Win A Gift for Your Favorite Seller AND You

I am a true believer in the idiom "what goes around comes around" or loosely translated "Do unto others as you would want others to do unto you". In saying that, I am proposing a contest for our readers.

I, as a consumer and seller, feel very strongly about customer service. It is the back bone of what makes the difference between a mediocre business and an awesome one. John and I strive to be just that - awesome.

So, in appreciation to those people who go that extra length to make a customer feel good about what they just bought - we are going to reward them with a free gift from our shop.

The rules are simple:

If you think one of your sellers falls in the category of "Awesome customer service" - submit their name and/or URL to the comments section of this blog AND what it was that made them so awesome.

At the end of this month John and I will read your testimonials submitted and determine who will be the winner of this contest along with the person who submitted their name. (valued at $20 - plus shipping for both the nominee and person who submitted it)

Kindness and consideration should be rewarded. Make it count and pass it forward.

The free gift will come from Leather Made Nice.

Thanks and have a great day,

Anne & John


  1. What a beautiful idea! Customer service does make or break a purchase for me. If a transaction was A+ quality, I will be customer for life. It's just that simple. This is a wonderful contest, unlike any other I've heard about!

  2. What a wonderful Idea! My favorite seller is lilikoidesign, she makes superb jewelry and I love the style the reason I am nominating her is I got a bracelet she made and one of the components was faulty no fault of hers and she asked me to send it back and she would fix it. HEr stuff is always packaged really nice and she is super friendly with questions, I will keep shopping with her. :)

  3. That's a wonderful nomination, Amanda. I will definitely have to visit her shop!

  4. What a wonderful way to pay it forward! I'd like to enter our (as in me and my cats) favorite seller CasbahKitten which includes Rita and her cats Jane and Alice. Rita sends fabulous packed packages of cat toys with an extra Jelly Bean toy tucked in for good measure. It's obvious they are packed with care! Plus, because my cats are tried and true lovers of her products, she sent a surprise package one time of her newest toy for them to test out! She donates a portion of her proceeds to the local humane society where she adopted Alice from too. She is a very special seller! Her blog is

  5. Thank you so much for your wonderful testimonials. I am sure it will be very difficult to decide. I would love to give everyone involved a gift but I will leave the judging to my family panel. I will post the winner this evening.
    Thank you again and stay posted.
