Holiday Ordering and Shipping Times at Risky Beads

Risky Beads has gotten very busy in the last month, and I'm getting a ton of emails/convos asking for information.  This blog post is at attempt to consolidate those answers in one place and make it easier for me to concentrate on completing orders. :)

Here are the FAQs:

When will my order ship?
As of December 8, 2010, hand stamped metal pieces are shipping out in about 7 business days from date of order (and payment.)  I ship domestic orders first class mail straight out of PayPal.  Orders are trackable that way.  You'll receive an email from PayPal when your order ships.

Can I upgrade to USPS Priority Shipping?
Yes, but you need to tell me before you order.  Upgrading to priority doesn't get your order out of my shop any faster; it just moves it faster once it's out.

How long does the mail take?
Typically, First Class mail takes 2-5 days; Priority takes 2-3.  These times are stretched during the holidays due to an increase in volume.  Please consult the postal service if you have other questions.  I apologize, but I can't predict these things.

When is your international order deadline?
It was December 3rd; it's now passed.  Any international orders that come in will be done as soon as I can get to them.

What should I do if I have a question about my order?
Please message me from the 'contact' link on your order page.  That way I know who you are and what order you're referring to.  I have over 100 orders right now, so that's the best way to get to me.

Are you Wonder Woman?
God, I wish.  Oh Santa... about that invisible plane...

I'll add to this post if I think of any others!

Ho, ho, ho--

Busy, Busy, Busy at Risky Beads

Hi, folks! Sorry for the lack of posts.  I've been super busy with my Etsy shop since about the 5th of November, and other things have fallen by the wayside.  So, just a few updates before it's back to the bench block!

My deadline for international (all non-U.S.) orders is Dec 3rd.  I need to have time to make your order and then have enough time for it to travel through the mail to your chimney!

Bracelets are now 35% off!  Everything left is a one-of-a-kind design!  Beaded jewelry ships out within 24 hours because there's no hammering involved!

That's all for now!
