etsy downtime is frustrating huh? i know they are working hard, but it’s really hard for an etsy addict like me! *)

A vintage medium-sized puffy heart gold-toned charm lies on the absolute most beautiful vintage chain of bright gold and aqua links, and vintage brass chain.

A short link of vintage plastic hoops lies off to one side. Puffy heart measures about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in height.

This is an adorable long necklace (measures about 27 inches or 68 cm around) that you’ll wear all spring and summer long!!

Email me at pequitobun@gmail.com to reserve.

etsy’s been down for the past 15 hours or so, and it occurred to me that i can’t sell anything if I can’t list it!! duh. lol. Then I realised that I have been blogging about almost every single new design in my shop here anyways.

epiphany! voila!

I decided to start something called “first dibs” on my blog, to encourage people to read it more, to overcome these periods of etsy withdrawal, and, importantly, to have more control over when i can list and sell, since I have other stuff to do too. From now on, I will commonly post one of a kind items here on my blog first, before listing them in my shop, in posts categorized under “first dibs“.

If you read my blog often or RSS-feed it, and see a one of a kind “first dibs” item you like, email me at pequitobun@gmail.com to reserve it. I will then send you an invoice for you to pay, and everything will proceed as normal after that.

The caveats of this of course are that:

1) Two people might email me about the same item. In this case, the first person to email me gets first dibs, and if payment or communication about payment is not made within 2 days, the next person to email me gets it, and so on. I am at my email 23 hours a day pretty much, so communication is always prompt.

When a first dibs has been reserved or sold, the title will be changed to “RESERVED” or “SOLD” accordingly. An item will be considered sold after payment has been made.

2) You can’t leave me feedback. However, my policies and quality guarantees remain unchanged. If you’ve worked with me before, you know my anal-ness and prefectionism exceed your wildest imaginations. =)

3) I can’t leave you feedback. For this reason, I reserve the right to refuse a sale to previous non-paying buyers or other displays of sketchiness.

4) Why should you trust me? lol. You can see my store feedback here. You will also have a Paypal record of the transaction, and I always ship domestically with Delivery Confirmation and tracking. Purchases above $100 also get free insurance.

Of course, if the item does not get sold, it’ll go into my etsy shop at some later point, so you can wait for that too.

I’ll list a first dibs item today. Look out for it!!

Also, since I post pictures of almost all my designs here, when etsy is down, you can hop on over here to shop too. I’ll do my best to make sure I take stuff off etsy the moment things sell here (although if etsy is down it’s not a problem until it comes back up)

Good riddance to website downtime!! =) hurrah!

it is absolutely gorgeous here in boston today. i was going to go into work, but i think i will work from home instead. it would be too depressing in my basement office!!

today i made more designs in my dewdrops series. the ones i had made before this were all kind of subtle and whimsical, so today i made a kitschy- funky pair (dance paris hearts japan), an elegant evening pair (midnight entrance) and a more elaborate pair in bolder pretty colours (issey). all are limited.
