So we are doing what we can to pay for the therapies on our own. I am using all of the profits from everything I sell in my etsy shop to pay for her therapy. We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your purchase!

Custom Orders

Banana Showcase welcomes custom orders! If you would like a purse in the shop made in a different color, contact me and we can work together to make the perfect purse for you. To see other other examples of my work, check out my sold items and see what else I can make for you.

All custom orders will require a 50% non-refundable deposit. I cannot accept returns on custom orders.

Shipping
---------------------
I make several trips to the post office each week and your purchase will be mailed by the Saturday of the week you make your purchase. I try my very hardest to ship items in recycled materials. So please don't be surprised if you find your items arriving in reused, but perfectly clean boxes. I will take extra care to make sure your purchase arrives safely. This helps keep my prices down as well as helps save the planet.

International shipping -- I have recently revamped my international shipping prices. If you do not see your country listed, please let me know and I will add shipping charges for your country.
--------------------
Returns
--------------------
No returns will be accepted on custom orders.

I will accept returns if I am contacted within 5 days of receiving. Returns are only accepted if items show no signs of use or damage. You will be refunded in the way that you paid or with in-store credit minus shipping. You are responsible for your own return shipping fees. Please contact me via etsy conversations or at BananaShowcase [!at] gmail.com for details if necessary.
