joolaholic's Shop Announcement

Welcome to JOOLAHOLIC!

Valentine Gift discount coupon code good now through Feb. 29 is 2016VALENTINE10 for 10% off any purchase $30 or more. (Does not apply to any already-discounted items or shipping.)

PLEASE NOTE: In the wake of the recent USPS shipping price increase of a WHOPPING .50 for the 1st 3 oz of a US Domestic 1st Class pkg,* and .05 for each 3-4 oz thereafter, we have NOT raised OUR DOMESTIC shipping prices at all; while many sellers HAVE. In fact, we have not raised them at all through the past 4 or 5 USPS rate hikes, spanning from 2012-now. USPS seems to be hiking the cost semi-annually now, instead of just in Aug.; while fuel costs have come WAAAAYYY down compared to 2011-2014. Where is the price increase going???? Certainly NOT to more efficient service and less backtracking and lost/damaged pkgs!!!

OH, I almost forgot about those BIG, FAT USPS pensions for all the senior workers who were hired in the 70's, 80's & 90's before FEDEX gave USPS a run for its (our) money. Those BIG, FAT pensions are going to have to be paid SOMEHOW, right?? Ask ANY USPS worker, and they will know the EXACT DAY,HOUR, MINUTE, SECOND they retire and that BIG, FAT pension kicks in. THAT is what they are focusing on MOST of the time, NOT on serving Postal Customers the best they can!!!

* USPS 1st Class International and Priority International rates have also gone up and we WILL be forced to raise some of OUR shipping rates accordingly, especially for the heavier and higher value items, but also for the basic low value small items as well. Oh, heck, we'll just have to raise them all. Those 1000's of USPS retirees MUST have their pensions and who are we to stand in their way of living in leisure while we Etsy sellers are slaving to keep our bills paid every month??!! For 1st Class International, it is now about $2.50 MORE for 1-8 oz, which really penalizes purchases of lightweight single item smalls. Hopefully buyers will buy MORE from us as a result of this to get the full worth of the price up to 8 oz. for the same rate as for 1-3 oz.; THEN it jumps to $14.73 for 9 oz or more!!! YIKES!! A $4.70 jack-up. Also, new rules, wherein we CANNOT ship items over $400 value by 1stClass International OR priority Flat Rate Envelope or Small Flat Rate Box. USPS is hell-bent on choke-holding us all into PAYING MORE for International shipping. GGGRRRRRRR!!!!
I've got a hunch that most sellers will be accidentally underweighting their heavier 1st Class International pkgs. OOPS!

PAYMENT UPDATE NOTICES:

PAYPAL is currently enabled.* and as always this shop accepts Etsy Direct Checkout.

We also offer payment by Money Order, but only by pre-arranged agreement. We will not turn on the Money Order option, but simply have the buyer convo us letting us know that they wish to pay by Money Order (USPS POSTAL MONEY ORDERS ONLY accepted), and we will simply deactivate the listing until the money order actually arrives and is cashed and then reactivate to allow buyer the full checkout procedure. Again, we regret this inconveniencve, but it is also due to scammers checking out items and then 3 weeks later we receive a FAKE check or money order; or some buyers were checking out the items and NEVER sending anything at all!

LAYAWAYS
We offer very flexible layaway plans tailored to your budget. Inquire via convo for more info. No service charges, however layaways are only offered on full price merchandise.

100% of net proceeds from the sale of all items in this shop are applied toward the operating costs of WHSL 107.7, a local rural community - oriented FCC licensed radio broadcast facility.

*Due to a high % of recent fraudsters and scammers, (credit card chargebacks, etc.) we have had to randomly turn off/on the Paypal option for the shop. If you wish to pay with Paypal and the Paypal icon is not showing on the checkout page, you must convo us first and make arrangements for us to turn on the option temporarily for you when you are ready to check out. We will only leave it active for a short duration in that case, so you must be ready at that time. We regret that these measures must be taken, but since some will take undue advantage and abuse Paypal policies to the financial detriment of online sellers, we must take these measures to protect our business from such predators.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
