The Happy Dancer is on right now, doing a very hard sell on some flameless candles.  The OAP actually said that brand is the premier flameless candle brand at QVC.  Give me a break.  They are fake candles, not a Tiffany ring.  Premier.

Then as Mr. HD walked across the set, wow.  The vest he's wearing does not hide his large belly.  I am large, so not fat shaming.  I was honestly concerned for him health-wise.  

Then the story of how two days after Thanksgiving, it'll be December 1 and oh we'll all be freaking out - what will we do for Christmas?  Hey, there are stores, and other places that can ship out items in one day (Amazon, Zappos, etc.).  We do not rely on the Q.  I certainly do not.  I have one favorite pair of jeans that they keep in stock and that's about all I order when I need a new pair or so.  They fit me just right, so that's why I keep ordering those.

So true.

I was chatting recently with my one sister who regularly orders from the Q (mostly clothes for work) and she said she's fed up.  She was double billed twice (had to call to fix) due to their computer issues...orders sitting "in process" for 2 weeks prior to being mailed out...being told you cannot "cancel" an order while it's sitting in limbo.  Her latest conversation with a CS rep said that they're behind due to the busy holiday season.  She said she was going to try and cancel her orders.  Not sure how she made out, however, since I didn't hear back yet, I bet it didn't go well.

QVC shipping has been slow all year. The holiday season is not their problem. Poor warehouse management is their problem.

For me Thanksgiving is all about the sides.

I have been known when I was younger (had to work on Friday and couldn't get away) to make a box of Stovetop Stuffin, heat up Stouffers Mac&Cheese and open a can of Ocean Spray whole cranberries sauce.  Maybe a root vegetable (I like them all.)  A nice glass of Pinot Grigio and I was thankful! 

Who needs turkey?

I’m with you JohnnyStar5. The sides are the best. I am famous (in my family anyways) for my candied yams and deviled eggs. I make them the way my Mom did and the rest of the family are always asking for the recipes. I tell them they should have helped Mom cook and they would know. Yeah I’m a bitch 😘.

So I guess QVC -- for one night is tweaking its overnight repeat schedule?

Overnight tonight -- Sat AM starting at midnight -- 12a Cold WX Style with Shawn K...then at 1a Dooney & Bourke, and at 2a -- NOT a repeat of the midnight hour but instead: Clever Dsesigns....so is that a new show?....or more likely -- a repeat of the Friday night show with Antonella?

Then at 3a -- Cold WeatherStyle, I take it that is a repeat of the midnight show

At 4a.m. -- a two hour repeat of Friday night's David & Jane'sHoli-YAYS

6a.m. is back to a repeat of Cold Weather Style 

BUT......on the Sat night/Sun overnight -- it's back to launching the TSV at midnight, a another product show at 1a -- and then once again -- 5 hours of the TSV

What the heck is QVC doing? And why change it for one night only?

My problem with QVC is that my online account hasn’t worked for WEEKS. I can order stuff and see a list of my orders, but if I try to see an invoice or track anything, I get an error and instruction to call CS. I emailed when it started and was told it would be forwarded to the tech dept. When nothing changed and I emailed again, I was told to call. I emailed again this morning and said if they don’t fix it or tell me why they can’t, we’re done. And I mean it. Their phone reps are great, but why won’t they just fix things?? I want to try to keep more of my money local anyway, so this might not be a terrible thing.

I went to a Q outlet which is very nearby. We had company visiting and they knew of it and wanted to go. It was definitely a good thing as you get to see the brands up close and personal and even touch and feel the items. I think many are returns or yes, overstocked, but not defective.

I wanted to mention that most of the items were small quantities or even like 5 or 10 at most. HOWEVER, they had a very solid (wink wink) supply of super short Sherri Sheperd wigs. I have always been curious about the wigs, but the style on this was not even anything I would have tried on. So I still am clueless about wigs, but now I know that super short style obviously didn't appeal to the masses either!!

OK Editing to add that I checked and apparently that brand is no longer sold on the Q? Looks like it's all Toni Braxton and maybe another brand. Well in any case, 

Just thought I would share my knowledge.

I don’t watch QVC as often as I used to, but I did notice the overnight reruns. Did they get rid of the newer Q hosts that used to do the overnight shows or have they moved them to different time slots and I just haven’t run into them recently?

When I got my Thanksgiving card the other day, I realized that I haven't seen Zell in a while. Maybe she's on the Deuce?

Share this post


Link to post

She is. And I caught a bit of her I think on the main channel doing a 1 am Bob Mackie show in the past week or so, and it was painful. I get that she is probably in her 20s or early 30s and has no firsthand knowledge of ‘60s and ‘70s pop culture, but she seemed both unprepared and patronizing. At one point she asked Mackie some stupid, impossible question like, “What is the favorite thing you’ve designed for?” and in his pleasant way he said there were a lot of happy memories and then listed a few occasions/celebs. I wish I could remember the specifics, but I think one was the Carol Burnett Show. Zell clearly had no familiarity with anything or anyone he mentioned and was just waiting for him to stop talking so she could offer, in a tone a teenager would use with Grandma when Mom threatened to revoke driving privileges if she weren’t nice, “Wow, so amazing, we’re getting limited in the blue, so if that’s your color, you should call now or go to QVC-dot-com.” I would have canned her and her stupid teeth for that. Is it really that hard to find people who want the job enough to do some basic homework?

David on a Leg Master exercise machine, although he emphasized "I'm not using the dreaded 'e' word. This is about movement." He said it's safe for 350 pounds, and "I don't weigh 350 pounds. What I weigh is none of your business." He said it in a pleasant way, though.

He seems to really like the machine. He said when he tried it the first time he presented it, he was so impressed that he bought one and uses it at home. Hope it helps him.

The TSV coat will likely go quickly in multiple sizes and colors so that is why they are limiting the reruns.  They need some for Leah's show.

Why the shortage? They previewed it Monday night and probably sold more than anticipated.

I don’t understand what they are doing with the TSV.  It seems to me that there are more than one each day. Or they have a TSV and then 3 days later they have the same one again. What exactly are the trying to do?  I don’t want to know what at the TSV is 3 days from now. I liked the surprise of finding out at midnight (in Ca). What’s the point of having one now?

I hear ya hummingbird. Several years ago, days before a vacation, I ran into the local Walmart before work. I grabbed a few items that looked promising and bought them, figuring I would try them at home and return but they were so cheap I HAD to try. To my shock, everything was a hit. I took the new items on vacation and still have them. (one was jeans, one was a dress, and maybe a top and definitely underwear). I was amazed and delighted.

I still at times make a point of going in and looking at the clothing but there is nothing at all that catches my eyes (except slippers and socks and undies). So disappointing.

I used to watch the Q and actually liked some fashion but it was too pricey for my cheap self. Now I rarely see anything that I would consider if price was not an issue.

Tweak’d Man answered, “Hamilton Canada, the armpit of Canada” to which Shawn-Shawn inserted, “Uh-ugh, Can we edit that out from this presentation?”

The same with their home decor items. I rarely shop at Walmart's brick and mortar stores (and our local WM store closed in October), but a couple of the home design/style bloggers I follow spotlight WM items. I've bought some things from WM online based on the bloggers' recommendations (and they have affiliate links to the products,, of course!). I just bought an oak and metal bar cart from WM online that was mentioned in Emily Clark's blog, and I love it! It's a good size, sturdy, really attractive and a good price (and I saw it online elsewhere for $30 more). Exactly what I was looking for.

Two reviews posted for the TSV coat, both negative.  I see the two dark colors they had are both gone (had a blackberry earlier in the week, which isn't even showing on website), which I would think will slow sales of larger sizes.

Arctic-Expedition-Quilted-Down-Coat

I can't see them on the website and I couldn't see them last night. I was looking as it's a good price for a parka. Reviews on the Q seem to come and go depending on their mood.

I'm guess Josie has plenty of Argan money in the bank so it's nice to see her wearing a dress that a few years old. As dingy and free range breasty as she is, I like her.

Re:  Walmart — a few years ago, I saw a Martha Stewart garden show where she was selling giant canvas garden bags. I had just spent days replacing a bunch of mulch and wanted one for the next time I would have to tackle that chore. I wanted ONE, but of course it was QVC, so you had to buy three, and by the time tax and shipping was factored in, I was looking at $50. Nope.

A day or two later I found a set of two on the Walmart site for $14. And I needed a few other things anyway so got free shipping. One is still in the package, but that was $14 well spent. Those bags are really well constructed.

QVC actually does have a hyperlink to brands, maybe not the up front and center way you see it on other websites.  You have to Shop by category and then see the brands under that category.

Or am I not understanding what your saying?
