
even buy them if they were half the price because they look so cheap.
Anything, I guess to make a dollar!
I am SO SICK of nothing being manufactured in the USA. If HSN & QVC (under the same umbrella corporation ), they are selling THOUSANDS & THOUSANDS of orders from all over the country. With such a high order why can’t these shopping networks make these clothes and other items in a USA manufacturing plant. Do they realize how many people are out of work??? And don’t tell me that there are not enough AMERICANS who can sew, mass produce, etc. It’s ALL ABOUT THE GREED & THE ALMIGHTY $$$.
One more thing, why doesn’t HSN have FREE EXCHANGES like QVC???
I’m going to stop buying until they both get their greedy prices down & start making in the USA!
Peace to all, stay safe!
Hi Cynthialbbw, thank you for your post, it’s spot on, I completely agree with you. Please keep voicing your opinions.
Have a lovely day, stay safe, and God Bless.
Thank you. It’s just the truth and pretty obvious by itself, but I have also watched Dragons Den, a very long running tv programme in the UK, where investors with loads of money listen to pitches by people wanting investments for their own products and businesses. Sara Davies of Crafter’s Companion is the newest and youngest dragon. It’s not just her, though, it is all of the dragons telling people they have to get their manufacturing costs down, and the Far East as they like to call it is the recommended place to go for their manufacturing. I have watched it a lot, and I have never heard them ever at any time mention anything but the Far East. I remember the earlier days of CC before I came to the US and before CC had even started making dies. They are now mostly a die company, but back then they were selling rubber stamps, not clear stamps, unmounted rubber stamps, and Sara Davies would be on create and craft tv saying that she’d phoned her company to turn on the equipment and make more rubber stamps. It was all done in the UK back then and so was everything else they were making. How sad that things have changed so much, and I just heard her say a couple of days ago that they have been taking on more and more staff, illustrators, engineers, everyone they need to make more and more products. Doing the manufacturing in the UK again would be a real help to the people in northeast England where they are based. I wonder if any of the many people with companies manufacturing their products in China have ever stopped to think about what a difference it could make to local employment, or if all they ever think about is their own profit margin.
I don’t think anything is going to stop all of the manufacturing being done in China short of making it illegal for companies outside China to have their manufacturing done there. It’s got so big and out of control. If all of the deaths caused by the coronavirus weren’t enough to do anything more than temporarily halt production for products by Anna Griffin and Crafter’s Companion, for example, what is going to stop them – will bubonic plague be enough? It’s all about spending the least amount of money and making the most money possible for those companies. If they cared about anything more than that, they would be more responsible to the people in their own countries and provide them the jobs for fair pay. I am disgusted with my fellow Brits who started out manufacturing in the UK and then moved that to China, Crafter’s Companion being one of the worst offenders, but they are worth at least £35 million, and that was a few years ago.
Hi kramer2011, all products on HSN and QVC are from China – maybe with very few exceptions.
We can’t financially support anything coming from China – at least at this time. Not just because the quality is shamefully poor, but for the health risks.
Take a look back at the viruses that came from there, it’s been consistent, and now the world is forced to cope with the killing Coronavirus Pandemic.
Only a few days ago reports were officially confirmed of a Bubonic plague outbreak in inner Mongolia China !
I pray for the good people of China who can’t get out from under the extremely cruel and oppressive rule. What they do to children and animal is completely unGodly, abhorrent.
When a country(s) trades bullets and bombs for killing virus pandemics, it’s time for all of us to take action, and that’s ending financial support – don’t buy ANYTHING from China.
Voicing our demands where possible, and writing letters for reform seems a small ineffectual thing to do, but it can and does make a difference – and of course prayer. We can’t let the deranged power obsessed ruin Earth and kills the people.
