Hey everyone! Just so you all know, we're currently pretty dang backed up with orders...as in, my husband and I are waking up at 4:00 in the morning and working solid until about 8 or 9 P.M. while our poor neglected little toddlers watch way too much Donald Duck and eat way too many microwaved chicken nuggets. I hired my own teenage brother to be my secretary because I literally didn't have time to answer my emails any more, and so he reads me the emails and I dictate responses to him, making sure that he uses my words and flair of language! I hadn't realized how much time was being sucked up by doing all of my own customer service, but with my brother doing it, he is answering emails for 4-5 hours a day, straight! No wonder I was getting sooo behind! I'm truly sorry if I have missed any of your emails or taken longer than you would have liked to respond. The weight of answering them was seriously pressing on me, and just opening my inbox made me instantly sick to my stomach and panicked.
This is just simply our busiest time of year, and I'm dumb enough to have signed up for two massive renaissance festivals as well, so along with all of the custom orders, I have to figure out some magical way to pump out 300 more corsets for my next festival.I know, I know, I should just hire out some more seamstresses? Bleh. It's not that easy. I would have to take the time to seriously train them so they made the level of quality I needed, and I would need to get some kind of contract that would make them promise me that they wouldn't run off and steal my patterns and sell them....plus, they would need to be as fast as me, which is not humanly possible. ;)
We to thank you for all of your business and support, and acknowledge that you are the reason for our success! But, I would also like to plead with you and ask you to remember that we have our limits. If you want a corset by this friday, you should have ordered it two fridays ago, instead of today. Please respect the time it takes to make these, and we'll get everything you need made in a timely manner! Right now, if you order a corset custom fitted to you, your waiting time will be about 3 weeks, plus 2-3 days for shipping. Keep that in mind, especially for the Halloween Season! Thanks again! It's time for me to get back to work!
