Hard to find awesome piece. Thank you. Perfect for my needs
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.
In late 2014, my husband and I located a wonderful "brick and mortar" facility in downtown Morganton, a lovely and very historic town at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina. We are now moving all my work space and inventory to that location. It is our goal to eventually open the shop for on-site retail sales, but for now, we have more space to expand our inventory and also live in a house without boxes stacked everywhere!
Many thanks to all our customers for helping us to build a truly homegrown business that offers quality products at reasonable prices. We promise to continue to serve you with honesty and integrity into the future! We love getting the photos of your finished work, so please keep them coming!

PLEASE NOTE: If you find that you must cancel an order, you must do so prior to your order being prepared for shipment. Once your order is boxed and postage is purchased, the order will not be canceled or refunded. I purchase shipping labels through Etsy, so you will be automatically notified when your order has been packaged for shipment.
I will ship your items within three business days (usually same or next business day) of receiving cleared payment via USPS. All millinery items are shipped in boxes to prevent crushing. Shipping charges over actual cost of postage and materials will be cheerfully refunded to your Paypal or credit card 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 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. Most 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 do not falsify customs forms.
