This Black Friday, Nov 24, through Cyber Monday, Nov 27, every FTG order over $50 gets FREE shipping to anywhere in the world, plus we will include a FREE handblown glass gift worth at least $10 in your package! Just enter coupon code BUYART at checkout to have the discounts applied to your order. It’s our way of saying thank you for supporting artists this holiday season, and for shopping small family businesses like ours.
I am not sure if this is technically a SALE, in the sense that I am not offering a huge percentage off the items’ prices, like some of the Black Friday sales I see out there. The truth is, if a store is giving you 50% off, chances are it’s because the item was over-priced to begin with! (Ok, sorry for the short rant. Unless, of course, you like that sort of thing, in which case you can see more on this subject here.)
We take pride in creating hand-made, heirloom quality art that is accessible to all people. Art should never be a luxury afforded exclusively to the rich. We price our handcrafted, hand blown glass gifts and jewelry to be as affordable as possible, while still earning a living wage and keeping the studio up and running. However, I am happy to take on your shipping and handling fees for a few days, and to offer a little surprise in each package that I think you will enjoy, or to pass along to someone who will. It is the least we can do to show how grateful we are for people who keep us afloat in this culture of consumption. You folks who shop with a conscience, and take responsibility for helping to create the world we all want to live in, we salute you!
Will shopping at Family Tree Glass this holiday season help save the world? Probably not. Will it help save the industry of small mom and pop shops and independently working studio artists? Absolutely.
