"what does the 🔇 emoji in your status/display name mean?"
‣ if i put the mute emoji in my name or status, it means that i am alright, but offline for personal or mental health reasons. i'm ok, but i won't be responding to messages, asks, or posts."why a bigcartel and an etsy?"
‣ etsy collects vat for uk customers who would prefer that over paying customs when the package arrives.
additionally, etsy has marketplace and listing fees, meaning that all my products are priced higher on etsy than on bigcartel (usually only about $1-2). however, etsy has a marketplace, meaning people can find me there, whereas i have to drive all the traffic to my bigcartel on my lonesome.
(plus, there are some items i cannot list on etsy due to takedowns)
people are welcome to buy wherever they prefer!
