CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

Just to update everyone on my Davet Designs labels experience on Etsy...  She is HORRIBLE.

 

I put in an order and told her what I wanted in the comments section and she got back to me right away.  I said I wanted clear labels instead of white if possible, so she said she would have to cancel that order and give me a new quote for clear.  And then she totally dropped off the face of the earth.  I sent her 2 reminders and she never got back to me.  I would even wait 5 days between the reminders. So now I have to watch my credit card to make sure the charges were credited.

 

I've outsourced my waterproof labels to a sign shop in Guelph.  At least it is local and I can get them in a week.

Ohh thank you so much Mellie818!!  I'd love to know since I'm not too far from Chinatown I can head down there.  We're also heading to Pickering Flea Market this weekened to pick up some OOT bag shirts and maybe the actual bags from Creative Bag.
Which vendor are you getting the shirts made at the flea market? I live in Pickering so it would be convenient vs. Getting them on Etsy. I am looking to get them made for my bridesmaids.

If all else fails, I have paper lanterns for rent down here in Mexico. Here's my inventory and prices:

 

Paper lanterns of various sizes and colours with lights for inside - tiffany blue, ivory, white


$2 ea. - 8" - (6 ivory, 3 tiffany blue)
$2.50 ea.- 10" & 12" (15 of each size in white)
$3 ea. - 16" (15 white, 3 ivory, 4 tiffany blue)
$4 ea. - 24" (4 ivory, 5 tiffany blue)
$1 ea. - LED light/battery powered lightbulb for hanging inside paper lantern

 

Most people have been renting the white ones, as I have 45 of those total. Let me know if you'd like some more info! :)

Thank you Mrs.HK... the clock is counting down for us so I better get on this stuff quick.  I'll definitely contact you if I need to rent stuff.  Do you have a website or a full list of what you offer in the Playa area?

Oh boy... that's sucky.  Thanks for the tip and I hope your new labels blow the old labels out of the water.

Hi Mellie818 - I'll take a pic of the stand when we get there on Saturday.  There's a whole bunch so we'll have to do some shopping around.

Haha, maybe one day! I wish there was someone like me when I was planning over the last couple of years for our wedding this past May. The vendor prices here are so insane, I just ended up making and buying a lot of stuff. It was tons of work but we saved a lot of money. I tried to price everything fairly for all the future Mayan Riviera brides! :)

Hey girls, Michael's has their 50% off coupon back out this weekend.  It is 50% off 1 regular priced item.  There is also a 40% off a regular priced item but why would you get that when you can get the 50% off?  Happy Shopping!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
