Welcome to DAY #1

If this is your first time with us, thanks so much for joining us. There is a lot of "fine print" info at the bottom of this post that you might want to read to understand how this all works...but beware that your item might sell out while you are reading LOL!!

Over the last couple of years, what we have learned is that during this sale no one... and I mean no one... is interested in anything I have to say here that is cute or whimsical! Instead all that everyone wants to see is what is up for the daily goodies. So this year, I won't even try and we will move right to the good stuff!

ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME, A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE.

 

Our kit for the day:  LATTICE QUILT

Our Notion of the day: SEWLINE SCISSOR SET

SOME MORE INFO ON THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE:
 
 
IN PAST YEARS, MANY OF YOU HAVE ASKED WHAT IS THE BEST/MOST ACCURATE WAY TO KNOW WHEN WE HAVE POSTED THAT DAY'S SALE. SINCE WE WILL CHANGE THE TIMES THAT WE POST THE PRODUCTS TO GIVE PEOPLE ON BOTH COASTS AS WELL AS INTERNATIONAL A BETTER CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE, YOU HAVE TO "FOLLOW" US IN SOME WAY.

EACH DAY WE WILL SEND OUT OUR NEWSLETTER, WRITE A BLOG POST AND TRY TO LET YOU KNOW VIA INSTAGRAM.

THE MOST RELIABLE WAYS ARE THE NEWSLETTER AND INSTAGRAM. IF YOU SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLOG, THE SUBSCRIPTION OFTEN COMES LATE OR THE FOLLOWING DAY. THE DESCRIPTION OF THAT DAY'S PRODUCTS WILL BE ON THE BLOG EACH DAY BUT YOU MIGHT WANT ANOTHER FORM OF FINDING OUT THAT WE HAVE "GONE LIVE" FOR THAT DAY. Generally the blog subscription is a wonderful way to know what is going on around here and to see updates and will often give you info that won't be in our newsletter. But for information that is as timely as updates about the 12 DAYS sale, the newsletter or IG are the ways to go because they are immediate and you can see/notice them right away.

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS INFO...
PLEASE READ ALL THE DETAILS
AS SOME INFO HAS CHANGED
 
* The Fig Tree 12 Days of Christmas sale starts on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and lasts for 12 days [usually with a Sunday off here or there].  
 
* Each day a different kit, stocking stuffer and/or home dec goodie will be advertised- on some days several of each! WE HAVE SO MANY YUMMY GOODIES THIS YEAR! Each day a special DAILY DEAL will be made as well.  
 
* Each special offer will only become available on that one day. Each goodie will only be available while stock lasts. Most of the items offered will sell out on that day, some will last a few days. Please believe us that some items will sell out crazy fast [in minutes] and some will last all day based on popularity and stock. Although we try and anticipate the demand, we are often surprised by your enthusiasm and are limited by how much stock we can carry of any given item.
 
* We never know which ones will sell out the fastest! If we are able to get more in stock of any popular product, we will try but we can't guarantee that anything that sells out will come back in stock. If they can, it will not be a part of the sale but something that we offer after Christmas for a separate January delivery. 
 
* For those of you who want to continue to purchase items throughout the 12 days of the sale but want us to hold your purchases for one shipment, YOU NEED TO BUY-A-BOX. SEE MORE INFO BELOW. The box is an actual product available on our homepage.  You only need to purchase it once either before the sale starts or on the first day that you purchase a 12DAYS item- but you need to purchase it as an actual product once. Then for all the remaining purchases you make, you will simply choose the "I BOUGHT  A BOX" option in the shipping directions during the checkout process. PLEASE READ BELOW FOR NEW INFO on the BUY-A-BOX option.
 
*** PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
AS OUR SHIPPING OPTIONS HAVE CHANGED THIS YEAR ***

Just like in past years of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS we offer you the choice to hold all of your daily goodies to be shipped together at the end of the sale so you can save money on the shipping costs and keep adding goodies throughout the 12 days! Its an awesome option and a lot of fun! This year we are continuing our special shipping system, called "BUY-A-BOX" and have added the "BUY-A-ENVELOPE" option.

This is how it will now work:
Given the crazy, popularity of this sale for us, each year we have to make some adjustments based on the past year's sale. This year, just as last year, in order to "play along" with the 12 days of the sale, you need to first BUY-A-BOX or BUY-AN-ENVELOPE.

If you think that you will mostly buy small items and are primarily interested in the daily deals and the stocking stuffers, then you should BUY-AN-ENVELOPE. If your goodies "spill" out of the envelope, we will upgrade you to a medium box... AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. Once your medium box fills, we will send it to you along with an email that your box has shipped. Depending on what day of the sale it is and if you plan on continuing for the remaining days, you will then be able to decide if you wish to buy another envelope or box in order to continue with the sale or not.

If you think that you will be trying to get kits, fabrics and some of the "bigger ticket" items and you are a die hard 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS fan, then you should BUY-A-BOX. If your goodies "spill" out of the medium box, we will upgrade you to a large box... AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. Once your large box fills, we will send it to you along with an email that your box has shipped. Depending on what day of the sale it is and if you plan on continuing for the remaining days, you will then be able to decide if you wish to buy another box in order to continue with the sale or not.

If your envelope or box does not fill throughout the sale, it will remain until the last day and it will ship on that day.

The biggest change from last year - for those of you who have participated before- is that once your allotted box has filled, we will need to ship it and you can decide if you wish to purchase another box. This is still a fabulous shipping deal! Not only because we will be upgrading you one shipping category at our cost, but because you can keep shopping knowing that we will continue to put items in your box until we absolutely cannot add anything else! The reason we are changing the shipping from the past is because of the sheer volume of customers that outgrew their box multiple times. The result was a bit more chaos than the elves knew what to do with around her toward the end of the sale!

So here are your steps:

1. Decide if you want to BUY-AN-ENVELOPE or BUY-A BOX.
2. Purchase either before the sale starts so you are ready. Only buy it one time!!
3. When you are buying your goodies, select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" choice in the shipping drop down menu so that you are not charged for shipping each time you place a new item in your box. This is basically your free shipping option for the rest of the items [until you fill your box].
4. If you do not select "I BOUGHT A BOX" as your shipping option when you purchase items, we will assume that you wish to receive the product right away and you want it shipped right away and you do not wish to accumulate items. Believe it or not, there are many customers for whom this is their own personal Christmas and they look forward to receiving the packages each and every day. Enjoy!
Please know that if you forget to select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" option for shipping during checkout, we will not be able to change it. Due to the sheer volume of 12 DAYS customers, we really only have the opportunity to see what is chosen and ship or not ship based on the info you have provided during checkout. Thank you so much for understanding!

Remember you will BUY-A-BOX only once before the sale begins. This will make all of us- you and us- ready for the sale before it even begins!! You can of course still BUY-A-BOX on the first day of the sale or on any other day that you begin shopping the sale. Basically if you want to accumulate your goodies, you must BUY-A-BOX first. If you fill up your box, we will ship it to you and email you right away to let you know that you will need to purchase a new box if you want to keep shopping.

Like we mentioned above, if you prefer, we can still ship things out to you each day and you will be charged shipping for each order. If you want to do that, then do not BUY-A-BOX at all and simply purchase your goodies and select regular shipping during checkout.
For international customers, charges will be adjusted to equal actual shipping costs.

I'm sorry this is terribly confusing. So, if you didn't buy a box before the sale started are you SOL? I can't seems to get to it or find a price on anything. Same thing last year. I just gave up!

The boxes are available on the front page of the shop. They have been there since before the sale started and are available for purchase any time.


Please read all the info given on the first day of the sale and that should answer all your questions…. the link is included below.

Thank you

I've given up on this too. Buy a. Box? Buy an envelope?

I never can seem to get how you order from Fig Tree. So now I pretty much look at the pretty pictures.

Glad I'm not the only one.

Like we said… this sale is not for everyone!

It's 10:55... Have the little nail sets sold out already? Just seeing the tape.
:( Kathy

I cant find any of the products after I get the emails. Where are they? There doesn't seem to be a link to click on to take you there. I've looked in the Shop but cant find them. Where do we go when we get the email?? Thanks! Kay

Just the tape left at this point…. so sorry.


If you cannot find the products, that is because they are sold out by the time you click on them. 


This mornings sale went live at 7:00 PST as advertised and most of the items were sold out by 8:15. So sorry. You need to follow along with the newsletter [not the blog notifications], as that gets emailed out the minute the sale goes live and then you need to order right away. Most items sell out really quickly during this crazy sale. People wait by their computer to see when the products come up on the Fig Tree homepage!! Tomorrows sale will go up at the same time, 7:00 am PST so you dont have to wait for the newsletter, you can just go check the site. Hope that helps and good luck!

I've been on since 6:30 no post no products no feed ? Help

We just went live now!
