Well, a new year has dawned again. We are now in 2018!
I thought this would be the perfect chance for me to share this poem with you. It's a short poem which I memorized when I was quite young. Even though it's short, there's a lot to think about and ponder in it.
Today I'm veering away from my regular blog topics onto something a little more to do with the business end of things. I try to keep things as real as possible and thought this might help some other small business owner(s).
I thought it was maybe time to do a little history on the making of my little hobby/business, Netties Expressions. Share some behind the scenes information with you and give you a little feel of what all goes into my handmade products.
I have some updates to share with you regarding my shipping options.
I have found a company who offers courier shipping through FedEx, UPS and DHL, Purolator and Loomis. I will be offering these shipping options now until the Canada Post mail strike or threat of a mail strike is over and mail is actually being moving again.
Okay, so this is a little introduction to Online Shopping. I know that there is nothing like actually being in the retail location...seeing the products in real...touching them...seeing the quality of the item and the sizing...but it has to work out for you to do retail shopping. You have to have the time or take the time...maybe you have a child or two or three with you and it's just overwhelming to think of dropping by...what if they break something or touch something...this is where Online Shopping comes in.
With the potential mail strike by Canada Post, I have made some changes to my shipping. Right now, I'm only doing local pick up in store. If you have a way of getting something to you (ex. someone coming through the area) or would be willing to pay more to have your item(s) shipped via courier, please let me know and I'll do some pricing for you.
I'm hoping that this won't last long. There is a possibility that the mail will still move a few days but it will be very slow moving.
