Hello Everyone! I would like to start this off by saying "Thank You Dearly" to all of my past and present eBay friends. I have been on eBay for over 10 years now and It's time to move on. With all of the changes eBay has been making over the last couple of years things just aren't the same. The fees keep going up for sellers, but more and more of our rights taken away. I believe they are trying to become more like Amazon or a retail site than what this site started out to be and was intended for. They are slowly but surely trying to get rid of the little guys/gals. And I truly believe as well the handcrafted artists like myself.
Please be aware, I am not going anywhere. My business, next to my family, is my life. I absolutely LOVE doing what I do. Being creative and spreading Joy to others is my life. I will still be here in my studio creating one of a kind items or in my office creating Lovely graphics and webdesign. I will still wholly support all of the past, present and future auction templates, websites, storefronts, etc,. You will be able to reach me still through eBay messages or my email addy and I will still give the same Best Customer Service I have in over 10 years of business.
I will still be leaving a few items listed and add in a few new ones now and then, but will be removing my eBay store. I have found a new venue, besides my website, that is more handcrafted friendly, easier to work with and a better more positive atmosphere for both sellers and buyers alike. If you know what site I'm talking about, you can look me up, TheShabbyBoutique.
Please know that I have had a great run on eBay and will truly miss those of you who don't follow me. Every person I have ever sold to truly holds a special place in my heart. I have met so many truly Wonderful people on this journey, but it's just time to move on and take another path. I do hope to see you on it.
Once again, I'm not closing, I'm not going anywhere, just choosing a different path as I know so many of my other handcrafted peers are doing. This journey has been Beautiful! Thank You all again!
I am having a huge Moving On Sale March 31st through April 3rd. I will have many of my Home Decor wares 20% off and all Auction Templates 50% off. Please check it out!
Once again Thank You All from the bottom of my heart!
Hugs and Blessings to All!
Shabby Boutique is dedicated to bringing you quality items with a smile. My handcrafted pieces are created with the family in mind. They are created to last, even with children. I have 3 rough and tumble boys ranging in ages from 4 to 14, so I know what it is like to have wash everything and make sure it's sturdy and well made. All of my handsewn items come to you top stitched, lots of detail, raw edges serged, fully lined with cotton muslin, filled with only the finest down alternative & French Lavender on the market, every stitch in it's proper place and Lovingly hand stitched details. They also come with custom hang tags and woven tags for gift giving quality as well. You don't stay in this business for over 8 years, as I have, unless you give Great customer service with Quality items.
The retail items that I sell are only Quality items that I have used myself and Love. I am very picky and detail oriented, I must say, so I definitely look for quality, sturdyness and detail. I want things to be Beautiful, but last through the test of time, and boys. LOL So even there you are getting Quality at Affordable prices.
My Graphic Design work is the same. I take a lot of time to create each image and make sure everything is just right. I use Vintage and Antique postcards and other ephemera that I have collected over the years including China. But as much as I love doing the Romantic & Feminine Design; I have been an artist and crafter for as far back as I can remember, so over the years my tastes have changed and I have tried many styles, so I can even do the sleek and contemporary and everything in between. And I don't just do Auction Templates & Banners. I can make anything from Business Card layouts to Shipping Label & Invoice Backgrounds. From Letter Head to Promotional Postcard layouts. From Website Templates to Notecards, etc,. etc,. etc,.. I think you get the hint. LOL :) So, if you have a Vision, let me bring it to Life for you!
Templates are always Buy 3, Get 1 Free! But Please do not purchase the Free one, just let me know at checkout which one you would like. Also, in order to get the Free one, all templates must be paid for in one invoice. And the price of the Free one will be equal to or lesser than the lowest priced template purchased.
So once again I will say "Welcome to Shabby Boutique". I hope you Enjoy your stay and I truly Thank You from the bottom of my Heart for Stopping by!
