Description

Stick hair barrette - ART PIECE.

My art pieces are one of a kind. I will never make two the same, so you can be sure of owning a very unique and original piece.

BARRETTE:
Made from felt treated with acrylic medium, giving a leathery effect.
A layer of metallic fabric can be seen through the eyelets.
Made entirely by hand.
Lined with quality 30% wool felt.
Edged with satin ribbon.
The inserts for these barrettes are thin plastic and not card, so the piece won't crease inside and deteriorate with use.


STICK:
The stick is also handmade by myself.
Hardwood, hand-sanded, stained, and sealed with wood balsam - which is is a beeswax based wood treatment.
Buffed to a lovely satin sheen.

Size of the item is shown in the images above.


Made exclusively by myself at Raccoon HQ.

POSTAGE/SHIPPING:
Please read my shipping & policies by clicking the appropriate tab above for more about my shipping rates before making a purchase.

I DO NOT SHIP TO P.O. BOX NUMBER ADDRESSES. This is non-negotiable.

As I live in a rural area I can't always get to the Post Office the day after someone has made a purchase. Please allow 3-5 days for me to post the item. Very often I can only get to the post office on Mondays or Tuesdays, so I usually ship on those days.

I believe in good communication with my customers, so I will keep you updated through Etsy messages.

Shipping policies

I ship from the UK.

Obviously there is no postal charge for PDF downloads. BUT! Under Paypal and Etsy rules DIGITAL DOWNLOADS CANNOT BE RETURNED, so there is no refund available once the product has been downloaded.

My postage rates include a fee of £2.50 for packaging, handling, and fuel to get me to the local post office.

SELLER DOES NOT SHIP TO P.O. BOX NUMBER ADDRESSES. This is non-negotiable. My reasons are:
1) Every time I've been asked to send to a PO box number, the parcel has gone astray.
2) In the USA, certain couriers do not deliver to PO box number. As a UK resident - I have no control over whichever courier is used, USPS, UPS, or Fedex.
3) I ship all my items by Royal Mail International 'Tracked and Signed for' shipping. If sending to a PO box number, there is nobody available to sign for a parcel.

The buyer must PLEASE accept that it can take up to six weeks for a parcel to arrive if I'm shipping overseas. If your item has not arrived after this time, I will issue a full refund to your PayPal account.

PLEASE ALLOW 3 TO 5 DAYS FOR YOUR ITEM TO BE SHIPPED.
I live in a rural area and I have to ask a kind friend to drive me to the nearest post Office. I can't always get to the Post office the day after you have made a purchase. Please allow 5 working days... but very often it will be sooner than that.

SELLERS CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR DELAYS IN THE POSTAL SYSTEM OR FOR CUSTOMS CHARGES.

Seller is not responsible for non-English speaking buyers failing to understand the sales page content, or the content of the patterns themselves.

~~~~~~~

EU VAT:

Etsy has to comply with new EU VAT laws, so EU customers will see the prices listed with VAT charged on top of my actual prices. I do not receive any of this increase, Etsy collects it, and it all goes to the tax office.

~~~~~~~~

SELLER WILL ONLY SEND ITEMS BY "SIGNED FOR", OR TRACKED DELIVERY. I sincerely regret the fact the UK Post Office charges so much for "Signed For" delivery. However I reserve the right to protect myself with shipping. I have never lost a single item with 'Signed For' - which is good for the buyer too.

I will no longer send anything overseas by regular airmail, even with assurances from my buyer that they will accept responsibility. Under Etsy rules, I still have to make a full refund if a parcel is lost, hence tracked shipping only. This is non-negotiable.

~~~~~~~~

Why do I not offer commissions, or clothing made to order?

My customers mean the world to me. Not only are most of them awesome, but they literally put clothes on my back and food on my table, HOWEVER - here are my reasons.

1) My health. I'm able to run this micro-business only by carefully managing my anxiety-related health problems. Due to this, I'm unable to tolerate the extra pressure involved in taking on a commission. Many apologies, but that's the way it has to be.

2) I have to devote most of my time to publishing the sewing patterns. This tiny business is is my only source of income and I need to eat. I do offer ready-made outfits in my Etsy store, but these are incidental to the patterns themselves. I have to make a garment in order to produce pictures in my instructions, and they're all so meticulously made, that I like to be able to offer customers the chance to buy them.

3) Commissions are stressful, however kind and patient the customer is.

4) Commissions often cost more than I can expect to get for the finished item. Invariably I won't already have the fabric or embellishments the customer has asked for. (I have a tiny sewing room which is already overflowing with supplies.) It's often hard to find certain materials in small quantities, so an artisan often has to buy a metre of fabric for one small doll's dress, another for a hat, ditto tights, etc.

5) Backlogs. Once commissions start to be undertaken, the list grows ever longer until customers have to wait for long months before their project can be undertaken. It can suck all the creativity and spontaneity out of the artists work. Also, as with waiting for certain artists dolls, sometimes commission backlogs can reach ridiculous proportions, such as having to wait up to 18 months. Should I fall ill five months down the line... that is lot of very disappointed people. If cash deposits have been paid, I'd have to refund them all... and that would bankrupt my very tiny business account.

For example it’s okay to write “Handmade by myself, using a Raccoon’s Rags pattern” or even “adapted from a Raccoon’s Rags pattern” But not “My own design”.

I always credit other artisans/designers when I use their patterns or adapt them. They did all the hard work and deserve the recognition.

In the same way that you purchase a music mp3 file, or an e-book, your purchase is one copy of this digital product by Raccoon's Rags - for your personal use only.

Please do not share, re-sell, or give to someone else in any way. Please use my patterns with respect to my copyright.

Many thanks.
