A little information you might want to read.
I am wholesale to the public simply to give stitchers a great deal and save you money. Plain and simple. I turn down requests from shops to carry my floss because it will raise the price for you. I discourage designers from using my floss in their designs because I will not put it in shops. I know you all appreciate the great price of my floss. I went into this business to prove that you can be generous with people and it simply isn't about making money. It's about sharing....and helping people on a tight budget who would like to stitch more. And having fun with lots of give-aways all year long. And if you have been a follower of mine you know how much I give back.
All of my repeat customers always buy direct from me. After their first Ebay sale I ask for direct sales. Ebay fees are high. And we have to pay 10% of the postage. But now they have dropped our discounts as top rated sellers. They used to entice you to be a top rated seller and then you received 20% off the fees you paid to list and sell items. Well they have dropped that to 10% and that is just not acceptable to me. Their fees are steadily going up and discounts going down for sellers. So.......
The prices in my ebay store will go up 10% very soon. I ask my regular customers to browse the ebay store but purchase directly from me if you want the sale price.
I hope you understand my position. I can sell wholesale to the public but I can't take a loss. I'm generous....not dumb! LOL
Thank you for listening. I know quite a few people who are leaving Ebay because they have had enough. I will work with them a little longer and then maybe do a separate web site. All I need to do is find enough hours in the day to get all of this done. I have more important things to do....like dye floss! LOL
