Over the hiatus, I temporarily shut down my etsy shop. I decided that if I was taking a creative break, that would include answering emails and packaging products. Ok, ok. Really I just wanted to be lazy for a bit.
Such a bitch move, I know. But I don’t understand those customs forms! If you say it’s a gift, it costs a normal amount to ship. But if you said it’s merchandise it’s, like, an extra $40! I don’t want to lie, but I also don’t want to ask someone to send me their first born in exchange for a $10 change purse. So, at least for now, I’m just going to be a jerk and not ship out of the country.
Also, you can’t add package tracking outside of the country! I understand it, but I hate it. How will I know if my product made it to its destination?! Oh, US Postal Service. I love you, but sometimes you make it hard.
