New Resweater shipping costs

As many of you know, for years now I have kept a low maximum shipping rate of $6 for Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan, and $10 for all other states. The cost of the sweaters, shipping costs, and pretty much all other costs involved for me, have gone up over the years, and I regretfully have to increase my shipping rates. Starting this Thursday, September 20th, 2012, the new maximum rates will be $8 for Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan, and $12 for all other states. Additionally, any orders of over 25 sweaters will be an additional $10 (so an order of anything over 25 sweaters would be $18 to Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, or Michigan, and $22 to all other states). I have really struggled with this decision, but I have been losing a lot of money lately, due to the rising costs of... well everything, and this will allow me to not raise the prices of the sweaters themselves.

Thank you for your understanding.

1000 likes sale!

I have 1000 "likes on my Facebook page! Time for a sale! All individual sweaters in my shop are 50 cents off each, and $5 off of any mystery lots in my shop. This sale will run from now until midnight (CST) Wednesday, September 12, 2012. This discount will not automatically apply at checkout, so you have 2 choices. You can pay for them, and I will refund you the difference, or you can email me with your sweater choices and I can remove them from my shop and send an invoice for the correct amount. With the second option, you run the risk of someone being able to purchase the sweaters before I am able to remove them.
