There are few sales in the LaceCrochetFinds shop, mainly they were chokers to the USA, Colorado and New York. Apart from that, a few sales have been to Europe, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the Netherlands.
All about sales
At the beginning of the year, there were a lot of orders in my shops. Sometimes I had 10 -12 opened orders at the same time. I worked hard and was even able to defend Star seller status. Then, the number of orders started to decrease. Customers bought 1 – 2 things a week from me. That was ok. Unfortunately, now I have no purchases at all. I understand that buyers are waiting for a Black Friday sale. Sure, I settled it on November 18. The problem is that I send orders from Europe and can’t guarantee that the USA will get their orders before Christmas. Besides, my Earlyholiday sale is 20%, and the Black Friday sale will be 10%. So visit my shops now, order something you want, and I’ll send it to you in some days.
I wish I had never written this post. Unfortunately, I have to. This week I received another shipment of threads, which I usually order on Allegro or from private companies. I was shocked to find that the yarn I use for crocheting has gone up by 40% compared to January this year. Sadly, I have no option left, only to increase the price of my finished products least by 20%. The discount for regular customers remains the same as before – 10%. I will raise the prices gradually so that the Etsy platform does not suspend my shops, and you have the chance to buy some of my products at the old price for a while. I apologise for such a weekend message, but I have no control over the thread I use for crocheting prices.
A new white choker is available in LaceCrochetFinds. Made from 100% high-quality mercerized cotton and tied with a white satin ribbon. Choker length 32 cm / 12,6 inches, width – almost 4 cm / 1,5 inches. This simple yet elegant accessory works well with many looks. https://www.etsy.com/listing/1280615544/white-crochet-lace-choker-collar-with
Monday is a shipping time. Yesterday I completed two orders – flowers bookmarks set and a black lace choker necklace with satin ribbon. Unfortunately, only the choker left home to New York City. Today I packed both orders carefully and noticed that the customer chose the yellow colour for the bookmarks. Thank God I noticed that at all! I asked the customer what shade of yellow she would prefer, and now I have finished and even packed two bookmarks – lilac and dusty pink. If you like them, you are welcome, and I’ll send them to you tomorrow. As you can see in the photos, the packaging is always different for different products – with flowers for bookmarks and with lace for the choker.
Thank you, Morgan, for this lovely review. We appreciate it very much.
Three shops on Etsy take all my free time. They need a lot of work on SEO, answering your messages, advertising on social media etc. But the result translates into sales. Being a Star seller has its sense because this status helps increase sales. My two shops have Star sellers badges. Unfortunately, the third one – LaceCrochetFinds – isn’t worth it just because of low sales. Do you think it is fair?
Can I say that I am proud of myself? There is the first review on the first crochet collar purchased in LaceCrochetFinds 🙂 This feeling that you made someone happy is priceless! Thank you, Lia, for the lovely review! We appreciate it very much.
A new collar is ready, but I do not list it in the shop yet because I can’t take photos with the proper colour. Ys, it is the same problematic burgundy colour, which caused three stars review in the shop. It seems that it takes me a lot of time to find the proper place and light to take the right photos.
The first time the collar was bought (the second one). Today hit flew to Coral Springs, FL, USA. I hope the others will also find their owners.
