You walk outside to check your mail and when you open your mailbox there it is. The package you have been waiting for. The happiest of happy mail.
You purchased a beautiful pair of handmade earrings from an Etsy shop last week and you are so excited they are finally in your hands!
You run inside and gently open the poly mailer and pull out your order.
You are in aw.
The earrings you purchased were presented with such love and care.
You slowly unwrap the colorful tissue paper and reveal your new earrings.
They are nestled in a beautiful cardstock tag, have a thoughtful handwritten thank you note on the back and the shop owner included a business card with all their info!
You immediately feel a sense of importance. Knowing your purchase helped support another mama, just doing her thing to support her family, makes you feel proud.
Seeing all the love and effort that when into not only the quality of the earrings but also the presentation of the packaging makes you feel special and appreciated.
You can’t wait to start taking pictures of your new handmade earrings and sharing your experience all over social media
