Christmas may be over but the European Market is definitely still open!
New Year's Resolution for 2017: Hide Out while Planning Something Special!
The Lebkuchen is probably all eaten or stored away in the freezer for those moments in the coming months when one just has to satisfy the craving!
Christmas 2016 was another sell-out season for Gingerbread World and we want to thank each of our customers – new and old – for supporting our small business and enjoying the treats and gifts from Germany.
This is the fourth season that I personally have had the privilege of sending yummy packages all over the world on behalf of our customers – although Gingerbread World has been doing it for more than 25 years now. I always say that we have the best customers on the world!
Last year I tried something new – keeping Gingerbread World open year round to ship German imports throughout North America. Although it was not a bust…it wasn’t enough of a success to make it worth trying again.
There are a number of factors that make it difficult to stay open year-round:
- It’s difficult to import some items outside of the special occasion seasons like Christmas and Easter (and even Easter has become complicated)
- And here’s the big one: For about 3 months over the summer I love being at the cottage as much as possible and driving into Winnipeg to ship orders is out of the question!!
So for 2017 Gingerbread World will stay open till January 31 with our Clear the Shelves Event. So grab the German chocolate and marzipan you’ll need to tide you through the coming months and take advantage of really great prices on Christmas items and gift ideas.
Gingerbread World’s webshop will hibernate for about 6 months but that’s not to say we won’t be working hard behind the scenes. We’ve got some brand new concepts for 2017 that we have already started creating and given the success of the Specialty Gift Packages we introduced this past season we’ll be designing new ideas for 2017.
Thank you again for your order(s) in 2016. My family and I wish you a fabulous and successful 2017!
Happy New Year from our family to yours! You'll hear from us again in August 2017 when the brand new Christmas Collection are unveiled!
