QVC

Recommended Posts

Those tacky lawn ornaments are just another reason why I could never be a host at that Q.  My attitude would be: I'm not presenting this crap!  I always joked with a friend of mine that they should have a host who gave their honest opinion during presentations.  That would certainly be a lot more entertaining.

Here's a $70 illuminated frog birdbath.  And how nice!  You can choose what gender you want represented in your front yard!

I’ll add this item to the list of this stuff. One animal choice includes a faux candle at an unnatural angle inside the belly. I just think that there has to be a better way to execute this for $42 or $38 + s&h.🙂

With an illuminated filagree ribcage design, these animal decos might as well just be designed to hold the candle, have it placed on its head or sitting on it!! It's getting that ridiculous.

Mary Beth introduced one of the three new show hosts; Monifa Day.  She is an actor and director from LA.....sounds like the perfect fit.

 

Why would they lay three off, only to hire three new hosts?

They've sold 7 of the goose in the last day!  Hurry, it's going fast!

This honestly could be a gift of spite.  Look at how the candle is positioned inside the goose.  How do you think you're getting it in and out to replace the batteries?

Every time I try exchanging something, they just end up returning my item, despite that the new item I want is in stock and available. One time I tried calling ahead of time and they told me you don’t have to do that anymore. 
Free exchanges is apparently bullshit.

Q is clearing out the Diamonique stackable rings TSV from last September that got terrible reviews because of sizing, being uncomfortable to wear, and stones falling out, and was also noteworthy for having rings being shown on-air with stones noticeably missing.  J367723, dropped from the QVC price of $54.25 (comparable retail value of $74.50) to $26.22.

They pretty much had no choice.

Maybe because I already lived through the 1970’s, but these AHDORNED handbags with the two embroidered straps do not appeal to me at all.  The straps cheapen the look, IMO.   Also, $99 for faux leather?

Amy seems to be a big fan.

And I wonder just how long Amy will continue her allegiance to her hairstyle of choice.

It’s edgy, but the shelf life of ‘edgy’ is often shorter than expected.

I think she just can’t admit the relationship with this one might be over.

I’m quite sure it takes a while to get it to look like this.

The OAP for the Ahdorned brand and Amy Stran are pretty dug in on the anthropomorphism of these bags. They’re all females, the bags I mean.

Amy looked great in this wig. She said she'd worn this haircut in the past, and she probably would have it cut that way again. Pics from August 2020. Please, Amy, we're still waiting!

Those bags are not attractive, especially that puffy tote thing they sell. And every time I see the name, ABHOR pops into my head. It's that superfluous H.

The exact same color of the TSV sandals as depicted on the left contributed to the ensemble that got Jane put once again into @Booney's fashion poll file last night.

Check out Nordstrom Rack, which carries Rebecca Minkoff on the regular.  I've been unexpectedly pulled in and bought one or two on various trips there.  Their website has a lot of them, too!

Is QVC's over the air signal not in HD? We recently just cut the cord since we really only stream and hardly watch cable. I watch PBS Create for the cooking shows and QVC for the anger and unintentional comedy - but the QVC signal is very low quality. its not pixelated like the channels we barely get, but very low definition. I was just wondering if that's just the way it is. The HSN signal is pretty bad too. Even reruns of the Brady Bunch on MeTV are higher quality.

Edit: I acknowledge my test in TV is pretty strange.

I experienced low picture quality when I was watching QVC with an antenna.  I now use Youtube TV for streaming, and the Q comes in in excellent quality.  I think it has to do with programs "over the air" just being of lesser quality in general, but it is fine on Youtube TV.

Interesting, because my local channels display over the air is vastly better than the cable HD. Most of the over the air shows look great, but there are some issues with older shows which weren't filmed in HD. QVC and HSN are really stand outs in how bad the quality is. But since I mostly stream shows its not an issue. But I do miss just switching over to QVC now and then to see what BS they are trying to sell.

Trainwreck is on Facebook. I couldn't watch it -- not an FB member and they block me. But I've been hearing about it from others. It's after 8 p.m. ET now, so the chat might be over. Probably it will be archived on the person's FB page, so it will be available to watch.
