Friday Fails - Shipping Costs

So running an Etsy shop with my wonderful Mother-in-love is so much fun!  We get to meet new people and share our love of handmade products.  We try to keep our prices reasonable and affordable including our shipping costs.  Well, this brings me to my fail.  Myra at My Blessed Life has asked us to share our fails. 

You have all read about how much MiMi loves the hand knit dishcloths I made her.  If you missed that post, you can find it here.  Anyway, I have not really sold any of these dishcloths and wondered what the problem could be.  The price seems reasonable at $9.00 for a set of three.  The colors are bright and fun, but they still were not selling.  Well, I looked at the listing and realized I was charging $3.50 for shipping!!!  The shipping has been changed to $2.00 if purchased alone and $1.00 if purchased with another item.  Much more reasonable.  Don't you think?

And of course, I have to share some pictures of MiMi's Favorite Hand Knit Dishcloths.
