Thanks for stopping by✨
In July 2021, I embarked on a journey to sell my handmade products on Etsy. I was delighted to receive a lot of support from many of you within a short period.
Towards the end of 2022, I noticed an increasing number of sellers on Etsy offering similar styles at lower prices, and their claimed shipping locations didn't always match reality. To cope with this competitive pricing, I had to adjust my own prices. However, as a small business producing locally in Sydney, I consistently found it challenging to compete with low-cost factories. Additionally, Australia's interest rate hikes in 2022-2023 added further pressure.
The final blow came in late August 2023 when Etsy suspended my shop. This was a devastating blow to me.
As a diligent jewelry store owner, I was physically and emotionally drained. I chose not to appeal and spent two weeks in self-reflection and recovery. During those two weeks, I contemplated giving up. The challenges and setbacks I faced were taking a toll on me.
However, during this time, I received several heartfelt emails from my valued customers inquiring about my whereabouts and whether Lazyooo was still in operation. These messages provided me with a tremendous amount of encouragement and reminded me of the wonderful people that surrounds Lazyooo.
In the end, I made the decision to pick myself up and start anew. That's why I'm here. In the past, the majority of my energy was dedicated to my Etsy shop, leaving my Shopify store somewhat neglected. But now, I am determined to reinvigorate Lazyooo and provide you with the exceptional service and products you've come to expect.
I want to express my deep gratitude to each and every one of you. Your support and understanding mean the world to me. It's your encouragement that has given me the strength to continue on this journey.
I am excited about the future and eager to serve you better than ever before. Thank you for being a part of the Lazyooo journey. Together, we can create something truly special.
With warm regards
