Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Liu LingLing? Is it a person or a company?
Some of your prices seem a little high...
In short - both. Liu LingLing is me, the person who created this website and who is writing this answer. I've decided to bite the bullet and try to sell some of my handmade items - so far purses and rose brooches. I am a sole trader, no employees or business partners, just me, myself and I.
Why should I buy your products?
Don't do anything you're unsure of! I like to think that my products are well-made, bright and original. As the purses are handmade and I use good quality materials, you can be sure that love, care and time has gone into making each one.
With the purses and the rose brooches, no two will ever be identical, meaning you'll own a unique product. They make excellent gifts and can be given to mulitiple friends and family members without them ever having the exact same item.
I have tried to be as fair as possible with the prices for each product. The pricing not only includes the cost of materials and labour, but also taxes and postage and packaging within the UK.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, I do, please email me the country you live in and which item you're interested in and I can give you a quote (in British Pounds) that includes international delivery fee costs. Payments taken via Paypal.
Did you take the photos used as backgrounds?
Yes, all photos on this website were taken by me.
Is this your full-time job?
I have more questions...
No, I work part-time as a private English tutor, with British students up to the age of 16 and adults who have English as an additional language. I like being my own boss and so I'd be quite happy to continue tutoring and selling products.
How long does it take to make your products?
Great! I'd love to hear from you. Treat this as you would a physical shop or market stall, I am the sales assistant, manager, buyer and artisan all-in-one so any questions are welcome; I would be glad to help. Email email@example.com or use the form in the 'contact' section above.
For the purses, anything from 10 - 20 hours usually over several days. For the rose brooches, around 1.5-2 hours per brooch. I often work with several projects on the go. There is further info on the time it takes to make individual items on the product pages.
Returns & Refunds
If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, you have 30 days from the order date to send the item(s) back to me andrequest a refund, which will be issued provided no damage has been done to the product. Sending the items back to me will be at your own cost.
