NEW: Reserve Shlii Items in Your Cart!

I’ve loved having my online shop thru Shopify except for one MAJOR problem: When a customer adds an item to their cart, another customer can purchase that same item as long as they reach Checkout first! I’m not the only artist having trouble with this, either. I’ve been researching the Shopify help boards for months, and every time someone brought up the issue, Shopify staff just didn’t *get it* at all. They seem to not understand that some of us make products by hand and have extremely limited listings that sell out in minutes when we do shop releases.  I’ve...

Babygorgon Pre-Order

At the last minute before heading out to O'Connor Brewing's Stranger Things party, I opened up preorders for a new friend: Babygorgon! It's the much rounder, quite small, and very kawaii cousin of the Stranger Things monsters. Even with all of Babygorgon's positive qualities, I'd still keep a close eye on your cat if you adopt one ... Opening up preorders Saturday night was a moment I went completely off of my business plan and schedule. Originally, I was sewing them for FantaSci, a mini con happening this weekend. But I was so excited and happy with how Babygorgon turned out that...

Now Offering Sezzle!

Now Offering Sezzle!

I recently discovered a really cool app for my shop called "Sezzle." After thoroughly researching about it, I've now added it as a new checkout option on my shop! When you choose Sezzle at checkout, it splits your total purchase into four payments over a six week period. Only 25% of the total is taken upfront, and there is no interest or extra fees collected from you. You do have to create an account with them, but it's really easy and quick. I pay a Merchant Fee to use their service, but I think it's totally worth it! They also have a...
