For Sale: Primitive Easter Set

I have decided that ebay is not the way to go. Not only do they take a chunk out of sales, they now want to tack a fee onto shipping, as well. I charge exact shipping, so why should I pay a fee for that? I do not understand their reasoning.

So, I am offering my Easter pieces as a set. This will include the hooked rug, the punch needle and the cross stitch piece.
The rug is 15" x 9 1/2", the punch needle is 7 1/2 x 4 1/2 and the cross stitch pillow is 4 1//2 x 3 1/2. This is nice if you would like matching pieces for a display or you can keep one and give the others as gifts. I think it would also look wonderful in an antique doll setting. If you are interested, you can email me with questions. I have it listed on my ecrater site.

The price is 140.00 for the set, which includes shipping and insurance, priority mail.
The rug is done with hand dyed wools and whipped with lopi yarn. I sewed the excess backing onto the back of the rug and added a cotton ticking backing as a cover. I have also added the new single pattern to the side panel. This is for both versions of the pattern, no instructions or color charts.

Also, for the rest of the week, until Sunday April 3, buy one pattern and get one of equal or less value, for free. Just order one pattern and put your free choice in the comment box.

And today it is Izzy's turn. Izzy loves bags and decided to make a little hut out of my bag and use the bolt of fusible as her bed.
When she decided to use it as a scratching post, I decided it was time to put it away;)

I like the idea of backing for a mini rug! I need to read my emails for Ebay, as I didn't read about the shipping fees.

Oh Debbie I hear about ebay and like you I will not take part in their fees any longer.

Love your Easter set and the price is right. Hugs, LenZie

Now that is just too much if they are tacking on a fee for shipping!

Your Easter set looks wonderful and like the backing of the rug.

Beautiful set Debbie.

I was disappointed by Ebay's new policy. Because it is intended to discourage sellers from overcharging on shipping, they should waive the fee on those of us that charge "actual shipping".

Your Primitive Easter Set is adorable Debbie :-) I also agree that eBay is really going to end up losing a lot of great artists by charging a fee to the sellers for shipping costs! To all the wonderful artists out there, your work is appreciated. Happy Spring Wishes :-)

That stinks! I think I know why. A few years ago, there was a mother of a child in my dd's class who was saying that she paid $22.00 for an a scooter and $50.00 for shipping (or something to that effect). This was so that they wouldn't pay commission. Have you tried Etsy? I have read some nice reviews about it! Vicki from Field Trips in Fiber blog has an Etsy account! Cheers!
