Shop policies

Last updated on November 5, 2013
We want everyone to be happy with both their visit and once they receive their Rayvn's Lace goods. If you have any questions about our shop policies, we'll be delighted to help.

Etsy encourages courtesy and civility and so do we. Lets be considerate and kind to one another in addition. There are wars on every continent, women and children are being exploited, the planet is in peril, and there's no end in sight to the insanity. Every act of friendliness is an island of reason in that insanity.

We do make mistakes. We try to own them and fix them. Common courtesy and civility run both ways. Have a sense of reality when you deal with people and weigh your little gripes against a bigger picture with all those horrors going on.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment is due at purchase and in 5 days of putting items through to checkout unless we have made and agreed to other terms for your budget and situation. We accept; Visa, Master Card, Paypal, e- checks and US Postal Money Orders. Sorry, we cannot accept foreign money orders or cashiers checks, nor monies drafted on foreign accounts. We're just not set up for it.

On large art pieces, special listings, jewelry or gems or items. we may ask for a reasonable non-refundable deposit to be sure we're dealing with interested buyers and not holding an item or spending money on spupples or items which may be of interest to other clients.
Shipping
Shipping is first class US Postal unless we' ve made other arrangements on heavy or urgent items. Handling includes delivery confirmation, kraft envelopes, recycled tissue, tape, padding and a couple of dimes for gas spread out amongst everybody. We generally try to ship twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursday or Friday. Sometimes we miss due to personal obligations or having whiny days. If you need rush service, contact us BEFORE you buy as we may not be able to accomodate you. Rush service can incur additional charges.

ON POSTAGE: Postage is not a money making opportunity. There are no vacations on your small change. The amount charged per item is very reasonable and we very often eat the extra pennies charged for handling and wrapping.

We are no longer actively refunding excess shipping due to the enormous amout of time and tracking efforts required. If you want less postage on multiple items, let us combine your order BEFORE you pay for it to reduce it.

We do not indemnify the post office and we buy confirmation to show when we ship. We are not responsible for a package once it is properly packaged and it is accepted at the post office.

Foreign packages are confirmed via the customs forms numbers required to send anything out of the US. We mark sales as 'shipped' once it is pulled and packed and in the big tub headed for the post office to keep from overlooking your important sale. That doesn't mean that it's on the counter at the Post Office. Please ask if you want the tracking number until we figure out an automated way to send this out to each and every buyer.

Purchase insurance if you want to protect your purchase after it leaves our hands. Insurance may be required and will be added in on high dollar items at our discretion.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AND CUSTOMS:
Please don't ask us to mark your international packages with 'gift' or underestimate the value on them. We WILL put true value on the items as required by law and you will be responsible for any customs due.

Please do not purchase through friends in the US and then ask us to send your package to another country. A: Shipping and handling charges are very fair B: Your package will sit on the packing table until adequate shipping is paid if we ship it at all. C: We try to ship to only Paypal verified addys to insure that someone from Mozambique is not happily ordering refrigerators on your account but cannot check every single one for accuracy. If it's American shipping rates, we'll ship to the American address. D: If you think the shipping to you is exorbitant, please check the postal site realizing that your item may weigh more than the ounce used as a base measure for the rate to your area or zone.
Refunds and Exchanges
ON RETURNS: If I mess up, it's a no brainer-100% return including the return postage. Otherwise, I will accept any item you aren't happy with if it's in the same condition as I sent it if you clear it with me within 3 days of receiving it. There are no returns on items cut from bolts or clothing. Shipping is not refundable. Delivery confirmation must be provided on all approved returns. You have the option of money back or store credit, whichever you prefer. I take good pictures. If you're unsure, I'll send you more.
Additional policies and FAQs
ON PHOTO COLORS/DESCRIPTIONS: Different monitors show different colors. Each monitor interprets those tiny little pixels a frog's hair different than another. If you're unsure of the color, let us know and we'll send you the closest number in a graphic designers color scale book or in Pantone's online chart. When we say 'scarlet', we may be referring to a color's 'mood' as well as the actual tone and hue.

ON YARDAGE CUT FROM BOLTS OR LENGTHS: We will cut yardage only after it is paid for and just before ship in case you change your mind. Which you are entitled to do here.

INCLUDED IN LISTING: Does not include backdrops or mannequins, nor the pencils, mouse or computer screen that occaisionally sneak by photo brushing to remove background noise. The teal and gold paisley pashmina shawl is special to me because a truly handsome Italian guy named Marcello thought of me and brought it back for me when he went to New York once. It's nice to remember that handsome Italian men think you rock whether you're a senior citizen or a nubile beauty queen.

RESERVES, SPECIALS AND UNPAID SALES: We will hold a special for you 7 days. After that it will be returned to stock and cancelled unless you have made prior arangements or agreements with us. If not paid for in 7 days, we will cancel it and return it to stock. You'll go on our 'special list' and a hoo-doo will be initiated in your honor. If you've truly been able to hide your own Easter eggs due to stress or a head injury, we'll let you buy the item again and pay immediately. Stuff sitting idle in a box is not working to earn its keep. Like middle age children, it needs to have a home of its own.


ON FEEDBACK:
Please note. I will no longer automatically leave positive feedback until I see yours unless you're one of my repeat buyers and baby lambs who I try to spoil rotten any way I can.

BRIDES: For everyone's sake, please do not order a vital item needed for your wedding with you due to walk the aisle less than a week away. Indeed. I suggest you buy all pertinent items at least 6 months to a year in advance. It is sure to be the wrong color, style, shape or texture or something other minute detail to displease you.

I will not be responsible for late shipments, snags with your local postal service, the sinking of mail ships, ferry service, airplane crashes, tornadoes tearing through your local post office, death of any camel or bush runner, destruction, breakdown or any fire to lorie/ rickshaw/ Conestoga wagon/ buckboard or outrigger canoe that is relevant to delivering your package.

I've had very bad luck with brides in the past, including during my business years. I believe that every bride harbors a secret screaming desire on some deep level to be rescued from marriage before it starts and she's trapped. She takes that anger out on at least one surrogate - usually the seamstress, florist, caterer, photographer, hotel, disk jockey, or hotel that rents her the room. SOMEBODY ALWAYS has to have 'ruined' her special day. Otherwise, there'd be nothing to talk about when she realizes that after all the fuss and money is spent, she's still left with a circumstance that is scientifically proven to shorten a woman's life, or that will end in divorce in disappointment. Roughly 60% of marriages end in divorce. Second or third marriages have only about 20% of couples remaining happily married. A full eighty percent of repeat marriages end in divorce. Do both of us a favor and shack up. It's cheaper and cleaner.

If you cannot read my store policies nor have anyone who can read them for you, if you do not agree with them, go elsewhere Cinderella. I'd rather spend my energy pampering the majority of my great customers and fave darlings here than dealing with weenie little petulant comments.

I also see that I need to add the following from my SECOND negative:

FREE TUTES LISTINGS: Do not, I repeat DO NOT put these in your cart unless you're feeling grateful and have 20 cents hanging around in the bottom of your pocket. All the information that I have the free tute listing up for is FREE. That's why it's called 'Free Tutorial'. And pleased don't get pissed if you don't "see it" in your package when it arrives. You can read. You have a printer. Print it off for your own use or run back here every time you need to see it. I did the work and the research and I'm giving you the info FREE. No charge. Nada deneiro.

GLOW-IN-THE-DARK, PHOTO REACTIVE, LIGHT RESPONSIVE TRIMS:

I am ever bemused and entertained at the questions that come out of the shallow end of the gene pool. Please note that the light reactive trims we carry do NOT have electrical lights or LEDs built in, although we'd like to carry those animals for you one of these days. They either glow in the dark because they have phosphorescent materials woven in with the fibers, or they are are light reactive. That means that there has to be light coming from a bulb somewhere - preferrably the one that should be one above your head - in order to react.

Black light or Glow Light reactive neon fibers will shimmer and shake when they are exposed to a Black Light lamp or Glow Light lamp like the ones that pop out of the wall at your local Rave and Ecstasy establishment.

If you cannot get these to work knowing the simple principles above, it's probably a good idea that you leave these hi-tech items to someone with a brighter bulb to work with.

VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE ITEMS:

Vintage means used. Antique means used a lot more. They both refer to age and value. These items are sought out specifically for these qualities by designers and collector who value the buff and patina, the frise` or chenille, stains and occasionally blood marks that beauty mark these goods. Please understand this when you order from a specialty shop such as Rayvn's Lace who carries these items. They are pricey because they aren't being made much or at all anymore. They are yellowed and sometimes unwashed like a good cheese or Saar Valley or Alsation Riesling.

If you're looking for pristine and unsullied goods, please look at our virginal contemporary laces for your choices.

TRADES:
If you see something you absolutely cannot live without that is not in your budget, talk to me and lets see what we can do.

I have given a prized item away when I felt the situation warranted it but this is my income as I am unable to workout in the corporate world any longer. I want us all to bring beauty to the world with the thing we make and to decorate our lives with each other as we travel together.

I wish for you Bright Blessings and happiness.

Warmest Regards,

Jeannie
