Wind chimes in winter

Carolyn | Thursday, January 24, 2013 in Chime info, News | Comments (0)

snowychime2Perfect poem for this snowy day here at BuyChimes…

“In winter’s cold and sparkling snow,
The garden in my mind does grow.
I look outside to blinding white,
And see my tulips blooming bright.
And over there a sweet carnation,
Softly scents my imagination…”
-Cheryl Magic-Lady, Winter Garden

To be sure, spring is just a few months away! But for now, this Corinthian Bells 36-inch wind chime looks great nestled under a cap of snow.

Happy for all seasons,

Corinthian Bells wind chimes: a gift of love

Carolyn | Wednesday, January 16, 2013 in Chime info, Gift info | Comments (0)

Did you know… All Corinthian Bells wind chimes come with a little black “hang tag” located right above the wind sail at the bottom of the chime. This tag is a little booklet filled with helpful information. It tell you what chime you’ve purchased (probably the best info, right?!), the scale to which it is hand-tuned, warranty information and descriptive language about Corinthian Bells chimes. So it’s all really helpful – and customers usually keep the tag handy for future reference.

CBtag

But the best part: on the back of this tag, under the UPC label, you’ll find this:“So faith, hope and love abide, these three, but the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13.” This is the reason Corinthian Bells chimes are named what they are. And this is the reason they make a delightful gift for someone you love.

Call us at 877-293-6395 if we can help you pick out the perfect Corinthian chime!

How to Protect your Wind Chime in Winter

Carolyn | Saturday, November 17, 2012 in Chime info, News | Comments (0)

During Hurricane Sandy, a number of customers called regarding what to do to protect their wind chimes. While all the chimes that we sell are made for year-round, outdoor use, certainly common sense should prevail when gale-force winds, whether with rain or snow, are predicted.

It is recommended that you take your chime down in high winds – and the same holds true for severe snow storms. Customers in the Northeast, Upper MidWest and Pacific Northwest often comment that they put their chime in the garage or shed during the winter months, simply to prolong its beauty for the summer months. Good idea!

Here in Virginia, we have a temperate climate, so most wind chimes are absolutely fine to be outside hanging year-round. Mine sure are! And it’s lovely to see the snow create beautiful, artistic patterns on the top crown and tubes – only to quickly melt away, usually within a day.

What do you do with your chimes in winter? We’d love to hear!

Summer vacation

Carolyn | Monday, August 13, 2012 in the company | Comments (0)

BuyChimes will be closed next week. We’re a small family business and we greatly cherish time spent with family and friends. Whether or not summer vacation means a trip or days spent at home, everyone deserves time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Which is why we simply close for a week every summer. Truly, our customers know exactly what we mean!

George Washington was spot-on perfect when he said, “I’d rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world.”

It’s during these “farm” moments that we’re better able to serve as “emperor.” For those who read this blog regularly (and of course, we do hope there are many of you!), you certainly know of my deep admiration for George Washington. In many, many ways, his life inspires and prompts me to greater thought and higher action.

Practically speaking – this simply means that all orders placed after Wednesday, August 15 will ship on Monday, August 27. We’ll be back soon!
