CathyandAlex's Shop Announcement

Hi, new sections have been added. I have decided to slowly fold my other shop (hmpietz/handmade) into this one to simplify my life. This shop will have both the Vintage and the Handmade items.

***VINTAGE ITEMS, some have been stored away and forgotten for many years. They are now looking for a home where they will be cherished once again.

***I use only non-toxic glues and cleaners, they are water based, which means that when fully cured they will be water resistant, but NOT waterproof. Most of the metals that I use are coated - to protect the metal from the acidity of the skin and to protect the skin from metallic elements. So please do not use harsh chemicals, a soft moist cloth will do. I use Renaissance Wax (used by museums for restoration, cleaning and protection) to guard the finish on the metals. Someone here insists that olive oil will do just fine, but that would be up to your discretion.


*Easy returns. Items can be returned within 7 days of receipt for a full refund, if in original condition. Return shipping to be paid by purchaser.

* Payment can be done through Pay-Pal, direct check out, Etsy gift cards, checks and money orders. Items paid by check will be shipped as soon as the check clears.

**INTERNATIONAL shipping - purchaser is responsible for all tariffs and customs fees that may apply. Please check with your local Post Office BEFORE purchase.

***Thank you for visiting my shop, I hope that you found some interesting pieces and that you will come back to browse again.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
