Etsy Update

A while back, I was so stressed out around when I had all those orders from being featured on the Etsy Finds Blog that I raised the prices of my "Three Reasons" line of cards by a dollar to $7.

I immediately felt a lot better, not only because sales slowed down (which they might have done anyway) but because I finally felt that my time was worth something. It takes a bit of time to assemble each of these cards (I am really proud of how smoothly the wheels rotate in them -- the mechanics work really nicely).

In any case, despite the slightly higher price, I'm still selling cards every few days, which is a nice pace for me. I wouldn't mind a bit of Father's Day rush in a few weeks, but for now, the more relaxed pace is super comfortable.

One nice side-effect of the many sales I made around Mother's Day is that I'm still seeing feedback from people -- it's so much fun to read the comments that people write about you! 

I recently had a customer contact me because she never received the Tree-themed Three Reasons card I had sent to her. I remembered sending that one out, so I assumed that the card had gotten lost in the mail and immediately sent her another with my apologies. 

She was kind enough to give me this feedback: "First of all, this card is amazing and I know my mom will love it! Second and most important, Mollylee is extremely helpful and friendly! Gold stars all around!"

Wasn't that kind of her? Feedback like that can really make my day!

Sales are great but sometimes you just need a chance to breath. I totally agree with you on that.
