    Just a question, is this something that has to be made or its already done?

    I’d wait 3-5 business days for it to ship, but a week is still reasonable if the seller is swamped.

    I think a week is fine if it’s nothing custom. If it’s custom maybe 2 weeks.

    I would imagine it would say something in the listing about how much time it takes to make it but that might not always be the case.

    Yeah, I’m thinking your expectations are a tad high. Especially if she has to make it (which it sounds like she does). I would say cool your jets a bit and I’m sure she’ll respond soon. When did you email her? If it were yesterday or today, give her at least 24-48 hours to respond to your email.

    Every time I’ve ordered from etsy I get a message from the seller right away (within a few business days) letting me know the status, when it will ship, etc.

    If you haven’t received any type of contact by Friday (one week after order) I’d contact the seller to see what’s up.

    This is from the shipping section of her shop policies:

    “Orders are shipped within 10-14 days of cleared payment via USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation in the US, or UPS Ground or FedEx Ground for large items.

    Custom and large orders are normally shipped within 2 – 3 weeks of cleared payment. If I have to special order supplies, production time may increase.”

    This listing explicitly says made to order, meaning she won’t start making yours until you place the order. You need to be patient, or more careful reading listings for items you purchase.

    @bells: Bummer from what MissBoPeep just found. I would say now that if you haven’t heard from her after the 10-14 business days (which more than likely started yesterday since you ordered on Friday night), that’s when you should contact her to find out what’s up. Sorry you’ll have to wait so long!
