Sorry for the lack of posts all week. I was swamped with work and was sort of burnt out from the previous week of mega blogging.
I’ve got some good news though! I found out that I can ship packages weighing less than 7 ounces via First Class USPS. Previously, I was shipping through the Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes (curse you non-stop commercials!) and that was at $5 to ship via the small box domestic US. Compare that to the $2 shipping cost of using First Class instead! True, you get free packaging if its shipped through the flat rate boxes, but $3 savings is pretty significant considering the economy. In addition, shipping the lower weight items internationally through First Class costs about $5! Using the flat rate small box costs about $13-15 depending on location. I wish I’ve known sooner… and many apologies to past buyers on the higher cost of shipping!
With that, I’ve updated all of the shipping info in my Etsy shop.
Speaking of Etsy, I have some new goodies in the shop:
The Cube Case is actually a part of a series of prototypes. I am trying to decide on the best version in terms of time it takes to make and the aesthetics. There is a second and third version, but I haven’t gotten the chance to download and edit the photos. Hopefully that will change soon.
And of course, I’m trying to unload the Coventry Cottage. I’m open for negotiations with it.
I also have a bunch of dollhouse accessories that I need to take pictures of, download, edit and post to Etsy as well. They are the decorative, wall art stuff. A sneak peak can be seen on the Cube Case picture 🙂
Now that the weekend is here, I’m hoping to catch up on some mini-work!
