Creating, CRAZY Shipping & Giveaway for Followers! !

Busy Busy today. Stayed up way too late crafting. Trying to play catch up from all the madness last week. Listing some great new things in My Etsy Store today: Amy Butler journaling spots, calendars, and tags :) I am doing a shipping special right now too. $2 flat rate U.S./$3 flat rate internatioanl. My way of letting my customers buy more without paying crazy shipping. Shipping makes or breaks the deal for me most of the time. I will shop shop shop on Etsy, but when I go to checkout, if the shipping ends up being more than I think it should be *wink* I will remove those items from my cart. You and I both know that you can ship up to 70 lbs of stuff in a small flat rate box or envelope. So, when shipping is like $6.00 on 3 or 4 small things, UGH! So, so off I go to get the cupcake topper/Party Pick giveaway packages ready, plan the next big giveaway for people who have added me as a follower in the right sidebar! So, add me before the end of the month and YOU can be eligible. Just click Become a follower of This Blog! Happy crafting!!! (As for comments, any thoughts on crazy shipping????)

I thought when I shopped on ebay that sometimes shipping was rediculous and when I'd ask about it they would say Oh well, If you want it you pay it. So I wouldn't buy it. When I sold items I charged exactly what shipping cost me and I expected the same from everyone else. Some people would list items cheap but charge 3-4 times on shipping and in my opinion that is dishonest. Thank you for being HONEST, ms.cheryl

I agree...when shipping is too high I will often check myself OUT! I don't expect people to lose money on shipping...but I expect it to be a reasonable mark-up...not outrageous!
