Well, these ones especially. That magnificent magazine The Oldie runs weekly giveaway prizes, and you can land yourself some rewarding goodies by entering. (The Oldie magazine, by the way, is a kind of Punch meets Private Eye and spawns Huff Post for those who have no time for bullshit. Satire and irony are high on the ingredient list and old age is targeted by and for the contributors. A refreshing publication in a world of sycophancy. I recommend it.)
The point is, keep an eye on the page offering these giveaways over the next few weeks as several items from our Pipeline Press shelves are being dangled as prizes. At the moment, Organs and Organists: Their Inside Stories is one little offering (ends tomorrow Thursday, I think, but best go and do it now while you can) and others, which include Organ-isms: Anecdotes from the World of the King of Instruments and Martin Setchell's CD Cardboard Cathedral Organ Capers are coming along shortly. So bookmark the page and check back. Remember the old adage about mouths and gift horses...
Look at these fantastic discounts from Zazzle shops below (not from just our Organs store, but anything on Zazzle.) !. I'm spoilt for choice myself but think I might go for some cards. Ummmm maybe the playing cards... um errrrr, too much choice! Actually, I DO have a heap of calendars to still send out so I guess that's where I'll be heading.
Zip on over to those links, because there's not often a better deal. Besides, anything is better than fighting Christmas traffic...
Below: just a couple of excellent bargains that buyers in our organgifts.com shop got for themselves yesterday.
At this time of year - and not just on Black Friday - Zazzle showers the shoppers at Zazzle with great bargains, if you know where to look! Coupons appear on zazzle.com/coupons which make a huge difference to the total cost. But remember that this is for the dot.com site and the other Zazzle sites around the world have their own copupons and discounts which can be quite different. . Check your order carefully! So get going now and get those Christmas presents sorted early.
Delighted to find that a large print of the Sydney Town Hall Hill pipe organ has been sold to a buyer in Minnesota. I can see why this angle appeals - the pipes look huge in comparision with the organist below them - and indeed they are! It really makes a statement about how large organs can be, and just how beautifully decorated and encased the pipes often are.
