Exciting times at BCG Patches! I launched the first Patch Program a few weeks ago... wow, looking at the date, it's been 4 weeks ago now. In the beginning I had ordered what  I thought was plenty of patches and did pre-orders. The Pre-orders did well and sold about half of the initial order. Then, the patches arrived. I shared photos of the actual patch. I personally think it was the photo of the patch in the sunlight that caught attention. This patch just shimmers in the sunlight. The stitching is gorgeous!!



So, the patches arrive. I post a few little photos and it sold out in 5 hours. We're talking about over 600 patches in less than 5 hours. 



Astonishing!! Simply... ASTONISHING!!

So, I ordered more. A lot more. At least I thought it was a lot more. That was last Thursday. The re-order is supposed to arrive around May 12th.

Now, let's fast forward to present... remember that additional large order placed last week... yeah... I'm currently down to about 130 patches available out of that shipment. Again... astonished.

At this point, I'm faced with a dilemma and I'm not sure there is a "correct answer". I know there are leaders out there who are waiting until Fall to order patches for their troop. They don't want to order 1 for each girl and then only have 50% or less complete it. I understand that. They are using resources wisely and being good stewards with the troop money. But, it puts me in a position where I'm not sure what to do. Do I order more... do I not order more... do I feel the market has been saturated and most people that want the patches have them... how do I read the world's mind..... That's my ultimate question... 

For right now, I have patches available and the website will be updated if they sell out. My advice would be... if you want them, get them... like NOW. 

And I'll go try to read the world's mind and figure out what I'm going to do about placing another order or not placing one... 



I do have my 2nd patch program launching next week.
