And the winner is....

Hollyzhobby is the giveaway winner!!! Yay! I will post another giveaway in a day or two so check back. In the meantime, what do you all think about shipping? I think it's a racket. I tried the usps flat rate envelope a few times and it looked like someone's dog ate half of it. Since I've opened my etsy shop, I have always charged for flat rate shipping. After the holidays I debated on changing it, but for the sake of continuity and a major incentive for purchasing more yummy soaps, I kept it the same. Anything over 3.95 I pick up the tab. Today I'm on the etsy forums and asked for a critique and the only thing the critiquer could find wrong was my shipping policy. I mean, it could be a bummer for some who might only want a lip balm, but ever the clearance rack hound, the more lip balms you buy, the better the deal. And how about the giftsets? Reasonable, right? It's funny that I put myself out there (definitely my decision) to be critiqued and now I'm questioning everything. In the last few hours, I've changed lip balms, solid perfumes and earrings shipping. Check it out and get back with me. I'd like to know what other consumers think. Oh, and BONUS, I have a 10% off sale going on in my shop until 3/1.


  1. Thank you so much, I am so excited to try out your lovely soaps.

  2. Looks like you're off to a great start. Keep up the good work.

  3. Honestly, shipping is SO tough. And soooooo expensive. I didn't see anything wrong with the flat rate myself and I am totally lusting over your soap. So don't sweat too much because I think your scent combos will make you a superstar no matter what you charge for shipping
