Do you know what you're getting when you answer a "mums for sale" ad?
Last year, I learned that someone was using one of my photos to sell her homecoming mums online. I sent her a nice note and she removed my photo but she continued to use other photos that she “found on Pinterest." Honestly, I was pretty amused by the whole thing. I took the theft of my photo as a sign that I “made it” in the mum world. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? My next thought was, “How disappointed are the customers of this person going to be when they get the mum they purchased from this seller?”
One of my mum lady friends had an identical situation and one of her friends decided to purchase a mum from her photo thief. It was pitiful, yall. It looked nothing like the photo that had been used to sell the homecoming mum.
Here’s the thing.
I am no fly-by-night mum maker that sets up shop out of a plastic tub. Central Texas Spirit Wear mums will never be advertised as being the cheapest mums in the area. I care too much about the kids that wear my mums throughout the day to cheap out. Time and care is given to each mum that I make. I invest time in perfecting my craft throughout the year. I take small business and industry specific courses that make me a better mum designer and shop owner. I shop throughout the year to find top quality materials
and unique elements for my mums. Making mums is more than a seasonal hobby for me, it is my obsession throughout the year.
