The Store and Services section of this website was created in conjunction with the Home School, Health=Wealth, and About Us (About Home and School Solutions) sections. These four parts form the business hub, if you will, of this website. The Desktop Publishing section may eventually join the hub; in the meantime it will serve as an information section. Clearly these are the most important parts of this website from a business standpoint. We hope you will find them informative and user-friendly.
Over the course of the Lacelle family's homeschooling years, Connie created a number of products for the home school market and marketed them through her first website, Connie's Quick Computers. In 2008 she closed that website, updated all of the files to reflect our new business name, added a few more products, put the products into every format/version feasible (paper, e-mailed, complete, reproducible, PDF, document templates, etc.), and created a new order form so as to offer our customers maximum options. All the while building this new website; it was a very busy year!
So, how can you buy from us?
The add-to-cart buttons for the various product options have been included in this website in three ways. They add products to the same PayPal shopping cart, so you can use all of them if you wish.
There is an individual page (see sample) for each format/version of each product, and you can get to it from a number of places--including the Connie's Products page and the PayPal Store pages. Each individual product page provides links where you can get more information. If you choose to purchase the item while you are on this individual product page, you can click on the add-to-cart button for either Canada or continental U.S. (Notice the cute little Canadian flag and American flag shopping cart buttons!) In case you don't live in either place, a link to a contact page is provided; you can use this to request shipping costs for your location.
If you select the item and then choose to continue shopping, PayPal will return you to the individual product page and you will need to click the back button to return to the page you started on. You could go to the Store & Services Section Map or to the Home School Section Map to find links to more products, or go directly to the Connie's Products page or to the PayPal Store page. These are quicker options, especially if you already have a good idea what you want.
There are two PayPal Store pages--one for residents of Canada, and one for residents of continental U.S. There are separate pages because shipping rates to the two countries are different. (Besides, each store page can load twice as fast as the two combined!) In case you don't live in either place, a link to a contact page is provided; you can use this to request shipping costs for your location. After you click the PayPal Store link in the left column of any Home School or Store & Services page (or anywhere else you find it on this website), you must select either the PayPal Store for Canada or the PayPal Store for Continental U.S. page link. You can't miss these links; they are accompanied by flying flags!
The products are included in a table on each PayPal store page, which allows you to see everything at a glance. You can see thumbnail images, visit general information pages for each category (Lesson Planner, ICANSPELL, etc.), and click on links to individual product pages (described above) to get more information. (Click the back button to return.) If you choose to purchase an item while on this PayPal store page, you can click on the cute little Canadian flag or American flag add-to-cart button. When the item has been added to the PayPal shopping cart and if you choose to continue shopping, you will then be returned to the store page where you can select another product.
Please note that the French Lesson Supplements are not included on the PayPal Store pages. If you wish to purchase one of them, visit the Connie's Products page or find its individual product page.
Connie's Products page lists all of the versions of all the products in a simple list format. Just scroll down the page until you find what you want. If you know what product category (Lesson Planner, ICANSPELL, etc.) you are looking for, you can use the Quick Jump links to get there faster. Then click on the add-to-cart text link for either Canada or continental U.S. to purchase an item. (Notice the cute little Canadian flag and American flag shopping carts!) In case you don't live in either place, links to a contact page are provided; you can use these to request shipping costs for your location.
You can get more information about a product by clicking on the link (which serves as the title for the section) provided next to the little circle. It will take you to an individual product page (described above). If you prefer to purchase from the Connie's Products page, just click the back button until you return to it and click on the add-to-cart link there. When the item has been added to the PayPal shopping cart and if you choose to continue shopping, you will then be returned to the Connie's Products page where you can select another item. This is the quickest option, especially if you wish to purchase French Lesson Supplements.
Some folks prefer not to buy anything online or to use PayPal or a credit card, so we have created PDF order forms they can print off and mail to us with their cheque or money order. (Please do not send cash in the mail.) The front of each form contains contact information, a list of product categories, and some brief instructions. The back lists the available products in chart form so all you need to do is find those you wish to purchase and indicate the quantity required--then calculate the totals and mail the form to us with payment in Canadian funds. I would suggest you make a photocopy of the completed order form (back and front) for your own records before you mail it to us.
You will need to check the shipping/handling chart for your country (Canada or Continental U.S.) for the shipping costs. If you are purchasing several different products I can probably reduce your shipping costs, and I am more than happy to do so. If you live outside of Canada and continental U.S., I will have to calculate shipping/handling costs for your package. Please ask! In either case (and/or if you need more information than the Purchase Information page provides) you may contact me by e-mail or by using a contact form.
As a complementary service, more than anything, to Rosetta Stone French language software users, I added the French Lesson Supplements to my official product list at the end of 2008. This put me in the position of needing to create a new brochure/order form combination--an actual catalogue. But there isn't time to create that right now, so we are functioning with two order forms--one for French Lesson Supplements and one for everything else.
All of our products except for the French Lesson Supplements are listed on the main product brochure and order form. If you do not wish to purchase French Lesson Supplements, this brochure and order form are the only ones you need.
If you wish to purchase French Lesson Supplements you will need to use this order form. Notice that this is actually a combination brochure/order form that includes a brief description and a shipping/handling chart as well as the ordering space. If you do not wish to order anything else, this form is the only one you need.
However, if you wish to purchase French Lesson Supplements plus something from the main product list--you will need to use both forms, and add the totals from both forms together on the French Lesson Supplement order form.
We have a number of used curriculum and miscellaneous used items for sale. If you are interested in any of them you will need to contact us regarding their availability and to ask for the shipping/handling charge for mailing to your particular location. There is no problem purchasing used items along with our products. Just provide us with your complete list.
Because we pass PayPal charges along to customers who use PayPal, we will need to know how you intend to pay for the purchase before we can figure out your total. If you wish to use PayPal, I will create a buy now button and send it to your e-mail address.
You will no doubt see that we have a Juice Plus banner ad on most pages of this website. Clicking on that will take you to a page of links where you can get more information about the Juice Plus products, of which we are distributors. Regulations are very tight these days about what a distributor can and cannot say about health supplements, so we are not permitted to write our own product information web pages or literature. We do have a supply of professionally printed brochures and audio materials available to send you. If you do not live near me, we can chat live in my room on Paltalk. If you are in our local area, we can arrange a personal visit.
If you need further information, please contact me! Everything is negotiable...
