Well, the long discussed price increase has definitely arrived at my LD.

He has put up the price of OOAKs from £26 to £35.

:-(

Good thing I am on the beadwagon! Has the price hike arrived anywhere else???

As stated before, some online shops in Germany have raised the prices for ooaks up to 39 €.
And guess what....... they still do sell their stuff. Shocked

They are to expensive now.

OOAKS will have to be out of this world to buy them now.

It is going to be production from now on.

Spoil my spendthrift little hobby will you Trollbeads? Maybe I will adjust it a bit (away from your overpriced goods).

Just ordered 2 OOAKs yesterday at the "old" price of 28 Euros. Thought I'd better get them before the price went up to 39 Euro.

It's sad! I may buy one from time to time, but it will have to be a knock-my-socks off kind for me to do it!!!

It will have to be far superior to anything that Trollbeads has ever produced before to interest me at that price. Even if it is, I don't think that I will be able to make myself click that final buy button.

I don't honestly understand this price increase.
Price group 2 production glass beads have 22k gold leaf in them or something extra...what is so special about most OOAK....I used to think it was such a clever way of Tb to get rid of all them practising beads... Laughing

That is a significant increase. You need to find something quite special to want to pay those prices. Here in the U.S. the prices are all over the place, often 2X Glass 1 for the more desirable beads on websites. I was hoping with the change in distribution, more dealers would be able to get OOAKs and this would help moderate the prices. For a long time
I was so put off by the prices that I rarely even looked at the OOAKs on U.S. sites or in stores. I guess it was an effective way to rein in my Troll-spending...

That's an outrageous price! Shocked Anyone wanting some reasonable priced ooaks try Macrow and Sons Trollbeadsheaven site- they are having a sale and ooaks range from £12.33 to £21.25-now that's a MUCH better price!!! sunny

I have no idea what is going on in the UK at the moment. One LD has already put up their price as I said, but I went to another who said a price rise was coming but that it wasn't to be implemented yet - so their OOAKs are still normal price!!

What is going on??

You want to know the newest faux pas from TB ?

Well, all dealers were informed that they could sell old OOAKs for the old price but had to sell the new OOAKs for the new higher price of EUR 39,-.
And today Trollbeads Germany posted on facebook, that the NEW OOAKs haven´t even been released !!!!!!
So all the "new" expensive OOAKs are old ones Mad

The price increase was on 31.01. so there is no excuse for this !

28-39, 39-28 ..... terrible.
I have this year, fortunately, not yet purchased ooaks. I wait another 3 weeks until they agree whether 28 or 39.

I had an email promoting 'New OOAKs' from Heidis in Austria today. I went for a quick look at the site and they were the Old OOAKs at the new high price. Some of them were nice beads but certainly not of a 'new' type.

I don't get what is going on, this week I got an email from my TD.
They are doing sales 3 OOAK for $75. This seems to be happening with
a number of dealers. And as was mentioned the low prices at Macrows.
Are they trying to get rid of all the old Uniques so they can only do LE sets?
Or are they going to make better beads with more control and higher prices?

I don't understand what is happening with Ooaks, the supply of new ones seems to have dried up. Luckily I haven't found any dealers selling at new higher prices, but I haven't seen any new Ooaks either ! Anyone know whats going on ?

The day before yesterday I received an email from Trollbeads Italy.

"We are excited to inform you that from now on, the unique glass and amber beads gain even more value, not only because of a slight price increase but rather thanks to a new design that makes them even more attractive, more special.
Please note that if you are lucky enough to have a single bead on your bracelet, it has just acquired value!
Since 11 April, the unique glass and amber beads, only available at premium retailers, will cost € 39 each. "

Now I'm waiting to see these beautiful new OOAK beads The day before yesterday I received an email from Trollbeads Italy.

Hahaha - so because we have to pay more for them they automatically gain in value - so funny! Laughing

I particularly like their acknowledgement that we are now only likely to buy one bead. cyclops Such startling honesty.
