Sweet As April Bonnet Release : March 3rd at 6pm EST

Bonnets released Saturday, April 7th at 6PM EST

 

 

.

Who’s ready for this PREVIEW!? My preview works like this: you’re able to browse exactly what the shop will look like on drop day, just there is no option to buy yet. That means you can see the bonnets that are offered in the size you need, although it is unable to show the quantities of each style/size.

.

There are a few options at checkout. One is with your credit card, one is PayPal Express and one is Apple Pay.  The credit card method seems to be slower because you need to enter all your information, PayPal Express and Apple Pay are proving to be a bit faster. There are no cart holds, things can be bought by another person even though you have added them to your cart. 

.

We have over 45 designs with more to come this week. There are, as of right now, 415 bonnets available. Since the last drop, I have gained quite a few more followers and many have been asking if these bonnets sell fast. In the past, yes they have, but I never know what each drop will bring. The bonnets are all 1-10 of a kind and most will not be able to be made again.

.

There are a few things that I will go over that make everything run smoothly for us here. After these drops happen we have over 300 orders to ship. Listed below are things that make it easier for us to run this like a well-oiled machine:

.

Please only purchase a bonnet if you REALLY want one. In the past, people have bought bonnets and want to return them instantly saying that they got "click happy". That requires us to relist the bonnet quickly so that other buyers can get what they want. This then causes a lot of confusion on the shipping end.

.

Please be sure your address is correct, we want to be sure your bonnet gets to the right house!

 

We cannot refund for misused coupon codes. With over 300 orders to fulfill sending refunds is just not possible.

.

If you are using a coupon code I recommend having it ready to copy and paste in the coupon code field, saving a little bit of time and avoiding typos.

 

We cannot combine shipping. In order for this to run smoothly we need to fulfill the orders they way they come in. Consider the extra shipping charge as insurance you got the bonnet you wanted.

 

We ship worldwide, to FPO addresses and you are not able to set up an account prior to the release but I assure you that checkout is quite easy if you have a PayPal account. 

.

I get flooded with DMs and emails after a drop. I try to answer everyone and make sure that things are dealt with, but I am only one person! I have help with all other aspects of this business (which I am so grateful for!) but I am the only person who runs my IG/email/website correspondence. Please try to be patient with me.

.

Lastly, if you have any questions you’d like to ask me personally I will be doing a live stream on Instagram Thursday of this week. I will announce the time in a post on IG. In that live stream, I will show the linings of the bonnets, talk about sizing and how to measure your babes noggin for the perfect fit.

.

I love this business more than I can even put into words. You have all lifted me up this past year. I started this whole thing a little over one year ago and it has been such a journey for me. One of tears, triumphs, obstacles, some heartbreak and a lot of joy. Your love for my brand and my family makes every sleepless night and queasy stomach worth it. I get so nervous for these previews hoping we have created something for everyone.

.

Give a round of applause to my team, please, they truly deserve it. Arleen who is my expert cutter and seamstress, Mom who is the trim maker, trimmer of bonnets and embroidered bonnet maker, I am the one who designs them all, takes all the photos and manages the marketing end of everything. New to our team is Kelsie, you all know her better as @waveyandbrody on instagram. She works remotely from Idaho and she's responsible for all these bonnet listings you'll see. I photograph and upload images to my server, notify her via text and magically my listings are done for me. She's a rockstar and I'm so thrilled to have her helping me with this business.  Then last but not least, there is Marc. He is my rock, the one who feeds me and the children/bathes those children/cleans house/groceries/ties all the bonnets/ships bonnets… never-ending support. We all do A TON to make this whole thing go. I’m exhausted just thinking about all of it.

.

I hope you love what I’ve designed because I surely do. Best job in the whole world, I feel like I’ve been given a gift and that gift is all of you. Thank you doesn’t even cover it.

.

Love and bonnets, guys

xo,

Carrie
