I dislike needing to do this, but I need to.
This is clearly posted on the top left section of the Blog Reader Specials page:
How it works: Each item available for immediate sale is identified by a BRS-Number above the picture, as well as in the picture itself. Select the item(s) you want, then send me an email, with your Item Number selection(s), along with your location so I can calculate shipping to your destination. I honor requests in the order in which requests are made, based on the time stamp on your email. I will create and send you a PayPal invoice for payment, and when payment is made your package gets shipped.
And then at the bottom of that same left-hand column I have this:
Unless arrangements have been previously made*, please pay the invoice when it appears. As of 11 September 2012, any invoice for BRS yarns that are not paid within 3 days, the invoice will be cancelled, and the item(s) will be made available for others. Why? Because these are immediately available and ready to go. Setting these aside without payment or prior arrangement means someone else can’t get them AND my other bills can’t get paid.
* with regular previous customers, I do try to accommodate when I can.
As it happened just recently, due to unexpected bills, I wasn’t able to hold a yarn for a regular customer who asked, but normally I can do that for regular and repeat customers. It made me sad I couldn’t do it this time, but this was the first time in many months I wasn’t able to. Normally, for repeat customers I’m happy to hold a yarn for a few days. I’ll go ahead and mark it as sold, and send the invoice with the agreement to pay on whatever date they specify.
What I cannot do is hold one-of-a-kind, ready to ship items just waiting for someone to pay for it if they haven’t asked first or someone I’ve not sold to previously. And even though I sent an email on the 3d day, I didn’t get a response. So I cancelled the invoice and this skein is once again available:
along with far too many others that haven’t been sold. This is not a good thing. So from now till the end of this Friday, the End-of-Month Clearance is on at the Blog Reader Specials page: Claim TWO or more yarns and get 15% off the total order of BRS yarns. (and just between you and me … if you ask me sweetly, I’ll even give you 15% off on two or more yarns from the custom-dyes side if you order before Friday evening.)
I’m never sure how the buttons down below work, but feel free to share this to Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest or whatever other place you like to brag on your Knitivity yarns. 🙂
