A lot of changes are happening at Bellissima Couture! Please read this email carefully so that you will be prepared to purchase when I begin listing again in the next few days.
From this point forward, I am no longer selling on Etsy. I will be selling directly from this website instead. So instead of following a link to Etsy when you receive this email, email me directly instead. I do have to enforce a few rules, however. Expressing intent to buy is not enough to secure a fashion. One of the reasons I moved to Etsy in the first place was because of buyers who said they wanted to buy a fashion, but then would not pay for days or even weeks. Please do not say you will buy a fashion if you do not plan to pay immediately. Payment is accepted in the form of PayPal.
I also need to change my policy regarding commissions. As some of you may already know, I have been very ill over the past year and need to minimize stress as much as possible. This means cutting back considerably on accepting commissions. It also means that once a fashion is sold, please don’t ask me to make just one more. If a fashion is very popular, I will bring it back, or at least use the fabric again in a different style. And I will open my commission books from time to time. But I am only just now getting back on my feet again and I need to focus on that as much as I can. I appreciate your understanding.
I also appreciate your patience and understanding as I get this new system going. This is the way I used to sell my fashions, so I don’t really anticipate any problems, but as with any new system, there may be a few issues.
Thanks so much and love to all!
