About

Creating Modern Keepsakes from Vintage Memories

MY MISSION
I don’t just stamp words on old silverware…. I create personal and memorable keepsakes using treasures of the past.

I know how tough it is to find that unique and one of a kind gift that the recipient will just love. I myself, cannot give a gift just for the sake of giving one. It needs to mean something and it has to come from the heart.

My mission is to search out the most beautiful patterns of silverware and create gorgeous and meaningful keepsakes for your mother, your father, your sister or your brother and everyone in between… and maybe even for you!

WHY I DO THIS
Since I started this business I have made many people happy and confident in their gift giving. And that makes me happy knowing I am providing such a personal and unique gift that you can’t find in any department store.

I also love the freedom owning my own business gives me which allows me to spend quality time with my young family before they aren’t so young anymore. I love being available for all the field trips at school, going to gymnastics and swimming lessons, and most importantly, I am so grateful that I can be here to tuck them into bed at night and to tell them how much I love them!

You can rest assured that whether you have chosen a piece already stamped or have created your own saying, I will stamp it, polish it, and package it up with the utmost care and love because I know that is how you have chosen your special gift.

MY PROMISE
Every day, I stamp these pieces of silverware with these core values in mind: honesty, loyalty and happiness.

HONESTY
I will always be honest and upfront about the quality of any given piece of silverware. Some of my customers want shiny and “almost” brand new pieces and others love the rustic look that the plate loss and patina gives them.

LOYALTY
I want you, my customer, to keep coming back to my shop to purchase these wonderful keepsakes for your family and friends. I believe to have loyal customers the seller also needs to be loyal therefore, each and every customer will receive a coupon code for their next purchase.

HAPPINESS
I want you to feel happy knowing you have chosen the perfect gift that will, in turn, make the recipient happy. Because who doesn’t like to feel happy?!

WHO I AM
To two little angels (lol!) I am Mommy; to a very understanding and helpful husband I am, most recently, Babe; to my other family and friends I am Elisa and to my customers I am the Keepsake Creator!

When I’m not working and the family is all tucked in for the night, I try to catch the latest episode of Once Upon a Time or Downton Abbey (I’m in withdrawals right now!). Then every night before bed I have to read the latest book that is sitting on my night table… without fail or I can’t fall asleep!

Frequently asked questions

How Will My Silverware be Stamped?

Each letter is hand stamped by me, one at a time therefore, there will be differences in placement and alignment as well as the depth of each impression. This process only adds to the uniqueness and beauty of each piece.

What is Vintage Silverware?

Every piece of silverware you see in my shop is vintage (meaning it’s at least 30 years old) and has markings of its previous life. Each piece will have it’s own unique personality in the form of minor scratches, dings, pitting and patina. I just love imagining the life they had before, don’t you?!

Vintage silverware was not meant to withstand the high heat of modern day dishwashers so please hand wash your keepsake to keep it looking great. It will also tarnish over time but that is easily removed with a touch of silver polish however, leaving a bit of patina in the grooves of the pattern looks absolutely gorgeous! ;)

Custom and personalized orders

I LOVE doing custom orders! I have a special listing just for that! You can find it here:

https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/205799939/custom-stamped-spoon-vintage-teaspoon?ref=shop_home_active_2

If you would like to discuss your custom piece beforehand, please don't hesitate to contact me.

NOTE: Dazzling Dezignz reserves the right to use any custom saying to either sell or to use as an example.

My Shipping Address is Wrong What Do I Do?

An incorrect address CANNOT be changed after a purchase is made. If you have given the wrong shipping address please make your purchase again with the correct address and contact me to cancel the previous order.

I cannot be held responsible if a package comes back to me due to an incorrect or incomplete address. The buyer will be responsible for additional shipping charges that will occur due to an incorrect or incomplete address. These charges will need to be paid before the package will be re-sent.

How is My Order Shipped?

Your package is sent by regular mail (Canada) and Light Packet (US and International) using Canada Post unless you have chosen a shipping upgrade.

How Can I Get My Keepsake By a Certain Date?

My current production time before shipping is 5 business days (I do not work on weekends or holidays).

Dazzling Dezignz does not guarantee a delivery date for ANY order so please be sure you have enough time to receive it.

Do You Offer Bulk Discounts?

I hand stamp each order by hand using metal letter stamps and a hammer. My products are not mass produced. Because of the time involved with each piece I am unable to offer a bulk discount outside of my wholesale relationships.

When Will My Item Ship?

Currently my production time before shipping is 5 business days however, during peak times (eg. Valentine's Day and Christmas) it can be longer.

If you need your order in a rush, I do offer a rush fee as well as shipping upgrades at check out. The rush fee can be found here:
