Offer: Looking for Women Handmade Items (REVISED JANUARY 14, 2014)

Happy New Year!

I pray that 2014 will be a blessed year for you and your families.

Since posting this last year, I have had several women and women groups contact me. I have even purchased items or received items to sell for these women/women groups.

However, we are finding that it costs just as much, if not more to ship these items. This is not good since the women/women groups are trying to sell their items for profit.

Also, I cannot mark items up too high to make a profit, since many of these items are sold here in the US for far less.

With this in mind, from this day forward, I will be willing to purchase and sell your items, only if you can pay for the shipping costs. I cannot afford to pay for shipping costs at this time, especially if it costs more to ship the items than the items. It is a loss for me. Also, if your items costs more to ship than the price that you will receive for them, it is a loss for you. We want to be able to sell the items here and make a profit for both of us, not lose money.

I am starting a crowd funding page to raise money that will help pay for shipping of these items. Until then, unless you or your group can pay for the shipping, I won't be able to buy items and pay for the shipping too.

In the meanwhile, if there are any international women living in the USA, that make items, and would like to participate,
I greatly appreciate it. The shipping costs will be relatively low being shipped within the US. Just keep in mind if the shipping outweighs the profit that you are getting for your items, it's probably not a good deal.

I thank you in advance for your time,

May God Bless you!
