Arden's General Store contained new, like-new and used merchandise, collectibles, hard cover & paperback books, antiques, holiday gifts and decorations, odds & ends, and what have you. Two homes and a store were consolidated and provided much to be sold. Arden's General Store was an online retail outlet for Arden Services. We accepted links to other merchandise for sale from trusted sources, and such sales are from the source identified—taxes, if any, are identified by that source. We no longer accept consignment items.

Apr 24, 2014 1:27:05 PM — Arden's General Store is now an online Yard Sale

Effective immediately Arden's General Store no longer exists per se. The merchandise is still available, but now this is a virtual yard sale. Some things to keep in mind as you browse the merchandise offered:
     1) If you are from Pennsylvania and the item shows a sales tax Add-to-cart button ignore it. I am in the process of removing them, but it is time consuming and error prone.
     2) If you think the price stated is too high, send an email to me with your offer to purchase. I may accept your offer, or I may not.
     3) If you have any questions, comments, or whatever, send an email to me.

Jun 18, 2013 — Add to Cart button error

ATTENTION: I just learned today that some of the shopping cart buttons "Add to Cart" are not working properly and cause an error when clicked on. If you attempt to make a purchase and get an error, please use the Contact Us link at the left and send us an email. Please identify the item by name and Item # that you wish to purchase. I can still sell the item(s) to you, it just won't be quite as automated. NOTE 6/20/13: I fixed a couple buttons that I found were improperly coded, and spot-checked many others. I think all the buttons now work properly.

Thank you GM.
It's always much appreciated when a customer to my online store takes the time to send a letter. The letter itself was quite unique! I enjoyed it. Thanks again GM, and I certainly appreciate your kind words.

Thursday, August 23, 2012 — The bargain's over. :-(

The collectible Playboy and other magazines at up to $50% off with FREE S&H has ended. This deal not only ended, but we have returned the magazines to the consignor who, I believe, is intending to auction them off.

Saturday, July 21, 2012 — What a Bargain!

A super special! We've been authorized to sell collectible Playboy and other magazines at up to $50% off with FREE S&H. This deal could end at any time without notice, so Buy Now to be sure to save!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011 — Minimal Sales

What an economy! In order to try to help promote sales we have not increased postage on existing merchandise for at least two years. (Newer items added have current postal rates.) However, despite not increasing postage rates, sales have become virtually non-existant! I hope this holiday season some people will once again begin purchasing from Arden's General Store.

Is there anything I can do to encourage shoppers? Your reply will be considered. No sarcastic suggestions please. :-)

Tuesday, March 30, 2010 — No Credit Cards

Sorry, but we have suspended acceptance of credit cards, except through PayPal. Why? We have to pay a fee for the right to accept credit cards whether we process any charges or not. Due to the excessively slow economy and lack of any sales, let alone charge sales, we decided to suspend acceptance of credit cards, at least temporarily. If the economy picks up, or we begin getting more requests for charge sales, we may re-institute acceptance of cards.
     Remember! Paypal accepts most any credit card and you can even pay by electronic check through Paypal. Best news—you do not have to join Paypal to pay using their service!

Tuesday, March 09, 2010 — Slow Sales

Starting over a year ago sales began slowing. They have slowed now to very few. What can I do to help potential customers become customers?

Thanks for any imput you may provide.

Saturday, January 17, 2009 / Monday, June 01, 2009 — Postage Increase — Here we go again! (revised 6/1/09)

On January 18, 2009, the U.S. Postal Service once again raised postage rates for packages (First Class went up in May). We DID NOT raise our shipping & handling (S&H) last time,and did not raise them now. However, new items added after the postage increases went into effect do have the higher postage included.

Hi, Arden !
It was a pleasure (and easy) shopping at your store.
I don't buy that much on-line; but I will save your website for future references.
Thanks for the good service.

Thank you WM.
When working in a brick 'n mortar store you get to interact with your customers. It's always much appreciated when a customer to an online store takes the time to send a personal communication. Thanks again, WM, and I certainly appreciate your kind words.

Wednesday, May 14, 2008 — Postage Increase — revised Thursday, November 13, 2008

On May 12, 2008, the U.S. Postal Service once again raised postage rates. We considered this, but DID NOT raise our shipping & handling (S&H). Save gas and save money—order now to avoid a postage increase in case we change our mind! (Amended 12/13/08: Items added after May 12, 2008 use the new postage rates.)
