Etsy Newbies Info

Just a few things I've learned being somewhat new to Etsy.

In Terms of .....

Giveaways........Define if shipping will or will not be included in the Giveaway.

Shipping............after many different ways of packaging and shipping I've now standardized
on using PayPal. It is very easy to use in terms of calculating the best way you would like to ship. Confirmation of delivery and postage is less than going to the post office. Shipping labels are printed in one easy step and it includes a receipt for your records.

Packaging.........After trying all types of envelopes, I'm finding the thin plastic ones that
can be purchased at K-Mart are working well so far. They seem to hold up
during shipment and they are very light so weight is minimal.

Hope that helps some of the newbies like myself.

Wild Rosemary Restaurant - Bridgeville

Well it seems I was right about the Wild Rosemary in Bridgeville. I tried to get a reservation for a Christmas dinner for the women in my family and the best I could do was January 6, 2009. Of course it is the holiday season and I waited to long to call and our time need wasn't working. But I was happy to get January 6. I did get there for lunch yesterday with my husband and was ever so pleased again with the meal....especially my husbands. He had a flatbread with roasted chicken. It had such flavor it really impressed him. After our lunch, we were honored with the chef stopping by our table to say hello and chat. At which time, she mentioned that after the first of the year they may be changing their hours. She wanted feedback as to our reaction to the new hours. We were happy with them as long as they didn't move. sure to make reservations. Did I's a BYOB spot.
