Had a bee carted and was working my way through. Got to Paypal and took me to an empty cart page. Not that I had much hope but after her talking about changing the carting system I thought maybe I was gonna have a lucky day.

"Thank you all also for your continued interest in my studio sales and welcome to all the new subscribers to my mailing list! I do have an online sale scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday 29th June at 10pm (UK local time, find out what time that is in your part of the world here) I think that the way we ran the last sale worked well in slowing down everything a little so I have decided to do the exact same thing again this time, with one exception that I think everyone who tried to purchase from me last time will thank me for and thats the check out procedure! More on that in my FAQ section and sincere apologies to any who were affected by that last time, I have had "words" with bigcartel about this!"


I carted a piece in your last sale but when it came to paying for it my art was empty!
I am so sorry about that! I've had so many people contact me with this problem and I was horrified to learn that the checkout procedure I had changed to (on the advice of Bigcartel) meant that multiple people could "cart" an item and the first person who paid would be the on to get it! To me that seems pretty annoying and I know that I would have been rather cross if it had happened to me, so I have changed it back to the standard check out as soon as I realised and hopefully things should run much more smoothly from here on out :)

She obviously cared enough to try. I'm sure she is bummed and flooded with sob stories. Would be awesome if she realized so many of her collectors were such douches it's not worth her time and just raise her prices.

As a side note I was trying for a friend on today's drop and had to laugh at the descriptions of the products. They're just so cute and adorable!!!! Your drawing will be carefully wrapped by magical disney birds with a magical silk dressing, covered in magical pixie dust and topped with a special scented-paper note by yours truly!

Makes it even funnier when itz probably sum dude in his mom's basement who gets one :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

Good idea, distance yourself from this. There's no way you would ever buy one of these, buuuuuut.

I am so glad that positive, pleasant, optimistic people don't annoy me any more. I'm a much happier person.
