I had a childhood book called ‘Rabbit, Skunk and the Scary Rock’, and I remember one of the characters going ‘OW WOW OW’ and I feel like that with rising postal costs.

Look at this link:  http://www.violetwanda.com/images/shipping.jpg

Ack, that’s a picture of our shipping costs for 10 days in June– 118 packages shipped for almost 3k in shipping costs.  We work really hard to keep shipping costs down for our clients.  We use free or recycled packaging wherever we can.  (We always ship discreetly.) We insure half of the value of a package through the shipping, but we cover the other half ourselves for you.  Anything we can do to keep the US Postal Services costs down.

But we do have to insure fully for international shipments, and we have to put a signature required service on all wand kits, to ensure your package gets to you.  I just wish there were more we could do.

On our Violetwanda Presents line of products we have not raised prices in over 10 years.  I keep saying its going to happen, and it does have to happen, but I keep putting it off.  I want you to have access to quality.  I want you to have access to products that are 100% made in the USA.  I want you to have the toys that you want, and not just get something substandard because its all you can afford.

But a price increase is inevitable, especially if we want to expand customer services.   We will do what we can to keep it as low as possible.  I am hoping we will not have to increase prices on the Violetwanda Presents line at all, though we will definitely have to for Mjolnir.

How are you holding out on this heat wave?  The shop is concrete block, so it stays cool enough, even at midday.

 

Stay cool!  love to you all!
