Turn around time is clearly stated as 10-14 business days for my shop and comes noted in the receipt you receive when your order is placed. 10-14 business days would have put this order shipping date out by January 26th. Order shipped out January 22nd, the day after I came home from the hospital, where I spent 6 days from complications of the flu. This feedback is premature by an entire week.

I purchased 6 of the cupcake candles. They were suppose to ship on Jan 16th. I sent the seller a message, asking if they had shipped. I still haven't received a response regarding when they will be shipped. At this time i am very dissatisfied.

About

How Ugly Duckling Designs Got It's Start

When I started my business back in 2003, I was strictly creating outfits for the concrete and plastic decorative geese that people have on their porches. I needed a cute name and came up with Ugly Duckling Designs....where we make your Ugly Duckling into beauties!
But I wanted to create more than just clothing for geese, so I decided to expand into the realm of candles. We had launched in the festival market, with our wax dipped critters and electric candles. They were a huge hit...big enough for us to branch out and create a website.
Twelve years later, I am still the sole designer,and creator from start to finish. I don't have the time to sew any longer and have retired our goose outfit lines. But now, you'll still find my dipped critters, electric candles, and also our bakery and primitive candle lines. I also supply over 50 retail stores with my products through my websites wholesale division. It keeps me super busy but I wouldn't want it any other way.

Blessings,
Michelle
