About Wifemade

Sales 4,685
On Etsy since 2012

"The wife made it."

The Wife loves it when her husband says that about things she's baked or sewed or crafted in some way. Well, he probably doesn't actually say 'the wife', but we won't let minor details like that ruin a good story now, will we!

The Wife loves keeping the old handicrafts alive through her creative process, so you'll often see crochet, hand-embroidery and many other crafts on the Wife-made Facebook page and blog (www.thewifemadeit.blogspot.com).

Here at Wife-made you'll find a range of clothing and home-wares that include a smattering of modern and a generous helping of vintage.

Returns and exchanges
I really want to make sure you are 100%, absa-doodle-ootly, for reals, HAPPY with your purchase, so please convo me if you have any problems with your order, or are not happy in any way.

I do not accept returns or offer refunds, exchanges or replacements on vintage or custom-made items.

Regarding refunds relating to items that are damaged during shipping, please refer to my Shipping Policy.

Due to the nature of digital items, these cannot be refunded once the item has been sent.
Payment is due immediately. We accept Paypal, direct checkout or bank deposit. Please feel free to convo me if you have any questions.

PLEASE NOTE: If you purchase through Paypal, please ensure that your address is up to date on your Paypal account as this is the address where your invoice and purchased item will be sent. Once you have paid through Paypal, I cannot, and will not, send to any other address, as Paypal requires that I send only to the address provided by them. If you realise that your Paypal address is incorrect BEFORE I have shipped your item, please contact me and I will refund your payment to enable you to correct the address and repurchase the item. I will then ship to the new address provided by Paypal.

Please understand that I have done my utmost to provide accurate and fair shipping costs. My shipping costs include everything I have purchased to ensure your purchases arrive to you in the same way they left me, for example, boxes, bubble wrap, foam, or whatever else I need to protect your purchase.

Shipping costs are very difficult to estimate accurately and to ensure that I am not out of pocket after shipping your purchase I have based my domestic shipping cost calculations on Gold Coast to Perth quotes. I am VERY happy to provide a shipping quote that is specific to your situation. PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me to discuss shipping costs which you feel to be excessive. I am very happy to discuss this with my valued customers. I will refund excess postage charges of $2 or more to your PayPal account after the item has been posted.

If you would like to purchase more than one item I am very happy to combine shipping costs. Please convo me with your postal address for a quote.

I take the greatest care when packaging items to be shipped because my lovely Australia Post lady told me that all items need to be able to survive the possibility of having a 20kg box dropped on them. All breakable items will be shipped in a box and wrapped as needed, with the aim and intention of preventing damage during shipping. In saying that, however, as I am not personally delivering your item (even though I'd love to come for a cuppa) Wife-made CANNOT be held responsible for items that are lost or damaged in transit. If you would like to purchase insurance to cover your item from loss or damage that may occur during shipping (I recommend this approach however it is not a requirement), please convo me and I will adjust the shipping cost for the item you wish to purchase.

Orders will be sent within 3 to 5 days of payment being received by Wife-made. If there is a problem, I will convo you to advise and discuss. All orders will be shipped via Australia Post, or courier where necessary (Officeworks, for example).

For custom hand-made items, please allow for production time + shipping time.
