But Will It Make You Happy? A Loom?

I was browsing through the New York Times last Sunday when I came across an article, "But Will It Make You Happy?" It began describing a woman who had a lot of (a normal amount of) stuff and made a decent amount of money but was caught on the "work-spend treadmill" and so one day she began to give stuff away and live a simpler life.

The article went on to discuss the age old question... Does stuff make you happy? Researchers, according to this article, have discovered that there are several factors that contribute to what purchases make you happiest. Unsurprisingly, spending money on experiences rather than "things" make people happiest.

I started thinking about this in terms of Mirrix. Do Mirrix Looms make people happy?

It didn't take me long to realize... of course they do! Buying a Mirrix Loom is not just buying a THING, it's buying an EXPERIENCE. When you spend $155 on a loom you are both acquiring a thing and a lasting experience. It's the best of both worlds. You will find joy purchasing your new toy, in the process of weaving and with the result of your efforts.

Email me elena@mirrixlooms.com and let me know how Mirrix can make your loom buying and loom owning experience even better in order to make YOU, our loyal customers, even happier! And let me know... Does your loom make you happy?
