Seller not answering convos?

I messaged a seller regarding turnaround time on a custom item since I need it before August. It's been two days and she's listed new items since then so I know she's been online, and it says she's taking requests for custom items, so I'm just wondering if it would be too soon to message her again without seeming obnoxious?

Two days seems a long time, I would message again, especially since you do have a deadline.
I'd message her again -- if you don't hear from her in a day, I'd move on. Sounds like a non communicative seller -- you don't need the aggravation!
2 days with no response? I'm not sure I'd return - especially if she is listing new things.
I would convo her again. It is possible she never received the first one.
As a seller I would think she would have answered you before now. If you are on a time constraint are you sure you really want to order something custom from some one who has not answered you promptly? That would worry me. good luck
Lots of Handmade sellers are closed today for the protest, so that would take up one day, if they are closed right now.
Also, sometimes the convo system gets a little wonky and convos are not delivered for some reason (there are many previous threads about this in "Bugs" forum).
Good Luck!
I would message her again. Every once in a blue moon I will have it happen where a convo gets buried or I don't get a notification about it or I will think I have replied and it ends up I did not.
I would convo her again just in case she missed it.
I just emailed her through her website so hopefully she gets that. I know convos on here do get a bit wonky and she does have stellar reviews, so I'm hoping she just overlooked it. Fingers crossed.
