Shipping

Shipping day! White Daffodils garland flies to Pittsburgh, PA; Flowers Bunting to Reston, VA; and Navy Blue Choker to Key Biscayne, FL. This Daisy box was my favourite and last one. It’s time to hunt for more boxes!

Reviews

I often show you new reviews on my products here. These are usually 5-star reviews. But life isn’t always that great. Unfortunately, sometimes we sellers get this type of feedback as well. The client didn’t respond to my suggestion to find a way out of this situation, and I thought a single review of this type from a shop practically killed it. Naturally, I was reluctant, but I didn’t have time to think about it as the orders from another shop sprinkled in. And at some point, customers started buying from me at a shop with three stars. Finally, yesterday I got two new reviews on my chokers. You can’t imagine how much joy these reviews gave me. It means everything I do is not in vain and people like my work! Thank you, Katell, for such lovely and detailed reviews. They made my day!

Shipping

The first shipping 2022 year consisted of three packages: two orders were from the UK and the third one from the USA. The biggest one was from Scotland, Dunblane, a small town situated not far from Stirling. There were three pieces in this parcel – a Poppy, white Daffodil and Christmas Trees buntings. The next order, Flower garland, was from Congleton, a city in southeast Cheshire, located about halfway between Manchester and Stoke. And the last order flew to New York City, there were two chokers, dark red and navy blue were in it. Thank you, girls, so much for supporting my small business!

Shipping

I was finishing and packaging last weekend orders all day long. Tomorrow I’ll send three garlands – yellow daffodils, poppies, and flowers to Batavia, IL; pumpkins garland to Stockbridge, GA; and a tiny burgundy choker to Roswell, GA. All orders are from the USA. Thank you, my dear customers 🙂 You can easily see which box the garlands are in – the box tied with the threads buntings are crochet. That helps me not to get confused when packing the orders into envelopes.

Geography

One of the most popular items at my shop is dark red or burgundy colour choker. It was a custom order about the length and yesterday it was despatched to California, San Jose – the cultural, financial and political centre of Silicon Valley and the largest city in Northern California. All these facts are new to me. So I’d like to emphasize that my shops give me the best geography lessons.

(The real colour of the choker is in the second picture).

My New Toy

It’s certainly not a toy, it’s my long-awaited purchase – a mannequin. I choose it after a long time and the main criterion for choosing exactly it was the colour of the upholstery – natural linen of a possible light shade. This was the colour I was looking for because I guess it shows off white, cream, beige collars as well as burgundy, navy blue or black collars. I spent the whole day running around the flat with this mannequin, looking for the best light, which I failed to do because the day is overcast and it’s raining outside, but I took a couple of pictures anyway. Now I have a lot of work – to crochet almost all the collars, take photos of them on a mannequin and upload them to my shop. Wish me luck!
