IT Girl Loom band magazine late to the party

itgirlloomThe It Girl Loom band magazine is months too late to connect with the rapidly fading Loom band craze. Many of us were in this space last year and are now out with the market more than saturated. Also, we were making 50% and 69% GP and not the 25% we get on magazines. I suspect this magazine will be early returned.

    Loom bands done and dusted , so happy I never followed through on the last order . It was one of those things that went from hot to cold within a week .

    Shaun what’s fascinating is I was talking to a newsagent earlier this week who is just getting into them as the craze has just hit their town. They’re pretty isolated so I think it’s an exception.

    Things are a bit slow reaching FNQ. Kids have gone crazy on them in recent weeks and I can’t get enough. I have sold our of the kits and need to order again. Buying them from TNW. Does anyone recommend any other supplier.

    We were a bit late getting in, too. have dedicated an end to them. Both boards and bands still going well for us. Sold all my IT Girl mags, hoping for a few more. I think this will last at least until the end of school hols.
