peachy press is open.
This little shop of mine has been an on-again-off-again sort of thing for the past few years. And right now it's on! Being unemployed in Oslo means I have time to devote to crafty and creative things. I was invited earlier in the semester to sell my handmade goods at an artisan market. That turned out to be a really great opportunity and it was encouraging to see that people are interested in what I make. So I've continued to invest my creative interests in peachy press. I hope you take a peek at some of the things I've made!
Some information about Peachy Press:
Being in Oslo also means that materials for my products and shipping cost more. For this reason, I have had to raise my prices a bit. This pains me, but I had to do it. But, I will be back in the States for Christmas (in Seattle and Greenville). If you are a friend or family member residing in one of these places and want to order something, I can deliver it to you during my Christmas break and will cut the shipping costs. That means you might have to wait a while to receive your product, but you can also save 3-8 bucks. If you are interested in this deal, you can do one of the following:
-Send me an email or note on etsy saying which product you would like and that you would like to receive it upon my return to the USA. I will then change the shipping cost and make it a reserved item for you. You can purchase the product and I will hand deliver it to you sometime between December 14- January 10.
-Buy the product as it is listed on etsy and include a note that says you would like to receive this product upon my return to the USA. I will hand deliver the product to you sometime between December 14- January 10 and will include your shipping reimbursement in cash along with your product.
-You can also do either of the following and request to have your item shipped through the mail to you from the U.S. I will give you a reduced shipping rate and mail it to you right when I get back to the USA (around December 14).
OR if you are in the USA but not someone I will see in person, you can do this:
-Enter a similar note saying you would like to receive your product upon my return to the USA. I will give you a discounted shipping rate, since shipping in the U.S. is much cheaper than in Norway and I will ship your purchase right when I get back to the USA (around December 14).
Also, FYI Shipping takes about one week from Oslo to the USA.
I know this is a bit complicated and I'm sorry, but I guess that is just what happens when you go overseas. Things get a little complicated. I hope you'll bear with me. I've really, really enjoyed making things and I hope the things I've made can benefit you as well.
Have a lovely day, friends!
