wednesday tip: etsy shopping advice…

all of us smw girls love, love, LOVE etsy!! the shops gives people the opportunity to buy unique handmade products and they truly have some amazing finds. but because you are buying from an independent seller there are certain things to keep in mind before you purchase…

1. read the policies and the listings before you buy so you know exactly what you’re getting.

2. timing!!! this is probably the biggest issue. since these are handmade products many of the sellers don’t begin to make your item until after you purchased it. So if there’s a date you need it by, keep in mind the production and shipping time to ensure you get it in time. or contact the seller to see if you can get it faster.

3. etsy gives customers the opportunity to contact the sellers so if you have any questions, concerns, or want a custom listing, don’t hesitate to message the shop directly.

4. keep in mind that purchasing a stock item is different than buying a custom listing. for this you must contact the seller so that they can create a custom listing for you that will have the appropriate costs of your requested item.

5. review that feedback!! The last thing you want to do is purchase something from someone with bad reviews on their shop. Late shipments, quality of items, lack of communication…these are all red flags to watch out for. Last thing you want to deal with is a bad seller, especially if you are in a time crunch for the wedding.

etsy has some seriously great products to personalize any wedding. hope this helps and happy shopping!! if you have any suggestions for successful etsy buys please share, i’d love to hear!!!
