    Thanks for writing about my pies. Here is a coupon code to be used by your readers that is good starting July 4th and going for two weeks. https://www.etsy.com/shop/ThriftyVintageShoppe?coupon=25OFFPIE.

    Here is an explanation on the price: The higher price on Etsy is due to a few reasons: There is extra work in baking a pie and getting it ready to mail. You need icepacks to keep it cold in transport and I never came across free ones.
    The shipping is actual charge. Till you put icepacks in , it takes more room and puts in more weight. You are paying for the convenience of it coming to your door. I do not know where you where located but I offer free pick up. .
    These pies are made completely from scratch. The pie filling gets made fresh for each batch of pies. There is no bought canned pie filling. The crust also gets made from scratch. Some bakeries buy the pie crusts in. So I feel this pie is superior in taste to most bakery pies.
    There is also many cookies and bars that are made. If you want a certain item, say , peanut butter cookie, chocolate whoopie pies, etc just ask and I will see if we an come to an agreement. The shipping in items like that will be much lower do to less packaging needed.
    Thank You and have a wonderful day.

      Hi, Susan, thanks for posting, I somehow missed your comment here…thanks for explanation of the cost…the cost is high…that said, though, I don’t think the cost is unreasonable, as you stated there is a lot that goes into mailing a pie. I’ll pass along the coupon to my readers in another post soon!
