Over the past few months I have been having a much harder time finding the inexpensive fabrics at prices I prefer. I’m still not purchasing at full price but it is becoming harder to stick to sale items that are under $2 a metre! I’ve also been participating in many, many more shows and it looks like the more popular handmade gets the higher the booth prices cost! To help support my higher costs I’ve decided I need to raise my prices just slightly. As of August 1st many (not all) of my items will be increased by $1-4. My prices will still be affordable, this will just cover the additional increases for me. I will also be adjusting my shipping prices as well however many of those may be either lower or higher depending on the cost of the item. I want it to be more cost effective for you to receive a $3 item without paying five dollars for shipping!
Another cool thing I have been working on is different types of sales. I will randomly pick a day where I will post a “Flash Sale” that’s is exclusive to one item in limited quantities at an incredible price. You’ll get a great deal and it will be exciting to be one of the few to get your hands on my handmade goodies! The other sale I will be holding is a “Name your Price” event. I will selected two or three items, set a minimum price and you get to pick what you pay for it! (Shipping will still be extra) Not only will you get that item you’ve always waited for but it will be within your budget. This type of event will be given with a minimum weeks notice so you are prepared to “Name Your Price”!
Even though a price increase is a bummer, I hope you are excited for my new sales. As always you can contact me anytime if you have any questions or would like to place a custom order.
Have a wonderful day and happy creating!
