Charming Shop.

Wallpaper pattern-inspired mixed media artwork for those who like a bit of vintage in their life.

My name is Marissa and I am an artist based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. I offer my art and confetti through my shop, CharmingShop. I work with patterns, colour and paper collage to layer together complex and intricate mixed media pieces. Each one of my works is vintage-inspired and influenced by certain eras, general feelings or well known patterns in the world of textiles.

If you're wondering about my process, my repetition of patterns are all hand-drawn. I work panel by panel to repeat tiny patterns to give a wallpaper-like effect. I use all types of media to create my art. From watercolour paper, to cut up pieces of packaging, to Watercolour pencils. I both create my own patterns and use found patterns to compliment my pieces and add to the overall look.

I decided to and enjoy offering my original artwork, and for good reason too! All of my pieces are highly detailed and textured. Only the originals will do. Part of the experience is to be able to witness the mood and kitschy-ness of my pieces through their raw and original form. Just know you'll have a completely one of a kind item in your possession.

CharmingShopVintage was created out of a love for old things and gently began spawning new ideas, like my atomic era illustration prints and my hand-cut and hand-packaged confetti inspired by my own artwork.

Thank you for your curiosity and support.
It is much appreciated.

Shop policies

Last updated on February 24, 2014
Welcome to the CharmingShop policy page! CharmingShop is a one-woman business run by me, Marissa. This allows me to put all my heart and soul into my shop and all the adorable, kitschy art and fashion jewellery I make. I love my customers and aim to give you the best service I possibly can. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

Now it's times to get serious (well not too serious I hope!)

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I put great detail into my item descriptions and my photos to allow you to see exactly what you're getting. I hope you don't have to return anything, because I want you to love it!

If you would like to return an item for a refund, you must notify me and have the item on it's way back to me within seven days (a week) of its arrival to you. All expenses and return shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer. It must be packaged shipped properly and carefully, just as I put great care to send it to you. You will be refunded your money (The original cost of the item without shipping) when the item is back in my possession at CharmingShop and in resale condition. If item is noticeably worn, torn or damaged in any way, the product can not be resold, and the refund will not take place.

Please take note that all earrings are non-refundable for hygienic reasons.

All items are packaged carefully and will be shipped to you safely. However in the event that any damages do occur or the item does not arrive, please contact me for additional service and attention. I will work through the situation with you personally.
All my transactions go through Paypal. Shipping is not included in the price of the items. It will be added to your total at the point of sale. I ship your purchase once the transaction has gone through and I have finished packaging it up nice and pretty for you. As stated on each of my item listings, that will be in 1-3 business days. Please ensure you have listed your correct address, as that is where it will be sent to. Your Paypal and Etsy address should match up. If you would like to cancel an order, it must be cancelled before your item has been shipped and has left my possession. After that I can't offer a cancellation. So in the event you do want to cancel, please contact me right away so I can stop my shipping process.
I only calculated my shipping for Canada and the U.S., but don't worry! If you need your item to be shipped to a different country, I will do that for you. Just notify me and I will calculate your shipping and add your location to the item(s) you wish to buy! I ship my items through Canada Post and I weigh and calculate each shipping cost before hand, which you can see on the bottom of each item listing. When you purchase an item, the shipping cost will be added to the total cost. I try to be as accurate as possible, to ensure you are paying the best price. In the event my calculations are off by over $1, I will refund you the remainder. As I said in the payment policy, I have my packages in the mail within 1-3 business days. Look for it in 2-4 weeks (but most likely sooner than that!) Please allow time for your item to be shipped. Every item will be shipped the same way. Right now CharmingShop will not offer insurance, shipping upgrades or item tracking on our orders. Customers are responsible for any international customs, fees or additional taxes on their packages.
