What's New at Sugar Camp Cottage

                                                                                         I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about my business.  My business is me.  I choose everything I sell.  I take all the photographs, write all the descriptions, answer all the questions, and pack all the boxes.  Always,  I want to improve and grow.  I want this little business to provide a living for me.  I've already found the most important thing is to keep the customers I have.  I know I can't compete on price alone.  There is always someone smarter and  bigger who can charge a dollar less and there is always someone dumber who will charge a dollar less until they realize one day their business is a hobby.
 So I strive for customer service.  I will always answer your emails promptly.  If I don't know the answer to your question I will find someone who does.  If I don't sell what you need, I won't try to sell you what I have.   I'll find someone who does sell what you need and point you in their direction. I know I can't make everyone happy,  everyone satisfied.  But I'll try.                               I throw myself wholeheartedly in this business.  I try to choose unique things you may not find anywhere else.  I won't sell anything that I don't consider to be excellent quality.  I've taken some things from vendors and donated them straight to Goodwill.  I can't allow my reputation to be cheapened.  I will go out of my way to help, whether it's what glue to use with German glass glitter or how to get milk paint to crackle and age, I'll take the time to explain it.
I want to earn and keep your business.
