The Ripple Effect of Customer Reviews in the Handmade Marketplace

The Ripple Effect of Customer Reviews in the Handmade Marketplace

In the cozy corners of the internet, where creativity flourishes and the warmth of human touch is felt through every product, small businesses like ours at Forged Flare® thrive. We pour our hearts into creating each Mother’s Angels® ornament, ensuring every piece carries a piece of our spirit and the timeless beauty of handcraftsmanship. Imagine the delicate dance of sunlight through the vibrant colors of a Mother’s Angels® ornament - that’s the magic we aim to share.

But here’s the thing about sharing our magic online: it’s a bit like whispering in a bustling market. Unless folks around start to echo your story, it’s hard to get heard. That’s where reviews come in, not just as feedback but as the lifelines that tether our dreams to the vast digital expanse.

    "You're too expensive!"

    Compared to what? If we had a dollar for every time we've heard that comment, we'd be rich and there wouldn't even be Mother’s Angels® or their pricing to voice an opinion about. 😉 But seriously, this is a comment we've heard repeatedly over our years...

    How to display your Mother's Angels ornament.

    Most people associate the word "ornament" with "Christmas tree" — and while Mother's Angels® are not exempt from this assumption — we have taken every opportunity to distance ourselves from being put into this creative box. When we first conceptualized Mother's Angels®, it was personally important...
