Money money money

I'm sure you've heard the terrible news about the royal mail price increases. I've stocked up on stamps, but there's not much I can do about parcels. And a while back the Folksy listing fees and commission went up. And materials aren't getting any cheaper. So I'm here with some rather sad news...

As of the end of April my prices will be rising. I'm sorry I have to do this, but my aim will still be to bring you gorgeous handmade cards and gifts at affordable prices. They will just be a little more expensive, but hopefully still very affordable. People keep telling me that my prices are very reasonable for handmade, so I'm really hoping you'll still buy from me.

I will need to put my delivery prices up to reflect the higher postage costs. But I will also be spreading some of the price increase across some of the items in my shop as I don't want high delivery prices to put customers off, and it also helps bring in a few more pennies from offline buyers, hopefully keeping the total prices as low as possible.

So, if you have your eye on something in the say it shop, I recommend you buy it before 30 April. And it will be one less item for me to painstakingly go through and change the prices!

  1. I'm having to do the same as you. It's such a bummer and I'm worried it'll put people off as I've noticed people watching the pennies already...what are they going to do now with these postage increases?! Grumble grumble...... that's really sweet letting people know beforehand, I should post similar on my blog... x


Thanks for your comments, I always love reading them.
