Hello and Welcome to apt 3 design!

I'm Tina Pfeiffer - wife, artist, student, writer, traveler, adventurer, native Oregonian, entreprenuer, photographer, decorator, foodie, music lover, Etsy fan, vintage aficionado, pragmatic, reader and blog author.

I've been creating art since I was in grade school. I enjoyed a variety of two and three dimensional art classes in high school and studied Illustration at Pacific NW College of Art in the early 1990s. I'm currently earning my BA at Portland State University majoring in Art Studies (emphasis on Drawing/Painting/Printmaking) and minoring in Art History.

My art is created in a 100% smoke-free environment.

This shop is convo and email friendly so please contact me with any questions you may have prior to, during or after your purchase.

My start-up date shows as August 2010 but I've been active buying and selling on Etsy since 2006. If you'd like to see more customer feedback, please visit my vintage shop: http://forrestinavintage.etsy.com

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
All packages within the USA are insured. If loss or damage occurs during transit please contact me as soon as possible so we can discuss your options for refund.

I want ALL of my customers to be happy and to return to my shop. I promise to do my best to capture clear photos and provide detailed information and measurements for each item in the shop. If you ever receive an item that is drastically off from how it was presented, please contact me first and I will work with you to make things right.
New to Etsy? Here are some helpful tips...

How to buy on Etsy:

How does the shopping cart work?

How to pay for your order:

Full payment is expected at checkout. I use PayPal for your safety and mine. PayPal allows you to choose your method of payment from major credit cards, debit or e-Check.

If your order is not paid in full within 48 hours you will receive ONE Etsy convo message as a friendly reminder to complete the transaction. The message will include instructions on how to pay using the PayPal system.

If you intend to pay outside of the 48 hour window, please send me a message once you place an item in your cart.

Orders that are not paid in full after the reminder message has been sent will be cancelled and the item(s) will be returned to my shop.

Confirmation of order receipt will be sent via the Etsy system to your account. PayPal also sends a confirmation of payment via email to their account holders.

How to pay via Paypal (even if you do not have a PayPal account):

1: SELECT items and place them in your shopping cart
5: Click button that says PAY WITH PAYPAL
6: Choose Credit Card, Debit or eCheck* for your payment
7: Fill in the card info and follow the prompts

*E-check customers please note: if you choose to pay via PayPal's e-check method there will be a waiting period before the funds transfer from your account to mine. PayPal recommends that sellers wait until all funds have been received and processed prior to mailing any order. If you have any question about the lead time on this wait period, please contact me..

I will reserve an item for 72 hours under your name upon request.

I am not offering layaway payments or trades at this time. I do not accept offers on my work. My asking prices are firm unless I choose to advertise a discount, sale or promotion.
Photographs, drawings, art cards (ACEO), and hand pulled prints are packaged in a re-usable plastic envelope and mail flat, sandwiched between cardboard sheets inside of a Tyvek envelope - Tyvek is moisture and tear resistant but breathable and 100% recyclable.

Per USPS a large envelope which is rigid is considered a package. I figure mailing for the furthest zip code from Portland, OR - your final price may be a bit less if you live on the west coast. International mailing is accurate as shown.

Collage pieces are swathed in bubble wrap, then brown mailing paper, and secured with clear packaging tape.

All orders within the USA mail via USPS Priority, insured + delivery confirmation.

All International orders mail via USPS First Class - standard International mailing does not include insurance or a method of tracking. I am happy to upgrade your mailing and send you a quote upon request and prior to purchase.

Your collage or print order will mail within 3-5 business days after payment is received.

Photographs are printed after your place your order and not in my home but through a professional print shop. I mail photographs once per week, typically on Saturday.

If you need faster mailing please let me know and I will quote the upgrade amount.

We ship orders to the address provided with your PAYPAL PAYMENT. Please double check that your PAYPAL address info is correct when submitting your payment and that it matches the name and address in your Etsy account.

If you prefer to use an address other than the one in your PayPal account, please include a message in the "note to seller" section upon checkout and include your preferred mailing address.

If your addresses differ, and you don't alert me at the time of purchase I will send ONE Etsy message to your Etsy user ID account to clarify which address to use.

I will not mail your order until I have a confirmation from you on the correct mailing address. No refunds will be made for orders shipped outside of my 3-5 day mailing policy if a delay is due to no reply from the buyer about an address confirmation.

Please provide your current email address in case I need to contact you or send a mailing refund {see policy above}. I will only contact you via the Etsy convo feature and/or the email provided in your PayPal payment if necessary to confirm your payment, refund, mailing information, details about your order or an order cancellation. {See my privacy policy below}.

I warmly welcome International shoppers! I include the mailing costs for the areas I serve most frequently. If your country/area is not listed please contact me for a quote--I'm friendly, answer promptly and am happy to assist you in any way to ensure a pleasant shopping experience.

All International orders will be mailed via USPS First Class service unless you request otherwise. This method carries no insurance unless you request and pay for an upgrade PRIOR TO PURCHASE.

The USPS mailing prices increased in 2009. If your order weighs over four pounds I must mail it Priority International service. Please be aware--the USPS does not offer insurance for first class International packages. Please read the note above regarding USPS tracking.

International shoppers are responsible for any customs fees, taxes, VAT, and/or duties associated with shipping to their respective countries, should they be assessed. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery, are at the discretion of your country's tax regulations, and I am not responsible for those types of charges. For additional information, please refer to your local customs agency.

All International orders will include a custom form marked as containing "Merchandise" not "Gift".
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have questions please send me a message via the Etsy conversation system. I will communicate info regarding your order using the convo feature to the user name in your Etsy account first. If no reply is received I will attempt to contact you via the email address provided with your PayPal payment.

Upon receipt of your order please take a moment to log in to your Etsy account and leave me feedback so I will know it arrived safe and sound. I leave feedback for all buyers that purchase from my Etsy shops and value your opinion of my service and the goods that your purchase.

Using PayPal keeps all of your financial info safe and private--even from me. Any and all personal info {name, address, phone, email} are kept 100% private and will never be sold or shared.
