Welcome to ChunInda, my little experiment in entrepreneurship. Or in other words, my attempt to earn some subway and bus, grocery and museum entrance ticket money (and if things go well, presents for folks back home!
I’m travelling from India to the United States in March for three weeks, and thought I would offer a sample selection of some of the pretties I routinely admire in the marketplaces around me. I’m focussing on jewellery and scarves since they are fairly light-weight, and I am limiting myself to what I can bring with me as part of my normal baggage allowance.
Right now I am only offering one of each item displayed, and whether I add stock to sell depends on how well everything listed sells before the 24th of March, 2011. So if there’s something you’d like to see more of, make sure you let me know beforehand, with a commitment to buy it. You can use the categories in the right-side menu to naviage; there are gold-plated earrings, metal alloy earrings, earring and pendant sets, bracelets, scarves, and a bag!
How to Reserve and Buy Something
If you’d like to buy something, leave a comment with a valid email address on that item’s page, saying “I’d like to reserve this.” You’ll then have 24 hours from the time your comment was posted to pay me via PayPal (email@example.com). If you are unable to make the payment within the specified time, the item will go back to being listed as for sale, or will pass on to the next person on the waiting list.
If you want something that’s marked ‘Reserved’ but not marked ‘Sold’, go ahead and comment saying you’d like it, with a valid email address. If the reservation falls through, I will contact you to let you know you have 24 hours starting from the time I email you to buy the item.
If something is marked sold, but you really want it, leave me a comment, and I will talk to you about trying to get something similar. I can’t guarentee an exact match, but I can try to meet your specifications.
Concerning Mailing Costs
Prices mentioned here do not include postage costs. This is because I’d prefer to check in with you to find out how you would prefer your items mailed on an individual basis. (For instance, are you buying more than one item, would you like them insured, etc.) No matter how quickly you buy something, the earliest I will be able to ship it is on the 9th of March, in order to get you North American continent folks more local postage rates. In most cases, the additional amount you’d need to pay me for postage shouldn’t exceed $5 (USD).
People who do not live in North America – if you would still like to buy something, you are welcome to, but do remember that you will be paying international postage costs from India to where ever you are. Email me to let me know where you would like it delivered to, and I can tell you how much it will cost.
If you have any questions, you can either leave a comment to this post, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy looking through here!
