Description

❁❁❁BEFORE ORDERING, PLEASE REVIEW PRICING AS STATED BELOW: THE $10 IS DEFAULT, AS IT IS THE MOST INEXPENSIVE ITEM INVOLVING THE ROSES❁❁❁

This is simply the coolest thing ever... In fact, it is so cool and I'm so excited about it, that I'm posting it even before I'm done with the custom order. I cannot claim to have conceived this unbelievably cool idea, but I'm glad I get to make it!

Here's some tid-bits about the product:
The blossom is made from vintage comic books that have been scrupulously coated with Modge Podge to prevent rippage or general damage. It also makes them waterproof.

They come in three principle sizes:

❁Small (about 2 inches in diameter, can be made smaller)about the right size to be used on a pair of Playne Jaynes regular sized bobby pins

❁Medium (about 3 inches in diameter)- this is the default one, used in the BOBBY PINS of JUSTICE.

❁Large (about four inches or bigger- please specify desired diameter) - this is appropriate for large single stemmed roses (see pics) or BOBBY PIN of JUSTICE if your after an oversized Monstrosity (how delightful! Let's do it! you'd have people reading the comics off of your head because the strips of paper would be so wide! hahahaha)

So, within these categories, obviously a lot can be done. Here's some ideas:

❁Of coooooourse BOBBY PINS yay! whether it be a pair of Playne Jaynes or a single BOBBY PIN of JUSTICE

❁For the custom project, I am making a bridal bouquet and 5 boutonnieres. I am in awe of the person who would use these in their wedding. Awed reverence... If you have any sense of what is cool, you'd have your wedding with comic book flowers, too.

❁General pretty bouquets and other home decor (how cool would a garland of these be??!!) Obviously, I'd have to quote you on anything customized. I intend to learn how to make other sorts of flowers and bouquet "filler" type floral items with comic book elements, as well.

❁Just a single stemmed beautiful rose. Your sweet-heart will melt in your arms at the romantic gesture :D I'll make comic book ribbon or tie a classic red satin ribbon around it, just to be special.

❁wedding favors/bridal party favors

❁scrap book or craft embellishing

The sky is the limit, as I so often say. You send a custom request thingee, and I'll write you back with a proposal promptly.

PRICING:
❁basic bobby pins/barrettes/alligator clips as well as corsages or boutonnieres etc:
$12

❁a single stemmed rose (four inches or bigger in diameter)
$10

❁bouquets:
just the roses of various sizes (unless otherwise specified), a few ribbons (either comic book ribbons or real ribbons - satin, velvet, organza, lace etc) a sprig or two of floral embellishment (please inquire or suggest) and a vintage vase- you specify the style, and I send photos fanatically for your approval on every item and development:
half dozen: $60 + $15 for shipping
one dozen: $120 + 15 for shipping

❁the whole nine yards:
this would include a cool vase, ribbons, rocks, sand, twigs, any number of floral embellishments, comic book roses of various sizes and lengths.... essentially the whole nine yards. I'll have to quote you on that. Please click on the custom request button on the main page of my shop and knock yourself out.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Single orders - Vintage or Made-to-order: Balance is due upon purchase. If you would like your order shipped through a private company (UPS, FedEx, DHL), I will invoice you separately, deducting the shipping amount already paid

Multiple items order (either of the same listing or different):
If you are ordering multiple items of the same listing (as in, you'd like 12 identical boutonnieres) or you'd like additional embellishments a part from those listed, please purchase the original listing. This serves as a deposit. Once I've completed & shipped your order, I will invoice you the remaining balance. This is due upon delivery.
If you've ordered from a variety of listings, this should be automatically calculated at the Flat shipping rate ($5, unless otherwise indicated). If there is a problem, I can always go in and manually reimburse/bill you. Thanks!

Cancellation -
Generally speaking, if you cancel before I've shipped, I will refund you the entire balance. There are a few exceptions to the rule, though.
If I have already purchased goods specific to your order, I will not reimburse. The same principle applies to services already executed if I am in any way under obligation toward the sub-contacter.

Returns & exchanges

As stated, I accept returns but keep the down-payment if it's simply a question of taste and not a faulty product. Obviously it would be wise to thoroughly read the description and ask any pertinent questions BEFORE buying, but we all get the wrong end of the stick sometimes.

Obviously, if it's a faulty product, I'll replace it immediately with a comparable item, the same item or monies back, at my expense.

Shipping policies

~PAYMENT
Single orders: Paid for up front, please.
Multiple orders: If you are ordering multiple items of the same listing (as in, you'd like 12 identical boutonnieres) or you'd like additional embellishments a part from those listed, please purchase the original listing. This serves as a deposit. Once I've completed & shipped your order, I will invoice you the remaining balance. This is due upon delivery.

~SHIPPING
I use the French Postal system, La Poste for all my orders. This is normal priority shipping. If you'd like to track your order, signature required, insurance etc, please specify and I will quote you the price at cost. In addition, I would be happy to send you your flowers through a private company (such as UPS, FedEx or DHL), but please note that this is significantly more expensive. Again, I charge at cost for these additional services - no inflated prices. Shipping's already expensive enough!
