So here I go......I always wonder if this will bite me on the butt......
Do you all know why I sell my floss for $2 for 20 yards? Or my new line with the price increase for $2.45 for 20 yards? Simply to save stitchers money. Money I could be putting in my pocket if I sold 5 yards for $2.75 like the other shops do. But I won't.
I started selling floss to offer a quality product at an affordable price. I get criticized from shop owners who have asked to carry my floss....if I will quit selling wholesale to the public. And right now my pricing is below wholesale.
Am I mad? Yes. A shop owner told me that I will never get anywhere selling direct to all of you and not sell in shops.
And that I will be known for cheap floss with my cheap prices.
WRONG. I offer a quality product and I am just not greedy. Plain and simple. Could I open a small factory and employ people to do a larger floss business? Yes. I have a retail building sitting empty after we decided to close a pet shop. Do I want a larger floss business? No.
I love the stitchers I have met all along this journey and I have made many new friends. All over the world. I love to share my designs, my floss, and most of all, my time with the friends I have made. I like to call it quality of life. I know they appreciate the great prices I give them and we always have fun with all of my give-aways.
So I want you to know I will continue to sell wholesale to all of you. Simply to save you money. To give you quality floss at an affordable price.
So now that my rant is over....I will get back to floss! New colors....coming soon....new gift boxes, new floss sets and new give-aways!
