1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Buyer Frustrated With Communication. on: December 27, 2010 11:07:22 AM
Sent her a convo telling her how much I liked the painting, that I would purchase from her again


She lost a return customer.

I don't quite understand why you are being so sensitive. I also have my own business, not in the crafts industry but I deal with a lot of different people. Some reply after receiving files from me, some don't. Some just send me a check without a word. Etc. No harm done, business has been done, let's move on.

I think maybe you wanted to receive multiple messages from her, stating how grateful she is that you purchased from her? Or what would those additional messages need to convey, since all helpful info about the product was already exchanged?

Plus there is one oddity (see quote above). If you already stated you liked the painting and you'd buy from her again, why did you just tell us otherwise? Just based on lack of reply? I agree maybe ONE simple thank you was missing from the communication, but not necessarily so. I think the change of opinion from "I would buy from her again!" to "she has lost a customer" just based on the lac of a two-word message is pretty unreasonable. So did you like the painting or not really? Let's not get paranoid with the whole "customer is always boss" thing...

May I kindly ask how you sew the spaces/cutouts at the "a" and the "e"? Is there a special technique? I just can't figure it out....

Oh and those are sewn shut by hand after the pillow is stuffed:)

I really like the bookmark, I think I will make myself a similar one Smiley I also like the wordplay "Purple Reign" - very cool!

If I was the bf [I understand you're not engaged right?] and stumbled upon this book I'd be a tad creeped out--- did you consider him while crafting or just what YOUR dreams/plans are? E.g. what if you find out he despises the color lavender?  Huh

Wow this dress is really sophisticated and well-made! Good job!

How old is your daughter who's going to wear it? I'm asking because props to you for making her fashion-conscious. There's no way my little girl [5] would wear something gray and of this shape Undecided
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: How much would you pay for a set of twig crayons? on: November 07, 2009 08:41:20 AM
I'd appreciate the "cuteness" and ecological aspect of the crayons but [as your marketing target - mom of 5- and 7-yr old coloring maniacs who go through boxes and boxes of crayons] I'd say I most likely wouldn't buy them. I have no tools at hand to whittle crayons with [I imagine a kitchen knife won't do]; it's way messier than a sharpener and the kids can't do it by themselves.

I am also pretty crafty myself but I don't use crayons.

Well since babies take a while to grow up Wink maybe an interview with someone else would be possible in the meantime? I've followed the interviews with great interest as I am a business owner myself [not in the craft industry though].

Thanks! I think the reason for Polish people not knowing these traditions is that among my generation [I am 33 but during my 20s I lived in PL - many of my peers got married then] people tend to go away from them and they're still alive [the traditions Wink ]more in small villages and rural areas than in big cities [where I grew up] where people just want to have simpler weddings with less vodka Wink

Also, some traditions are very much regional.

Also, people living in tight-knit emigrant communities [like many Polish ones in America are] tend to stay more traditional than the people left in the old country. I can see that somewhat in the Arizona Polish store when I observe older ladies' clothing and haircuts Wink

We did the bread and salt thing [no wine though].
