About

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!

Welcome to A Pink Swan! Here is a place to find all sorts of vintage and contemporary millinery flowers & leaves and craft supplies for your creations! I hope you find something that pleases you, and that you'll visit time and again. Feel free to convo me with questions and requests!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
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, or other fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

Residents of North Carolina will be charged 6.75% sales tax in accordance with state law.

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.
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 (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.
Refunds and Exchanges
I describe the items I sell accurately and I have a "no refunds" policy unless I have misrepresented an item. If you change your mind when you receive an item, you may return it to me for exchange or shop credit for the original purchase price (excluding postage and shipping costs). The item must be returned within 7 days, and must be in the same condition as when it was sent to you. Return postage is the responsibility of the buyer in all cases. There are no returns or exchanges for items marked as "clearance sale." Please note: many items I sell are vintage and are sold in "as is" condition. Vintage items may be unused, but they are not new and should not be expected to be in new condition. Please read item descriptions carefully and ask questions before you purchase.
