Anyone who sells a product knows that shipping plays a very important role in the seller and buyer relationship. Not only does the package provide suitable protection for transit to another place, but the label provides tracking information that the both the seller and buyer can use to be sure the package arrives in a timely manner.
In addition, each and every basket that leaves my Wisconsin home, is personally packaged by me as carefully as I've spent weaving it. I do my best to provide a sturdy box, sufficient protective packaging material, a clear label, and enough tape to seal the package without being a hindrance to the person opening it.
I also like to add a few personal touches, and usually include a small handmade gift. For large orders this is sometimes a small basket woven from some of the bits and pieces from my shop. For other orders it may be a small item sewn on one of my vintage machines. Often times I add pretty seasonal stickers or cutouts on the outside of the box.
I want the customers I serve to know that I've taken extra care with their order and their package. Income from Attic Treasures Basketry helps us to serve the surrounding community by providing classes and educational programs that promote basketry as an art and tradition. We hope to continue our presentations and serving YOU the customer with a well made product that also arrives in a safe and timely manner. We care about our customers and want you to know that we do.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Yesterday I was putting the finishing touches on this little front porch basket, and was trying to decide what I wanted to use for a finish. Recently I had an inquiry for a white wash finish and I thought I'd try a little Dixie Belle Paint that I had in my crafting stash. I pulled out the white wash glaze and mixed it with a little water and brushed it on my basket with an inexpensive paint brush. Oh yeah! Perfect stuff.
I was really pleased with how well this product soaked in without being clumpy. I've tried spray paints and acrylics before and was never totally happy with them. I also like the fact that there is no smell and the clean up is super easy. I'm not getting paid to advertise this, but no doubt I'll be returning to Dixie Belle for sure.
Be sure and check out my events page. We'll be at Horicon Living History days on May 12th and 13th where I'll be demonstrating basket weaving and will have some items for sale. I'm also planning on having a few things that I've sewn on the Singer Treadle we restored this year. Hope you'll visit us at Horicon Living History Days.
Have a blessed day!
