Lush Embellishments

Those of us who sell, whether it be online or in an actual brick and mortar shop, know the value of presentation. 
It's an art, really, and it can make or break your reputation as a merchant.

When I began selling on ETSY last year, I quickly learned that to be successful when sending out orders, you need to do more than just slap some bubble wrap around your trinkets and toss some tissue paper in randomly.
I mean, that would be serviceable enough, but would it be memorable? Would it motivate a customer to not only leave you glowing FEEDBACK, but also to be a repeat buyer?

You see, I'm not only a seller, but I too am frequently a customer! And believe you me, I take note when a seller goes that extra mile to make sure that their orders are sent out not only quickly and safely, but also with a bit of flair as well.

Meet Kelli from
Seasonal Delights on Etsy.

Aren't these just lovely?
Wouldn't they add that extra oomph to your vintage pretties?
I sure do think so, which is why I've become a HUGE fan of Kelli's Etsy Shop of late.

She not only has a huge assortment of gift tags, but stickers, gift bags, bookmarks, greeting cards, ribbon trim and gift tag sets, adorned journals, muslin favor bags, stationery sets, garland banners, scrapbook embellishment kits, and much, much more!

I've begun sending my Etsy Orders out with Kelli's beautiful tags and stickers attached, and the response has been incredible.
Enough talking, here's a peek at what you can find in the
Seasonal Delights Etsy Shop.











And just in time for Easter...

Pretty nifty stuff, huh?
Pay Kelli a visit at her ETSY Shop soon, I'm sure you'll be able to find something you just can't live without!

Kelli also has a wonderful blog,
There Is No Place Like Home .
Head on over and say hi!

Next post, breaking news on my booth situation! It's good!

Have a great weekend!

Hello Anne and you hit the nail on the head for sure. I always make sure my packages go out beautifully wrapped so when they are received, they are like a gift from above. She has great tags and while I make tags myself, I love to buy them too. I am off to have a look, Char

Brenda Pruitt said...

I so appreciate all those extra sweet touches when I receive an Etsy order! I'll visit her.

You are so right about the art of presentation. When I sold on Ebay and even at the local Craft Fairs that I do, I wrap everything in pretty tisse paper, add a cute little freebie of sort sort and a hand written Thank you card! It does go a long way and I do remember the sellers i buy from who go that extra mile!

Debra@CommonGround said...

Love ALL of these, I'm going to go and check her store!
love you!

Blue Creek Home said...

I try to send my packages quickly and wrapped nicely, but I haven't posted any feedback as a seller. I need to go to Etsy right now and find out how.
Thanks for making me pay more attention! And, I can't wait to check out Kelli's shop

House and Garden Boutique said...

Wow, they are just spectacular.....everything you showed us. I will definately check out her shop online. Thanks for sharing this treasure with us!

Unknown said...

Oh Anne...what perfect timing this post was for me!

I just this morning put a deposit on a 100 square foot space at an antique mall that is jopening later in the Spring here in my little town! I can't believe it!

Like you, I'm just starting to sell, but I've been a BUYER for more years than I care to admit...ha! Packaging and Presentation IS EVERYTHING. My mind is buzzing with ideas.

Any words of wisdom you have for me would be appreicated and I'm going over to that great etsy shop now!



Theresa said...

Love all the goodies and I WILL go shop with her! Love the Wedding tag and I just so happen to have one to go to in May! Anne, enough with the tease:) I can't wait to hear good news about your booth! Hugs from Georgia!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Anne,

All wonderful tags and yes, it is so important sending out nicely presented gifts and packages.
Look forward to the breaking news about your booth.

Happy weekend

Gypsy Fish said...

Hi Anne: I received my magazine today....hooray it's just beautiful thanks so much! And yes, I can testify that Kelli's tagas are wonderful...they were a sweet little extra surprise when I opened my hand written card from you! Thanks again Anne!

Rosemary said...

Love it!
I always try to add extra touches to my wrapping as well.
Have a nice weekend,

Sue (Vintage Rescue) said...

That's one thing that's been holding me back in opening my etsy shop, so I'm glad you've addressed it. I could start today if I didn't care about presentation and the nicer touches. I want mine to be just right, so I'm not opening until I have my plan! Thanks!

Lisa said...

Those are so wonderful! I'm gonna have to buy something from your etsy so I can get one! I'll be paying Kelli a visit too! Speaking of have something on the way from me too. Lisa
PS Glad to see another Gaga fan!

Nancy @ Live love laugh said...

Kelli was the first blog I ever visited and that is what started me. Hers was also the first etsy shop that I ever purchased from. Her tags are so sweet and everyone notices them when I give a gift. Go and see everybody!

Farmgirl Paints said...

Hi Anne,
Thanks for stopping by and for the sweet words:) It's so nice to "meet" you:)

I agree that the extra mile definitely makes an impression. Those tags were fabulous. May have to visit her shop. Thanks again.

Her tags are wonderful and so beautifully crafted. I think any customer would be pleased to have one of her tags attached to their order.
I'll be sure and check her out.

Ooh, the Etsy stuff is too gorgeous! Thank you for stopping by, it's wonderful to meet you. I LOVE your blog - so much fun on one page - your energy and enthusiasm really shine through! I'll definitely be following you around Blogland..Rachaelx

LuLu Kellogg said...

I love all my buyers to feel as if they are getting a special gift when they receive my packages. Taking a little bit more time to do a little extra goes a long way :)


Linda @ A La Carte said...

I have been working on an Etsy shop and I'm glad to read your thoughts on presentation when sending a purchase. I have been collecting tissue paper and ribbons and trying to come up with a wrapping plan. Love those tags, might have to invest in some of them.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Looks like a great shop- I'll visit! Thanks for sharing!

Sarah said...

Anne, I agree. Service and presentation are everything! I think the packaging makes a lasting impression. Too many venders these days don't pay attention to that small detail. We have a local shop who gift wraps everything in a beautiful box with satin ribbon embossed with the store's name. I know it must be an expense for this shop keeper. No matter if one spends $10 or $1000's of dollars, the package leaves the store looking the same. I love to buy gifts at this shop for that very reason. Love these tags. I'm headed over to check out this site now. Thanks for sharing.

June said...

Anne you are so right about what it feels like to get an order and have it wrapped up with some pretty 'extras'. A few months ago I ordered something from Alice W. and it was such a small order, but when I got it, she had put so many lovely extras in that I thought there must be some mistake. But then you have to know Alice to know that it's just her generous soul, but it had a huge impact on me. I think presentation is everything.

The Little Red Shop said...

Oh, so PRETTY!!! Thank you for the introduction!

I hope you're having a lovely weekend!

They really are beautiful! Trouble is as a reasonably high volume ebay seller (sorta!) I do find it very hard to find the time to tissue wrap, write little notes etc. But I do think one of these little tags would do the trick!

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

I agree! I like to offer items like this among my vintage treasures in my booth too. The mix is fabulous! Thanks for sharing!

Olde Tyme Marketplace said...

How sweet of you to plug a fellow esty gal. I had never heard of her and because of you...I ran over there and started drooling imidiately! She has wonderful stuff and you are so right about "presentation is everything"...I think that is my motto...I say it in my head constantly when displaying. I always try to look at the finished product thru the customers point of view.
Hope your day is wonderful!

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

Those tags are amazing, I can't wait to go check out her blog!

Joni said...

These are adorable. I love them.

The Flying Bee said...

Love it! I can't wait to check out her Etsy! Congrats on the new booth space and I will be praying for you.
