Re: STICKY PLEASE! WAHMs who offer LayAway

As for getting the 15% back for cancellations, I as a customer would have no objections to putting down 10 or 15% of my total up front. You have to do that in any b&m store that offers layaway. With custom orders on layaway you just have to trust that the mama is honest. I am not sure about that one. Maybe layaway should be in stock items only.

As far as the amber jewelry is concerned I know it is basically all custom but there is a market for them so I don't feel it would be an issue there!
