WishUponStarfish's Shop Announcement

COUPON CODE ANNIVMONTH20 will save you 20% on any order now through the end of the month! I am so excited to celebrate TWO YEARS making brides all over the world happy with my affordable hangers & creations so this is my way to say THANK YOU and I appreciate you!

WE ARE PLEASED TO PROUDLY OFFER PRICE MATCH! I am the lowest price, and finest quality hanger shop! To prove my commitment to my cherished customers, if you find a lower price in any other shop on Etsy, I will meet it plus a coupon for 15% less on your order! Just link me to the listing and tell me the number of hangers you want to order and I will take care of the rest. :-) Don't be fooled! Hanger sellers come and go, and unfortunately once they take your money and no product arrives for the big day, there is nothing but a headache! Many customers of other shops come to me to help when they ordered with some of these shops then never receive their product. :-( A low price doesn't mean anything if you have nothing to show for it and a promise of quicker shipping doesn't mean anything if the product never comes! My shop celebrates our second anniversary next month and we are still going strong! We are thrilled to be a part of your occasions and love all of our customers. 15,000+ happy customers later, I am still here and I am not going anywhere. Don't be fooled by imitations - I am THE hanger seller in South Carolina! Don't fall for "glowing" fake reviews on some shops - sometimes you can tell by the date the reviewer joined Etsy! :-)

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION*** It has recently come to my attention via some seemingly confused reviews and messages from confused customers that Etsy is now sending out "reminders" to leave a review. In all cases for my shop these will be received BEFORE it's time for your order to ship. These are 100% AUTOMATED messages that do not take into account the production time for individual shops and is sent to all Etsy customers of all shops without taking the date it should be shipped into account at all. Our production time is STILL running at the time frame stated in the listings, my shop information and announcement which right now is about 7 weeks. Please do not think that for some reason you need to review your purchase before it is received as a result of this automated message and I apologize for any confusion this has caused!***

THANK YOU so much for your business and allowing me to be a part of your special occasions for nearly two years now! I am so excited to continue to provide beautiful products at amazing low prices.

Current production times are APPROXIMATELY 7 weeks, this depends on order volume which is really high coming into wedding season so it certainly could be longer. The best way to make sure you have plenty of time to receive is to order early, and also to provide the date of your event spelled out (like August 5, 2015) so it's easily searchable in order notes. Also, please note that should you need items sooner a rush order is always a possibility, please send me a conversation via Etsy to discuss options.

We are so proud to have nearly 16,000 orders since opening our shop and that means literally THOUSANDS of very satisfied customers! Some send their thanks and gratitude via message instead of posting a public review but THOUSANDS of people are COMPLETELY happy with our service and love our products. That makes me so happy and so proud! Thank you to each and every one of my treasured customers!

***If you have a question for me please message me via Etsy to ensure a timely response! I do my best to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours. It is wedding season, and I am a one-woman show, so please allow time for me to respond. I really appreciate your patience! I also have a very aggressive spam filter on my email and receive hundreds of messages per day so to ensure they are all seen and I am able to respond please use Etsy conversation instead of email. I pride myself on excellent service and if I don't see your message I cannot reply! :-) Thank you so much!***

Please note that production times are APPROXIMATE and are the best estimate I can make based on current order volumes. Thank you for your understanding! Please also know that it may be possible to rush an order but there may be an additional charge for this expedited service. Please message me if you would like to inquire about a possible rush order.

Normal time frame is about 7 weeks but that is approximate, and dependent upon order volume - it could be longer, which is difficult to pinpoint precisely because some orders are for 1 item and some are for 50+! I hand-create each item myself. The best way to ensure you have your order in time for your event is:

1) Please provide event date in the order notes spelled out (example - July 25, 2014 instead of numerically - example - 7/25/14 - because numeric dates do not come up in order searches - it sees ALL numbers such as zip codes, street addresses, etc.)

2) Order early!

3) I respond ASAP to all communication from my cherished customers (within 48 hours in most cases.) I am the only person working on ALL aspects of the shop, so this means that each message I reply to is a hanger that waits longer to be created. If you have provided me with a date you need your order in the format listed above, you are ALL SET. :-) If not, I encourage you to provide me with the info ASAP so that I can schedule accordingly. At my pricing structure, demand for the products is extremely high! If the 7 weeks approximate time frame has not passed and this is not a rush order, it's not yet time for the order to ship. Please take a quick look at the calendar prior to messaging. 7 weeks is not a long time considering the fact that since April of 2012, I create and ship 150+ hangers per day, 7 days a week, all by myself, shipping 6 days per week. It doesn't take 7 weeks to create a hanger but it takes 7 weeks at least to get TO the order, as so many brides want to have these for their wedding and are excited to take advantage of my amazing pricing! I am so happy that you are one of them. Thank you so much for your patience while your order is created! :-)

I am a full-time Etsy shop owner and recent bride (married in June 2012) and creating for my customers is not only something that I really enjoy doing but I truly feel that it's my calling. I believe that I have inherited the creative gene from my Mom, who could make absolutely anything and from my Dad, who was a country songwriter. The creativity comes from both sides! :-) I am so excited to be able to create new and exciting items for my customers and nothing makes me happier than to hear how much they love their purchases.

I take my customers and their orders very seriously and if you are not happy, I am not happy. As we come into wedding season, production times are currently about 7 weeks. Please keep in mind this is an approximate time frame estimate as all items are hand-created and my pricing and quality makes brides very happy so this time frame is only approximate and is dependent upon order volume! :-)

Please check out the latest album of hangers we have created for happy brides all over the world:

Bling is my thing! I love to create blinged-out shoes for brides or prom, custom wedding dress hangers for the bride and wedding party, creative wedding accessories, starfish and seashell bridal bouquets, silk floral bouquets arrangements and so much more! Everything in our store is made with love, right here at the beach. We love to do beach-themed but that's definitely not all! We are happy that you're here, please take a moment to look around. We love to help brides to make their vision into their perfect wedding day. Custom orders are our specialty! If you don't see it, contact us and we can make your dream a reality.

My heart goes out to the brides who have let me know that they have placed orders with OTHER shops for wedding or prom items, only to never receive them. :-( Rest assured, you won't have that issue if you order from me. I am all about integrity and also take real pride in my work! :-)

If you have questions, please send me a conversation and ask. :-) I try to respond very quickly because I know how important those answers are to helping you in your purchasing decisions and event planning.

The story below is how I live my life, and that it is about starfish makes it even more significant to me:

"An old man walking along a beach at dawn noticed a young man ahead of him picking up starfish and flinging them into the sea. Catching up with the youth he asked what he was doing."The starfish will die if they are still on the beach when the sun roasts them with its mid-morning heat," came the answer. "But the beach goes on for miles, and there are millions of starfish," countered the old man. "How can your effort make any difference?" The young man looked at the starfish in his hand and threw it safely in the waves. "It makes a difference to this one," he said."

Thanks so much for stopping by! :-)
