NOT Buyers Remorse??
First off, Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
I have some time before I have to get cooking and was talking to Aaron (Mr. Kate&Barrel ;)) about a message I received last night. A message that I get on a constant basis from people with NOT Buyers Remorse.
I'm sure you are asking, what in the world are you talking about, Kate?
Well it's the remorse of NOT buying something. My furniture pieces, as are all artists pieces, one of a kind vintage treasures. I have not ONCE found an exact duplicate of a dresser, night stand, buffet, vanity, etc.... Doing so would really truly be like finding a needle in a haystack.
So when I get the message, "Oh my, I was just going to purchase this and it has SOLD! NO! Please let me know if you find one like it again..." there isn't much I can do and most likely will not be finding one like it again. (just me being honest)
My husband always asks me, "Are you going to cry if you don't get it, if the answer is yes, then just get it"
I know, it's not that easy as we all have to look at our finances and make sure we are fiscally sound to make big purchases. I get this and that is why I offer my interest free payment plan options. (unfortunately square eliminated theirs) Etsy has even started up there own payment plan options as well through Klarna. I don't know much about, however, have seen the offerings.
Essentially if you love it buy it before someone else falls in love with it and gets to it before you.
Also, as a side note, 2020 has been a rollercoaster year for us all and I know a lot of small businesses are struggling this year. PLEASE when shopping for your holiday gifts and treasures try to shop small business as much as you can.
All the best,
