I finally had time to re-do and correct my website shopping page! You can now shop for my gem trees without having to register on Etsy. I use PayPal for the shopping cart and checkout. Your payment will be very secure with PayPal, and you shouldn't have to register on PayPal to checkout (please let me know if I'm wrong on this!). The nice thing is, PayPal offers buyer and seller protection, as well as confirming shipping addresses and automatically sends the delivery confirmation number once the order is processed. I've used their services for several years now without issue.
As for the shopping experience, the gem trees are divided into their styles (mini, large, pine, wispy willow, etc.). The cost you see per item includes shipping and taxes (if applicable). Everything over $55 ships for free, just like on Etsy. I use either First Class Mail or Priority Mail for my shipping, so you'll get your order within a week.

I will be adding some very special, special edition glass chip Gem Trees tomorrow! They are made of a special iridescent glass chip. I have the following colors available: red, blue, aqua, purple, brown, yellow, green, black, pink, orange. They are mounted with clay, into a glass candle base. This will be my entry level product, with the price at I believe $20. I know my famous tagline is I use real gems, but I couldn't pass these chips up, they are amazing! :-) I think an exception can be made. These will make such great holiday gifts, home decor and office decor.
I am also planning on adding a Zen Garden base option. These are pretty cool, they include the sand, rock and even a tiny rake!
I'm also working hard on coming up with the cash for a few holiday shows in November and December. So far, there is only one scheduled for November. I have my eye on the Rosemount 23rd Annual Holiday Sale on November 17th. Unfortunately if I do that show, I'd be working it alone, and I'm not sure I'm up to that huge task!
I think that's all the news I have for now. Happy Thursday, only one more day until TGIF!
