Announcement   ~Find You - Be You~

Close your eyes - do you hear the lapping of the water of the canals of Venice during Carnivale, smell Turkish delight and cassia cinnamon, and hear a footloose violinist playing his soul bare in a moonlit forest clearing? You're in exactly the right place, at just the right time. Pluck a piece of grass to chew on, and mosey through my shop. You are such a savage dreamer - don't settle for anything less than magic.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Many pieces are made with many vintage and antique parts - and because they are rescued and old, they may not be in perfect condition. Decaying luxury is my aesthetic.


"There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
- Anais Nin

Although I so appreciate your interest, I am not currently accepting custom orders - I just can't keep up.

I feel like my designs are becoming more true to me. Inspired by Nature. Inspired by spirit.

I just got back from tribal Revolution, and I'm having a huge blowout sale! 50% off of everything in the shop! Shop right now! I almost never do this deep of a discount. This is the time to get the pieces that have been on your list.
My students after a hair ornamentation workshop... So beautiful!

About

Find You - Be You

I began my shop when I found myself single mommying and going to college around 10 years ago. Once I realized that people liked my products when I posted them on Facebook, I took it a step farther and put them on Etsy - and the rest is history.

I love the fact that clothing and adornments can communicate, can change how you feel, and can show the world that you are person that stands out in a crowd and values themselves. Of course, there are a million ways to show those things, but costuming has always, through the ages, been a common theme among all cultures.

    It's meeee!

  • Frank

    Stress Relief Specialist

    Frank helps mainly by being a big stress relief ball of fuzziness. When he was a tiny guy, he ate some string and almost died - but my customers saved his life by helping me pay for for his vet bill! I've never sold that much, that fast. Thanks, guys

  • Gummy

    Head Of World Domination Dept.

    Gummy lost all of her teeth due to a freak condition where her body attacked them as if they were foreign objects. She has never forgiven fate, and is bent on world domination. Just as soon as she figures out how to get some falsies.

  • Nixie

    Bed Holder Downer

    Nixie is a desperate figure. She will never quite recover from the advent of Frank the kitten, and giving up her role as baby. She has taken to sleeping all day, running around like a freak when not sleeping, and looking sour.

  • Rhon

    Tummy Cuddler

    The newest addition - Rhon (aka Heironious due to a gender mixup early on) lulls us into thinking she's the absolute personification of sweetness. But there are times that we catch her staring at us from across the room, emptily...

Shop policies

Last updated on October 7, 2014
Welcome! I am happy to reserve items for you for up to a week, but please don't use a coupon code to purchase it if you do so, or any sale offers. I've had too many people 'reserve' items, only to wait until I had my next sale to purchase. This isn't fair to me as a business woman, when someone else may have purchased the item at the full price while I was holding it for the buyer who reserved it. Reserving items, also, often incurs more work for me in case someone accidentally purchases it - I then have to add another relisting fee, and may even have yet another relisting fee to pay if your reservation of the item extends beyond Etsy's time limit for items on the site.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I currently only accept PayPal. You will have 3 days to pay for your purchase, otherwise it will be relisted so that others can have a chance!

If you are reserving an item, you may then NOT use any coupon codes on it, or sales. It is full price.

Also, if you are reserving an item that costs over $100, you must immediately put half down (nonrefundable), and the payment plan may not extend over more than 60 days. I will not send you the item until it is paid in full.
Shipping
I use the USPS. If the package is shipped internationally, I can't be held responsible for customs problems- there are countries out there that will just take what they want when packages come in! Because the amount of orders I receive is huge, I now visit the post office once to twice a week (so that I have enough time to design new items each week, to keep the shop full), so please be patient. I will ship out your order soon. Allow around 2 weeks for the USPS to deliver it, up to a month and a half if international.

Please be nice to me and don't leave mean feedback for shipping issues that I can't prevent! Just write to me and ask what's up. Oh - and I can't ship to Italy. They don't allow lace or hair ornaments through customs, among a ton of other things.
Refunds and Exchanges
I don't give refunds or exchanges on bras, hair ornaments of any kind or skin ornaments of any kind, due to health codes and common sense. Also, most of my items are one of a kind and handmade. I represent them fairly in the photos. If you need an exchange of store credit, you will need to pay the shipping fees (unless the mistake was mine!).
Also, please be aware that I am NOT a perfectionist, despite being a lover of detail. There might be a few threads that you have to trim, although the overall piece will be beautiful and everything firmly attached. Old materials may have missing stones or be slightly damaged - those who love antiques understand that age can do this to materials.
I'm also not an exemplary seamstress - just a gifted designer. Remember that my seams may not be straight, and although the piece will look beautiful on, if you look at the insides and construction, I've likely broken every rule in the book. It will last, however.
Additional policies and FAQs
Additional policy: I require you to have a blast performing in my pieces. I require you to breathe deeply and know that you're amazing! Kick some butt in your new costume item!
