(Sorry, you have to read through to the end to find out about the deal.)
Unlike most people, I was at work on Thanksgiving.
I know, I know ... sad. But hey, the news never sleeps, and neither do I! I guess I'm kind of used to it because I've done it for the last three Thanksgivings. The plus side is that I have always had Christmas day off. I don't think I could handle that.
And besides, the peeps at work put together a pretty decent turkey dinner! (I made an apple pie.) I still miss my mom's sweet potato casserole though....mmmm.....
So, today is BLACK FRIDAY. And everyone on Etsy (and the world) is talking about SPENDING!!! DEALS!!! DISCOUNTS!!! HURRY!!!!
It makes me a bit stressed out.
I like to think of Etsy as an oasis where people can pay a fair price for a HANDMADE product that someone put a lot of time and effort into (i.e. not "made in china!")
Sorry. That was my rant for now.
Anyway, I feel like the holidays are a time of love and giving ... so I want to give my customers some sort of deal --- but I want to call it a "customer appreciation sale."
SO---- the deal.
I will offer free shipping to the U.S. midnight EST Monday (the 30th)
I will offer $5 shipping to anywhere else in the world (flat rate) until midnight EST Monday (the 30th)
