Some of you may have noticed that prices on our Etsy store have increased; this is because Etsy has increased the amounts that they charge us. In order to continue bringing our customers quality items we’ve had to raise prices. In addition to raising prices we’ve also had to limit certain product offerings through Etsy.
I did not want to do this & to be honest, I’m not happy about it. Some of you have been such loyal return customers for years now & you’ve come to depend on our consistent pricing so it was really hard to raise prices. We want to be able to offer you the best quality & variety of products at affordable prices.
So, what are you doing about it?
Well, we’ve looked into a few options and this is what I’ve come up with- we are going to offer 3 alternative ways to place your orders with us. By doing this we will be able to offer our regular prices, processing times, and free shipping services to our U.S. customers.
How can I place an order now?
Well, you can still place an order in our store on Etsy if you’d like. We still love using our Etsy storefront & are happy to be a part of the Etsy community so as of now we plan to never get rid of this option.
You can also follow us on Facebook, on Instagram, and on this website. We will post a larger variety of product offerings on these sites. Products offered will still continue to have our free shipping in the US guarantee & will be at our original price-points.
Additionally, these options allow us to broaden our custom orders & allow us to offer porch pickups when available.
How do I order through Facebook, Cherishedcottage.com, or Instagram?
On Facebook or Instagram you can either comment to let us know you’re interested in an item or you can message us about the item/to request a custom order. We’ll set it all up for you & send you an invoice to pay for your order.
On Cherishedcottage.com we are working on setting up a storefront. We will also be posting shoppable blog posts where you can checkout on our site directly.
I also want to add that if you follow us on Etsy & like an item there you can always email us to find out that non-Etsy pricing & receive an order invoice that way. Our email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What about Lazy Dog Vintage?
Nothing is changing with Lazy Dog Vintage; we still have our booth space & still absolutely love our Lazy Dog family! We will still be continuing to stock our booth and continue to offer the same pricing there. If you see something in our booth at Lazy Dog please know you can talk to Ashley or Justin about placing a custom order through them & all items in the store can be purchased directly in the store.
Will you still offer sales & honor coupon codes?
Yes! We will always honor our return customer coupon code & we will continue posting sales & offering coupon codes.
*Please note: these sales/codes are only valid when purchasing from us directly. If you’ve come to use from Lazy Dog they offer their own awesome sales throughout the year that we participate in & you’ll definitely want to check out.
We are still on Etsy & don’t plan on leaving Etsy.
We are now offering you the option to order from us directly through our blog, our Facebook page, and our Instagram page.
We are still going to do sales & coupon codes on our own sites.
We are still selling at Lazy Dog Vintage.
Overall nothing is going away, we’re just giving you more ways to order from us.
