  3. Amazing, Me and the wife bought our first house in March 1993 and we bought a sky dish and watched QVC from the start and been buying ever still. We love it. Keep doing the good work and bless Julia Roberts I remember the other older guest’s. Used to love Harry Green DIY

    1. Hi Darren
      For a minute I thought you were going to say you bought your house from QVC – I was going to say, I don’t remember that!
      We all used to love Harry Greene.
      I hope you’ll keep watching and shopping with us
      Love

  4. I recorded the first three hours of QVC on VHS which I transferred to DVD a few years ago. I think my first purchase was a pack of Space Bags, the storage bags you sucked the air out of with a vacuum cleaner. They were quite a new invention back then.

    I don’t suppose Julia remembers, but she was demonstrating a Goblin vacuum cleaner once and it blew up, but she carried on regardless. I wish I had been recording that show.

    1. Hi Roger
      So you must have Jon Briggs and Katy John on your DVD recording and maybe Kara Tritton? I think my first full hour was the next day – it was definitely jewellery.
      I don’t remember the vacuum cleaner blowing up, but glad Icarried on regardless 😊
      Love
