About APinkSwan

Sales 88,656
On Etsy since 2012

Contemporary and vintage millinery flowers, leaves and supplies to charm and inspire you!

For many years, I have admired and collected vintage millinery and used bits and pieces in various corsages, brooches, and other craft projects. The original makers' attention to detail in many of these vintage flowers is something I always marvel at, and I think it is important to keep that beauty in our lives. Artful millinery supplies are not just a thing of the past however, and I have discovered many examples of beautiful contemporary flowers and leaves. Contemporary millinery can be absolutely gorgeous as well, and I am NOT talking about the cheap "plastic stem" varieties, but rather the carefully hand-crafted blossoms made to last as heirlooms over time. Both vintage and new examples can be meticulously botanically correct, or abstract in form and color. Whichever they are, I take great joy in collecting them, and sharing them with you in my Etsy shop, APinkSwan.

Many thanks to all my customers for helping me to build a truly homegrown business that offers quality products at reasonable prices. I promise to continue to serve you with honesty and integrity into the future! I love getting the photos of your finished work, so please keep them coming!

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.

Payment

I accept payment via PayPal, Etsy gift card, or by credit card through Etsy. Payment is expected immediately or the item will be relisted. I am happy to accept requests for custom / reserve listings, however they must be purchased within three (3) days of listing. Reserve listings and custom orders not paid for within 3 days will be removed unless prior arrangements are made. Please do not ask for a reserved listing that you do not intend to buy!

All taxes, tariffs, VAT, or other fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Please do not ask us to alter customs forms. That is a crime and we will not do it. Noting your international order as a gift on Etsy will not change customs forms!

Shipping

Shipping prices on listings are for First Class mail. If you need expedited shipping, please message me for a quote.

I will ship your items within three business days of receiving cleared payment via USPS. If I am traveling for my day job and shipping the shipping schedule is affected, that will be noted in the shop announcement. Shipping charges over actual cost of postage and materials will be cheerfully refunded to your account when I package your order. Please make sure that your address on file with Paypal and Etsy is correct as that is the address where your purchase will be shipped!

I welcome international customers. Quoted rates for international shipments from my shop are estimates - and I will refund any shipping fees that exceed actual cost of packing materials, insurance and postage. All customs, VAT, and duty fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Please note that I make no promises on how long it will take for international packages to arrive as it can range from a few days to a few months - depending on destination and processing through customs. International shipments are insured - but I can not file a claim for missing packages until 45 days have passed from the ship date. All requests for missing packages must be received within 90 days of purchase as that is when insurance claim coverage expires! If you need your package quickly, please contact me for pricing on expedited shipping options. You are responsible for knowing about any postal or import restrictions in your country that would prevent delivery to you. I purchase most of my international shipping labels directly through shipping carriers and you will receive a tracking number. However, in rare instances we purchase international shipping labels through Etsy, then most international shipping is through various global carriers, meaning tracking numbers are not available but the order progress can be monitored through your Etsy account. In any case, I can't make things go faster and I can't intercede on your behalf once a package leaves my hands! As of July 1, 2022 I am no longer shipping directly to Germany. Once I become registered in their LUCID system and find a cost-effective recycler, I will resume reshipping there.

Marking your purchase as a gift on Etsy only means it will include a gift message inside for the recipient. It does not mean VAT or other relevant import fees may not be due upon arrival. Providing false information on customs forms is a crime with serious penalties and we do not do it.

Additional policies and FAQs

We are not wholesalers and do not offer wholesale prices. The foundation of our business is providing fair prices to everyone. Many items are on sale in the shop, and there is also a clearance section if you are looking for deeper discounts. Some discount may be available for very large bulk purchases of certain items.

We are a supply shop. We do not sell ready to wear pieces. We do not add pins or clips to the items we sell in the shop, though some items may come with that from the manufacturer. If the flower comes with a pin or clip - that will be noted in the item description / specifications. It is easy to add those yourself though - just convo me for details.

I have another Etsy shop and I welcome you to visit there. TheSwanPond is a place to find all sorts of vintage and contemporary floral bouquets, trims and lace, handmade brooches and accessories, and vintage home decor items. You can find it here www.etsy.com/shop/theswanpond
