The Attic Studio

The Attic Studio is a small art studio in the upper story of a ramshackle old farm house. Packed from floor to ceiling with a wide variety of art supplies (many of which I've gleaned from the woods, fields, and streams of rural West Virginia), The Attic Studio overlooks a beautiful landscape that inspires me in the creation of any number of fanciful and arts and crafts.

In addition, I love rummaging through thrift stores, so you'll also spy an array of my fun & fantastic finds in my shop.

Returns and exchange details
I do not refund custom 'made to order' or personalized items. While I'm reluctant to accept returns on other items, please reach out to me via 'convo' (Etsy messages) if you wish to arrange a return.

For returns, contact me within 7 days of receiving your order. The item must be returned in its original condition within 14 days (if not returned in original condition, buyer is responsible for any loss in value). Buyer is responsible for return shipping, which must include package tracking. Please save and re-use the original packaging for ease of shipment. When the item is received and inspected, the original item price will be refunded.

Please keep tabs on your tracking number and send me a message if anything goes amiss -- has your item been lost, delayed, or damaged in the mail? Let me know so I can help....and remember, items shipped via Priority Mail automatically receive shipping insurance.

Have you read all of the shop policies? Great! Use coupon code YESIDID10 to get 10% off your order!
Please use whichever method is most convenient for you. Once the payment clears (which is typically immediate), your item will ship within 1 to 3 business days.
If payment does not clear within 7 to 14 business days (depending on payment platform), the transaction will be cancelled & fully refunded to the customer.
SHIPPING COSTS: Shipping charges for most items are based on the weight & size of the item and packaging, plus the buyer's location. You may choose from different shipping options in most of my listings. I recommend Priority Mail, as it is faster and comes with shipping insurance.
A small handling fee is included in the shipping cost. This varies from item to item, depending on the type of packaging required.

PACKAGE TRACKING: All items are shipped with package tracking -- even small 'paper' items like cards & bookmarks -- every item comes with proof of shipment and delivery.

MEDIA MAIL: Books and magazines are shipped via Media Mail, which is typically a bit slower than First Class or Priority. These items are eligible for shipping upgrades at check-out.

TIMING: If you need an item by a certain date, please contact me before making your purchase to discuss shipping options. My rural location can sometimes make rush orders difficult.

PACKAGING: I recycle and re-use packing materials whenever possible. This sometimes includes the use of food boxes as packaging -- if you have any serious allergies please let me know so I don't inadvertently use an inappropriate box to package your item. I also work in a 'pet-friendly' space, which may be an issue for customers who are allergic.
Additional policies and FAQs
OUT IN THE BOONIES: I live in a rural area. There is no cell phone service here (!) and the landline phone, internet, and even the mail may be interrupted a few times a year by adverse weather conditions -- potentially causing brief delays in shipment.
Whenever possible, I notify my current customers of these outages, and I always strive to send replies and ship items as speedily as possible. Thank you for your patience & understanding when I'm unable to do so immediately. :)

Q: How big is it?
A: Sizes of items are included in item descriptions, titles, and photos whenever possible. I realize these details may be difficult to access on certain devices, so if you can't view the pertinent information, send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Q: Can you make me a personalized item?
A: I certainly can; I will happily take commissions for a variety of handmade, hand-painted, or handcrafted items. Just let me know what you want, and I'll give you details on pricing and how long it will take.

Q: Will you give this item to me for free / will you give me a discount?
A: My prices are firm. I do, however, have sales or offer coupon codes from time to time. The best place to learn about such sales is in my shop announcement or on my Facebook page: AtticStudioWV.

Q: You say you work in a 'pet-friendly' space, what does that mean?
A: I have 6 cats and 2 dogs who do sometimes 'invade' my studio (so my items may not be suitable for those with severe allergies). I also have a flock of chickens...but they don't have access to the interior of my house! ;)

Q: Why don't you ship to my country?
A: For a variety of reasons, I no longer ship internationally. Perhaps you could utilize a forwarding service to purchase from my shop.
