When I grew up we had a great
company called the T. Eaton Company founded in 1899. There were
Canadian owned and at one time employed 70,000 full and part time
Canadians in stores all across Canada. But sadly after 130 years
they closed and went out of business in 1999.
Eaton's had a lot of really
good ideas and one of them was their SURPRISE DAY SALES.
Customers loved them and they used those days to move inventory
which was building up or not selling. So everyone was happy. They
did not make a profit on those items but they did recover some of
their funds so that they could re-invest in new products. Their
customers loved obtaining quality goods at very low prices!
So I decided to try out the
idea on NorthTreasure.com. I hope that you enjoy it!
Unlike a department store
located in one location and only open a few hours each day our
website is open 24 hours a day in all locations around the world.
So we decided to have an open Surprise Day Sale rather than have
it on just one day. What we will do is change the stock over
time. And the stock is limited often one of a kind items. So
it is the old "first come first served" sale.
Here is our first item for
POPPY SEEDS HALF
PRICE!! INCLUDES SHIPPING AND HANDLING
seed packages!! great prices!!!
acquired a very good supply of Poppy seeds from British
Columbia. Enough to grow tens of thousands of plants or more!
But stupid me did I ask what TYPE of poppy these were? NOT. My big
fear of course was that the damn seeds being from BC were papaver
somniferum the Opium Poppy. This would have been a big mistake
as I would end up in the big house for many years with a cell mate
called Bubba-Joe. So not being entirely stupid I test germinated
some seeds last year to see what would happen.
did germinate nicely and I was treated to a very attractive pink
poppy that I would guess might be the the Eschscholzia
Californic -the California Poppy because they looked very
were about 10" high. They looked very nice!
Thank God the Opium poppy did not
make its appearance.
I have packaged
the poppies so that you have approximately 1000 seeds to the
package which should give you more than enough to plant in your
garden or field. if you check around you will see that poppy seeds
are often packaged with only 50 or 100 seeds per packet so the
package we are selling is 10 or 20 times the size of an average
package! They like to charge about $5 a package with shipping so
if you purchased 1000 seeds from them it would cost you up
to$100.00. We are offering them to you at 75% off!! Not bad
are a very attractive plant. They grow well in a group and some
people claim that poppy's will bring you luck in money love and
health. Who knows? They might. I just claim that they look great
in a garden! Poppy's are also known as a mystical herb and I
suppose that would relate to the papaver somniferum type which is
used to produce opium which will most certainly cause you to think
you are on the moon or some other spot in outer space. I am not
into that mystical herb bit either and all I say here is that
poppy's are a very nice flower and our packages will allow you to
grow more than you ever wanted. You could even share them with
your family and friends and every time they look at the poppies
they will think of what a fine person you are.
The link below
shows you how to plant poppy seeds. Pay attention to the point
about not planting them too close together and the fact that they
don't transplant well. When you plant them too close together
(like I did) they come up in a bunch and you need to thin them out
so that they will grow. The reason for this is that they
have one big tap root and if you try and transplant the suckers
you ruin the root. So they grow best where you plant the seed.
They also adapt well to all climates. They need soil that is loose
or tilled not firmly packed. (easy just use a shovel and mix up
the ground a bit) Poppies are very easy to grow and care for and
the price.1000 POPPY
DAY SALE PRICE $12.50
CDN for 1000 poppy
seeds and that includes shipping and handling and postage!!

is an interesting watch! Notice the diamonds in the bracelet? Are
they really diamonds? They look like diamonds! I don't think they
are diamonds. The watch has a solid feel to it. It has a silver
plated finish with some wear showing but it still looks pretty
good. The bracelet hinges open so it can fit most women's wrists
and it is easy to get into. This Terner watch has a Singapore
movement. That is a higher quality than some others like some of
the watches from China and if you check them out you will find
that Terner watches have a good reputation.
were going to ask $50 for this watch because we thought that was
fair! But then we decided that if we were having a Suprise Sale we
may as well surprise our customers so we decided to cut the price
by 50% to $25 cdn. It will cost about $13 to ship it but we
decided to surprise you again so we will only charge half that
$6.50 and to surprise you more we will include a free gift with it
too. Then carried a bit away I thought why not include a small
girl's watch too and make that free! So we did that too!
these are re-cycled watches! They are all cleaned, the batteries
are replaced with fresh ones and they are tested and work well. I think that you
will enjoy this watch! We just have one.
