Another year and another Black Friday is here. And it feels sometimes bigger than ever, some of my customers even expected that I run discounts for Black Friday. Unfortunately, this is not a case. I thought to explain why.
First of all most of my items are custom made, personalised with an option to choose your size or colour. Every product I do is with the customer in mind, my materials are hand-picked and often the best and rarest. Everything I do will last for years to come and not designed as a disposable fashion.
Second, everything that I do, takes time, skills and patience. I am a one-man business and my task is not to compete with high street giants. I stand by everything I do and sell and have to price my items accordingly in order to keep my small business going and traditional craft alive.
I occasionally offer discounts on ready-made items in order to keep stock moving for some sample items.
