Despite all of the thousands of products we have available at QVC there are still a few that I covet so much more than all the rest of them. Possibly my most coveted of all (and it has been for some time) is the Dyson AM09 Hot and Cool fan. This Sunday I will be launching it as our Today’s Special Value offer and I can’t wait.
First and foremost, it is the design, innovation and engineering that has gone into it that really appeals, almost in the same way (and for the same reason) that Apple products appeal to so many of us.
When I see the Dyson brand name I feel more relaxed about my purchase, which is really important to me because I am my mother’s son and never buy anything until I am sure it is good value, robustly made, and is going to be up to the task for which it has been purchased.
Mum, being on her own after dad passed away so suddenly and with four small children to take care of, didn’t have the time or the money to spend willy-nilly on fad items or anything that wouldn’t prove to be worth every single penny she spent on it and more! I’m happy that growing up, watching my mum handle the finances, has left me of the same frame of mind. I, for one, am thankful to my mum for teaching me this! She was old-school and still is, and now I am too.
So today when I see something that I like or I want I still stop and ask myself a few basic questions handed down from mother to son:
- Is it well made?
- Will it do the job it’s supposed to do?
- Will it do more than you expect, making it even better value for money?
- Will it stand the test of time?
With respect to the Dyson AM09 I have to say a resounding YES to all of the above!!
On top of that it also appeals to my sense of the aesthetic – which I can confidently say is more than enough for my mother to commit to a purchase! I love beautiful things. I love fashion, style, paintings, sculpture, anything that has a beautiful shape and form to it. The Dyson AM09 does not disappoint in this area either.
So not only will it be incredibly functional in my home, it will also sit easily with my decor and look attractive – especially as I envisage it being out year-round, rather than stored in a cupboard and only brought out when absolutely needed. And because it has both warm and cool functions it takes up less space than separate heaters and fans!
It may be wrong to covet thy neighbour but having asked all the right questions, I see nothing wrong in coveting the Dyson AM09! It’s more than up to the job; I actually think it’s kind of beautiful too!
Join me on Saturday night at midnight for the launch of our Today’s Special Value.
Until next time,
