Folksy Ltd

Is BOGOF a rude word?


(Grimm Exhibition) #1

Im having a BOGOF sale on my mounted prints so I was thinking about adding search words and thought adding BOGOF to the title would be a good thing.
I just made my own search and only 3 items came up in the whole of Folksy with BOGOF in it. 2 of the items were mine!!
Is BOGOF a faux pas? Should I remove it?

It makes me think more of double glazing adverts and cheap supermarkets than desirable handmade crafts if I’m honest! lol

It says cheap to me and I really don’t like acronyms myself and the BOGOF to me isn’t the nicest of things to say. I prefer Buy One Get On Free it sounds so much nicer.

I don’t think it’s appropriate somehow when it comes to art/handmade; so many people struggle to charge properly for their work and running discounts and sales just takes us back to the bargain basement, handmade=homemade=cheap feeling.

Oops.I shall change wording immediately

Words changed and I did another search. Loads of items come up. Thanks for your opinions.
