Default I know he means well...

But is the opportunity to open a line of credit at Frantz such a good idea?

It all depends upon you......... Will you buy what you need for immediate use or will you be like me and want every new glass on the market?

Only you know your glass limits. If there is any such thing!!!!

Oh, I *SO* cannot go there.
There's a reason the only "credit" card I own is my debit card (ie: no $ in checking account & it declines

It is not like I am offering crack customers a $200 line of credit. Crack customers have a problem saying "NO". I am dealing with smart and sensible beadmakers who would only use this line of credit in a color emergency.

Color emergencies can also be "ZOMG, I love Lemongrass, I need to stock up before it's gone forever - back the truck up!"

this is a prime example of how easy it is to both love and hate someone at the same time! Mike you are SUCH an enabler!

But at the same time, it is nice to see a company offering credit to its customers when so many other companies are revoking it. It's nice that Mike has faith in us

It's not really a credit line, but for example you need glass now but don't have the money until the beginning of the month kind of deal. Still, it is the lowest credit finance amount than anyone should you run over the alotted time to pay.

I hope I never have to use it but it's nice to know it's there if I do need it. Thanks Mike!

I really dont know why Mikes business decisions should be open for discussion .
If someone doesn't like it , they dont have to use it !
Please , mind your own stores,let Mike and his team tend to theirs .

I know that I can only speak for myself, but I wrote what I did as a positive for Mike. The tone of this thread appears, to me at least, to be positive, and slightly tongue-in-cheek.

ETA: I do apologize if it came across as though I were criticizing Mike in any way!

Gina hon , I didn't take yours or others as negative at all .
It was in fact why the question was even asked that bothered me .
It would be no different that if any of us opened a thread only to find someone didn't approve of how we were running our business .
If Mike wanted our opinions , he would have started a poll.

Default Pick a number....any number.

This thread is fine, I want to hear what people have to say about me offering a small line of credit. I have lots of glass, as a matter-of-fact, unless you have seen how much glass I have, you would not believe me if I told you. So my question for today is how many tons (ton=2,000) of Effetre, Vetrofond, Messy, Double Helix, Tag, Precision, Northstar, Glass Alchemy, millefiori and sheet glass do you think I have. The one who emails me the closest guess will get a gift from me. I will give you one clue, I have less than 100 tons and more than 1 ton. I will pick the winner in one week or whenever there has not been a new guess for 72 hours.

I love fun games!

mikey

I'm thrilled Mike has offered a credit line. You have no idea how many sales I've missed because I didn't have the money to pay for glass until two or three weeks after the sale ended. Thanks Mike.

I guessed 63 tons. I cannot even wrap my head around what that much glass would look like. It kinda makes me drool though!

DISCLAIMER: Please take the following as it's meant. Just MY opinion, not meant to have any inflection (since people seem to be apt to read into posts.... I'm being up front, this is said in the nicest way and without any malice. Covering my bases here, folks!)


I'm sorry, anything that is public or posted online is up for discussion. This idea of getting self-righteous over someone posting an opinion online is ridiculous. If Mike were worried what people thought, he'd probably never have a store.... there's always ONE naysayer. I'll bet ONE person was against his choice to open a business, unless he is just a lucky guy to have only supportive people surrounding him!!

It's like saying you can't question or comment on someones choice of fabric for an outfit or choice of colors for a bead. No, has nothing to do with you what someone else does.... but really? People are opinionated and last time I checked, the First Amendment DID cover things like personal opinions....

Now, if that opinion posting were against the rules at Lampworketc, then that's another story as this is a privately run forum. But it's not. So why get your knickers in a twist over it?

Oh the irony.... me lecturing someone about their opinion on someone elses opinion.... Anyone other than me find the entire thing ludicrous?
