No matter what I've bought on etsy, there is always a personal touch added.
In the last couple of weeks, I've experienced the etsy personal touch phenomenom a few times and it always makes me smile.
Masako of SockSockWorld went out of her way to change the eyes on the arglye platypus I wanted to give to my two year old Grand Niece. She customized the eyes to make it safe for a two year old and and still shipped out to me very quickly. To top it off, she was concered with whether I would like it. Are you kidding? How could I not love this platypus (shown off here by sister Di)?
Last week, I treated myself to two things and was pleasantly surpised when they arrived.
First, I just loved these little hello note cards from KiwiTiniCreations.
A happy hello, right?
Well, when they arrived, shop owner Kathy had written a nice little thank you note and ..........................
.....included a couple of little gift tags as a bonus! Sweet.
Then, one of our prints was featured in a treasury alongside these totally mod earrings. They were screaming me (ok, a mix of me and Gram Gram, but I can totally rock them) so I nabbed them immediately from Revvie.
Revvie's shop owner Rebecca also wrote me a thank you note and included a bag of tea that I can't wait to try.
Honestly, where else do you shop and a thank you note from the shop owner? And receive something extra on top of it?
It's just one of the 'little things' that makes etsy special, and I love it. None of my purchases were 'huge' by any stretch of the imagination, but each shop owner made me feel like my purchase was special and that they appreciate my business.
That goes a long way in my book.
I know, I usually feature shops from the current shop link up on Monday following the party, but I just had to share how these shop owners brightened my day. Gotta Have It Shop and Blog Link Up picks tomorrow!
Happy Monday. Make it a great day.
