Sorry.. rant mode time......
(some of you may find this pointless, but, if you are a creator of something and sells it..you'll understand)
If you don't make something & sell it.. I honestly suggest you might not want to read this.
Okay, so, I used to sell a lot, and still kind of do, but not as much cuz I've kind have been neglecting it, sell jewelry on this certain forum.
Occasionally, there will be people asking for discounts on jewelry...I'm just sick of it now...
A. I already priced jewelry & shipping cheaper there by $1 or more, because I know there are a lot of teenagers on that forum. Even shipping is $2....
B. EVERYTHING becomes a factor when buying handmade jewelry. From gas to drive to the post office, down to the last sterling silver pin. The costs of every jewelry piece is based on the materials used & the time to make it, along with a few extra dollars (at least ONE extra $1 on this forum....) thrown in to at least make some profit off of the piece that the maker enjoyed creating. The point of selling the jewelry is to share it with the world and at least make a little money off of it... not lose money, might as well just give it away!
C. Most of the time, there is NO PROFIT made off of shipping! Shipping is based off of packaging supplies and the actual cost to ship what you ordered.
D. The additional freebies are indeed, free to the buyers, bought by the seller with their own money.
E. Do not ask for some discount on STERLING SILVER jewelry, $5 shipped for a custom Sterling Silver jewelry piece... there's almost no profit in that when you factor in the materials used, packaging, time... and so on. I mean... Compare my prices to other jewelry makers? REALLY? get real... my prices are already dirt cheap prices! Tell me, when have you EVER seen a sterling silver jewelry piece priced at $3 from an actual store you walk into? I sure as heck haven't.
F. When you're purchasing handmade jewelry, one would only hope, you're purchasing the piece not just because you like it, but also because maybe, you would like to support the jewelry maker that created the piece.
I've actually been thinking about closing that shop down.... Sorry, I just REALLY needed to get that off my chest... Feel free to be a hater against what I said :/ but it's what I believe, if you don't like it, too bad, please go somewhere else.
Please.. at least just keep this in mind when purchasing handmade jewelry from me, or even another jewelry seller. Thanks for reading...I at least feel a little better...You know... it's best not to keep things in >.<
