Estoy Furiosa / I'm Furious

Este mensaje no es amigable así que si desean pueden obviarlo. Me quiero dirigir a las dos fabulosas personas que se han acercado a mi tienda con el fin de comprar las bolsitas de dulces para cumpleaños. Déjenme decirles, que en mi tienda se consiguen precios módicos de acuerdo a los tiempos que estamos viviendo y es un trabajo de calidad. Sí ustedes solo querían pasar el rato con alguien se equivocaron de persona. Me da mucha rabia encontrarme con personas que alegan querer comprar mis trabajos y luego que yo tengo todo listo para comenzar desapareceb como por arte de magia.

Anteriormente, les había dicho que estaba pensando cerrar mi tienda y de verdad ya me harte. Estoy cansada de que las personas piensen que mis trabajos son baratos simplemente por que están a precios módicos que cualquier persona puede pagar (aún aquellos con el presupuesto más ajustado) y se ajustan a los tiempos que estamos viviendo. He buscado alternativas y nada funciona y por el contrario solo llegan personas que desean incomodar. Tengo tanto coraje y no logro entender por que me hacen esto. Al parecer mi trabajo no es tomado en consideración y somos blanco de prejuicios, la razón no la sé, será por que mi idioma principal no es inglés o por que sencillamente no vivo en los Estados Unidos, de verdad que si estas son algunas de las razones por las cuáles se acercan a mí, escogieron a la persona equivocada por que no pienso ceder. Esta tienda es mía y al que no le guste lo que yo hago simplemente con no entrar es suficiente pero, tampoco les permitiré que jueguen conmigo nuevamente ya que cada artículo es adquirido con dinero y no pienso invertir para luego quedarme con todo por que simplemente se les ocurrió desaparecer del mapa.

This message is not friendly so if you desire avoid it. My message is for the two fabulous people that went to my store with the intention of placing an order to buy the birthday treat bags. I wish to inform you that my store have reasonable prices according to the times we are living and is a work of quality. If you want to waste someone's time you've got the wrong person. It gives me lot of rage to find people that say that they want to buy my works and as soon as I have it ready they dissapear as art of magic.

Previously, I had said that I was thinking of closing my store. I am tired that people think that my works are cheap simply because they have reasonable prices which any person can pay (still those with the most adjusted budget) and they are adjusted to the times that we are living. I have tried alternatives for this extra income that we need and nothing works and on the contrary people arrives with the desire to disturb us. I have so much anger and can not understand why they do this. Apparently my work is not taken in consideration or we are a target of prejudices, I do not know the reason, could it be because my main language is not English or because I simply do not live in the United States main land, if these are some of the reasons why they approach me, then they have choosen the wrong person because I won't give up. This store is mine and the ones that don't like it please simply do not enter, I will not permit them to play with me again since each article is acquired with money and I do not think to invest in any order for those that simply disappear of the map.

I know it takes a lot for you to be mad...so you must be really mad! I'm so sorry this happened. I don't get why anyone would do this either.

I said before that you should raise your prices, only because your work is NOT cheap! It is so obvious how much love you put into your store, and that alone is priceless. But your kindness and big heart show in your reasonable prices (hope that makes sense).

And I understand your thoughts about prejudice. When stuff like this happens to me, the thought does cross my mind. I hope that it's not the case here.

((HUGS))

Wow!! That is very upsetting...I'll never understand why some people do stuff like that.

Have you considered having them pay you upfront, maybe via Paypal? Or at least put some kind of deposit down in good faith?

It really sucks that people take advantage of such a kind person such as yourself.

Annie,
I am so sorry that this has happened to you. I stopped making bows & clothing due to "friends" placing orders and not paying when the product was made. It is sad that some people are so tacky.
Wishing you and your business the best! Your items are beautiful - it is their loss!

Not sure if my message went through - blogger and I are not friends today. So I will try it again...

I am so sorry this has happened to you. I had "friends" place an order with me and then when the product was ready - they did not pay. I have since stopped making bows and clothes for others. And it is a shame that some people are so tacky! Your items are beautiful so it is their loss. Wishing you and your business the best!

I am so sorry to read this post, Annie.
You have a right to be really mad and frustrated.
I agree with Missy, it's their loss. You run a top-quality business in all aspects.
Big hugs!!

So did they purchase the item, but not pay through paypal?
Your talking about your etsy store right?

Malena said...

So sorry about what happened to you. I read the other ladies comments and agree with all of them - and with your post. Unfortunately it seems that you will need to look out for yourself first, and require some kind of monetary commitment before you go ahead with the order. Take care!!!

I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience with your store. Some people in this world are so cruel and thoughtless. You of all people did not deserve to be treated so unkindly. Don't give up, your things are beautiful, I can attest to that first hand. I love the shirt you made :) Hang in there!

Christina said...

I agree with Steph, your stuff is not cheap and well priced!! I'm so sorry people are making you so mad...they aren't worth it, but boy do I understand. I hope you get things worked out!

That stinks, Annie! I'm so sorry you have to deal with people who don't respect good business practices. Hang in there! I know God will continue to make a way to provide for your family.

The Smiths said...

I'm sorry that people don't think enough to do this.

I was highly impressed with your products and prices...You are cheaper for bows including shipping, than if I bought some from the store up the road.

monica said...

Anne, I agree with the other comments. Your items are beautiful and wish your business the best of luck! I hope you can get your money back for the work you put into the order.

Mommy said...

Oh amiga que triste tu experiencia...lo siento muchisimo de verdad. Espero que no te desanimes y sigas con ti tienda. Buena suerte y te mando un abrazo! :)

Jamie said...

Annie...I am sorry does not seem good enough! I can only imagine your frustration and heart-ache. You have lovely things and reasonable prices; why people tend to be poo poo is beyond me. Please hold your head up, because God is with you and He will carry this burden. Much Love...

Jayme said...

I agree with Helene- have them pay or at least put down a non-refundable deposit before you begin custom work!

girlytwins said...

So sorry Annie. I hope you continue to keep your store open. Your stuff is beautiful.

Krystyn said...

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this Annie. How could people do this and be so mean?

I hope you don't let them win and you keep it up.

Is there any way for you to collect a deposit before starting to prevent this from happening again?

Unknown Mami said...

I'm sorry. That just stinks. You'd think people would have better things to do. No te desanimes.

Christa said...

I'm so sorry this happened to you! I know firsthand that your products are great! I love my burp cloths that you customized for Mason!

My only suggestion would be to make them pay first, I know others have said this previously but I think it works best!
