Your story in one sentence.
Hello!! Thank you for taking a minute to read about lil ol' me and my Shop! I'm Allison, and as you can see, I love vintage pieces and giving new life to all of my vintage finds!
I started creating jewelry in 2008 when a friend of mine mentioned Etsy to me. I had no idea Etsy even existed, and as soon as I started browsing, my obsession with finding new vintage items began. As I became more knowledgeable about stones, metals, antiquing, I have strived to bring a sense of romance a pretty into pieces that can be worn everyday or for special occasions.
Over the past couple years, things have definitely changed for me - I had my son in October 2011 and am expecting a little girl in June 2014! With every piece of jewelry I create, I hope that re-purposing and buying USA made metals will help to instill a love of the past and home in my children :)
My passion is for found bits and baubles, from the sparkly to the antiqued, and bringing new purpose to pretties you can wear everyday!
As you can see by my prices, I try to keep my prices low. I use sterling silver, silver plated, brass and copper.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Money Order
Please Note: Orders not paid within 3 days will be automatically cancelled unless you convo me otherwise. Also, there is the potential for negative feedback to be given (I really do not like to do this!!). Please realize there is extra legwork on my end to cancel sales, emailing both the buyer and Etsy, to get Sales cancelled.
I use USPS! I ship purchases First Class, and in a bubble mailer. Your pretties are shipped safely in giftboxes - they protect during transit, and are perfect for gift giving :) If you need your items quicker than USPS First Class Shipping allows, please convo me for Priority or Express delivery options!
I do my best to get all orders shipped in 5-7 business days, but usually sooner! Being the mommy to a crazy toddler and a new little one on the way, I do my best to get your order out to you ASAP. I know what it is like to be excitedly waiting for your purchase!
Please note: Shipping charges also include the cost of all shipping materials, bubble wrap, etc, and all Paypal/Etsy fees. I strive to keep shipping fees low! Delivery Confirmation iis included with all domestic shipments and some international shipments. You can verify the tracking number in your Etsy account :)
If your items need to ship to multiple addresses, please make separate purchases, or Convo me prior to purchasing to have a reserved listing set up especially for you!
One last mention - If you need your items within a specific amount of time, please please PLEASE send me a convo. I can set up a listing for USPS Priority Shipping (extra fees for Priority or Express Mail via USPS). The USPS general timeline is 7 business days from time of mailing, so if you need an item and are crunched for time, we can work together to get your pretties to you!!!
Refunds and Exchanges
If your purchase arrives damaged or broken, please contact me within 5 days of receipt. The item can be returned by the purchaser, and I will repair the piece, and send it right back! I will also refund your shipping charges :)
I try my absolute best to ensure no damage will occur during shipping, however, it is naive to think that it can't happen. I will do anything I can to make sure you are happy with the condition your item(s) arrive to you!
