  1. Please please please don't let them turn into "word acrobats"! One doofus-mouth in shopping channel land is one too many.
  2. Home Shopping Network

    I don't think HSN sold those products. I've seen the guy CarpeDiem mentioned, during my late night channel surfing.
  3. She ought to start wearing wigs, and then she could sell a wig line. Upscale, amazing amazing wigs, of course.
  4. So beautiful! This looks so nice to those of us who have city skylines in our view. I'll bet it's peaceful and quiet too, no traffic noise.
  5. QVC

    So what is QVC going to do about the HSN products that directly compete with the things QVC pushes so hard? Example, My Pillow, which QVC has just about sold to death. Tony Little on HSN has his Micropedic Pillow, which of course has numerous testimonials claiming it's the best pillow ever. I think Tony has more charisma and sales ability than My Pillow inventor Mike Lindell. Well, at least Tony has that nice pony (tail).
  6. I love Mary Beth's updo. Looks great on her. I agree about ditching the heavy black eyeliner. Is that Mally on the left, with those chunks of waist-length fake hair? It looks like there is an octopus sitting on her head.
  7. There is -- the police said he left a 25-minute "confession" on his cellphone. They haven't released a transcript, but they said it doesn't really explain his motive.
  8. That was my first thought too! Those are "adult entertainment" shoes, otherwise called "do-me" shoes. Come on, Skunky, Prince Harry doesn't watch QVC.
  9. LMAO! Maybe he's just very frugal, or that's his favorite pair of pants and he's determined to wear them until they fall to pieces.
  10. Oh,okay, just that one poster. Elizabeth's necklace is so stunning! I've been meaning to buy her book, "Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair with Jewelry" for a long time. Just haven't gotten around to it.
  11. What is everybody talking about re: shilling? This entire JTV thread, or just some specific posts? I thought the mods started the JTV thread to separate the conversations about the different shopping channels. I post on this thread because I shop a lot at JTV and like most of my purchases, not to promote the channel. Besides, I enjoy talking about jewelry and gemstones. Jewelry accounts for most of my purchases from all the shopping channels. *** Edited to add: Concerning estate jewelry getting higher prices at auction if the owner was famous, here's an article from 2011 about the auction of Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry at Christie's. The auction brought in $116 million. Of course, in addition to Taylor's "fame premium," the jewelry was truly fabulous, with many pieces coming from Cartier, Bulgari, Van Cleef and Arpels, and other top jewelers. http://www.businessinsider.com/elizabeth-taylor-jewelry-sale-auction-records-2011-12 "Elizabeth Taylor's Incredible Jewelry Collection Sold For A Record-Breaking $116 Million Last Night" By Meredith Galante Dec. 14, 2011

  13. You're right, LUP. GSN isn't selling anything at a loss. Jewelry has such a huge markup (from every retailer) that they can offer what looks like a drastic price cut and still make a decent profit. I think there are a few exceptions to the issue of jewelry lacking investment value. Some of the vintage estate items from top jewelers such as Cartier and Tiffany seem to have gone up in value.
  14. Cricket, glad you and Joe got to Florida and back okay. Despite the problems, I think it was good for you both to get away and have a change of scenery. Plus some nice warm weather! I'll bet your furbabies and featherbabies are happy to see you at home.
  15. Home Shopping Network

    Yes indeed, a Kayne Kartrashian skirt. And now the damn ad tracking cookies latched on to my looking at that skirt thing on HSN -- it's showing up in the ads on every page here as I browse the threads. They think I actually want one! LMAO! Now I'll probably have to see it for the next three weeks on every site I visit.
