Last week I put a profile of a Phoenix Card trader up on the blog. Phoenix cards are sold through local traders often at school fairs, nurseries, fetes or home sales. They sent me a selection of their cards to review as a result of this profiling, to see what I thought.
The quality is lovely, good thick card and I think unbelievably good value at just £1-£1,20 a card. My favourites are definately the butterly and the Russian dolls. My son loved the pop up racing car and my daughter the fairy cakes and fairy… (it must be nature vs nurture I bought her up with trains to play with!)
The cards cost between £1.00 and £1.20, which is a great price in a competitive market.
For you to purchase the cards, you need to contact a local Trader in their area. Not putting them into shops is how they keep their costs low. . If you don’t know your local Traders you can contact Phoenix Trading directly through their website www.phoenix-trading.co.uk and they will let you know who your local trader is.
We make a lot of our own cards in this house and this is great fun to do with kids and can be a cheap option. But I have to say I am loving the qaulity and prices of Phoenix cards. Their stationary, particularly their notecards are gorgeous too!
Working for Phoenix
In order to become a Phoenix Trader, you would need to contact a local Trader. They would act as your sponsor and introduce you to the business and offer guidance and support. Becoming an independent Trader only costs £45 and this includes a business kit to get you started. 73% of new Traders also buy a Special Introductory Offer starter pack to make sure their business gets off to the best start. New Traders can always discuss with their sponsors about which pack is best suited to them. Once you have set up as a Trader, you can put in as many hours as you want to. There is an opportunity for you to earn a helpful extra income by working part-time or you can develop a full-time business. Truly a perfect job for mums.
