This week I decided to try just relisting what had not sold before, after lowering some of the prices. Some of my items got watchers, but no bids. I also noticed that several patterns didn't have a single view- and THIS is obviously not good for sales. These patterns will probably go into a box to sell as an entire "lot". It's an easy way to get rid of a lot of patterns (including the ones you don't really like) at one time.
Another Shipping Hiccup
My WORST fail this week was a shipping mistake that I made. And it wasn't a small one, either. On Monday morning last week I went to ship a coat pattern. I picked out what I thought was the right pattern, but it wasn't. Just as I got up to look for the right pattern, I saw that the one I held in my hand had already been marked "shipped". Horror of horrors! I had mixed up the two coat patterns and sent one to the wrong person!!! I messaged both buyers and told them about the mix-up. The new buyer said "That's okay, I'm in no hurry to get the pattern." The second buyer took several days to reply, but finally told me she would be shipping the first pattern back in a day or two. Whew! Due to this mistake, I'll have to knock a few dollars for postage off of my profits the next time something sells. It was my fault though, and it's important to me that I make things right with my buyers.
This week may be a hit-or-miss with sales. I will try to list a few new items, but with Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, my little assortment of patterns may be overlooked.
Til next time,
