Christmas Sale 2019

November is rattling along at a heck of a pace, and the Brigade Christmas Sale is already here again. We’re ready to go with our offers for another year

It’s due to run for just over four weeks, until Sunday December 15th. This should allow customers overseas to place their orders and receive them in time for Christmas, and it also allows us to get everything cleared and out of the way before our own holidays so we don’t have to come back to a huge order backlog in January.

It’s the same format as we’ve run for many a year now – 15% off pretty much everything that we make (there are some exclusions – see the Christmas Sale page on the website for full details). You have twenty-nine days starting now, so get to it ! Please feel free share this post on social media, mailing lists, forums etc.

That’s all – finally!

So the sale is over for another year – we’ve finally disabled the code, a bit later than planned (we’ve had a few extra orders today, obviously we’ll honour the sale discount on those). There were also some annoying issues with an update to the WordPress editor that stopped us posting this morning :-/

The response to the last few days of the sale was unexpected to say the least – the value of the orders placed between Friday and Sunday was more than we took in the whole of October ! This means that we may have difficulty clearing the entire queue before we break for Christmas. We will do our best, but some of the orders that arrived towards the back end of Sunday may not quite make it out until the New Year. We’ll keep you all updated…

Shapeways Cyber Monday Sale

Shapeways are having a one day sale today – if you fancied grabbing anything from our Shapeways store (or anyone else’s, but mostly ours 🙂 ), now is the time.

Back to Black

Why, it’s Black Friday ! We sometimes get asked if we have any special Black Friday deals – to which the answer is no, we don’t as such. However, this seems like a good time to post a reminder about the ongoing Christmas Sale, which has been up and running for the past week and still has over three weeks to go. You can save 15% off all of our models including Aeronef, Spaceships, Celtos, Hammer’s Slammers, 6mm and 15mm sci-fi vehicles, Squadron Commander, Small Scale Scenery and the rest. We don’t restrict our sale to just one day…

For more details, see the website.

This is also as good a time as any for a status update; the sale response has been very good so far this year, so much so that I must admit I am struggling to keep up. Over the three days of the weekend we took as much in orders as I’d expect in a fortnight any other time of the year. I’m currently working flat out and, although I haven’t caught up much, the good news is that the backlog is at least fairly static and not getting any bigger ! By the end of today I expect to have cleared everything from the weekend and be making inroads into the orders placed on Monday and Tuesday.

Christmas Sale 2018

So it’s already that time again – the Brigade Christmas Sale starts today ! I’ve uploaded the graphics, tested the shopping cart and it all seems to be working, so we’re ready to roll.

As we have in the last couple of years, we’re starting the sale now and it’s due to run for just over four weeks, until Sunday December 16th. This should allow customers overseas to place their orders and receive them in time for Christmas, and it also allows us to get everything cleared and out of the way before our own holidays so we don’t have to come back to a huge order backlog in January.

It’s the same format as we’ve run for many a year now – 15% off pretty much everything that we make (there are some exclusions – see the Christmas Sale page on the website for full details). You have thirty days starting now, so get to it ! Please share this post on social media, mailing lists, forums etc.
