This isn't a proper amount of notice re: Holiday Sale.
Anything new or different for the sale? Coupons?
% off because I'm a frequent commentor on Blenko?
% off as I am a FOH / Friend of Hilary?
% off as I'm a senior citizen?

Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space.

For more than one year, I have ask about the Blenko Collectors group. You ignore my questions, they aren't published and & no answer is offered.
Will you address this in a column in 2010?
