So, blah-blah-blah, you are probably thinking, Who's the winner? We had 1690 entries. The winner of the boots is entry #1196 Launa Boulanger. You can see the drawing from Random.org, and how I found this number by clicking here. There were so many more entries than I expected, so I picked two more winners, Lindsay Warren and Jennifer Posegate, who we will each get one of our embellished tees and you can see those drawings here. To all three winners, please email orders@joyfolie with your name and address so we can mail you your prize!
Also, as a special and sincere thank you to those who spread the Joyfolie name across Facebook like wild fire, I am offering a 25% discount on our embellished tees with the code TEE4U, good through Saturday.
Finally, I put together a few Q&A's about our business. If you have a question that is not answered here, please post it in the comments, and I will respond there.
Thank you,so very much for all your amazingly positive energy. I can't tell you how much of myself and how many sleepless nights I have poured into this business. I am truly humbled and blessed by your encouragement!
Q: Is everything sold out? The items say they are “out of stock” or “choose a smaller quantity;" are they sold out?
A: When you get the message "Either product is out of stock or choose a smaller quantity" it means the item is sold out. Joyfolie is a small company and right now we are putting out very low levels of shoe and boot inventory. This is partly because I am actively working with manufacturers to convert my designs into firm-soled shoes. I am working on an order of several thousand pairs, which will run up to toddler size 12. In the meantime, we do stock our apparel and accessories and white fur boots. We also relist more shoe inventory every week, by posting specific listing times on our our blog and Facebook. These shoes usually sell out within seconds of being entered in.
Q: Is there a secret to purchasing a pair of Joyfolie shoes?
A: As you may have realized, my handmade shoes are offered several dozen at a time and tend to sell out immediately. I would recommend having the item up a few minutes before I put in the inventory, and then refresh the size you desire for several minutes before and after the listing time. I also recommend Firefox for your browser, rather than Explorer. Please don’t become discouraged is you are not able to purchase a pair. I can empathize with how frustrating this is as a shopper and am working extremely hard to grow our shoe and boot inventory.
Q: Do you offer custom orders?
A: No. Please understand I wish I could, but I spend most of my time working with manufacturers to try and grow our inventory on a larger scale. This is challenging enough, especially in tandem to being a mom to two small kiddos.
Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes. Please select this shipping option at the time of checkout. We ship USPS first class, which takes 2-4 weeks for the shipment to arrive.
Q: Do you wholesale?
A: Demand has so far outstretched supply that we do not wholesale our products. We are working on drastically expanding our inventory, and will reopen wholesale lines when that happens. Right now, we are project spring/summer 2011.
Q: What sizes to you offer? Have you thought about making shoes for boys or for women?
Our handmade shoes are available up to toddler size 8. When we transition to manufactured shoes, we will offer up to toddler size 12. We do not have any immediate plans for boys shoes or youth sizes; our first project beyond toddler shoes will be branching into womens.
