What’s in a Name?

Once in a Blue Moon Online Thrift and Consignment Store

What’s in a Name?

Apparently a lot more than I thought. We’ve been in business for almost 12 years and have always been known as Once in a Blue Moon Online Thrift Store with a domain name of www.gone-tomorrow.com. It was all so perfect when we started out because we could use the slogan of: Once in a Blue Moon Online Thrift Store,  Where Merchandise is Here Today and Gone-Tomorrow.com.

Well as always, things change. The search engines or I should say, Google doesn’t like that the site name doesn’t match gone-tomorrow.com. Really I understand completely. I guess if you wanted to go to Amazon, you wouldn’t think to type in Merchandise for Sale and expect to end up at Amazon and yet that’s what I am expecting everyone to do: to remember Blue Moon Online Thrift Store, but type in gone-tomorrow.com.

Now we get to come up with a new logo to match Gone-Tomorrow. I love the tropical theme we’ve had all these years, so it might be a bit of a challenge. 🙂 NOPE. DONE!

We’ll keep you posted!

You Can’t Judge a Book By its Cover.

Free Shipping Coupon

Sometimes we make statements without even realizing the total depth of their meaning. For example; “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. Your first thought may be that you should not read the book if you don’t like the cover. That’s a logical deduction. But then there’s the chance the meaning could be to not judge a person by the way they look. How well I know that meaning having said this to my own children many, many times.  There are clearly a lot of different scenarios that may warrant the use of this phrase and I am going to point out yet another one now!

When browsing our site, the you first thing you may see is a photo of an item along with the a simple description and the price. Now if you were to simply judge that item based on what you see initially, you wouldn’t know that the item is listed with FREE SHIPPING!

I have been trying to find a way to flag these items, but haven’t had much luck yet. I’m not giving up though. In the meantime; please do not ‘judge our books by their covers.’

Oh and if you see an item you must have and FREE SHIPPING hasn’t been offered on it yet and Free Shipping Couponshould be, please contact me. I can offer you a coupon for free shipping.
