Last day for $99 Starter Kit for Willow House

At Willow House, we embody grace, warmth, and a bit of magic.

Shopping carts, online ordering, E-commerce, E-outlet and E-Boutiques!

Come join our amazing new company now!!!

Just a quick note to let you know that today is the last day to take advantage of our $99 mini-starter kit, if you or a friend would like to join!


Here’s some info for you:


• Today is the last day for the $99 mini-starter kit.  That’s definitely the most budget-friendly way to start.  The $99 kit has about half of the product and business supplies as the $199 kit, so you can choose which works best for you.  I’m attaching the fliers for both kits.• If you sign up and never do a party, that’s 100% up to you.  But if you sign up and decide to do a couple of parties, not only will you earn back the cost of your starter kit, you can earn free product via our Success Start program for new consultants.  It’s totally up to you.• There is never a minimum and your consultant agreement isn’t cancelled if you don’t sell any/enough.  Our yearly renewal is $35.• We have a 40% discount.• The best way to get a lot of product for yourself is to become a consultant and host your own party; you get the 25% commission (as the consultant) and the hostess benefits (as the hostess).

Tomorrow afternoon we’ll be rolling out the next phase of Willow House — our new online Catalog and Outlet! I invite you to take time to watch a special video message from CEO Bill Shaw. Bill will detail the vision behind Willow House, the “why” and “when” of the important phases and where we are headed in the future:

Email Me for more detail. Why not try us on for Size? You have Nothing to loose and Everything to gain.

Monday, September 27, 2010

Order anyone?

I can't believe the End of September is in a few days. Worse is that means the holidays are right around the corner. Why not get a jump on things and save yourself some stress.

I will be placing an order Tuesday night (EST). Contact me if you'd like to add anything. The SPECIAL offer of 26 issues of Southern Living magazine for only $20 ends September 30th. We also have the BEST pricing on a popular magazine that ALL of YOU have probably heard of or seen in Walmart. Due to Corporate rules I can not advertise it but you can email me for ALL the details.

Don't forget that when you order $39.96 worth of items you can order anothe product of equal or lesser Value for 50% off.

Did you see my post about the Magazine gift card? $20 and it can be used on 17 different titles. Check it out and then contact me to order. Order several and keep them on hand for any last minute gift needs. So handy and a gift that will not be ReGifted! Plus every card ordered receives a cool tote for FREE. That's another item you could give as a gift.


Email me ASAP at and let's get shopping.

Coming October 1st, a New way to shop

While at our Willow House convention in July a lot of new and exciting things were announced. One of my favorites is about to begin,

ON LINE Ordering.

Why so exciting you ask?

What that means is that starting October 1st, Anyone, anywhere in the USA can go to my Willow House website and place an order.

No need for a party.

No having to contact me to make payment.

No waiting for delivery.

Need a gift and want to order a Magazine gift card? You are on the West Coast and its the middle if the night for me? NO problem. Go on my website. Place the order. Use a Credit or debit card to pay. That's it. The order will be on its way to you from our warehouse.

This is going to be GREAT.

Having a party with me and Aunt Sally in another state wants to order? Great. Have her go on your "On line Party",
Place her order-Pay- and her order will be shipped directly to her. She doesn't even have to wait until the party closes.

This is going to make our on line Blogger parties that much easier.

If you would like more information on setting up an On line Party or Fundraiser, let me know.

Check out my website at

From my house Directly to yours,

Where has YOUR week gone?

My intention is never to go a week without posting. My Willow House blog is supposed to be informative and fun. Partnering Bloggers send people to my site to learn about the company and our beautiful products. I know when I follow a Blog it is upsetting to go to the site and find an old post.

I have let myself but more importantly my new friends Down. For that I am sorry.

My week has been filled with Three doctors appointments and Three meetings. My home computer hasn't even been turned on this week. My plan is to get back on track. Starting with the next post.

How has your week gone? If you have a blog, how often do you post? Do you write everyday?

Share and you could get a little gift from me!

Stockpiling Moms giveaway and a welcome to Willow House

Happy Sunday.

If you are visiting from the Stockpiling Moms site, WELCOME!!  I'm so glad you have dropped by to check out my site.  I've been reading the comments and am excited to see so many of you say you've never heard of Willow House.  Let me take a moment to introduce myself and my company.

My name is Cheryl Hinton and I am very excited to share my business, Willow House with you.

I became a consultant with Southern Living at Home in January of 2008. To be honest, I started because I wanted to fill my home with the beautiful items I saw in the catalog while attending my friends party. My husband supported my idea, in fact encouraged me, and I called the Consultant from the party and asked her how to sign up. For the next two years, I had a few parties a month and used all of my 25% commission to purchase items for our home or to give as gifts. I didn’t work very hard and didn’t want anything more from the business. The best part about being a consultant for SLAH was they didn’t pressure me to sell a certain volume each month, or carry an inventory.

Last July it was announced that one of the former founders of SLAH had purchased the company and planned to join his new company, Entertaining at Home, with ours. Everyone was nervous to see what would happen to the company we loved. July 16, 2010 we learned the new vision of the company and on August 1st, 2010--Willow House was born.

I could not be more excited by the products and the vision for the future of our new company. The products are still the same high quality we have come to expect and the business side of things are exploding with possibilities. I am on fire for the new company and very honored to share it with you today. The company is taking Direct Sales into the 23rd century. For a very reasonable investment of $99-$199 you can own your own Willow House business.

1. This fall Willow House Design Consultants will be able to own our business, not just be a rep for someone else. That means I can sell my business or pass it down to my family. That is HUGE.

2. We will be expanding our business across the country via enhanced On-Line ordering. No longer will customers have to be attached to a “Party”. If someone wants to order, anywhere in the country, they can log onto my website and place their order using a credit or debit card. It will be shipped directly to their home.

3. Soon we will unveil our new E-Boutiques. These will be On-line Stores that will feature TOP Name companies that have partnered with us to sell their products to our customers. Best of all, I will receive commission off these sales in addition to our regular products.

4. Next year, our plan is to be able to sell and ship globally. That will increase my business and commission to a whole new level. I already earn 25% commission. Imagine how much that could be selling to the world!

There are other plans for the company and I am excited to see where they will take us. Our main focus is still bringing beautiful products into the homes of customers all over the United States. As Design Consultants we have the pleasure of helping others learn about Decorating style, trends, and how to use what you all ready own to change the look and feel of your home. We will keep you up to date on Style and Trends as they change, through our Free Newsletter sent monthly to our customers.

I’d love to have you join my team. If you would like more information on becoming a Willow House Design Consultant contact me via email at, or through my website (no www). You can also see and order our fantastic products through our on line catalog, also located on my website.

If you are interested in holding your own Design Party or having an On-line party, contact me. I am also interested in partnering with other bloggers to share Willow House with your readers. Contact me for more information.

I also would love to sign you up for our Free Monthly newsletter. You can get signed up by emailing me at or by leaving me a comment here asking to be added to my list.

Good Luck on the ALL YOU giveaway and Welcome to Willow House.  If you would like a subscription, we offer the 18 issues for $20.  Contact me to order.  If you end up winning the Free Subscription, I will cancel your payment prior to submitting it to All YOU.

From my house to yours!

My favorite product

Thought I'd share one of my favorite products;

The Savannah Beverage Server.  This beauty makes any get together Special.  I went to a meeting once where they served Water with Cucumber Slices in the Server.  It was the best refreshment I'd ever had.  Was it the Water or the Display?
