1000dragonflies' Shop Announcement

FOR AN ADDITIONAL 20%OFF 'SEWON & LOOSE STONES ONLY' USE CODE 20OFF50 MINIMUM PURCHASE OF $50 REQUIRED. DISCOUNT NOT APPLIED TO SHIPPING.

ATTN: "VERY SIGNIFICANT INFORMATION!!".....
FIRST CLASS POSTED INTERNATIONAL ORDERS TAKE WEEKS TO MORE THAN A MONTH (AND BEYOND IF STUCK IN CUSTOMS) TO BE DELIVERED BY THE POSTAL SYSTEM. THIS IS EXPECTED AND STANDARD. IT IS THE SAME IF I ORDER ITEMS OUTSIDE THE USA...IT TAKES WEEKS TO MORE THAN A MONTH FOR ME TO RECEIVE 'MY' ORDER. "MY SHIPPING TIME" IS THE DAY I PUT YOUR ORDER IN THE MAILBOX. THE REALITY IS THAT THIS APPLIES TO EVERY SINGLE SELLER "AND", AVERAGE PERSON SHIPPING A PACKAGE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY ACROSS THE GLOBE, EVEN YOU, IF YOU SHIP A PACKAGE TO SOMEONE FAR AWAY. I DO NOT OWN OR OPERATE ANY ENTITY USED TO TRANSPORT YOUR ORDER ACROSS BOARDERS, ON TRAINS, PLANES OR SHIPS, NOR DO I WORK AT EVERY CUSTOMS CHECKPOINT ON THE WAY TO YOUR HOME, OR ANY OF THE POSTAL OFFICES BETWEEN HERE AND THERE. THEREFORE...IT IS 100% OUT OF MY CONTROL ONCE TAKEN FROM MY MAILBOX. THIS IS COMMON SENSE, PLEASE BE AWARE. I WILL STOP OFFERING INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IF I AM BLAMED OR HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE FUNCTION OF THE WORLD'S POSTAL SYSTEM, CUSTOMS OFFICES, EXPORT METHODS OR ANY OTHER ENTITY OF WHICH I AM NOT "PERSONALLY" INVOLVED.
WHEN I SHOP INTERNATIONALLY I UNDERSTAND THE SHIPPING PROCESS AND NEVER EXPECT ANY DIFFERENT, NOR DO I BLAME THE PERSON I PURCHSED ITEMS FROM.....

OUR POSTAL SERVICE HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE TO PRINT STANDARD "1ST CLASS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING" LABELS FROM HOME. THIS MEANS I CAN LOWER THE FEES FOR ADDITIONAL ITEMS.
IT IS NOW ONLY $0.20 (20 CENTS) FOR ADDITIONAL ITEMS, THE SAME AS FOR MY USA CUSTOMERS.
SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES DID GO UP IN PRICE, THIS IS REFLECTED IN MY INITIAL SHIPPING FEES. THE ADDITIONAL FEES INCLUDE THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH ETSY.

Coupon codes cannot be applied to special orders, this is a standing shop policy.

RHINESTONES ARE MEASURED IN MILLIMETERS, (MM). IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CALIPER FOR MEASURING ITEMS YOU CAN USE A RULER ETC AND CONVERT THE SIZES. THIS LINK BELOW IS TO A CONVERSION WEBSITE, VERY HELPFUL ;)

SHOP RULES...

PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT SHIPPING TIME OR ANY OTHER NEED YOU HAVE ""BEFORE"" MAKING A PURCHASE.

COUPON CODES...DO NOT APPLY TO SPECIAL ORDERS...

≈!≈ Coupon codes "MUST" be used at the time of checkout. No refunds will be given to those who do not use a coupon code at the time of checkout. Please be aware that coupon codes are meant to be used ""at the time they are offered"". Please do not try to use an old code without my permission or knowledge, it is VERY bad form to do so.
When offered, I post coupon code information on my shop's main page as well as on the ''1000dragonflies profile'' section. I even hint to it in my shops name, banner and on my profile picture. I feel that I go above and beyond to inform my customers of any coupons. Therefore I cannot offer refunds for those who miss it. I offer very fair prices as it is.

HANDLING TIME MAY BE 3 - 5 BUSINESS DAYS BUT, I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ALLOW 7 - 9 BUSINESS DAYS IN THE ETSY SYSTEM AS A BUFFER, IN CASE OF UNFORSEEN EVENTS.
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT UPON RECEIPT OF YOUR PURCHASE TO STOP BY MY PAGE AND LEAVE FEEDBACK. I WANT TO "KNOW" THAT IT HAS REACHED YOU SAFELY AND THAT YOU ARE HAPPY. IF FOR ANY REASON YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED BE SURE TO CONTACT ME SO THAT I MAY MAKE THINGS RIGHT.

I will do my best to ship orders within 3-5 "business" days, once payment has cleared. Once the Postman has physically taken your package I will mark it shipped in your purchases section and add tracking if there is any. Tracking can also be found in your PayPal account's activity page. If you have notifications from PayPal set correctly you will receive an email when I print your shipping label, this does not mean it is physically shipped. As I said...refer to your purchases section in Etsy to check if I have marked it shipped.

PRICES AND SHOP INFO...

My prices are much lower than 'most' shops here. This is because I mostly purchase stones in bulk. I set my prices based on both what I paid and the rareness of a jewel. Rare stones cost me more, so this clearly is passed on when I chose to share them.
Just to clarify, I am not a retail store :) I am letting go of excess personal jewelry supplies and collections. I do not restock most items. Once they are gone that may be it. I search for and collect unique rhinestones and glass or crystal items. Most of the glass and crystal I collect is of vintage origins, therefore not all pieces are in pristine condition. I love this fact :) They have a history, be it hiding on a dusty shelf in a forgotten warehouse, or packed lovingly away by a fellow collector.
