Let me talk to you all today about my most favorite way of shopping…. That is, via Pre-Orders.
A lot of questions are raised, as to why would someone prefer to pre-order? How does that even work? Does it involve a lot of research on the part of buyer? Is the time-lag worth it ?
To be honest, it will definitely take a while for me to give you brief answers. So sit back with a small cuppa coffee/ chips, relax and enjoy.
While the Craft Industry on global basis is overflowing with new releases by lots of companies, I agree it is difficult to keep a track of them. So when it comes to craft shopping, we need to select what’s best and suitable to us.
In India, while we crafters are oceans away from USA based companies, our retailers like Letz Craft help us get our wishes fulfilled <3. The pre-order section is so very well organised, it’s easy and very convenient too. Once you pre-order with Letz Craft, we do check it’s availability and once done, you as a buyer can experience the excitement and butterflies in the stomach as you await for your products to arrive. It’s a lovely feeling. You see….. Sweet is the fruit of patience. 😉
I enjoy shopping my favorite Craft supplies from Letz Craft. While it is always convenient to get stuff which are already readily available, there are many times, I just love to pre-order from Letz Craft.
I love to put an extra effort to decide which products I want. I think this step is extremely important. Many many crafters tend to avoid this step and as a result, they don’t really buy products which could have been the best for a particular project.
Actually, while doing in depth research, you may also discover a lot of inspirational projects related to that project. That will make a big difference in your decision making.
C’mon now, don’t fuss about doing research. You’re the one who’s investing, you’re the one who intends to make the best project. So why not take that little extra effort?
Along with all the famous US brands, a lot of other companies whose names are not even remotely famous in the Indian Craft industry, but who have an AMAZING line of craft products can be availed via Letz Craft.
