Question for Etsy people

So when you're selling stuff on Etsy, does it infuriate you when you get a convo saying "oh I love this, could you do it in this fabric/add a pocket/shorten the strap/add some links to the chain?" or otherwise request customization? Or do you just smile and tack on five bucks?

This may also lead to pictures of something I may or may not be purchasing myself for a birthday present. I'm 27 today! And tonight we are going to have a nice dinner out here and I am excited. We go out to cheap ethnic food all the time but very rarely do we have a nice dress-up, sit-down, white-tablecloth evening (I can't remember the last time we did) and I am really looking forward to it!

I always figure if it's something that I can do and they are willing to pay in advance for a special order- why not. My dolls are different- some people send me their hair and stuff to add- so it's not the same as a purse, but I figure if I can do it and I have the time- why not?

Happy birthday!

It's not annoying, unless you're unrealistic about what is possible and what it will cost. Small, routine customizations that you're willing to pay for are fine.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, and I went back and the seller actually states early on that she is happy to do custom orders so I don't feel bad.
