Joopy Gems Etsy store signs

For anyone who didn’t catch in our newsletter, we now have two Etsy stores: JoopyGemsAmerica and JoopyGemsHongKong. This is something I have had to do for somewhat arcane reasons involving Etsy’s payments system and their inability to change the country bank account on my old Etsy shop. However, it’s also going to be good for UK customers who wish to shop via Etsy rather than our website, as I understand that orders from the US attract a Royal Mail ‘admin fee’, whereas those from Hong Kong do not. The Hong Kong store has a few more and some different items than the US; there are beads and our uniques are obviously different – all of the rose cut freeforms, watermelon tourmalines and uncalibrated mixed cuts.  To shop our US Etsy store, click here; to shop our Hong Kong store, click here. We’ve had no end of changes with Etsy, and really I should have made the one mahoosive change a year ago when we opened in the USA but I was trying to save myself from trouble and my customers from becoming confused. Of course I should have known there is no path of least resistance, I quote this to my ten year old at least once a day so really it’s a case of physician, heal thyself and here we are. Finally. No more changes. I promise. Phew!
