Services to the Dominatrix World

I was in Spain most of last week as many of you know and it was lovely to catch up with an old friend and enjoy proper Summer weather, not like the UK which as usual paid its price for the mini heatwave of the previous week.

While I was away my little online business ticked over as usual I'm pleased to say but, unusually, my husband took an interest in it. We'd had a few words before I made my trip, about him doing me a favour and mailing some stuff for me while I was away; he hadn't been prepared to do it and I made alternative arrangements which wasn't a problem even though I thought he was a bit mean but I got my backside tanned for arguing about it so I didn't push. Anyway, P took an interest, not by actually doing anything but by checking my orders.

But here's the funny bit and it piqued his interest, not to do with my leather goods which I've been selling for years, but my more recent activity of selling canes which have only been going since the Spring. And the thing that got his attention was a sale on Thursday for 11 school canes. He actually whatsapped me while I was in Spain to say he thought someone must have had a sticky finger and pushed two ones by mistake, he was joking and that can't actually happen, shows how much he knows about my systems, but I had already seen the order anyway and was way ahead of him. I messaged back, 'go back to Monday and look at my sales and the names.' He came back an hour later and said the same person, it was a lady, had ordered one on Monday. 'She must have liked it' he said with a smiley, 'but eleven! She must be in the dominatrix business or maybe she was re-selling them' with a double smiley.

He brought it up again on the weekend, jokey at first saying he thought there must be a few extra sore bottoms about if Royal Mail had done their job on time, then he asked me if I'd thought of offering them to professionals, become a nominated supplier to dominatrix circles, s/m practitioners etc. He was joking again but also serious. I hadn't. I told him I wouldn't know where to find them, he said I should find out, it's business, simple. My husband has his uses, I suppose I could say he did help me out after all.

Have a good week.

Hi Ronnie, glad you had a great time away in Spain and that your business is going well. Oh goodness, 11 canes! I love P's thinking. I think he may be onto something.

Hugs

The advantage you have is that your prices are so reasonable, whereas some places charge outrageous prices. One cane for 10 quid (looked that up to realize that it means ten pounds.. sort of always knew it but needed to be certain). That is why I have ordered four. Mailing costs are excellent.
Anytime I looked in an adult shop, the mark-up was insane. Sort of like the lingerie you saw in a specialty shop.
Good idea to send select emails to disciplinarians. Email is free.

Well done! I'm happy you had a lovely vaca!
Canes are good business! However a Dom of any type seems a good bet!

Roz - Thanks. I had to look twice to make sure I wasn't seeing things. I'd love to know what she will be doing with them.

Red - Thank you so much for supporting and buying some canes. I have tried to keep the cost down so affordable for everyone.

Minelle - I think you could be right. Might find out. Thanks.

Love,
Ronnie

Wouldn't it be fun to google that customer and perhaps see if she was offering "services". I hope she wasn't reselling them at a huge markup. You deserve a commission of she does.

Hugs,
Hermione

P did have an excellent idea. Good luck with "tapping" that new market. ;-p

Glad you had a good holiday in Spain, Ronnie. Eleven canes, that's a lot for one person! Good for business though.
