Announcement   Great to see you. Thank you for stopping. I hope you will love my work as much as I love producing it. Browse and view. I cannot stop the Muse. I am here for it to use.
Sometimes it's Fun to be someone else.
The latest I will ship for Halloween is the 26th. It is still be in the hands of the USPS.

Special Orders
If you would like something made, please contact me and we can discuss it.
I aim for a 2 week period for a custom mask but this can change with workload and the creation time needed. There is an additional charge of $25.00 for a custom order if it is a new pattern to work out.
* If I have made a mask like you want before, there is no additional charge.

Be sure to buy or order early before the holidays.
Make sure you will have that Birthday or Christmas gift on time for the one you love!
AND You don't want waiting on your mask to be the scariest part of Halloween :)

**** I do not overnight. ****
I have never found any company that can keep that promise to me.
As you see, I have been let down before. Which means YOU get let down.

I use USPS, usually Priority
There are only a few circumstances where I do not mail Priority, that would be multiple items that I can not pack comfortably in my regular box. This depends on the sizes of the items involved. I would still use USPS, probably via "Ground" for the bigger box, which will take about 6 to 10 business days as opposed to USPS Priority that usually arrives 3 to 4 business days, depending on the destination.

The fit
I use myself as a model keeping a general fit in mind while trying to replicate the object or animal I have set my intentions on.
These masks are light and comfortable. They are made of leather, using acrylic paint and sealer to decorate. I have added felt inside some for a better fit.
They rest against the forehead and ride on the nose, using a ribbon to secure them. The ribbon can be secured directly behind the head over or under the hair.
These masks are made for adults. Use common sense when tying the ribbon around you and remember, wearing a mask could hinder your vision.

All the items are original pieces of art that I have designed and produced myself.
They are signed and dated.

Thank you for being here and Please Feel Free to view my Sales or Sold Items.
Contact me if you would like a special mask. Thank You, Susan

Stop by often and have fun.

I ship within the United States
Tax -
I have always been responsible with my shop and reported taxes on items sold in my home state of Virginia.
My invoices did not reflect this though as I took it from MY total charged and reported it at each required quarter without listing it on my invoices.

With the changing tax laws, I find that this burden has been put upon the buyer to go through all their on-line purchases.
I am now showing the charge of this tax for items sold in Virginia.
You can see that you are being charged 5.3% Va tax if I sell in Virginia.
It will be added at the end of checkout so you will not end up paying double at the end of the year.
If you live in another state that requires you to pay tax on items purchased on-line, that will be your responsibility.

This is truly a work of art! Her clever shaping of the leather and the perfect painting makes a beautiful larger than life rendition of this animal. He was lovingly packaged and shipped quickly. We'll put him in our will so he will always have a loving home! Keep up the good work.

Policies
I welcome interaction. If you have a special request, let me know as I may be able to work it out.

Buy early for your events. If you would like something made, Please contact me to make sure I have time to create it for you. Especially before Holiday's.

You don't want waiting on your mask to be the scariest part of Halloween :)
Also be sure you will have that Birthday or Christmas gift on time for the one you love!

For those special requests, I usually allow 2 weeks to produce one mask, after the final plan is set.
I would still have to consider my work loads at different periods.
Times can be a lot shorter. I have produced some in half the time if my workload is low. It doesn't hurt to ask.
I will do my best!
If I can't accommodate your schedule, I will let you know so you can seek out other options.

I have made many masks that have not been on my site.... so just ask.
You can check out the Sales or Sold items as it helps to see what Could Be!
They might inspire a creation I could make for you!

Sometimes it's Fun to be someone else.

Va sales Tax -
I have always been responsible with my shop and reported taxes on items sold in my home state of Virginia.
My invoices did not reflect this though as I took it from MY total and reported it at each required quarter. It was not listed on the invoice.

With the changing tax laws, I find that this burden has been put upon the buyer to go through their on-line purchases to report tax.

I am now showing this tax in each total sale.
You can see that you were charged 5.3% Va tax at checkout if I sell in Virginia.
This will be added to your bill so you will know to not pay double at the end of the year.
If you live in another state that requires you to pay tax on items purchased on-line, that will be your responsibility.
Shipping
I use USPS.
As a general rule I ship priority.
I ship when I have a paid confirmation and as soon as I can get to the Post Office abiding their hours.
You will usually receive your item in 2-4 business days. I am usually able to ship the same or next business day unless we have discussed making a special mask.

You bought it, I want to get it to you BUT if you make a purchase of several items that do not fit into my regular 12" by 12" by 8" shipping box, there may be a longer mailing schedule or wait for you to receive your items. I find mailing a larger box much too expensive for Priority.
This extends the travel time to get your package. In these situations I will use a slower form of shipping due to higher costs. Usually this will be USPS Ground that has had arrival times of 6 to 10 days. I do try to pack as smart and snugly as I can, keeping the well being of the masks in mind.

These masks ARE "one of a kind art."
**Please make me aware of a different shipping address from the Etsy or Paypal on record.
I ship to the address listed in the Paypal or Etsy transaction. Make sure these are correct.
Consider if you can receive the large package mentioned above, safely at your door. I believe you can contact your local Post office and request they hold the package for you.
Once an item is shipped and I have confirmation, it is in the hands of USPS.

I have never found a true overnight shipping process for my large boxes so I don't even try anymore. I DO NOT OVERNIGHT.

I am not shipping outside the U.S.
Having said that...there have been requests that I have filled and shipped outside of the US even though they make me very nervous dealing with the reliability.
I will consider each case. I need to feel comfortable in the situation before I proceed with that.
The costs of those shippings, which are usually high, will be passed on to the customer along with any customs fees.
It usually takes me a couple of days to figure those charges for a particular item since I do not do this on a regular basis.

All sales are final and the seller is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final.
Because masks are usually purchased for special events, returning them is not an option.
Ask any questions that will help you feel comfortable before your purchase.
I want you to be happy.
