Announcement    New products being added regularly, so check back or make us a favourite. Now shipping internationally!

Handmade, whimsical, vintage, retro, quirky, found items, grunge, ephemera - that pretty much sums up my shop.

I have always had a love of craft. I have been into them all, from sewing, knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, stamping, junk journaling and many more...

I also have a fetish for watch parts, keys, little bottles, little houses, little anything really! You may see these items turning up in my work. Retro, grunge, steampunk are also a love. I love to up-cycle or re-purpose items.

Where possible I support the other sellers on Etsy by buying my supplies from them.

Buy with confidence from a smoke-free pet-free home.

I hope you enjoy looking at my shop.

About stringandscissors

Sales 1,109
On Etsy since 2013

Life Long Crafter

I have crafted since my teens. I have pretty much done it all. I started my shop because I have a love of handmade. I have been a buyer on Etsy for many years. I still support other Etsy sellers. I sell at local markets around Brisbane. In 2014 I decided it was time to open a shop and share my creations with the outside world.

I live in Brisbane, Australia. All my products are handmade or vintage. I up cycle many vintage items. My home is smoke-free and pet-free. I work in my wonderful light & airy large craft room.

I owned my own bricks and mortar retail business (2005-2009) selling scrapbooking and stamping products. I loved doing that but closed it down to go back to work full-time. I am now retired, giving me more time to concentrate on my craft.

    I am a life long crafter. I have tried it all. My process for making items is very organic. My table is always messy *sighs*. I may start out making one thing and end up with something entirely different and unexpected. I hope you like my shop.

Delivery
I ship orders after I get clearance from Etsy payments. Note that the time frames listed on Etsy do not line up with local AU time. 90% of what I ship are letters, for which I do not have to visit a post office so they are shipped same day or next day. Parcels are sent from a post office in order to allow for tracking. I only do this twice a week.

We post in good faith with Australia Post. Due to the cost, we do not offer insurance. Parcels do occasionally go missing or are damaged. Please contact me if there are any delivery problems. Australia Post will refund up to a certain amount for any damage they cause. Please keep all packaging if you item is damaged. The buyer needs to take the item to a post office and fill out a claim form to receive monies back. Australia Post offer no recourse for missing letters.

SHIPPING WITHIN AUSTRALIA
Parcels are tracked within Australia. Tracking is available on FREEPOST items at an extra cost. Please select a shipping upgrade on checkout to have your parcel tracked.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Information on delivery times is on the Australia Post website www.austpost.com.au. If you would like your item posted as a parcel please select a shipping upgrade or it will be posted untracked. I cannot be held accountable for parcels without tracking.

If I inadvertently miscount quantities (e.g. 9 cards when there should have been 10) please let me know & I will provide you with a gift voucher for the missing item. Unfortunately I cannot post one missing item.
