Star Seller Badge

I’ve got it! A Star Seller badge for September now is in my two shops. I am happy because achieving this badge took a lot of time. You need to answer all customers messages on time, control the tracking to different countries, crochet items that make customers happy and motivate them to write five-star reviews. In short, without you, my dear customers, I wouldn’t have these badges. Thank you for supporting my small business once again!

Review

That was an interesting story with this order. Violet bought a garland from me on August 16 and asked if the bunting would arrive by September 1. I immediately looked up the address and saw that it was New York. For this, I wrote back that it is difficult for me to guarantee something because shipments from Poland take to the U.S. once six days, the other time fourteen days. But taking into consideration that all of them go to New York for customs control, it is possible to assume that she will get the garland by September 1. And I’m still calmly checking the tracking: posted on August 16, sent from Poland on August 18, accepted in the destination country on August 21, released from customs on August 22 (ISC NEW YORK NY (USPS) – I’m already happy, but still silence, total silence and my package does not move. I am anxiously checking the tracking several times a day. Finally, “the item arrived (International Postal System)” on August 30, and therefore “the item was delivered” on August 30. Violet also wrote to me that she already received this garland. I must admit that it cost me some nerves, but fortunately, everything ended well. Thank you, Violet, for your patient and this lovely review!

Geography

Summer is coming to an end, and it’s time to check the outcome of my efforts. That is what my sales chart looks like in one of my stores. Thank you so much, my dear customers, from across the ocean and sea. I rarely sell to Europe, except the UK, but I’m so pleased when someone from The Netherland and France is happy with my garlands and left me a lovely review. Thank you all for supporting my little business!

Daffodils Garland in Progress

All of my daffodil garlands, yellow and white, sold out. Even though it’s out of season for these flowers, I still prefer to make them and have them in stock – then I can send them to a customer as soon as possible. I crochet a trumpet-shaped corona with dark yellow thread first, and then the petals with yellow or white. I plan to make two garlands of each flower – the longer of 9 flowers and the shorter of 7.

Shipping

Lace collars I pack in ecological boxes and decorate them differently. The collar is attached to the white cardboard with a thread. Then, I put the collar in a box lined with paper, which I only use for collars – it has beautiful peony flowers on it, and then the box itself is decorated, always with lace elements. That’s all. This High Neck Collar was sent today to Neu-Isenburg in Germany. Thank you, Sarah, for your order!

New Collar

New Vintage style collar at LaceCrochetFinds this weekend. I did it! The hardest part was ironing the collar after the wash and getting all the creases into place. I even lightly starched it to keep it in shape. Once again, I am convinced that knitting a piece is the easiest thing.
