*BACKGROUND*

I'm a costume designer and illustrator who has always made and sold things - greeting cards, Halloween costumes, jewelry, hats, pillows, etc. I learned to sew at 15 and have been sewing up a storm since then but really love making jewelry - the more colorful, the better. I've made masks, bags, and accessories of all kinds for all of my shows; my style is labor-intensive, fussy and counter-productive to time management but it is very artistically fulfilling. Everything in my shop is dreamed up, shopped for, designed, assembled, photographed, marketed and mailed out by me in a smoke-free, pet-free home and studio. Support handmade!

I have another shop for destash and vintage:
http://www.overthetopoverstock.etsy.com

I will combine shipping on items from both shops...just convo me before paying.

OTT has been on BROADWAY; Patti LuPone and her understudy wore 1920's-style earrings that I made for her as Mama Rose in "GYPSY". Dee Hoty wore a coral necklace that I made for her in the West Coast tryout of "Stormy Weather", based on the life of Lena Horne. Dee plays Kay Thompson, and the costumes for both shows were designed by Martin Pakledinaz, a friend of this shop.

STORE POLICIES:

**New York City buyers will automatically be charged the current rate of sales tax at checkout.**

*RESERVED ITEMS*

Reserves are possible for a reasonable period of time, which is no more than five days. I will email you on the fifth day and if I don't hear from you, will un-reserve it by the next morning.

*PAYMENT*

Payment is accepted through Paypal or Direct Checkout. Please be sure that your address is confirmed with the USPS. I cannot ship to an unconfirmed address, will contact you after the transaction and hold the item until an address can be confirmed.

*SHIPPING and INSURANCE*

I normally send items via USPS First Class Mail. Items are always padded and cushioned against breakage in a gift box or swaddled in padding inside a padded envelope.

Due to recent mail failures with USPS I am forced to add insurance and handling on every item, in case it is lost, in order to file a claim.

If you don't pick up your items at your local post office, they will be sent back to me anywhere from two to three months after I ship them. If an item is returned to me, I will send it out to you again at your expense only. If you are too busy to make a trip to your local post office, I suggest having it sent to your work address.

A note on shipping costs:
I use 'calculated shipping' on Etsy. This means that shipping costs are determined by your location and the weights and measurements of the items you purchase. Usually this system is pretty accurate, but on occasion will combine purchases in a way that is more expensive than need be. Be assured that excess charges (after postage, packaging costs and insurance) will be refunded.

OVERSEAS SHIPPING OPTIONS:

First Class International
6-10 days delivery time

Priority Mail International
Insurance and tracking available
6-10 days delivery time

Express Mail International

To My International Customers:
I do not collect any customs when sending our packages. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. I have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and Over The Top is not responsible for those charges. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency. Returns will not be accepted due to customs fees.

Priority shipping is very expensive, so please allow the maximum time for your purchase to reach you, especially at Christmas.

REFUNDS

If you are unhappy with your purchase, I will refund your item, less the shipping charges, upon receipt of the unwanted item **within fourteen (14) days**. PLEASE CONTACT ME before returning. I take great care to photograph and describe my items so that what you see is what you get, but if I have made a mistake, I will take the item back. Shipping charges on returns are your responsibility and the item must be insured. I regret that I cannot refund a piece that goes AWOL on its way back to me if it is not insured.

I offer refunds for missing shipments and items that arrive damaged. (If item arrives damaged, please take photos of item and packaging, it will help for insurance purposes. Customer may also be required to sign an affidavit of loss from the insurance company. Thanks!)

There are no returns on sale items.

CUSTOM WORK

For custom work, your approval is required before shipping. If visuals have been approved and the item was sent, further changes and shipping are an additional charge.
