What is The Dealie Llama?
The Dealie Llama is a family run business based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and works just like Zulily. Never heard of them? Go here to see.
Didn't look, did you? You order and pay. We compile and order in bulk. You get stuff cheaper.
What's up with the Facebook only login?
As a local growing company, we still currently rely on Facebook for discussions about product and brand suggestions and picking up Llama Loot. The Herd is a Facebook group for the Dealie Llama community and is recommended to join.
Dealie Llama does not post to your Facebook. The only info we have is your Facebook user name, your sign-in email address, and your ID number (what FB uses to say that you exist). We do NOT get your password.
Why can't I buy stuff this cheap without The Dealie Llama?
Many suppliers are not licensed to sell to end consumers and the Dealie Llama bridges that gap for you.
Okay, so how do you get stuff cheaper?
The same way other folks do... Research, hard work, and cost cutting.
Does cost cutting mean you have crappy customer service?
Nope... Mama Llama is actually quite nice and works very hard for happy customers.
Our biggest cost savings for our buyers are NO brick and mortar store and NO shipping.
Uh... how would I ever get the stuff I bought if you don't ship?
You just need to pop by the west side of Calgary in Signal Hill. When product comes in, you may find it helpful to post in The Herd to converse with other buyers to combine forces.
I don't live in Calgary, but I like your stuff. Will you ship to me?
Llamas are smart and will lay down if the load they are carrying is too heavy. Mama Llama has priorities.
The real answer is: The Dealie Llama is a local company with a focus on local market. In addition, shipping out of province or out of country has tax implications that we don't want to deal with.
How does Dealie Llama decide what to sell?
Quality, Canadian, local suppliers to the top of the list. If we can't find that, well-reasearched suppliers and manufacturer direct is sourced.
A variety of factors are also considered including:
- ability to offer buyers an excellent price,
- interest of buyers in a given product, and
- recognition in the Calgary, Alberta market.
Of course, the most important consideration is whether a llama would spit on it. We'd never sell product like that.
What kind of stuff does The Dealie Llama sell?
Tuffo for Active Families, Slugs & Snails tights for girls AND boys, Alberta-based Happy Hippo Bath products ... just to name a few. To see all previous buys, just login and look for "Previous Buys" under the Buys menu.
I want Dealie Llama to sell my product!
