Upgrading myself to another new field which related to aroma.

Dear customers,

I would like to apologise for not uploading new products to my e-store recently. For the past months till end of August, I will be attending a course in Aromatherapy [ITEC – Diploma in Aromatherapy Level 3 (International), UK Accreditation].

Hopefully, this course will lead me to another new product-lines related to aromatherapy.

Go to my e-stores of http://lilyhandmade.dawanda.com or http://lilyhandmade.alittlemarket.com for new or existing products. Without your supports, I could not come to this far and inspire me for new designs or products.

Lovely regards from Singapore,

Lily

Memories of how I started my handmade business in 2003 when I have participated in 2003 with my younger sister. I was interviewed by a reporter from “The New Paper” together with the lady beside me whom also the winner of the contest.

However, I have stopped for a few years to go back to my full-time job due to the high rental in Singapore. In 2008, I have started my handmade business again on the website and still continuing till today.

If you have any questions regarding the contest, kindly refer to Tartine & Mascara for further assistance.

On the October, 01, 2014, there will be an increased of postage rates at all my e-stores. I would like to apologise in-advance to all the customers of mine for paying slightly higher postage fees than usual when you purchase after 30th September,2014.

Q: How much will I increase the postage rates at my e-stores?

A: That is depending of how much SingPost will increase the postage rates of my usual International Registered Articles. Hopefully, I will not increase much, as I have always said that I do not earned any things from the postage fees. I seek your kind understanding on this matter.

On 3 September, SingPost has released the news that they are going to increase the postage rates from 1 October,2014.

Kindly read the following which I have extracted from “AsiaOne”.

singposRaisePostageRates

Local rates will increase between four cents and 20 cents while international rates will move up between five cents and 25 cents depending on the weight.

SINGAPORE – With effect from 1 October 2014 , local postage rates for letters weighing 20g or less will be adjusted by 4 cents.

The last time postage rates were adjusted was 8 years ago in 2006.

Since then, costs have gone up nearly 50 per cent – labour costs have risen about 31 per cent, fuel about 32 per cent and inflation has gone up 26 per cent – yet SingPost has been investing in service to serve Singaporeans better.

SingPost will also revise its international postage rates to partially offset the increase in postage for outbound mail as a result of Singapore being re-classified twice by international body Universal Postal Union. These have resulted in SingPost being charged more by other countries for delivering the mail that Singapore customers send to recipients in their countries.

Terminal dues for international mail have risen by up to 42.6 per cent and will further increase by an additional 37 per cent by 2017.

rainbowloom

Rainbow Loom is so popular in Singapore too. I started to loom when I saw shops are selling the kits and refills. As such, I have decided to purchase it but to my surprise, I am also addicted to it.  I started to loom and use it as a hair band. It does secured tightly.

As time goes by, I am not satisfied with just the given colour bands from the kit, therefore, I have decided to buy more of other unique colours.

I have enjoyed looming and find that there are too many for my own use . As such, I have decided to loom it for my return customers.

Each rainbow loom bracelet will be randomly pick while stocks last (will replace with other gift).

inflation

Increase…. increase! Our expenses have increased. Everything is expensive.

Recently, DaWanda has sent out an email to notify us that from July, 2014 onwards, all commission from English platform will increase from 5% to 10% for each successful transaction.  This increase forcing us to think of our current prices for our handmade products.

I/We, are not professional seller nor big company that could absorb the extra increment of the commission. As such, I have to increase a couple of cents(euro) in each product or postage fees. I  seek your (buyers) kind understanding on this matter.
