I thought I’d write a little post this morning, giving y’all some important info in its own post so that it doesn’t get lost in an update post.
First of all, I wanted to talk about custom orders. I am temporarily suspending custom orders until after January 3. I am having minor surgery tomorrow (12/9) and won’t be able to dye for at least 2 weeks, so I’m choosing to take the rest of the year off from dyeing just to simplify things. I have removed the sweater quantity preorder listings from the shop, but am leaving the custom order form up and able to be filled out in case someone wants to have something dyed in January. Thanks for understanding about this!
I will have a shop update on 12/10 and 12/17, and then there will be no more shop updates through the end of the year since the next 2 Tuesdays after that are Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. The shop will remain open through that time, though.
According to the USPS website, here are the shipping cutoffs for 2013:
- December 20: last day to ship first class and get the package there by December 24
- December 21: last day to ship Priority and get the package there by December 24
- December 23: last day to ship Priority Express (formerly Express Mail) and get the package there by December 24
As you all know, I try to ship via regular first class mail as much as possible, but will ship via Priority if you guys request it. Please send me an email to the shop email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will figure up how much additional cost Priority or Priority Express would be for your order, and can bill you for that amount directly after you place your order.
End of Year SALE
This probably deserves its own blog post altogether, and I might end up writing one closer to time, but I wanted to let you know that my annual tradition of having a huge pre-end-of-year-inventory sale is definitely happening again this year. From 12:01am December 25- 11:59pm December 31, enter coupon code ENDOFYEAR2013 and you’ll save 20% off your entire order! This is the biggest discount I give all year. This discount is only good on purchases made during that time and cannot be used on custom orders. Keep me from having to do inventory: buy ALL THE THINGS!
Store Closure at the beginning of January
I will be closing the store at 11:59pm on December 31 and the store will not reopen until sometime on January 3. I use this time to do inventory and get my taxes in order. If you try to visit the shop during that time, you’ll get a message that says “Maintenance Mode” and it will not come down until the shop is back up and running. I just wanted you guys to be aware so that you wouldn’t think something was wrong when you saw that.
Well I guess that’s all I really have to say! Please be sure to stop back by and see the shop update previews for this week. They’ll go up either tomorrow morning or Tuesday morning (depends on how quickly I can get them done today), and the update will take place as usual at 4pmET on Tuesday. Y’all are the best!
