One of my most favorite pieces of social media, search and the web is how it can dramatically level the playing field among businesses. Now average consumers can much more easily find, interact with and shop from businesses both large AND small, opening the commerce door for the “mom & pop” shops out there.
Allyson from Daisy & Elm is one such small business. She makes incredibly fashionable, incredibly affordable jewelry pieces, and has some of the most amazing customer service and attention to detail I’ve ever seen. The two pieces below I ordered for myself, and she asked me every question she could (and that never crossed my mind) about the length, bead type, number of beads, how I wanted my 3 chain necklace to come together as one – EVERYTHING.
This is the Sweet Leaf necklace.
This is the Vintage Hot Mess.
A custom piece from Daisy and Elm is also one of the prizes in the 2012 I Was a Senior Hottie: Then & Now linkup!
This write-up is completely of my own doing because I just love everything about Allyson’s spirit, creativity and commitment to customer service.
