IS HEIDI DAUS GOING TO QVC???
IS HEIDI DAUS GOING TO QVC??? I HOPE NOT. BUT WITH THIS QVC TAKEOVER OF HSN, EVERYTHING IS RE-STRUCTURING AND CHANGING RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES!!!
AND, I WOULD SAY, NOT FOR THE BETTER.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS???
WHY SHOULD HEIDI DAUS STAY HERE AT HSN???
AND, IF HEIDI SHOULD LEAVE, WHY NOT GO TO EVINE AS OPPOSED TO THE Q???
please share. xoxo
There isn’t a QVC Canada. The only shopping channel there is TSC which is not affiliated at all with QVC. It is owned by Rogers Cable. It has vendors there from both HSN (like Heidi) and vendors from QVC.I live in Canada half time and Florida in the winter. I buy Heidi Daus from both TSC and HSN, and both have some things that are not on the other, or some the same but in a different color selection.
gs, you are soo very lucky, my friend!!!
I often browse at the home shopping channel
Canada and they have beautiful items!!!
I always wish for it to open up to usa residents
but then I figure- Canada deserves something special
too. just love it!!! xoxo
Don’t know. However, other vendors have and I can tell you there is a distinct difference between their selling here at HSN vs QVC. One of those vendors is Vince Camuto and I will no longer be purchasing his products the way I used to when they were here. Why?
* Price increase
* Shipping and handling fee
*MAYBE 3 flexpays IF that (you automatically get 3 flexpays IF you use the QVC card).
*Little to no clearance markdown.
For those that are not aware: QVC does NOT mark down items the way HSN does. Clearance at QVC averages $15 max off a product until it sells out; that’s it. There are items still on clearance after 5 YEARS and STILL at the price it was reduced to FIVE years ago. It’s a different place, QVC is.
If Heidi goes to QVC! I will not be able to buy her jewelry anymore. It will be more expensive and rarely on easy pay. I love that Victoria went to Evine. I can actually afford her jewelry again and it is on vale pay a lot.
I’ve seen her on Evine
I take that back. I confused her with Victoria weick.
“Corporate greed” is companies trying to make a profit. I don’t see a problem with that. I never got a job from a poor person. If Heidi Daus wants to go to QVC, I don’t think anyone will mind. I have followed vendors to other places and frequently purchase things from vendors on their own website.
Corporate greed isn’t about a company trying to make a profit,
greed is a selfish need to obtain more than necessary wealth and power at the expense of all else. Good for you that you say you have no problem with greed, your moral compass is your own.
As for your statement that no one will mind following vendors to Qvc, i guess we will just have to wait and see to what degree this greedy takeover affects their bottom line.
But know that there are more than enough of us who will prefer to purchase directly from our favorite vendors than to support this greedy move.
I’m sure we would all follow Heidi or any other vendor we like to whatever platform they sold from. Whatever happens …happens..life changes. As for the commuting argument, I hope it was a joke. A once a month car trip 120 miles is a walk in the park compared to a trip to a New York area airport and a flight to Florida with check ins, luggage restrictions and all the travel nightmares. She’s not on vacation when she goes to Florida, it’s all work. Like anyone with a multimillion dollar company would go wherever they had to in order to conduct business. Yes, I’d miss the ease of dealing with the familar at HSN but honestly, it has not been the same since Mindy Grossman left.
I think it will be poetic justice when the once HSN loyal customer begins to purchase directly from their favorite vendors and other sites
and does not allow QVC’s corporate greed to have succeeded !
i also forgot to mention that jay king seems to still be sticking around hsn.
i think that this is just so that the q can make new contacts- ie. steal jay’s
contacts in the gemstone industry. I’ve seen it happen again and again.
ie. Carolyn Pollack. oh, sigh.. xoxo
Don’t know about Heidi and QVC, but QVC is in other countries, so maybe she wants a larger audience for her jewelry. From what I found out Diane Gilman sells on QVC Italy and UK. So, yes, I can see in end of HSN. I am so sad. I used to shop QVC years ago, then switched to to loss of quality and good host. I love all the HSN hosts.
josey… I don’t really think it matters. Heidi is SO beloved, we’ll follow her anywhere. As for HSN, everything in life changes, it’s inevitable… sad and unnerving… but inevitable. *sigh*
I keep hearing people talk about QVC swallowing up HSN. My understanding was they would both coexist separately under one roof. Has something changed? Maybe I’m jut not hearing what’s going on. I wonder if the vendors who went to the Q did so because they wanted to or if management moved them to improve the quality over there? Who knows, maybe QVC will improve and be more like HSN now.
i hope hidi dosn’t go to the Q or evine. evine is another Q in meaning just like Qvc allmost never gives costumers there easy pays. evine never gives value pays at all and there shipping charges are high! like $8.99 which is why i dont shop evine any more. QVC is the one in trouble not hsn i just hope hsn will be around for years to come.
shunshine… I disagree with your statement about Evine’s Value-pays. I often get 6-Value-pay on their site. If you ask me, they’ve got the BEST easy-pay offerings of ANY online shopping site. Right now, they’ve got 6 Value-pays on virtually all Fashion products.
Aye, Evine’s Shipping is high. But, I can also often find Reduced Shipping when I shop there. For example, I recently bought a bunch of Ponchos there that were On-Sale for $7-bucks-a-piece and $1.99 S/H.
If you ask me, the Q is the WORST when it comes to easy-pays and Shipping. As well, their Pricing is outrageous. I would say that I buy 45% HSN, 45% Evine, and 10% QVC.
HELLO, JADIVA, MY DEAR FRIEND!!!
I COULD NOT AGREE WITH YOU MORE!!!
I ACTUALLY THREW EVINE IN THERE BECAUSE
A LOT OF OTHER HSN VENDORS WENT THERE-
LIKE SHARIF, VICTORIA WIECK, ETC.
I DID NOT WANT TO CLOSE THE DOOR ON EVINE.
BUT I AM HEARING RUMORS THAT THE Q IS UNDER
SERIOUS NEGOTATIONS WITH HEIDI.
I AM REALLY AFRAID THAT ALL OF THIS DOES
NOT BODE WELL FOR HSN CUSTOMERS.
HOWEVER, I AM VERY CURIOUS TO SEE WHAT THE Q DOES
NEXT WITH REGARD TO THE HSN CUSTOMER BASE.
WILL IT RE-MOLD HSN BY ADDING NEWBIES
OR WILL IT JUST WORK TO ASSIMILATE THE HSN CUSTOMER???
AS FOR TSC CANADA, I THINK THAT THAT IS A GREAT PLACE
FOR HEIDI AS WELL. I JUST WISH THAT IT WERE OPEN FOR
OTHERS OUTSIDE OF CANADA- BUT I UNDERSTAND WHY
IT IS NOT.
IN ANY EVENT, IF YOU HEAR SOMETHING, PLEASE SHARE.
I AM SUPER INTRIGUED.
LOAF AND SHEEBS, I AM SO WITH YOU, MY SISTERS!!!
I ONLY ASKED BECAUSE I HEARD A RUMOR THAT
HEIDI AND THE Q ARE UNDER NEGOTIATIONS.
I THINK THAT THE Q IS TRYING TO GET HEIDI TO
GO STRICTLY WITH THE Q. THIS IS SO LOW DOWN
AND DIRTY ON THE PART OF THE Q- KNOWING
FULL WELL THAT HEIDI’S HOME IS RIGHT HERE
ON HSN. THEY ARE MERELY TRYING TO HIGHJACK
HSN CUSTOMERS UNDER THE GUISE OF IMPROVEMENT.
AGAIN, I CANNOT SAY IT ENOUGH,
HEIDI BELONGS RIGHT HERE AT HSN, WITH US!!!
SHE HAS VIRTUALLY AN ONLINE STORE HERE AT HSN.
SHE HAS GREAT CONTROL OVER HER PIECES, PRICES, ETC.
SHE HAS A DEDICATED FOLLOWING- ONE THAT SHE
MIGHT LOSE IF SHE GOES TO THE Q (OR EVINE).
BESIDES, WHO WANTS TO BE IN SNOWY, RAINY
PENNSYLVANIA (Q) AND/OR MINNESOTA (EVINE)
WHEN SHE CAN BEE IN SUNNY TAMPA, FLORIDA-
A QUICK PLANE RIDE AWAY.
ALSO, TO GET TO WEST CHESTER, PA (WHERE THE Q
IS LOCATED) IS A HUGE TREK!!! IT IS NOT AN EASY
CAR RIDE. IT’S WAY OUT PAST PHILLIE- IN A SUBERB.
EITHER WAY, IT’S TOO MUCH OF A COMMUTE.
ALSO, IF SHE GOES TO THE Q (OR EVINE),
SHE IS COMPETING WITH A WHOLE LOT OF
OTHER JEWELRY VENDORS- PRECIOUS GEMS
AND MATERIALS TO FASHION JEWELRY.
ALSO, THE Q SELLS A LOT OF “AS IS” PRODUCTS
ACROSS THE BOARD IN ALL CATEGORIES-
I HOPE THAT HEIDI UNDERSTANDS THAT THE Q
WILL CHEAPEN HER PRODUCT AND TAKE HER
WHEN I SHOPPED REGULARLY AT THE Q, I SAW
TIME AND TIME AGAIN THAT THEY WOULD TAKE
KNOWLEDGE FROM EACH VENDOR- ESPECIALLY
THE NEW ONES WHO MAY STAY QUIET IN ORDER TO
“BREAK OUT” INTO THE MARKET- AND MAKE IT INTO
THEIR OWN Q BRAND.
ONE MAJOR EXAMPLE THAT I REMEMBER WELL THAT
THE Q DID THIS WITH WAS WITH THE WOMEN IN CONTROL PANTS.
THE Q TOOK THE IDEA AND BEGAN INCORPORATING IT
SOON AFTER INTO THEIR DENIM AND COMPANY LINE.
IN ANY EVENT, PLEASE POST UPON RECEIPT OF ANY NOTICES
AND LET US ALL IN ON THE TRUTH.
WE ARE HEIDI’S HSN BREAD AND BUTTER AND
WE DESERVE RESPECT.
OH, SIGH.. XOXO
Evine’s audience and net worth is much smaller than QVC or HSN, Heidi would not go there. I think she will stay at HSN as long as HSN exists. IF QVC swallows HSN up and becomes one network it makes sense she will go to QVC. I would not worry about it right now. Evine has very high shipping charges and small inventory which I hate.
You are so right about that. Josey I believe she is already on QVC Canada.
I think Heidi Daus is a keeper. ♥ I hope she stays right here at HSN. Heidi Daus
has grown leaps and bounds here at HSN. I can almost remember her first show.
I love to see Sonja and Victoria model her jewels but Heidi Daus is her own best
model. ♥ JMO!
