Pick Your Own Items

I will be the first to say there are certain items of Paparazzi's that I don't love or like that much.  There are a few things I have that I wonder if I will ever sell them.  I cheer inside when someone buys one!!!   When I am looking at ordering kits and I see one of the items that doesn't sell as well, I wonder if I should choose that kit.  Often, if the other 4 items sell easily, I buy it.  

I've been debating about what to do with this situation and I've done the math.  For $10, you can have Paparazzi pull 25 singular items from kits at the wherehouse.  So it costs an additional $.40 for each item you have pulled.  I think it is actually less expensive to have them pull the 4 items you want in a pack than it is to get a pack of 5 with one that doesn't sell well (especially if you already have 2 or 3 of them in your inventory).

Yesterday, I made a large purchase because I have so many parties coming up.  I went through each package and decided what I wanted and what I didn't want.  I bought a lot of 5 set kits.  Then I called corporate and asked them to pull 150 items I wanted from kits where I didn't want to buy everything.  I figure it costs me $.40 more per item, but that is worth it to me.  I avoided having some of the slower moving items in my inventory.  

There are quite a few clips, headbands, necklaces, bracelets, etc that come in blockbusters that are not in kits.  This is your chance to buy 1 or 2 each the ones you want without having to buy 5 of the same one.   Smart idea!!!!    Just make sure you tell corporate that you want these shipped with your other order so you don't have to pay shipping on it!

Just so you know for 1-25 items, it cost $10.   If you have them pull 26, it will cost $20.  So plan accordingly.   Buy in groups of 25 to avoid being charged so much per item.

Happy shopping!!!!


  1. Thanks for helping me with my order today! I can't wait to see what everything looks like!

  2. I tried this with my last order and I was so happy when I got my shipment! It seemed so much better to only have the things that I knew would sell! They were the first things gone at my last boutique! It is definately worth the money, in my opinion, but it's actually .40 per item, not .25 :)
