Okay. I am VERY happy at the response to my blog sale! I'm pretty sure I will be adding more things later. Yay! Now that I've said that, I got a very disappointing email today.
Zoya contacted me and told me that I would no longer be receiving PR or samples because a "twitter fan" informed them that I was selling their samples for profit. I wasn't upset with Zoya at all, and I totally understand where they are coming from... However, the "fan" that made the assumption that everything I'm selling was sent to me for free is preposterous! I belong to MANY swap groups, and I do tons of in country swaps, how is it not possible that those were sent to me? Or that I bought extras?
I do (as you've seen) have samples on my sale. I am not selling any of them at a price that I will be making money on them. In fact, I think I have *most* of my items at a lower price than I could actually get for them! I am "selling" those to help cover shipping costs. If any of you have shipped anything before, you know that it costs more than what I am charging for shipping. So really, I'm only making a minimal amount on anything I have listed.
I am very disappointed in what happened today. There seems to be SO much drama surrounding Zoya. They are an amazing company, and no matter what the outcome of this situation would be, I would support them fully. Luckily, we were able to talk and get things figured out.
Summary? If you have a problem, or you feel somebody isn't doing something right, be an adult and ask THEM about it. It will solve a lot of problems before they are even created!
NOW, I just wanted to let you know that some of my international friends have talked to me... and I've decided to sell internationally! Same drill for all of you, just quite a bit more shipping :( If you are interested in any, shoot me an email listed on the sale page and we'll get you set up!
To everyone else, thank you SO much again. I love all you guys! Thanks for reading :)
