Addi CLICKS
There is an Illinois yarn shop (FiberWild) that has the full set of Addi CLICKS on sale for $149.95.
Her set has 10 sizes, including the US5, and the new soft-sided envelope case. Free shipping to locations within the USA. I see that she has 6 units in stock.

Click here if you are interested!

On the other hand, my LYS sells them for $169.95 plus State Sales Tax.
She promised that the new shipments of Addi Clicks will see at least a $10 increase this year.

I think $149 range is the LOWEST price we are ever going to see for authentic Addi CLICKS, distributed by the authorized USA Dealer, Skacel.

Beware of "knock offs" from China (as seen on Ebay)!

This is our standard price for the addi Click set, as well, while supplies last!

Hi Evelyn!

Thanks for adding your link for the Addi CLICKS at such a great price! I see that you also include FREE SHIPPING! I checked out your website, and noted that you ALSO have the US10.5 tips! Although they're not included in the CLICK set, at least we can purchase them separately! Yay!

My LYS is charging $169.95 for the Addi CLICKS set!

Perhaps FiberWild.com states that $149.95 is a SALE PRICE (for them) because they are a "brick and mortar" establishment.

Is your shop online only?

Perhaps FiberWild.com is using "Sale Price" as a marketing device?

Actually the wholesale price (and thus the retail price) of the Click sets have gone up. So that is why my price is for current stock only. As soon as I need to re-order from the distributor, the new supply may need to be priced higher.

Perhaps the words "Sale Price" are a marketing device, but so are a lot of words in any "ad", eh? Being in direct sales for 30 years, I can tell you...most ads are filled with buzz words that are designed to create 'need' and 'urgency'!

Ah well, so what? As long as the facts of the product are accurately portrayed, I'm good with SALE! ONLY! ONE TIME! HURRY! WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! and other language designed to excite us to action!

I do believe her price of $149.95 is truly a sale price, coming from her brick-and-mortar yarn shop. Typically, the brick-and-mortar HAS TO charge more to pay for the rent, lights, and hired help! They can barely compete in the marketplace anymore, with online sales killing them! My LYS is selling Addi Clicks for $169.95...with the promise that her next shipment will be priced $10 higher, as you also stated.

I think the price of $149 will be the LOWEST price we will EVER SEE on Addi Clicks anywhere. It's all uphill from there. The price should stabilize somewhere under $200...and hopefully at the $179 range!

Want to say that I ordered my Addi CLICKS on Jan 3rd...and they arrived at my door today,
Jan 6th...all the way from Galena, Illinois! Now THAT is great shipping and customer service.

Yeah, I guess that's an admission that I caved in and purchased the set!
A single pair of Addi US9 "set circs" sold me on the new blue cord!

This was a gift from me to me. Sometimes that's what it takes! They will get good use!

After reading many of the posts on this forum, I have decided my DH can give me the Addi Clicks for my birthday. If the shipping is as quick as yours, Art Lady, they should even be here before my birthday. I cannot wait!!!!

OK, I've ordered them, now the waiting will kill me, but I can make it 3 or 4 days. Thanks for the great site. I live in the Southeast so I'm hoping shipping time will be about the same.
