GrannysShoppe's Shop Announcement

Granny needs some time to prep for filing income tax among other things so will close the shop for just a short while beginning February 23rd.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to problems with postal services, some packages don't arrive when they should. So if you want something ahead of time please take that into account. Items that should only take 1-3 business days could take 10 business days. This doesn't happen with all packages. NOTE that my basic shipping fee has risen to add tracking to most packages. Use Priority on anything expensive and you need soon. Its an additional $2. Look for the listing with a little girl in a Minnie Mouse costume.

This shop is my hobby and the prices I put on each piece I make represents what it cost me to make. There is no extra for labor or profit. At my age I work slow.

But I continue creating new pieces with the help of shops like Pluffbeads, DwaynesCabochons, thedanglediva, and others where I get lovely briolettes to make earrings or pendants. So when you see lovely wire wrapping on a gemstone or whatever, its been done by someone whose shoppe is here in Etsy. Not done by me.

Most of the time these gemstone pendants or charms are for birthstone pieces. Like now I have amethyst for the month of February. Next month, I'll be listing some genuine aquamarine pieces.

When some items don't sell, I donate them to medical research fundraisers, other charities, pr give them as gifts, etc. Occasionally, I'll keep one for myself.

I collect a large variety of high quality stones and beads whether semi-precious gems or beautiful Czech and Swarovski - and most recently - polymer clay beads. I also have a large collection of findings of sterling silver, gold fllled, silver plated, gold plated, and brass. I've started mixing copper findings into some of my pieces.
