We Resisted, But New Prices at Sandbox Threads

We tried, but at the end of the day we had to raise our prices from $17 per item to $18. For those of you who have been with us since the beginning, you will know that $18 is still lower than our original price of $18.95 when we opened for business last year.

Our goal at Sandbox Threads is to offer the coolest baby clothes at the lowest possible price, but we also need to make a little money along to way. At the beginning of 2008, we received the new price list from each of our suppliers, and each raised their prices for 2008. Also, postal prices have increased and will again increase in the coming weeks, but we have maintained our shipping rates and kept our free shipping for orders over $50.

We still believe we are offering a better quality product at some of the lowest prices around. Most of our competitors charge four, five, and sometimes ten dollars more than Sandbox Threads. We could probably charge that much also, but we just don't want to do it. I started Sandbox Threads to offer an alternative, and we plan to continue to do just that.
