Hello ladies.

If You Are. Bright Colorful Tribal Gypsy Assemblage Bangle Stack.

Here's what's new in my shop:
No more reservations! Life is too short. Used to be, though, reservations were no problem. Then, people would buy stuff reserved for others. So I'd have to open my photo editing program and write 'reserved' in a way that was presentable so folks could still see the item and not just a generic 'reserved' image you see sometimes. Cuz I still wanna be able to see the item!

Then, I'd have reserved items sitting there for MONTHS... and people would be all 'Can you just unreserve this and re-reserve that? And remove the shipping fee and describe the origin and molecular composition of each element used in the making of this third listing before I decide whether to reserve it?"
So that's been fun.

Also, no more checks or money orders. While most people who have used checks and money orders have been fantastic customers, the trouble makers ruin it for the rest of us.

I'm still offering layaways with payment in installments but if I don't get one payment per week, I'll have to return the payments thus far minus my etsy and paypal fees.

Wow. I sound bitchy. Da pims, you know.

I'm even slightly upset at people buying up the bangles when all these legitimately nice items into which I've put, you know, thought are just sitting there... Damn you for giving me your money!

Oh Fanci, I hope your visit went well. I'm so glad you've returned, even though you've got a mean case of the bitchies. Well not really, sounds like some of your buyers were taking advantage of you... shame on them! I love how you tell it like it is!!

Your work is so amazing I just love ya. Your bangles are awesome, I'm going to give it a try, I got some Jax and ordered some Dorlan's.

Take care,
...Jackie xo

Sometimes you just have to lay down the law. Good for you! I'm sure it will only end up helping your business in the long run. And thanks so much for all the information about making the bangles. I'm going to make some when I get a free moment this holiday season.

I'm sorry some people are crappy and ruin it for everyone else. Boo on them!! But this post did make me laugh. I also have...to quote Jackie above... " a mean case of the bitchies" today, so I guess seeing your little vent session here somehow made me feel better. I laugh at your pain (only because I know you can handle it ) ;-) Hope tomorrow is a better day for you... or not because it makes for a fun post!

Over here, a woman with a case of 'bitching' is called: Zicke. Which is a young goat, btw. I have always said it is a woman's birthright to be 'zickig' (adjective form of Zicke,; to be like a young goat, meaning difficult...). And most definitely, this post deserves the title: Zicken Alarm!

I don't think anyone's going to hate you! In actual fact I think they will worship you more; you will become this fabulously luxurious item that you have to be quick to get. Ann Wood sells her stuff with no reserves (or layaways!) and everything on her website is constantly sold out.

'fuck it' is the new multitasking.

Bitchin' not bitcheee!! Just adds to the pleasure of your posting for me! Besides - if there's some clowns out there taking advantage, then you need to pull them back in line. Shame on them anyway.
Those bloody bangles are getting ever more gorgeous - silly moo, it's no wonder people just can't help themselves.
I've now got the impossible task of putting togther my homage to you on my blog - you get first spot! I think I'm starting to get the hang of it all slowly. Hope you get time to peep at it.
Glad to see you back - and hope you had a good trip.

I hear ya, sista. Don't let the crazies take advantage of your wonderful self. You are the boss of yourself and your shop, so you make the rules. Keep creating your wonderful wares and don't let the world get in you way.
