The Perils of Selling Online

Good day. Hope you are all well. I'd like to talk about something that happened recently.

I got a message through one of my online shops, supposedly from a wedding company, about a potential custom order. It sounded good as it would have given me a month's worth of work! I replied with my prices etc and then bought the colour I needed. I knew I had to start soon otherwise I would never have finished it all in time. I had it all planned out; I knew how many I had to do per day etc and as soon as the ball came, I started on the project.

I don't normally do this. For a project this size I usually like some of the payment up front before I start, but I only had a few weeks to complete the order. I had hoped that I'd create a few pieces and then they'd get back to me with a definite yes or no within a few days. A week later, still no response. I decided to contact them through their own website, still nothing.

I now think that it was a scam! :( I can usually spot scams but this looked legit.

I don't normally do posts like this, but this was a very frustrating experience for me.

On the plus side I now have lots of pieces to list on Etsy. Just need to sew in the ends and photograph them, so you'll probably see them this week.
