When a website goes down…

Posted in General News at 10:15 am by Carrie Wigal

What a nightmare…

I don’t always check my email over the weekend, but Saturday I noticed this domain ( was down. I figured it was a problem with our webhost and expected it to get fixed on it’s own. I checked our other domains and they were all working just fine…they were hosted with different companies. So I waited.

Then Sunday, I checked again and still had dropped off the planet. By now, I was getting concerned, and pretty upset with my webhost. I emailed their customer support from another email account and discovered it wasn’t a problem with them, but rather my domain registration had expired 7 days ago. WHAT?

To ship or not to ship?

Posted in Ebay Business, Wallcovering at 9:33 pm by Carrie Wigal


Late last week I received a request to cancel an order that was made 24 hours prior. Unfortunately, we had already shipped it. Wait a minute…unfortunately? I thought quick shipping was a good thing. Apparently to some, it is not. When I informed the customer I couldn’t cancel it because it was already en route to her, she became hostile, threatening a dispute with her credit card company. Whoa, wait a minute.

I informed her she could simply refuse the package, and when we received it back, she would get a full refund since she had called to cancel it within 48 hours of placing the order. (Of course, we would have to eat the shipping charges.) I didn’t hear back from her yet, so I’m waiting to either receive the package back or a letter from the credit card company.

Why must people assume the worst? We are very reasonable people…there’s no need to resort to threats. Read the rest of this entry »

US Postal Rate Increase

Posted in Ebay Business, Wallcovering at 8:17 pm by Carrie Wigal

US Postal RateI was just reading about the US postal rate increase and was asked how this affected us. Since we do most of our shipping via the USPS, it certainly has an impact on us. However, it’s not as bad as we first thought it might be.

Besides the fact that our local post office is “out of” 2nd ounce stamps, which for the life of me I can’t understand. This rate increase has been expected for several weeks…this is a small town, surely they didn’t “run out”. I don’t know where the problem lies, but nonetheless it’s a pain to have to use a 5 cent, 10 cent & 2 cent stamp instead of just one 17 cent stamp. Read the rest of this entry »

So here’s the new address… Be sure to check it out and let me know what you think!
