CQout Celebrates Tenth Birthday

CQout, the International online market place and auction community, has announced it is celebrating its tenth year as one of the UK’s premier online auction sites.

To coincide with the company’s birthday, CQout has announced the details of a special offer which will award a free shop front worth £110 to the first 10 sellers who list more than 100 items on the CQout site.

Siamak Bashi, Managing Director of CQout, said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating our tenth birthday and even happier to be able to offer the first ten sellers on the CQout site that list 100 items a free shop front to coincide with our birthday celebrations. After the support our customers have given us over the years, it’s nice to be able to give something back to them.”

CQout started 10 years ago, during a boom of online auction sites. Most of the big names, such as Yahoo, Virgin, Freeserve and QXL, all had an auction sites but, unlike its competitors, CQout, insisted on validating all users, buyers and sellers alike. This was the foundation stone of CQout site security from the beginning and still is today. The company’s aim was to create a secure environment in which buyers and sellers could trust that goods will be paid for and delivered and that frivolous bids would not be made. It also allowed CQout to identify “bad eggs” quickly and therefore effectively exclude them from future trading using the platform.

The building of a secure, trusted trading environment has meant CQout has not experienced the explosive growth seen by other auction sites but as history has now shown, the company did choose the right steady path to growth, as all the big names mentioned earlier are no longer operating auction sites in UK having found the business unsustainable, CQout continues to grow steadily and on a sound commercial basis. .

Children’s Clothes that Transition from Winter to Spring

Naartjie Kids, the original name in fun clothing sizes 0 – 10, announced the arrival of its Spring Transition Collection of kids clothing for boys, girls and infants. In addition, Naartjie has marked down its entire stock of winter fashions for savings of up to 40% off regular prices. The sale excludes essentials, with no adjustments on previous purchases.

“Naartjie Kids’ 2010 Spring Transition Collection is inspired by Western plaids and Mother Nature,” said Joe Norwood, director of marketing, Naartjie USA. “Girls’ and infant girls’ Spring Transition pieces combine soft, pretty plaids and denim for a modern cowgirl, prairie look. The infant boys’ clothing gets an updated Wild West look, while our boys clothing is inspired by nature elements: earth, wind, fire and water.”

Combining traditional western fabrications like plaids and denim and interpreting them into pretty, feminine silhouettes, the Girls’ Spring Transition pieces offer longer length prairie skirts and girls dresses, perfect for welcoming sunnier, yet still cool days. Pretty shades of pink and purple are reminiscent of the spring wild flowers that pop up after the ground thaws.

Earth, wind, fire, and water — four elements that are interpreted into bold and abstract graphic shapes in Naartjie Kids’ Boys Spring Transition pieces. Lightning strikes twice with two lightening bolt tees, a wind storm stirs things up on one bold graphic and the use of color in the line reflects the traditional shades associated with the elements; thunder grey, energy blue, earthy neutrals and fiery hues of red and orange. Baby boy clothes are derived from the Wild West, with denim, plaid fabrics and appliquéd badges in pale blue, beige and orange, for many mix and match options, for the cutest cowboys in town.

Between December 10, 2009 – December 16, 2009, Naartjie is offering a Kids Kash coupon for $20 off a future $50 purchase, with every $50 purchase. Coupons may be redeemed December 26, 2009 – January 14, 2010.

Naartjie Kids’ designs, colors, prints, and styles represent a truly unique synthesis of European fashion trends with western casual lifestyle. Featuring a dominant focus on natural fabrics that are garment-dyed, pre-washed and pre-shrunk for easy wear, low maintenance and comfort, Naartjie Kids uses a garment dye process that results in a more vibrant color and softer clothing and accessories for precious little ones.
