So far no product at the 15 day mark. As well as no reply from shop owner. This was a piece I needed for a custom order which the customer is now getting unhappy I don't know where my product is. No tracking on it, never marked shipped. I hate leaving bad reviews, but without any communication I don't know what to tell my customer, and am now spending extra money to order from another company in order to fulfill my customers needs. It looks like I should have read more reviews already on the page.

Ordered these skins June 10th. Needed them by the 25th. Tried contacting the seller, she said her mom was dying, (which was probably a lie too.) I tried to empathize & be patient. By July1st I cancelled my order and requested a refund. It's now July 17th and I still have NOT received my money back. This woman still has my money and as usual keeps saying "she refunded me days ago" more lies. DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS SHOP unless you want to get ripped off, love hearing lies & excuses & never want to actually receive your items & GOOD LUCK trying to get your money back from this woman. I feel completely robbed and taken advantage of. LIES. EXCUSES. JULY 17TH ... STILL NO REFUND. Absolutely ridiculous!

1) Not only was this order paid back awhile ago,but 2)The review contains private information as to why it was going to be late that I was only offering to her, mt private customer, not the entire communitity (My mom did technically die (was in a coma for weeks), and I put my shop on vacation mode...I did already give her her refund too!) This should be deleted out of common courtesy. EXTREMELY RUDE CUSTOMER

First, I never received my item. I tried communicating with this seller and was given excuse after excuse. She was having a family emergency but after nearly a month of not receiving my items I found other materials to use for my project. I requested a cancellation AND a refund. Seller "says" she refunded me days ago. But I have still not received my money and my bank records show NO refunds from this shop in or any refunded deposits for that matter and have made it clear to me there are NO pending refund transactions either. I feel robbed and completely taken advantage of. I will never shop this shop again. Awful customer service. Look down this list of reviews and you will soon see she has a habit of doing this to other's as well. She will take your money, not send your product out & then keep your money. It's thievery.

I'm still waiting to finish cleaning some salvaged rib bones for the project, but I'm really happy with the color and quality! I'm going to use it for a cuff bracelet. Thank you again!

Welcome to our shop! We hope you will enjoy looking at our Fine Fish Leathers. These eco-friendly skins are a great source for crafters and DIY artists. Instead of throwing the skins away when they are used for food, we took the skins, recycled them, vegetable tanned them, and were able to re-purpose them for crafters who love bookbinding, journaling, jewelry making, and more. Every piece is one of a kind! No two pieces will be the same.

My preferred payment method is PayPal (which also accepts credit card without needing an account).
Delivery cannot begin until payment has been received. If I have not received payment after two days, I will attempt to contact you before canceling your order.
Shipping
Items are shipped within 3-5 business days.
On the average shipping takes 3-5 days domestic delivery, and 12 days overseas. Most of the time, it is much faster then this, and many of my customers enjoy receiving their leathers much faster then they anticipated.

I am not responsible for lost packages by the Post Office or any other shipping company. Goods are sent at your risk. The registered mail will cost extra.

Refunds and Exchanges
We hope that you will be happy with your purchase, however, there are those times that you bought the wrong item, or realized another color would be better for the project you are working on, or there was something wrong with the piece you received.
