The handle was lovely but that was about all I was pleased with. The parasol itself is rather mediocre and the strap and closure added are quite cheap looking and don't at all work with the look of the parasol. the strap is barely attached with a screw into the wood dowel which is the parasol base. Not at all sturdy. For the amount of money I spent I should have just purchased and restored an antique. As it is I will have to do a lot of work to fix it up to make it usable.

About

Clever Little Things

The award winning small business AtticRaiders started off with a bang. A literal one almost ten years ago that left artist and entrepreneur Melissa Wartenberg partially paralyzed and without the use of her left limbs. But thanks to the hit to the head, it gave the necessary bump towards pursuing a career as a professional artist which lead to AtticRaiders - a shop that features a handsome collection of accessories that are all about the clever little things.

From tea cases to guitar pick holsters, each item is inspired to be a little something that brings practicality and function together with style. Each handmade piece that's purchased from AtticRaiders is an item that can be truly personalized by slipping in something familiar into something new...

AtticRaiders is about the clever little things; Things to bring reminders of good times, fond friends and memories of home along with you. Wherever your feet may take you, from AtticRaiders you’ll have a little thing to hold onto – to bring a treat, a smile or a laugh to your journey.

After all – it’s about the little things in life that make life so worth living.
Happy travels.

Payment
Q: What kind of payment options are there for in store purchases?
~I accept: PayPal and most major credit cards

IN STORE PURCHASES:

Q: I can’t make full payment on my recent purchase from your store; can I make a partial payment?
~No,if full payment cannot be made on an item IN-STORE that’s ready to purchase DO NOT buy it, ask me to place the item on hold instead until full payment can be sent.

Q: Oops, I made a purchase but I can’t pay for it all, what do I do?
~You can either contact me here on Etsy to cancel the order for you or log into your Etsy account >Purchases and look for your recent purchase and cancel it yourself.

Q: Can you put an item on hold for me?
~Yes! Any item IN STORE that has been put on hold will be put on hold for 1 week/ 5 business days only and if the item is not paid for within 2 businesses days after the holding time has expired then the item will become available to the public for purchase again.

Q: How long do I have to make payment for my purchase in your shop?
~ Customers have 2 business days to make full payment on all in store purchases. Failure to make payment within 2 business days from the day of purchase and no contact from you to me has been made despite my messages being sent asking for the amount due to be paid will result in the purchase being terminated, negative feedback will be left and the items will not be sent. The items will be made available to the public again for sale.

Q: Do you offer layaway?
~ Only for custom orders.

Q: What about taxes and extra fees, do you pay that or do I?
~You the buyer are responsible for any additional fees that may occur. This includes but is not limited to, border fees, country tax, insuficient funds bank fee, etc.
Shipping
**********SHIPPING!***********************************************************
Q: How do you ship your items?
~ All purchases are shipped in a sturdy box, are well padded and sent with an automatic tracking number and Insurance to destinations in the USA, Canada and International.

International destination shipping fees cover International Surface AIR shipping. This includes a tracking number and full item value insurance for the safety of your purchase and the peace of mind for us both. Should you want a cheaper shipping option, limitations will begin to apply but you may ask for a different shipping option to save money OR save time.

A message will be sent to you to inform you that your purchase has been sent and a link to the Canada Post website tracking page is included in the message so you can easily check the progress of your purchase at anytime.

Q: Can I have my purchase shipped to arrive sooner?
~Yes, AtticRaiders can ship your purchase through Canada Post via “Next A.M” to arrive the next weekday morning. Please contact me on Etsy for a shipping cost estimate.
* Overnight shipping is available ONLY ON WEEKDAYS!

Q: Do you ship internationally?
~Yes, I can ship to any International destination with the following exception(s): Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Thailand

Q: That’s a steep shipping fee, why is it so high?
~The shipping fee pays for a shipping option that includes a tracking number and insurance for all of the contents shipped. It is the most accurate flat rate available.

Charging for a shipping option with a tracking number and insurance means ,in the rare case, if AtticRaiders needs to open a claim about a lost and/or damaged package, having that tracking number and full content value listed means the claim may fall in our favor for compensation.

I believe in fair shipping costs and do my best to offer a reasonable shipping fee for each item. With tracking and insurance on the purchase, we can easily track the package at our convenience and be reassured that our package is safe.

Q: Can you ship it any cheaper?
~Yes, however please be advised that with NO TRACKING NUMBER AND INSURANCE MEANS NO REFUND! A cheaper shipping option forgoes any ability to track the parcel, disables the option for an exchange, repair, refund and return between AtticRaiders and the purchaser. Choosing a shipping option with no tracking makes the item FINAL SALE.


=============================================================
I don't own the shipping companies nor can I foretell the future for when unexpected events occur that may delay a package from being delivered on time. When making a purchase, please consider the possibility that the item may be delayed for reasons outside my influence.
==============================================================
