Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!
I am so genuinely flattered and encouraged by all of the sweet comments and support I've received since announcing the shop. Really, it's quite overwhelming for a person like me who has great difficulty with change and branching out and and taking chances and, if we are being 100% honest, confidence.
Things like estimating shipping costs are tripping me up. I have taken a loss a couple times there already; there has to be a better way to ship that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Shipping costs shouldn't be a deterrent, you know?? Any ideas there??
Also, packaging. I thought for sure there would be enough boxes and whatnot around here for shipping, but I was wrong. Does that mean purchasing real shipping supplies? Where do you etsy veterans get yours?
I'm also kind of obsessing and stressing about getting to the post office immediately. With the baby. In the bucket carrier. And the boxes. In the snow. And ice. And what have you. Not entirely sure I picked the best season month of my life to jump in, but what the hey.
New in the shop this week:
( Oops. The syrup dispenser is gone already. Wow, that was fast!)
But really, this little shop has been so much fun. And I'm thrilled to say that I've actually sold stuff. What a thrill!!! To Japan and the UK, even. I'm global, baby. hee.
Gosh this is fun.
The dorkiness is at an all-time high.
Just in case you were wondering.
Which, I'm sure you were not.
So, thank you. Thank you so much for just stopping by and making The Shop feel legit and all.
