Bits 'n Bobs
Buttons and hairclips may not be legal tender, but pottery shards - surely?
I'm trying to find a casual way to announce that I'll be raising the prices in my Etsy shop next week, but it's something I'm so squeamish about....
I'm sure every international Etsy seller understands the frustration of trying to keep up with fluctuating currency exchange rates: my prices are worked out in Rands and then converted to US$ for listing on Etsy, and I try to keep them constant for as long as I can. It's been a while, though, since I last checked what these US$ prices convert back to, and things have gotten a bit out of line.
On Monday the 7th of February I'll be raising all my prices to better accommodate the current exchange rate.
