Whether you charge for the mug and shipping separately or if you jack the price of the mug and list as Free Shipping…that’s up to you. I do both. And sometimes switch back and forth if something isn’t selling. My hubby IS the shipping department here and he has a fast process for using the 7 X 7 X 6 Priority Mail boxes from the USPS.

How to Open and Launch an Etsy Shop ~ Part One – The ...

In one shop, I use Etsy’s feature of offering free shipping if the buyer spends $35. Also, Etsy recently introduced OFFSITE ADS. Shops are automatically opted in to that program. If you make over $10,000 in a year you have no choice but to be part of the program. As a new shop, you can opt out.

Thrifting Tip~ No One Can Know Everything About Everything ...

No one can know everything about everything. Most of the time, this is the frustration I face when I'm out thrifting. I have many niches, (pretty much anything that'll turn a buck) but I know I'm passing things on the shelves and tables that are worth more. I just don't know it.

Oneida Flatware and the Betty Crocker Catalog ~ A Vintage ...

NOTE: If you would like help identifying your Betty Crocker silverware pattern, please see the post: Top 10 Betty Crocker Silverware patterns by Oneida.
