Leaving Etsy Sale

Sprouty Doll

Due to Etsy's recent changes in fees and their past handling of factory-made products and random search algorithm changes, I have decided to leave Etsy. I feel like charging crafters and sellers a 5% fee on Shipping charges is an insane, greedy move that prices out international shipping and serves no positive purpose besides charging more money. All this on top of the 20 cent charge to list/relist items and I end up losing quite a bit, especially on inexpensive eyes.

Since 2015, I have lost 500% of sales and traffic year-over-year on Etsy while putting in twice the amount of work and buying twice the amount of ads. I will be keeping 4 listings with a higher price point that serve as redirection to my web store directly.

This listing serves as a sale to sell off the in-stock eyes that I have for Etsy. The shipping time is around 7~14 days, since I am working on a large project at the moment.

Eyes are handmade and generally take around 30 business days to make and ship. We hand make each and every pair of eyes in our small studio. Making eyes has become a passion, and we are inspired everyday to try new styles and processes. It can be difficult to keep producing new eyes, but we strive to always be creating new things and working to improve ourselves. Do you need a custom eye color or style? We can do that! Just send us a message or an email and we can discuss it! Every item is made to order, and processing times may reflect this. Normal orders take between 25 and 30 business days to ship. Due to the handmade nature of each item, small variations may occur. Please note that these variations are not considered defects and add to the quality of this handmade item. Colors may differ because of monitor settings, so colors may not be exactly the same as what you see. Items pictured may not be included in sale. Please check the item description for verification. Items ship through the United States Postal Service. Orders are generally shipped in a plain white plastic mailer. Gift wrapping is available on request for a small fee.
