SORRY I HAD TO DO THIS…….

I didn’t want to cancel all my Halloween themed items but I did because Halloween is two weeks away and all my items are still in Advanced order. Saved myself $$$. Didn’t want to decorate after the holiday. I noticed many cancelled orders of Valerie’s metal pumpkins.

Re: SORRY I HAD TO DO THIS…….

I understand and agree.  I have been thinking the same about three items I have on order for Halloween.  I decorated my home weeks ago and will be taking down the decorations soon.  I still haven't received my advanced orders and by the time I do they will be packed away without ever being displayed.  You made the right decision and I need to do the same.

No need to apologize, it's perfectly understandable.  Halloween decor, unlike Christmas decor, is usually taken down right after the holiday.  So, If you don't have it well before the holiday, it's useless.

I would have done the same.

 

 

"I noticed many cancelled orders of Valerie’s metal pumpkins."

 

 

How do you see how many cancelled orders there are?

 

I can only see my own order history, not others....

Remember when the metal pumpkins were introduced? They sold out in minutes. Sold out. And they were the only order of the season. Weeks later they were all available. I called CS and they said people cancel.

Re: SORRY I HAD TO DO THIS…….

I don't blame you.

 

A couple weeks ago I saw a temptation halloween item presented that was advance order set to ship Oct 25.  That seemed very strange because the item would arrive almost on Halloween (if not later).
