Setting up an Affiliate Program

February 18, 2017 under News

Hey friends and other bloggers,

I am setting up an affiliate program to drive more traffic to this site! This way we can both benefit from the sales.

If you have a website where you would like to link to my store, I could give you a special URL that will track the sales resulting from your leads and you will get a commission.

This offer is limited to Canada, USA, Australia, and Europe. All payments are made with PayPal.

I am back on Facebook, for the 3rd time!

February 2, 2017 under News

I am sure that many of you are wondering when I’ll be finally back on Facebook. A few minute ago I finally gathered up the courage, looked up one of my several e-mail addresses that hasn’t been blocked from Facebook yet, and started a new profile called Jessica Calze like the previous one.

Please don’t ask me why I got deleted in the first place. I don’t know, they never said anything, just removed my profile. Thank you to Gerard for being a back up admin person on my Fantasy Stockings Fan Page, if it wouldn’t be for him, that page would be gone too.

Do you want to add me on Facebook? Go ahead – Jessica Calze is my username. I approve all friend requests and this is probably one of the reasons why I get booted out. The way I see it is that every person is a potential fan /customer and if I am there to promote my blog, I don’t mind making those connections.

Looking for some advice on Fantasy Stockings – Blog or Shop?

January 28, 2017 under News

Hello friends and followers,

Recently I’ve been thinking to change my design to look more like a tights shop rather than a blog. Then I thought about it… I’ll look like all the rest and I may lose my uniqueness.

How do you feel that this site being structured primarily as a blog rather than a shop?

I appreciate your thoughts, thanks!

I returned from vacation!

January 20, 2017 under News

Hello friends and thank you very much for your patience. I just got back from my trip to Toronto and I am already jumping to assemble all the orders waiting for me while I was away.

I got to see some of my friends, but not everybody sadly, as it usually happens because of the brevity of my trip. I did however manage to meet up with one of my fans and we went out for a very nice sushi brunch.

My December was hectic and I actually worked through the whole day on Christmas because naturally the next day would be Boxing Day and I wanted to upload as much product as I possibly could to eBay.

For whatever reason I notice that Boxing Day is no longer a big deal in Canada like it used to be 10 years ago. American Black Friday is taking over in terms of popularity.

I told myself that I’ll take time off in January when the sales are slower, but of course with this trip I still feel like I didn’t get to rest. It’s not exactly a vacation in Toronto because I am staying with my parents.

If you have a regular job, then December is the time to relax. But when you are in sales like me, it’s quite the opposite and quite a stressor. Any other month is good for vacation, just not this one.

On my way back half of the airplane was coming from a resort in Jamaica. This of course made me want to jump back on a plane and head to the tropics. If I do, I’ll let you know.

My Facebook account gets deleted. AGAIN.

November 23, 2016 under News

Dear friends and followers, once again, for the 2nd time around, my Facebook account “Jessica Calze” gets deleted. I don’t know why! I checked my inbox to see if I got some kind of a message about this deletion, but there is nothing there.

Luckily my fan page, Fantasy Stockings, is still up because I am not the only admin person. This is something that I’d like to really emphasize to those of you who have a fan page – get another admin person, even if inactive and symbolic, because if your account is deleted, your page will disappear along with.

I’m going to create a new account again, but I’ll try to be more careful so I don’t get deleted again. I am not sure what actions lead to this deletion, but I’ll do my research.

Ripped pantyhose in Obsessed with the Dress Show

November 14, 2016 under News

I started watching a show “Obsessed with the Dress” and spotted a pantyhose moment. Well, started and finished, it’s not interesting for me at all. Very shallow.

ripped-pantyhose-obsessed-with-the-dress-show

 

I found it interesting that they showed one of the sales girls wearing ripped pantyhose in the pageant dress store. She got criticized by the other sales woman and a sales gay guy for wearing it ripped because they say that if it rips, it should be thrown away.

I was in a sense surprised to hear that they don’t like it because it’s ripped, not because it’s simply there. The way the comment sounded made it look like as if wearing undamaged pantyhose is a normal thing to do. That’s refreshingly rare in the modern fashion industry.

Kristina again: romance with a swindler exposed on TV

November 14, 2016 under News

kristina-in-sheer-black-pantyhose

 

 

I had a request to write more about the same TV host as in the previous post. She goes undercover to catch criminals and scammers in action. She finds the prospects through social media, sometimes they find her, and sometimes she actually gets leads from former victims.

In this episode she is going on a date with a doctor from England who is staying in a hotel. She knows this is a scam because of several reasons – his photo is actually from an eye wear commercial and there is a spelling mistake in his name.  This doctor tells her that he is bringing her a big expensive present, but he is coming straight from the airport and will not have any local currency, so she should bring some money and he’ll exchange it for dollars at a really good rate. Film crew and body guards are hiding nearby, waiting for her signal.

Kristina chooses her outfit carefully. She is playing the role of a shoe sales clerk with a modest income to portray a typical woman who would be blown away by a chance to date a rich doctor. Simple shorts, blouse, high heels, sheer backseam pantyhose, and a jacket over it so she looks dressed up, but not luxurious. The main accessory that she is carrying is a cake, a “present” for the man, with a hidden camera inside of it.

She knocks on the door and a guy in underwear opens, motions her to come in. Kristina noticed a pack of money on the table and she put the cake with the hidden camera near it. The guy locks the door and right away pushes Kristina on the bed and calls her a slut. He accuses her prostitution and trying to steal his money and demands her to pay him so he’ll let her go.

Obviously, he’s not a foreigner, but claims to be some cop who is going to turn her in and flashes some fake identification. Kristina claims that all this time she had an active phone call on her cell and her friend heard the whole thing and already called police. This scammer dresses in a panic, takes away Kristina’s phone and snatches a wallet out of her purse, runs out of the room and gets greeted by the film crew. He claims this is his own wallet, but when Kristina opens it, it’s in a fact a makeup pouch full of cosmetics. The money that she brought with her was in her coat.

This is from a foreign TV shown called “Scammers on the Web”. If you want more of this, let me know, as you see, this is not my typical blogging topic. I like Kristina because she wears pantyhose for a lot of the episodes.

Unexpected Problem on eBay

September 6, 2016 under News

I am still shaken up and confused. Today I got an e-mail from eBay telling me that my selling has been restricted due to trade mark violation. I am so shocked, everything I sell is real and legally obtained. I hold 100% positive feedback.

fantasy stockings on ebay banner 100 positive feedback

I called them and provided a whole bunch of financial documents to prove that I do in fact get this product from a reputable source. Custom clearance, paypal records, invoices, you name it, I have it.

Turns out that what got their attention are words in the titles such as “mock” and “Imitation”. I explained to the woman on the phone that these words refer to the pattern, like let’s say “mock stocking tights” or “hold up imitation” design. It has nothing to do with the authenticity of the brand.

Both parties agreed that I did nothing wrong and that it is simply a misunderstanding. However, they told me that this is an educational experience for me and I am still punished for a week. I’m kind of struggling to wrap my mind around it, as less sales for me means less money in eBay’s pocket too.

I guess I am going to spend a week “educating myself” as eBay put it, without being able to list any new items until Sept 13th.

In case you want to see my eBay, here it is. You can still buy stuff, it’s just that I can’t list anything new for a week, that’s all. http://www.ebay.ca/usr/fantasystockings
