shsupernova: I love your booties! I don't think they are too girly for a baby boy if they pick a blue, black or green color. The pink ones may be too girly.Smiley

Sweet4ever, in my world, you can't mess anything up by buying my goodies!   Grin

Americandemockracy, I love your new banner. It looks so professional!  I really like your craftster "handle" too -- reminds me of a good friend that on here that goes by Patriautism.  Wink

I haven't sold any more tiny wallets yet, but one that I listed around 3.30 am has almost 100 views already!  Dang! 

I also got a convo asking if I offer them wholesale.  I find this flattering, but I'm debating even following up on the request; I've gotten two requests for wholesale before, that completely backed out (as in, I never heard from them again) after determining price & quantity and stringing me along for quite a bit. One of those "flakers" even represented a brick-and-mortar store in Denver!  Anyways, the person who asked me about wholesale via Etsy convo just registered last night (4/22) and has no information in their profile whatsoever.  Should I follow up on it? Or do you think I'll just get screwed again?

Thanks for the compliment! I don't know about the wholesale offer- I think I'd be a little weirded out.  But that's just me.

Come check us out for period goodness!

Craftster is back!!!  Was anyone else having troube accessing the forums?  There was a while where Etsy was having issues and I couldn't list any items, and Craftster was down, and I was just about to go bonkers.   Wink  But both are fixed now!  Hurrah!

I don't know about the wholesale offer- I think I'd be a little weirded out.  But that's just me.

Yeah, I haven't responded, and I don't think I'm going to.  The convo itself is super brief, and to me the whole thing seems sketchy.

On the other hand, I've got a few new items listed now, including a new set of flower hairpins!  Whee for new stock!

Misslilamae, I had a wholesale offer a while back that went very well.  It was small, but I could tell immediately that it was legit.  If you have a weird feeling about it, then it probably is weird, although the wallets are something that'd sell well.   I, too had one person who emailed me about a wholesale offer and then when I told her pricing, never said yes or no.  Very unprofessional.

Today, April 23rd is William Shakespeare's Birthday and Deathday.
Due to this strange timing coincidence...

all timepiece jewelry in my shop is 15% off for today only.
ADDITIONALLY...the current sale I am holding of two free cards with any jewelry purchase still applies...

So pick a piece of jewelry featuring a repurposed watch and you'll get 15% off AND 2 free cards...
don't waste time...
as Shakespeare wrote in Richard II:

"I wasted time, and now doth time waste me;
For now hath time made me his numbering clock:
My thoughts are minutes; and with sighs they jar
Their watches on unto mine eyes, the outward watch,
Whereto my finger, like a dial's point,
Is pointing still, in cleansing them from tears.
Now sir, the sound that tells what hour it is
Are clamorous groans, which strike upon my heart,
Which is the bell: so sighs and tears and groans
Show minutes, times, and hours"


Celebrate the bard!

Ack! This thread is moving too fast for me too.
nitesprite, I got your chocolate spoons! they look delish and thank you for the extra spoons!
sockdiva, I would totally offer a free pattern with the yarn for a skinny scarf--maybe something with easy openwork (drop=stitch?) because angora gets so warm? (on a side note, you raise and spin your own angora?)
holly, the new girls are adorable. They'd make a lovely line of cards too I think.

Thinking about Sock's question on buying handspun, hand dyed yarn.  I'm always curious about where the fiber came from, if home grown - how is it processed.  Maybe lots more info than really works in the item description.

With my needle felt items, especially the hats, often wonder if most people even really know what to expect - many have a concept of say a knit hat, but lots of people have never seen in person or touched a needle felt hat.  I started a blog to tell about hats and share information.  That way people who are curious can find out more.

Does anyone else do this?  A good idea?  Would any of you be interested in exploring the idea of blogging to inform consumers and support your store with information about your special products?  If there are I'll start a new topic so we don't further log-jam  this one.

Do you guys purchase your shipping boxes in bulk?  Where do you purchases your packing supplies from?

I realize there are shipping calculators on USPS, etc., but they go by size, weight & destination, don't they?  So, how do you calculate the shipping costs before hand, unless you have everything already boxed up?  Do you just estimate?

I am horrendously organized since I started working from home a month ago, so before I can open a shop, I need to know all of this stuff & have it precisely laid out or I will go cross-eyed Wink  Sorry for so many questions.

I searched "shipping" and "boxes" on this and the mother board, but couldn't find any good, juicy threads regarding shipping/packing.  But, if you know of some threads & would rather direct me there, that would be great Smiley  If not, any help you could give would be most appreciated.

*hugs to my Etsy gurus*

Do more of what makes you happy.
