Price change notice:
The time has come the Walrus said…Wait, start over! One of my customers pointed out to me that my prices had not increased in a long time. No, she was not complaining, but she did suggest I should revisit and research, because prices elsewhere have not remained constant.
I did and … she is right. It has been over 12 years since I made any changes. In the last 2 or 3, stuffing alone increased in price more than once. Annual maintenance on my sewing machine jumped as well, plus the items required to print photos on fabric. With the increases in minimum wage, it is understandable prices go up. Meanwhile, my “wages” go down!
Right about now, someone is thinking “What about shipping?” Yes, shipping certainly has gone up, but rather than doing set amounts, I figure each and every order on its own merits. In other words, you only pay what YOUR order requires. I will round to the closest 50 cents or dollar. If there is a huge difference between Priority and Parcel Post, you get to choose which one. There will be no changes in how that is figured. As far as I can tell, any of the automatic preset deals would overcharge you and I’m not going to do that.
After some contemplation,
here is what I’ve decided. AS OF
