Errors. I make them. My mistakes make my heart clang, my face burn red and my knees go wobbly. Thus my state when I discovered that shipping a shade to Canada was going to leave me quite a bit out of pocket. In the early days I haphazardly guessed International Shipping Rates on Bouf thinking I would never be shipping abroad. Wrong. Shipping to Canada/USA, Rest of World and Australia/New Zealand is not cheap, especially when boxes have to be generous to allow all that protective packaging. Of course, I honoured the postage and Pink Lace Butterfly is currently making its long journey to Edmonton, Canada. With Bouf’s commission and my mistake I am effectively giving this shade away for free… Hey ho. Lesson learned. Onwards!
All I did was reply to a Tweet from Bouf (one of my stockists) who asked how everybody’s day was going. I said I needed ‘a bit of a push’ and I got one! Thank you, Bouf.
Just a small problem! Selling my lampshades in gorgeous shops, both online and bricks & mortar, means I keep peeking at stuff and buying it! Not the best way to become profitable. I could easily plump for this quirky milk jug at Bouf, or half the shop at Tenderfoot. Goodness knows what will happen when I start selling at From the Wilde and Brighton POD (happening soon).
