Unfortunately, due to rising material costs, JaxWhirligigs will be raising some prices effective on June 07, 2021…
The reason we are posting this now is we will be selling our remaining $15.00 stock between now and June 6. This includes Small Manatees, Small Flying Pigs, Goldfinches, Bluebirds, Baby Turtles, Baby Frogs and Dragonflies… We have a decent number of Small Manatees, Baby Turtles and Baby Frogs on hand and now would be the time to grab one or more of these, soon to be extinct, $15.00 Whirligigs.
Other prices will be affected but the most imact will be that our lowest cost Whirligigs will be $20.00 after Jun 6, 2021. While we have seen some increases in prices in previous years, we were hit with large increases in the last few months, for our Hardware and PVC poles. Our nylon parts saw a 100% increase and 25 to 40% increases for our screws and PVC poles. Wood prices have been creeping up as well (some sizes more than others). This has simply made a $15.00 Whirligig untenable.
As many of you know JaxWhirligigs is a Hobby/Business (more Hobby), and we have always strived to provide folks access to real Handcrafted, Solid Wood, Whirligigs at the lowest cost possible. Winged Whirligigs are a dying Folk Art and we know that many folks haven’t seen Whirligigs in decades, and most Children have never seen one, until they come across JaxWhirligigs. I have always felt we are helping to keep this dying Folk Art alive and we will do all we can to keep our prices as low as possible, however I can’t give Whirligigs away…
After June 6th we will have a new Line up of $20.00 Whirligigs, we will be continuing to make our small Manatees, Dolphins, Ladybugs, Dragonflies and Small Flying Pigs with no change, however our Bluebirds, Goldfinches, Baby Turtles and Baby Frogs will be redesigned to be approximately 20% larger..
Other prices will also have to be raised, however they are individual, based on actual costs and time involved for each Whirligig and on June 7, 2021 our website will be updated to reflect any and all changes. Selene and I reviewed each and every Whirligig we make to arrive at the fairest price for each.
Selene and I want to thank all of our friends and fellow Whirligig Lovers out there for your continued support and we hope to see you at one of the remaining Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Markets this season, until then… Keep your Whirligigs Spinning 😉
