Busy day today. I did the usual exciting things that us ladies get to do on a weekend, laundry, housework and a bit of gardening thrown in for good measure. My other half cut the grass out front whilst I weeded the flower bed. All exciting stuff ! As I'm rubbish at weed identification, unless it's a dandelion, I had to keep interrupting the mowing to ask himself if I was about to dig a plant up, lol. If there were prizes for growing dandelions, we would be gold medal winners. At one point I was tempted just to keep the dandelions and throw the ret of the greenery out, lol.
I managed to finally open an Etsy shop as am beginning to get disillusioned with Ebay. I had some issues with a non-payer and because I refused to give her discount (duh) or accept instalments, she left some upsetting feedback for me. I contacted Ebay and they won't remove it because it's not in breach of any of their policies. Despite the transaction being cancelled, the (non) buyer can still leave feedback, how crazy is that? I do have the option of leaving feedback for her, but don't want to start a war as am sure there will be further problems. I appreciate that Ebay has to protect the buyer, but what about the sellers? Anyone else had similar problems?
Back to the shop ..... nothing in it yet as am photographing stuff and hope to list some dolls and the as yet, unnamed new bear. Any suggestions? I will pick a name from a hat if you'd like to send some suggestions in. I have one already from a good customer of mine so will add that one in first. I'll leave the naming open for a week and his new name will be written on the back of his tage for when he goes to his new home. I will send some vintage lace edgings and some home made tags to the winner. I know most of my followers live in the US but am happy to send prize there, it's only something small and won't weigh much :-)
His photo is below ...yes, I took it as you can see I have managed to incorporate my scruffy corner of the living room, lol. Please leave a comment and a name if you wish. Thank you x
