Is Your Wish List Ready? Make sure it is!

Lots of our customers are using our handy "Wish List" feature... but not everybody knows about it. It makes it so easy for others to shop for you... wouldn't you rather get EXACTLY what you want? I know I would! So here's a step-by-step tutorial.

Become a member of our site by clicking on Register at the top left.
Fill in your information so our system remembers it for you each time you return (no more typing in your address!) and click Register. Once you have entered your information, click on Wishist. Now you need to name your wishlist in the Description field... you can have as many as you'd like! One for the holidays, one for your birthday, one for a new baby... Give it an expiration date (down the road!) Then, start browsing the website, and adding everything you want to your wishlist. You'll notice that on each item, next to the Add to Cart button, there's now an Add to WishList button. This will show up each time you are logged in to our site. Remember to be specific, and choose exact quantities and colors that you'd like. Once you've added everything you want... here's the fun part! You can e-mail your wishlist to all of your friends! Include a little note and enter everyone's email address, and you're good to go! When they receive your email, they'll click on the link and go right to your wishlist. This is what they'll see: All they have to do is type a quantity in the Buy column and hit Add to Cart. How quick is that? No browsing on a site that's overwhelming for them! No calls to customer service asking us to select your perfect holiday gift. Just open email, click link, enter quantities, checkout, receive gushing thank you note after the holidays. Sounds great to me!

If anyone loses the email, you can send them directly to our site. They can click on Find a Wishlist in the left nav bar,
enter your last name and zip code, and find it that way.It's a great feature, and certainly saves a lot of hassles when those non-knitter/crocheter types want to get us gifts. They don't always GET it, so this really helps and makes everyone happier in the end!
