On Etsy since 2012

Patterns of Time - A family enterprise

Thank you for visiting Patterns of Time, we are a small family owned business which started in about 1996.

Finding a lacking online presence for period accurate and costume enthusiast patterns for those who love dressing from various time eras. We began going to Renaissance festivals and started a small online shop. John and Charlsie own and run the business. Suki provides security for the premises. Even our son Rob kicks in for special events and sewing rushes. The ever trusty Erica will likely be filling your order or answering your questions!

We value the small business principals and have built our business on quick turn-around on order times and fair business practices, trying to put ourselves in our customer's shoes in the rare instance an issue arises.

Our goal is not just the immediate sale, but building a long and trusting business relationship with each customer.

Thank you,
John, Charlsie, and our pets: Spooky, Suki and Cru.

Payment

To protect your financial information, only Etsy will be involved with transactions.
The vendor has no access to your financial information.

Shipping

We ship USPS.

If you are not willing to take the risk on these delays (which can be days for domestic, and weeks for international shipments), we suggest to hold off placing an order as we cannot influence this and cannot cancel or refund the order once it has been shipped out.


DOMESTIC SHIPMENTS:
As long as there are updates on the tracking, it is not lost.
As we all know, Covid is the main cause of delays, less people working and different procedures create delays.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS:
(IMPORTANT)
As of September we are no longer accepting orders for Germany as their Eco tax for shipments requires a permit which is creating some delays to set up.
Etsy does not have a way to exclude a country so we apologize if you placed an order and we end up refusing it.

All our orders go out roughly between 1-2 weeks to have enough quantity to have shipping discounts apply to justify the shipping costs charged to you,

International Mail is packaged and labelled at our location, after which we confirm the order with our customers.
The orders are bundled into a batch shipment which goes out by UPS to our carrier which then sorts them by country and gets them to the international airport.
This batch has a single tracking through UPS and is different than your individual tracking number which we provided.
So if you see your tracking not updating right away, it is because of the UPS batch shipment not being received yet by our carrier.
Once our carrier receives the batch shipment, the provided individual tracking for each package becomes active.

The overall time of this process to get the mail at your doorstep is the same, or faster, than using our the previous carrier
The shipping cost is just much, much less.

-We strongly recommend to provide a phone number with the order as Etsy does not provide one when they pass the order to us.

* Please note:

Etsy charges VAT costs if they apply for your country, so those should not be charged to you again once they arrive.

Items for shipment to countries outside of the U.S. which do not use VAT may be subject to taxes, customs duties, tariffs, and fees levied by the destination country ("Import Fees"). The recipient of the shipment is the importer of record in the destination country and is responsible for all Import Fees.

If a shipment returned to our location and has been received here due to no taxes, customs duties, tariffs, fees paid, or refused, there will be no refund of the shipping costs.
